If it is a V8 set the motor at top dead center #1 cylinder a the very top and the cam mark should line up with the middle mark on the crank sprocket or o degrees advanced.

it doesnt have a belt, it has a chain. there should be one or two lil dots on the chain and like a very small like on the sprocket, make the dots on the chain line up exact with the sprocket and your good

There is one mark (dot) on your came sprocket and one mark (dot) on your crank sprocket right about your crank "key" slot. Align those two marks (cam sprocket mark down, crank sprocket mark up). Now turn your crank 2 complete revolutions and verify that those two marks are in the same location that you originally set them. Obviously you will have to have the chain on. I just installed my millionth and one yesterday.

The cover on the passenger side of the motor has long lines on it, those are your timing marks. Hold the timing gun above them and look directly down to the crankshaft pully.

There are no timing marks. The timing is controlled by the PCM. Power control module. It is not possible to set the timing with a timing gun.

The timing marks for a 2002 Ford Explorer are located on the timing chain and cam shaft sprocket. They must be aligned with each other to set the initial timing.
