if you don't have a manual which you can buy at a parts store get one if your a mcguiver kind of a guy or girl then what you need to do is take out the #1 spark plug, matter a fact take them all out because it will aid you in spinning the motor by hand. next grab a metal coat hanger and cut the ends off so that you have a strait rod insert it into #1 spark hole ,now with the help of your aprentice turn the engine so that the hanger is at its highest point which is top dead center at that point if you remove the motor mount and timing cover you will notice a pulley on the bottom which is your crank there will be either one ore two pulleys at the top depending on whether the engine is dohc or sohc ( dual over head camshaft or single). now the top pully's have a notch pointing at i believe 12 oclock position if your belt is not broken then grab some white out and mark the position of the pulley's by putting a mark on the pully's and on the surfsce of the engine so if they move and they will you know where to go. if the belt is broken buy the book or call local dealer and ask for a print out of the timing marks, as far as setting the timing of your distributer the dist is connected dirrectly to the camshaft so if your top pully or pullys are lined up so is your ignition timing for the most part . if you do this job i would recomend replacing the water pump because you'll have to remove the timing belt to get the water pump out at a later date also replace as many pully's with smoothe surfaces they are useally called idler or tensioner pully's they have bearings in them and they do whear out.this job should take you 4 to 6 hours if your a bit of a handy person. you will need 10mm 12mm 14mm 17mm 19mm sockets and wrenches what i would do if you have a floor jack and stands i would lift the front side of the car and place on jacks and put the floor jack under the oil pan with a piece of wood 2by 4, remove the tire and the plastic shield to have acsess to the timing cover last thing and ill shut up if you don't have an impact gun to remove the crank bolt i would take large chanell locks and try to secure the pully from moving turn the bolt counter clockwise to remove try to hold pully firmly so as not to scrath the surface remember measure twice cut once great website for car info good luck grass hopper .
