the correct timing position can be done by locating top dead center (TDC) on cylinder number 1 and by aligning the timing slots found on the end of the cams opposite the cam gears then properly adjusting the tensioner pulley

There is no timing mark for the crank pulley. It has a ring behind it with teeth. One of the teeth are missing. The crankshaft position sender picks up a magnetic electrical pulse that determines when that cylinder is to fire. The timing is controlled by the PCM (Power Control Module). The timing can't be set.
