The upper oil seal on the cam is leaking. It probably wont jump time due to this but the timing belt may be damaged by the oil.

Line crank shaft pulley timing mark on tc mark on timing belt cover. Look at cam shaft timing belt sprocket and locate the small triangle (not diamond shape) located on the plate attached to the timing sprocket. Referencing the timing sprocket look approximately at 5:00 o'clock under the timing sprocket and locate the other small triangle. Line these 2 marks up. Put timing belt on. Make sure the cam shaft sprocket and crank shaft sprocket do not turn while installing the belt. The crank shaft pulley must be removed in order to get the timing belt on.
