It went dead and when I got it to crank back up it was white smoking. Then it died again. Now it will not crank. I was told it was the timing and I removed the belt. My cams turned and now I don't know how to get it back in time.

White smoke is an indication of coolant burning in the combustion chamber-If you haven't done a valve timing best have someone that knows to help.

I have done one before. I just don't know where the timing marks need to be. And I was told that it was a coolant problem.

You are like the fourth person to tell me that. But I have to put the timing belt back on. And I need to know where to line the timing marks up. So that it is back in time. Do I put all of them straight up like on most cars or what?
