When replacing a head gasket we had to remove the timing belt. We cannot get it in time. We need to know how to time the engine and where the timing marks are located. We have tried multiple times to set this. One time the car spurted and popped. We realize there are marks to set this by but we have been unable to locate them.

Engines should be set at the timing position prior to any removal work, these are an interference type engine, that is if the valve timing is not set correctly engine damage may occur as the valves will strike the pistons and they will bend. See pic for correct alignment, but I do feel that if it was more than a few teeth out you have now bent valves in the head.
