On any engine you should find timing marks on the end of camshaft which line up with Mark on the crankshaft. TDC is top dead center which is when the first most piston is on it's compression stroke. When you move the crank to TDC the firstmost or number one piston will be on the compression stroke. Turning the camshaft to align with the timing mark on crankshaft will put the engine in proper valve timing.

Check the Air Filter, and replace it if necessary, also get your AIS(Air Induction System) checked, maybe the wrong fuel air mixture ratio is reaching the engine resulting in lower performance. If the problem is NOT in the morning's first start and its occurring when you drive the car for a few kilometers, then the engine valves have a problem.
In the next oil change activity, have your engine washed by draining the oil from it and filling the engine with around 1 liter of petrol with the oil drain clip in place, and the start your engine at idle for about 30-35 seconds, and turn it off and drain the petrol from engine by removing the oil drain clip, it'll remove all the dirt from the engine and then use some synthetic oil for engine. This whole procedure will give you loads of performance and your car performance will be like brand new again!
