The cams themselves usually don't have an alignment mark, but the backing plates behind them do, and there are marks on the timing belt as well. To properly time the engine, what you need to do before taking the old belt off is to put the engine in a particular position, with cylinder number one at top-dead-center on the compression stroke. This is how to do it.

First, find out which cylinder is number one. If you have a four-cylinder engine, it's the one closest to the belts, farthest from the transmission. If it's a V6, there may be casting marks on the engine that tell you which is number one. Remove that cylinder's spark plug and leave the hole open. Put your hand over the hole, and have someone "jog" the engine - turn the key in quick shots, 1/4 of a second or so. What you want is to feel a blast of air against your hand. That's how you know that cylinder is on the compression stroke. Once you feel that, stop jogging the engine. Put a very long, thin rod (one of those telescoping magnetic wands available at the parts store for $1 is perfect) down the hole and rest it on the piston. Then, put a socket on the crank pulley and rotate the engine (make sure it's in neutral) and watch the rod raise up. When it stops rising, the piston is at the top of its travel (top dead center position).

Now, look at the timing belt - the marks should be very close to the marks on the backing plates behind the cam gears. Use the socket and ratchet on the crank pulley and rotate the engine further until the marks are aligned. Once they are, you are ready to remove the belt and replace it. When you replace the belt, put it on so that the timing marks on the new belt line up with the timing marks on the backing plates behind the cam gears and the crank pulley.

You may be able to find Hyundai owners' forum online that deals with the Sonata, but usually the forums are geared toward the performance models from a manufacturer. Still, it's worth a shot.

REMOVAL
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Loosen power steering lock bolts and nuts accordingly and remove tension from power steering (P/S) and/or air conditioning (A/C) compressor drive belt.
3. Remove P/S and/or A/C drive belt.
4. Loosen generator mounting bolts and adjusting bolt.
5. Remove generator bolts.
6. Remove water pump pulley.
7. Remove crankshaft pulley.
8. Remove upper and lower timing belt covers.
9. Turn crankshaft so that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate.
Do not move camshaft or crankshaft once timing marks have been correctly positioned.
11. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt.
12. Protect timing belt with a rag.
13. Remove tensioner pulley.
14. Remove timing belt. Mark the direction of timing belt rotation (on the timing belt) for proper reinstallation.

INSTALLATION
1. Install tensioner pulley. Replace tensioner spring whenever timing belt is replaced.
2. Pull tensioner pulley to its furthest point and tighten lock bolt.
3. Check that timing mark on timing belt pulley is aligned with timing mark on engine.
4. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on seal plate.
If existing timing belt is being reused, install belt in proper rotation direction marked prior to removal.
5. Install timing belt onto timing belt pulley first, then idler pulley, exhaust camshaft pulley, intake camshaft pulley, and tensioner pulley in that order.
6. Check that there is no looseness in belt between idler pulley and exhaust camshaft pulley or between intake and exhaust camshaft pulleys.
7. Loosen tensioner pulley lock bolt and allow tensioner spring to apply tension to timing belt.
Do not add additional tension.
8. Tighten tensioner pulley lock bolt to specified torque.
Tightening torque:28~38 lb-ft (38~51 N·m, 3.9~5.2 kg-m)
9. Rotate crankshaft two full revolutions (clockwise only) and align timing mark on timing belt pulley with timing mark on engine block.
10. Check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley are aligned with marks on seal plate.
11. If they are not aligned, remove timing belt and start process from tensioner installation.
12. Measure timing belt deflection by applying moderate pressure midway between camshaft pulleys. If deflection is not correct, repeat from tensioner installation.
Deflection pressure:22 Ib. (98 N, 10 kg)Deflection:0.39~0.50 in. (11~13 mm)
13. Install lower and upper timing belt covers in that order.
Tightening torque:5.8~8.0 Ib-ft (7.9~10.7 N·m, 0.8~1.1 kg-m)
14. Install timing belt guide plate and crankshaft pulley.
Tightening torque:9.0~12.6 lb-ft (12.3~17.2 N·m, 1.3~1.8 kg-m)
15. Install water pump pulley.
Tightening torque:9.0~12.6 lb-ft (12.3~17.2 N·m, 1.3~1.8 kg-m)
16. Install generator belt and adjust the tension.
17. Install P/S and/or A/C drive belt and adjust the tension.
18. Connect negative battery cable.

INSPECTION
Never forcefully twist, turn inside out or bend timing belt. Do not allow oil or grease to come in contact with timing belt.
1. Replace timing belt if it is contaminated with oil or grease.
2. Check timing belt for uneven wear, fraying, peeling, cracking and hardening. Replace timing belt as necessary.
3. Bend timing belt into a "U" shape as shown in figure. Distance "A" must be at least 1.0 in (25 mm).
4. Inspect both idler pulley and tensioner pulley for uneven wear and smooth bearing operation.
5. Inspect camshaft pulleys and timing belt pulley for broken teeth or damage.
Replace any component that shows damage, excessive wear, or that appears prone to a possible failure.

I need to know the camshaft timing on my 1991 corolla. It has the 1.6


With the Keyway on the crankshaft at the 12 O'Clock position the timing mark on the crank shaft gear shiuld line up with the timing mark on the crankcase at the 1 O'Clock position.
For the Camshaft gear, the small hole under the " 4A " on the gear should line up with the indent on the front camshaft bearing cap. The approximate correct oposition of the camshaft gear is also indicated by the No. 4 Cylinder exhaust valves just closing and the inlet valves just opening.
