SOURCE: timing marks
this is a complex fix. if the timing belt is off, you will have to align both of the cams (V6??) to their respective notches on the back plate that protects the belt. You must also align the crank shaft to TDC, top dead center. Put the belt on (with tensioner off) then put tensioner on and release allen key. turn the engine by hand or using the starter two full rotations, the notches on the tops of the cam pulleys should be perfectly alligned with the notches on the back plate. if not, you missed a notch in the wrong spot and have to try again.
i've done this twice, once on a lexus es250 v6, and again on my 94 camry, its one of the hardest things i've ever done when repairing cars. be patient, have a friend help, don't get frustrated. if you really cant get it, have a mechanic come to your house and drop him a few bills to help you. you'll be glad you did

fFirst of all you must replace the timing belt with new. The second problem you have is it sounds as if you have not set the engine, to the correct position before you removed the belt, it is very difficult to set the marks without everything moving together. If you move one camshaft without the other one moving in unison you will bend valves. I also need an engine code for the correct timing marks. as there are 2 options for this vehicle. It may be cost effective at this stage to employ a good technician to finish the job for you. But if you can give me the engine code i will send the info.
