Inside of the top gear there is a hash mark, you need to turn the gear so that the hash mark is top center. (you need a second person to help you for the next step.) You then have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside of the hole. You then have to turn the bottom gear until the first cylinder comes all the way up. You then put the new belt on the car without moving the two gears.

Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

When installing timing belt, where do I place the marks on the cam and the crank?

Go to any autoparts store and get a manual for your vehicle. Installing a timing belt incorrectly can cause major engine damage. If this belt broke while driving you may already have bent valves. Timing belts should be repalced every 60,000 miles.

Timing belt

not to worry. if timing belt broke your engine is fine. it is an overhead cam engine. although there is a good chance depending on your motor size. that one of the composite sprockets the belt runs on broke also. it is common.

not sure what engine you have but check compression on the 2 cylinders in question,if they read below 100 psi more than likley the pistons hit some valves and they are bent, heads would need to be removed replace valves,a big deal
