On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.
Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.
Under the engine block you will find the sump.
On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.
Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.
Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.
When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.
Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.
Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.
Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.
If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.
Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.
Now lower the car to to the ground.
At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.
Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.
If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.
Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.
With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.
Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.
Check the oil level and top up as required.
I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.
This should solve the problem.

Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
