Steve, You can find information at several web sites. One is All Data but they will charge you for each individual vehicle but Auto Zone will provide most vehicles for free.

It is not rare for people to have problems with engine after replacing the timing belt. In all my cars I do it by myself. It is not impossible, but you will spend more time than a professional. If you decide to do it by yourself, then get the Haynes Repair Manual (Based on a complete tear down and rebuilt), specific for your car. I have one for each of my cars. Go to the part Engine, and use the chapter Timing belt removal inspection, and Top Dead Center (TDC) location, and put the number one piston at TDC on the compression stroke. This can be found by putting the thumb over the spark plug hole and the pressure will push your finger upward till piston reaches the upper point. You have the crank shaft with a wrench. Now you are in compression stroke. To locate Top Dead Center Location, this can be done by inserting a long blunt object into the spark plug hole. Note the point where the object stops moving out this is the TDC.
Are you sure that the piston at cylinder N#1 is at TDC on compression stroke. Please check it out, and if not correct.The timing marks can be lining up correctly, ONLY if the piston at cylinder N31 is at TDC in compression stroke. I repeat again in compression stroke.
