Question about Cars & Trucks
Then you are using the wrong marks or don't have a manual to verify the correct way to install the belt. Many require special camshaft holding tools.

SOURCE: 2.0 L Timing Belt Marks
hi if its a twin cam ford engine you wont find marks on the cam pulleys.what you have to do is take off the cam cover and look at the back of the cams you will see slots in them ,what you have to do is you can buy the timing kit for the engine at the main dealers or you can make you own using a flat piece of metal 5mm thick and100 mm long this fits into the two slots at the rear of the cams to lick them in place and th crankshaft pulley mark should be in line also.best of luck.

The cam pulleys turn 3 or more turns to one of the camshaft. You need to find someone that is experienced on this vehicle. Just aligning marks does not mean its in sync.

dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about

It is possible that this is a zero clearence engine. Meaning that the valves can hit the pistons if the cam timing is off or the timing belt breaks. I would strongly suspect that you have bent valves. This can easily be diagnosed with a compression test. If valves are bent the repair will require at least a rebuilt cylinder head and gaskets. It is also possible that there could be piston damage as well. The reason it is not starting is it has no compression due to bent valves.
