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

SOURCE: timing mark
Cam has a "V". Crank has a keyway. Both should be directly on top of the pullys toward the top of the engine. This is an interference engine. Do not force. After replacing the timing belt, turn the crank by ratchet (clockwise) two complete turns to assure. Should feel some resistence but not more than you can easily overcome. If it stops dead and you KNOW it's "just not right" you are 180 out and need to start over.
