For timing, on 1981 and later 4 cyl engines (from the Haynes manual):
1. Turn camshaft so both valves for #1 cylinder are closed, and turn the crankshaft so #1 piston is at top dead center (woodruff key should be pointing up).
2. Engage the camshaft sprocket (with stamped numbers facing out) into the timing chain, and install the chain around the crankshaft sprocket. The bright links on the chain should be aligned with the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket (on the right side as you look at it) and with the number "2" stamped into the camshaft sprocket, which should also be on the right side as you look at it.
3. Install the camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft, aligning the camshaft dowel pin with the number "2" hole near the center of the sprocket.
For the firing order and wiring routing for the 8 plug 4 cylinder engine: (Plugs on the intake manifold side are coded "I", and on the exhaust manifold side are coded "E")
Wire to 1I should be connected to tower on the distributor facing directly to the front of the vehicle. Going counterclockwise from there, the order is (1I), 2E, 3I, 1E, 4I, 3E, 2I, and 4E.

do you have a hole in the piston or gasket? If in the piston it is most likely from coolant or water. If water, could be a cracked head, or being sucked in through the intake and building up in the 6th cyl. I have a lexus that had a hole in the side of the motor and noon could figure out why. I pulled the head and found water... Put new block in and egr codes came up. Pulled EGR and found it was sucking in water, due to an exhaust leak that was allowing condensation to build and would not blow out once in the egr tube. If you face the same problem (hole in block) I am going to say too much compression. Could be from head gasket not being torqued properly and leaking cooland, cracked head, or wrong spark plugs-and worst case scenario which I have yet to witness, bad spark plug gap. Not likely on your car, i would think.
