the cooling system has to be bled. Did you bleed the cooling system ? first you fill the radiator with coolant and water. Then turn on the engine and and run to operating temperature. Most cars have a bleeding screw located at the thermostat housing. Turn of the engine and with a fairl long screwdriver turn the screw counter clockwise and remove the air until coolant is the only thing coming out. Refill and repeat procedure.Refill with coolant until full. Be careful not to burn yourself with the steam coming out with the air.

SOURCE: need timing marks ford ranger
The timing marks are on your timing belt cover. There is a little circle on the bottom right of the cover near the harmonic balancer that you can pop out to see if your distributor accesory gear is in the correct position. The camshaft has a triangle on the inside of the gear that you can line up with this accesory gear. The bottom of the timing belt cover has your timing tick marks and you may have to clean off this rectangular piece that is sticking out on the cover to see the marks. A good timing gun and remembering where the number 1 cylinder on your distributor is a good start to timing your motor. Refer to a Haynes Manual and it will give you a good guide line on how to time your motor with TDC. I hope you have good luck with this!
