Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
For the lower pulley, check that timing mark on the pulley is
aligned with timing mark on engine.
On the head, check that "I" mark on intake camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover and "E" mark on exhaust camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on cylinder head cover.

SOURCE: 2000 Kia timing belt specs
this should be the info your looking for.
remove timing cover, on the left cam sprocket(closer to inside of vehicle) you will see the letter (I)for intake and a notch above it on the valve cover align those marks.Next on the right cam sprocket you will see the letter (E) for exhaust and a notch above it on the valve cover align those marks.Last you have a notch on your crank sprocket, align that notch with the arrow just above it.Align all marks then turn belt to revolutions and see if marks are stilled aligned if not try again until you get it right.If so put everything back together and "happy driving!"
Let me know if you need further assistance ok
