On a 2.4, there are no timing marks...There are holes in the cam gears that need to be aligned with corresponding holes in the head.
Though it's not terribly difficult to do, it must be done precisely according to instructions or valves will hit the pistons and destroy the engine. You can find instructions for this procedure in haynes and other vehicle service manuals. (too long to write out here).
Remember...this is an exact install...you cannot just get close!!!
Good luck! Post back if you need further specific instructions with any part of the job.

Your crank and cams all have marks on them, they might be just dots, but they are there, your new belt should have marks on it too. Line up all the marks, and you should be all set. I take a white out marker to make them stand out better, and I mark the belt the same way. If your new belt doesn't have marks on it, look at the old and see if it does, then transfer the marks to it. These have got to be right or I will give your engine about 11miles. Clamp down the cam pulley before you remove the old belt, they have a tendency to move.
