Lexus IS200 1GFE is overheating the coolant is boiling. What is the cause and what to do??

lost of possibilities, but without looking at it I would suspect the thermostat is stuck closed. if this is true it would only overheat when the vehicle is hot. Thermostat would require replacement.

How can i determined the timeng mark of the camshaft in the v6 kia cadenza there is 3timeng marks in one camshaft and this engine is four overhead camshaft

To ensure you don't get the timing expensively wrong I advise vehicle-specific information.

The additional marks could be marks for safe dismantling or assembly or marks for performing a valve timing check or perhaps a cam sprocket made for a variety of models.

It should be relatively easy to determine which mark to use, though you mention nothing about whether other marks are present and which cylinders are served by that camshaft.
Assuming other marks are present and having removed the spark plugs and exposed the valve gear the engine can be set at TDC on the timing cylinder and whatever other marks there is aligned, ensuring the valves of number 1 cylinder are both closed and the cams are in the compression position for that cylinder.

With the engine in this position the valves of the first cylinder in the second half of the firing order should be in the overlap position, which I think is number 4 (I don't have data to hand).

Setting No 1 and No 4 pistons and valves in this way should then indicate which of the three marks are to be used for timing, again assuming there is a static mark to align one of the sprocket marks with.

It isn't unusual for engines built by robots to require setting tools for subsequent maintenance and repair; in other words it isn't unusual for engines built by robots to have no timing marks at all...

Setting an engine timing by logic is really only suitable as an emergency procedure unless verified by TDC finder, degree discs and dial gauges along with valve timing information.
Manufacturer information is a much easier method.

I have no compression on my 1998 corolla what could be the problem ?

This phenomenon is called blow by. This usually happens when the engine compression escapes through the worn out piston rings due to the severely scratched cylinder wall. It also happens after the engine becomes severely overheated due to the loss of coolant or the car is driven with ruptured element air cleaner for longer period of time or due to the aging factor.
In this case the engine requires complete overhaul. It includes the replacement of the following parts to help enable the engine to perform satisfactorily as long as for many years without any problem.
The dire requirement here is to maintain the oil clearances of various parts during the machining process to ensure the reliability and dependability of the engine.
Engine parts to be replaced with original:
- Engine valves.
- Valve guides,
- Piston set (oversize).
- Ring set (oversize).
- Main and big end bearing shell set (Oversize).
- Crankshaft thrust (oversize).
- Timing belt and bearing set.
- Gasket set complete kit.
- Oil filter.
- Element air cleaner.
- Engine oil.
- Silicone RTV Grey.
- Radiator coolant.
- New valves and guides fitting and valve seat redressing.
- Valve clearance adjustment.
- Cylinder re-boring and honing.
- Crankshaft grinding, main and big end bearings fitting, and main line checking/ correction.
- Connecting rod alignment.
- Radiator cleaning and cooling system inspection.
Hope that works.
Thanks for visiting Fixya.

I have problem with my engine 4K toyota. It heard an engine noise during idling, for my little knowledge in engine repair, can you give me any procedure mannuals in adjusting engine valves for my...

Valve Clearance Valve clearance is there to allow the valves to cool in between combustion events (spark), and to make sure the valve closes properly and contains the combustion explosion. You need to cool the valves a little bit, the exhaust valve moreso than the inlet, as it's what sees the most heat as spent burnt gases go past it into the exhaust port. Run too little clearance and you'll cause the valve to "weld" a little bit to its' seat every time it closes, and then take seat metal off again when it opens. Do this enough times and you burn out the valve seat and need the head reconditioned. However, by running less clearance, the valve stays open for that little but longer, and you get more air in and out of the motor, and make more power. Run too much clearance and your motor just sounds like a diesel and loses power and tappet rattle annoys you while you're driving, so it's better to err on the side of caution.
The stock valve clearance (0.008" inlet / 0.012" exhaust, warm) is pretty good for any of the cams I've listed above, they're well-sized street cams, not really wild top heavy race cams that require super high compression to work, so don't be afraid to close the valves up a bit from the suggestions of the cam grinder, which will usually say between 0.010" and 0.014". There are a few ways to set your valve clearances:
Yellow Book Method This is from the factory 3K/4K/5K engine manual, aka The Yellow Books. It's the quick and lazy method.
Set engine to #1 TDC. Crank pulley timing mark should be on 0, distributor rotor should be pointing towards spark plug 1 or 2. Set tappets (counting from the front) 1, 2, 3 and 5. Rotate engine 360 degrees, crank pulley to 0 again, distributor rotor turned 180 degrees. Set tappets 4, 6, 7 and 8.
Nine Method I've never really gotten into doing this, takes too much time and maths for my liking :P Rotate the engine through its' range of movement, as one valve is "on the rock" of its' max lift, subtract the valve number from 9 and that's the tappet you should be setting. For example, if #8 valve is open, set clearance on valve #1. If valve #7 is open, set clearance on #2. And so on.
Stewart uses this method, and rotates the camshaft through its entire base circle and sets the clearance at the highest point. Which is a pretty good idea, as it compensates for the possibility that the base circle has been ground unevenly, and allows you to run the proper valve clearance that you want to run, instead of something that may be a few thou larger in reality.
