If you have never done this kind of work before, buy an aftermarket service manual to guide you. Timing belts or chains improperly installed will cause rather expensive damage to an engine if, as most are, yours is an 'interference' engine, meaning that the valves and pistons can contact (and damage) each other if the cam timing is wrong.
Haynes or Chilton will have them available for your car and the $17-$30 is a good price for the amount of info you then will have. Most all auto parts stores will have them available.

SOURCE: need to now where timing marks are located on 1997

Hello carolnaes: My name is Roger and I will help. The picture of the timing marks are attached. I will caution though that Mitchell repair calls this a interference motor. Meaning if the engine turns over with the belt off. The valves of the engine can and may be damaged. I also checked All Data and they said it could possible cause valve damage. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger39f6dc5.jpg

Power steering squeals when turning full lock on huyndai coupe gen1 . I have replaced the pump but still seems the same.Does it just need a new belt or tightening?

I would try tightening the belt to see if it that helps, but first you should probably inspect the belt to make sure that it isn't frayed or cut to save yourself some headaches later on. Also check to see if the other belts need to be tightened as well.

Hyundai accent coupe 1.3, 1998

It sounds like there could be 2 possible problems. 1) the spark plugs might be too old and do not convert power efficiently causing it to shudder or even stall when power needs increase (I suggest a tune-up). Or 2) the timing could be off and needs to be adjusted by a mechanic, while you're at it you might want to see how worn your timing belt is, if it no longer grips it can cause off time explosions in the valve chambers and you'll definitely get some shaking action and even stalling and if it snaps, the car won;t be going anywhere (til the belt it gets replaced).
