Question about 1994 Volkswagen Jetta
You can go to the library and look at a book or check it out there for your car a haynes or chiltons manual or if you want you can buy it at a autoparts store or go online to http.www.alldatadiy.com and purchase an online book, I got in trouble for giving out these pictures, as I was not the copyright holder so those are your choices.

The timing marks are stamped into the steel pulley and flywheel and there should be a pointer attached to the engine. Degreasing the engine with GUNK and power washing it should uncover them.
I'm pretty sure it's crucial to have the engine timed to TDC as it relates to the end of compression/beginning of power stroke, and NOT the end of exhaust stroke.
With gas engines I do the following, to determine the TDC, by removing the #1 plug and insert a long straw, while turning the motor by hand watch for the maximum height of the straw, this will give you a TDC but knowing if its on the exhaust or compression stroke can only be determined if you were watching the closure of the intake valve indicating the begining of the next power stroke. Once you have this set look for the timing marks again. if you can't find them pick up a service manual at the library or autoparts store for photos and instructions.
