Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
What about them? Theres one on the crank and one on the cam. Line them up. If not sure, bring #1 to TDC (top dead center), check by removing spark plug and turn over by hand with finger over hole. When air hisses out, carefully place in long 1/4" extension and watch it go up, and when it peaks its at #1 TDC. Marks should now be aligned.

well learn how to time engine with no timing marks,its easy .look on end of cams for a slot or some sort of mark on the cam bearings caps .If you cant find anything then no 1
piston at the top and both valves closed with cam lobes in the air so to speak.dont forget to turn crank twice with a rachet before you evan think of trying to start engine.
