If you are doing the timing belt and need to find the marks on the cam sprockets , just google 02 protege timing , than go to images. There is a drawing on page 2 of images.
If you are looking for marks on the main pulley to use a timing light on , you probably wont find any. Most modern cars use cam sensors , computers , and electronic ignition . No distributor = no timing adj.

1999 ford contour with DOHC 2.0L motor. Need to find timing marks on crank and cams


It is only advised to do the timing belt with these special tools. For best results, I strongly suggest paying an experienced professional to do this procedure.
Turn crankshaft clockwise. #1 & #4 cylinders are at (general) TDC when the woodruff key is straight up.
I have to say, this is not a job for someone who is not fully prepared. The system will only vary the timing 2 deg and this IS an INTERFERENCE ENGINE. Meaning, there will be catastrophic engine failure if the marks are misaligned, if the belt breaks or if the removal and installation service procedures are not strictly adhered to.
So, here is enough information to get you in real trouble ( in my opinion).

I cant find the correct timing of the timing belt


When you replace a timing belt, it is critical to set the camshafts and the crankshaft to TDC (Top Dead Center) . This is marked on the engine body and shaft pulleys, not on the belt itself. If your belt has not yet been removed, disconnect your plugs or coil wire so the car cannot start, and either crank the engine or put a socket wrench on the crankshaft pulley nut and turn until all 3 marks are aligned (best way to do it).

An alternative that I have seen other Mechanics use, but I do not prefer it personally, is to mark everything right where it is, right before you take the belt off. The problem with this method is that if you lose the marks that you made, you will have to align everything to TDC anyway.

If you have already removed the belt, try turning your camshafts first to align the marks, and then the crankshaft.You will need to exercise some care to not run a piston into a valve.

If you are having trouble finding the marks on the engine and pulleys, some work with a wire brush will make them more visable. Once you locate them, you can make things even easier by using a dab of white paint marker or even some typewriter correction fluid to make them stand out.

How do i remove a distributor in a 1996 gmc sonoma


Question 4.3 Litre V6 or 2.2 Litre inline 4 cyl.

Procedure as follows: in either case remove # 1 cyl spark plug and rotate engine until # 1 piston is at top dead center , with a suitable marking pen make a reference mark on crankshaft harmonic balancer and timing mark indicator on engine timing cover. Make a notation on the distributor cap of the number one spark plug wire and also note the remaining wires firing order sequence on cap in order of rotation. Remove cap and note and mark rotor location , make a reference point on distributor body as well as engine block . Remove cap and wires , loosen distributor lock down bolt , disconnect distributor wire harness and label harness for reference to reconnect upon re-installation. Twist as you pull up on distributor , distributor should come out freely with minimal effort but occasionally they can be a little tough and need to be helped out with minimal extra persuasion...

If you find that upon re-install you get a trouble code P1345 don't threat just start over the process of placing # 1 cyl at TDC and then reference the marks you made during dismantle, There is a + - 3 degrees tolerance that the computer can adapt... But you will have to erase any trouble codes... You should not have to remove the hood, maybe just the air box and or filter housing for easier access.... Unless you are removing entire engine then yes remove hood by all means, mark hood hinges and mounting holes before removing for easier alignment during install of hood... Hope this helps...

How do i find the timing mark on the cam pully


It is a small arrow head (triangle) pointing outward. It is physically cast into the pully, and usually on the outer edge near the pully teeth. If your having trouble finding it, try cleaning the pully off with a rag.
