Timing belt marks, 1998 mercury villager

The Marks are on the INSIDE. You can see the Crank Mark once you remove the Cover and Pulley. The CAMSHAFT marks on the reverse side of the pulley. Make sure you do not mess up, this is an Interference Motor and will cost you $3000 if you make a mistake

I put the camshaft without making a mark now is misriding so it turn off one I stop on any lihgt I need to know the position it goes.

You will have to start over-todays vehicles have become very complicated and timing marks aren't always where you "think" they should be..You WILL need a repair manual on this vehicle before you can proceed-a library is a good source for these if you don't, or can't buy them. You definitely NEED to know at what position the marks on the cam and crank need to be at-and where to find the the marks on the block for reference. On late models there is no "timing the engine" after it is reassembled-the computer does that..

I need to know the timing sequence for a 1998 Mercury Mystique 2 liter

ignition timing or valve timing?

ignition timing not setable.

The ignition system consists of an ignition coil, spark plug wires and spark plugs.
The crankshaft position sensor signal is the basis for ignition timing calculations. The alternating voltage signal from the crankshaft position sensor is digitized by the powertrain control module. This digitized signal is then used to position the closing time of the primary circuit of the ignition coil.
Ignition angle is determined by the powertrain control module in response to engine operating conditions. Once ignition angle has been determined, the powertrain control module interrupts the current to the primary circuit of the ignition coil thus triggering the ignition spark which is supplied to the cylinders through the spark plug wires and spark plugs.
The ignition coils are triggered by the powertrain control module in pairs (cylinders 1 and 4 and cylinders 3 and 2) sending one ignition spark to the firing cylinder and one ignition spark to the corresponding cylinder on the exhaust stroke. This make sures that any unburnt fuel residues remaining in the cylinder on the exhaust stroke are re - ignited to provide cleaner exhaust emissions.
