To save some time I'll guess and say it's the SOHC.
1). Make sure the #1 piston is on the compression stroke @ Top Dead Center. You can find the compression stroke by pulling the #1 spark plug and putting your finger over the hole, while a friend bumps the engine. When you feel air come out of the plug hole, your on the compression stroke. Then point the rotor to #1 on the cap, by turning the crankshaft by hand. Then do the timing marks.........
2). The camshaft gear: There should be four large holes and one small hole, the small hole should face perfectly straight up. You can use 2 of the larger holes, one on the left and one on the right from the camshaft attaching bolt, to help line it up correctly. By looking through them, horizontally line them up with the head.
3). The crankshaft gear and the intermediate shaft gear should have a dimple on one of their teeth. Face them to each other.
4). Make sure nothing moves, when installing the belt.
5). Fire it up, before you put everything back together. When it fires, let it run for about 30 seconds to let the belt align itself. Then check all your marks again, to make sure nothing moved.
6). Put it back together.
7). I sincerely hope that this information helped you to get r dun. Best wishes and God Bless.

If I remember correctly you will need a pair of side cutters, a half inch wrench and a pair of water pump pliers and a large "C" clamp.

the MAP or Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor is just one of the components that send signals to the on-board computer.fault codes are stored and can be 'read' with a diagnostic tool.or by using a key on, key off sequence described in detail in a repair manual.
