The little dot on the crankshaft sprocket has to be aiming staight up and you will also need to remove the #1 spark plug to make sure the piston is at top dead can check if it is all the way up by using a long,thin screwdriver and putting it in the spark plug hole.if the piston is not all the way will need to turn the crankshaft 1 whole turn clockwise and stop when the dot on the sprocket is aiming up agin.the piston should now be at top dead center.i hope this information helps.take care and good luck, manny

How to install timing belt

One way to do it, is to make a mark on the tooth wheels the timing belts is running over, and a correspondig mark on somewhere on the engine.
Another way is to turn the tooth wheels around, until the factory made position marks on the tooth wheels correspond with the factory made position marks on the engine (normally upper part).
What is important is that the tooth wheels are in exactly same postion when you put on the new timing belt, as when you removed the old timing belt.
It's also recommended to replace the unit used for tightening the timing belt at the same time.
This is only a short description of the most important things. For a more detailed describtion, one can get a repair manual from Haynes:

Most likely yes. It's not that the cam is out of position (that's controlled by the timing belt, so as long as the belt hasn't slipped, the cam is where it should be). What's more likely is that the cam sensor has gone bad, as you're suggesting, and it's not able to tell the computer the position of the cam, or it's telling the computer that the cam is in a position that the computer knows it can't be.

Replace the cam sensor and you'll be fine.
