There are no timing marks. Timing is done using special tools to hold the crank at top center and a tool to hold each camshaft in position. the cam sprockets are not pinned to the cams. there are also dummy tensioners installed to take up the slack till the tightening is done. Also there are chains at the back of the motor that can only be timed with the motor out of vehical.

SOURCE: How much would it cost
The timing "set" that includes the chain, both sprockets and the tensenior assembly is about $60.00 at AutoZone. the labor to change it all would depend on where you live and where you take it for the work. this repair is one that can be done at any reputable repair facility and it doesn't have to go to the dealer. When I did this for a customer it took me about 2-3 hours total time.
