The cam sprockets should have marks on them (dimples) that should align with marks on the rear timing cover. There should also be a similar dimple on the crankshaft timing sprocket. These will align with their respective marks when the engine is at TDC. The alignment marks are in the following locations as you look at the front of the engine: RH cam sprocket at approximately 11:00, LH cam sprocket at approx 1:00, Crankshaft timing sprocket at approx 4:00 or 5:00. IF you can't find the marks on the cover, put the marks on the sprockets in those approximate positions and set the belt by using a belt tooth count between the marks. Cam to cam should be 40 teeth between the cam marks. Between the LH sprocket and the crank mark should be 43 teeth. You can check TDC by removing your number 1 cylinder spark plug and carefully inserting a long screwdriver and watching the rise/fall as you hand crank the crankshaft into position (which is much easier with the plugs out)

If it ran fine before and you did not move the distributor (if it has one), then you must not have gotten the timing marks aligned properly on the crank and cam pulleys. If that is the case, unfortunately you will have to take the timing cover back off and get the belt installed with the pulleys in the correct positions. This link provides information on what the marks look like and why this is the only way to fix your problem.

Testimonial: "Thank you!!!!!!!!"
Yes, your Nissan Pathfinder has a heater pump. The heater pump circulates the hot coolant from your engine to your heater core(s). You have two heater cores if you have rear temperature controls. My guess is that your problem was that you had very little heat or no heat at idle. Attached is the page from the service manual on how to replace it.
