It's more to it than aligning the marks since the cam pulleys turn about three times or more to one turn of the camshaft on this engine. You need to find someone that is experienced on this vehicle.

I have found the crankshaft marks but I cannot find marks to align the to over head cams on my car, the dohc are run from 1 wheel. I am trying to re-align the timing belt as i think they have gone off.

if it's a dual overhead cam then each head has two cams and two pully's, a single overhead cam engine has one cam and one pulley on each head. if the belt has more than 60,000 miles on it you should replace it. you need to find out if the engine is an interference engine or not to determine the level of damage caused if the belt has jumped or slipped. your overhead cam timing marks are usually on the cam faces and the backing plate behind the cam or sometimes there's two marks on the cam that you align with the surface of the head behind them. the first thing you need is a diagram of the belt routing and mark positions because timing marks are very important especially on an interference engine. starting or cranking an interference engine with the timing marks misaligned can bend all your valves or even punch holes in your pistons! so proper alignment is crucial, good luck.

1995 lexus es 300 serprntine belt diagram

Go to the web site link below (copy and past the web address)!OpenDocument

There are 2 PDF documents to open from that page (above the picture).
The first (Routing guide) gives you the belt routing diagram code for your car (diagram 6-10).
The 1995 lexus ES 300, GS 300 and Sc300 all have the same engine and belt configuration so refer to the 1995 GS300.

The second PDF (Illustration) shows the belt diagram for code 6-10.

Hope this helps.

Need to replace front disk brakes on my 2002 Lexus Es 300. Do I have to remove the brake line to accomplish this? And what kind of brake fluid should I use? Thanks Robert D in L.A.

No you don't have to remove any lines to replace brake pads. There will be a sticker on top of your fluid reservoir that says what DOT number fluid you need. It could also be stamped into it, or printed directly on it, it's different with different car companies. The higher the number the better the fluid. But use whatever it says because you don't want to mix fluid types, that's always a bad idea.
