Guessing you need the marks for the timing belt. Below are some pictures that should help. Just a hint, if you are replacing the timing belt, when puching the "plunger" down for the belt tensioner if you use a 10 mmilimeter hex wrentch it works PERFECT to keep the punger down. Hope this was what you needed and I hope it helps....
My car is a 2001 Lexus ES300 and has 106K miles. I brought it to my mechanic to replace Thermostat, Thermostat Gasket, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Camseals Kit, Crankseal, Air Filter, Fuel Filter, Timing Component and Spark Plugs for a total of $981.24 ($510 of it is labor). He charges at least 1/2 of a dealer so expect to pay more elsewhere. The care drives like a brand new car and I will keep driving it for another 10 years!!!
If you see no leaks and the fluid level is also good in the rad overflow bottle. It could be the water pump. When the car is running do you feel the hoses are hot and pressurized. Do you feel heat with your heater cranked up. The coolant may not be circulating. This would mean you need a new water pump, most likely the impeller is worn/broken inside. It can be fixed by yourself but will require some skill and time.
the coolant needs to be serviced @ 60k according to lexus reccomendation. theres a timing belt that needs to be changed @ 90k miles. I usually just change the coolant with the timing belt because you have to take the water pump off anyway and replace the engine coolant.
