I need to know what timing marks to use on a 1996 kia sportage. there is a mark on the plate @ 12:00 on the I and E side I found the top dead center mark on the crank but each cam pulley has a E, I, and S mark. how do you set the overhead pulleys?

you have to turn the cams to designated notches. left side is intake so the I should be straight up at 12 o'clock. the right side is the exhaust so the E should be straight up at 12 o'clock. try looking for timing mark pictures for the crankshaft
look at the cam sprokets they should have an I and an E stamped on them then by the gear they should have a notch. the back timing cover will have a V symbol. then match them up the cam close to the intake side will have the I mark up and the cam on the exhaust side will have the E up.

I can help with your timing marks.
the bottom pulley on your timing belt has a **** grove on the back part of the pulley on the seal plate behind pulley should be a mark or a triangle align those two marks
for the camshaft pulleys there should be an "l" marking on the left pulley for intake and an "E" marking for the right for exhaust side allingn each marking to the grove just above the pulleys on the seal plate directly behind the pulleys
install timing belt and make sure it isnt loose on tension side which is the right side of belt if reusing old belt make sure you have marked belt on which way belt is turning
loosen tensioner lock bolt turn crankshaft two complete revolutions in direction of rotation
make sure that marks are correctly aligned still if not start back to step one.
if ok turn crankshaft to align "S" mark of right pulley or the exhaust pulley to same mark on seal plate directly behind pulley
My scanner isnt working, so i hope this can help you out some...On the left Camshaft..you will a stamp I and E...iI is for intake and E is for exhaust..The I should be up at 12 o'clock and the E should be at 4..you will also have marks on the timing plate behind the camshafts to help you line it up right...Now on the Right Camshaft you will have the same marks, but this time you want the E at 12 and the I at 7 o'clock..And the crankshaft should have a little notch on it, where you can line that up at 12 o'clock with the notch imprint that is on the plate for you..You may have to clean those areas, and use a light, so you can see them..I hope this helps you out..Goodluck...
