Dear invisible148: I don't know which timing marks it is you are looking for, so I will supply you with several.
The timing marks on the crankshaft pulley which the belt ride on, are "NOTCHES" which have been made on to the top edge of the pulley inside shiv. They are in 5 degree increments. The timing cover has a fixed metal tab shaped like a pointer which sits relatively close to the top of the pulley.
The timing marks for the cam gears and the crank gear are small dots which were stamped on the very edge of the cam gears close to where the belt teeth mesh with the gear. The crank gear has a dot stamped on it, close to the edge of one of the teeth where it too meshes with the timing belt.
I hope I have answered your question.

How do you adjust timing belt on a 1988 nissan pathfinder pls?

Check a shop repair, I don't believe your timing belt IS adjustable. Most timming "belts" operate with a mechanical tensioner and either your belt is worn out or something has gone afoul with the tensioner (not uncommon). Anyway you are looking at a time consumming parts. Shops usually get $300 to $500 for this little chore. Hope you have a friend that is mechanically inclined. Good Luck
