Timing marks for Toyota hilux 2003,efi on diesel pump

Depending on which engine and which diesel system.If it is a common rail system the pump is used only to provide pressure and the injectors are opened by means of the ECU(computor) at exactly the optimum time, meaning that the pump is not timed. Only mechanical systems are timed and use timing marks. The camshaft however is timed and it is of vital importance that it should be timed correctly. If this timing is not right it will lead to bent valves and more.

if you can remove the timing cover and try to bring the engine using your hand with a tool by turning the crank shaft with the engine off and battery terminal off,to the timing marks. surely the camshaft and crank shaft sensors do have some marks. if it is diesel engine also the fuel pump has mark too. If you aligned the marks and are in a correct place then you problem is something else,If the marks are not aligned then you timing is wrong and try once more to fit it whilst in a correct place.
