need to know which engine you have to give you better directions but usually on american cars there will be a mark on the crank & one on the cam that point towards eachother when the timing is correct.
on the 5.2 there are two timing marks, the one on the crank should directly up & the one on the cam should point directly down. they will make a vertical straight line through both shafts.
it is a 5.2 liter
