if its a gas engine then all the 2.0 liter egines are non interference engines,only the 2.0 l diesel is interference.you really should use a precision ground plate that taps into the end of the off centered slots in the end of the cam for cam timing then set #1 to tdc and istall the belt.if youve allready done that then there could be a host off other problems.check for any vacuum leaks then maybe proceed with a leak down test for each cylinder.good luck
