Question Answered: 

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

Question Answered: 

quick n easiest way is to buy a small u/v die kit at your local auto parts store.you just pour in the dye where the oil goes n run the engine five minets or so then look for the dye with the u/v light n amber glasses.the dye will appear flourecent green where its leaking.others may suggest you spend the rest of your life washing the whole engine down to see the dye but thats not the case.most common place that vehichle leaks oil is the passenger side valve cover,very difficult to see if its leaking by the firewall unless you have an inspection mirror.
