I am not so familiar with the V6 setup. I have one question, did the timing belt break? Skip teeth? Or are you just replacing it?

I've got pics of the marks...but as PA asked, is there more to this story?

IMHO, no marks are needed if replacing a known good belt. Mark the belt to the pulley(s) in several places. Remove belt(s), transfer marks from old belt to new - proper tooth count. Reinstall belt to line up with marks on pulley(s).

Just another way of doing things....yes with the marks you don't need to mark the belt and count teeth (even though I would just to be 200% sure).....without the marks you use tooth count from a few fixed points (again, known good belt on the car )

If you need pic's to the marks, let us know.

Thanks for all the replys guys
I was working on my father in laws car and it was already pulled apart when I got to it.
I found a copy of the factory manual at my local library and that had what I needed.
I do appreciate all of your help
