Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

The oil pump is in the front cover and runs off the crankshaft. Here is how the marks go.

i need the marks on the oil pump also

to time it

Expert:  Jerry replied 5 years ago.
The oil pump doesn't have any "timing" marks per say, there are some dots on the inner and outer gears that don't mean anything but I normally put them to each other. The oil pump is run off the crank. I have all of the information to rebuild the oil pump in a PDF file.


I have the instructions in a PDF format that you can download HERE then you just click where it says “Click here to start download” Thanks

so what u are saying it doesent matter on the oil pump marks? just put the lower sprocket and go.

 

Expert:  Jerry replied 5 years ago.
The oil pump is run off of the crankshaft. When you put the timing belt on, the mark on the lower pulley has to be lined up like this.

When you say "oil pump" timing, there is no such thing actually.
