I changed the timing belts on my 1997 Mitsubishi Galant ES 2.4 SOHC. when i started it the car belts were screaming so loud. I ask earlier another mechanic what it was and said the power steering pump bearing were gone. I replaced it and reduced the noise but i must have moved some of the timing marks because the engine runs like it is about to blow up. How do I check each timing mark sprocket to know it is in line with crankshaft?Hope i didn't ruin engine.

I replaced power steering pump and the belt noise kept up for a little while making me suspect it wasn't where the noise may have come from to begin with. The engine ran very rough so i reset the timing marks and started it again. this time the engine i thought was going to blow!
I asked this continuing question before i attempt to reset timing marks again. i am not sure how to make sure all marks are in line w/crankshaft

Mike, I followed your detailed instructions to the letter but when i tried to start the car, it just cranked over and sounded kinda different. I feel sick since this is my stepdaughter's first car. Anyway where do i go from here to see what is going on?I'm not getting any spark after checking with number one plug wire.
