I had this problem on a 97 that i did the head gaskets on. You have to get the camshaft pulleys EXACT before you put the timing belt on or they wont return where they are supposed to. I will attach the instructions on how to get them aligned.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Drain the engine coolant into a sealable container.
Remove the air cleaner assembly.
Remove the upper fan shroud from the radiator.
Remove the four nuts retaining the cooling fan assembly. Remove the cooling fan.
Remove the power steering drive belt.

WARNING
Set the timing sprockets so that the crankshaft and camshaft sprocket timing marks align with the timing marks on the oil pump and front plate. When the timing marks are align, no pistons are at TDC for the compression stroke. Valve damage may result if the sprockets and belt are out of alignment.
Remove the pusher. The rod must always be facing upward.
Mark the timing belt, cam pulley and crankshaft pulley. Remove the timing belt.
To install:
Align the groove on the crankshaft timing pulley with mark on the oil pump.
Align the marks on the camshaft timing pulleys with the dots on the front plate.
Install the timing belt. Align the dotted marks on the timing belt with the mark on the crankshaft pulley.

Install the belt on the water pump pulley.
Install the belt on the idler pulley.
Align the white alignment mark on the timing belt with the alignment mark on the left bank camshaft timing pulley.
Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the center bolt by hand. Turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise to give slack between the crankshaft timing pulley and the right bank camshaft timing pulley.
Install the pusher while pushing the tension pulley to the belt.
Pull the pin out from the pusher.
Remove the clamps from the pulleys. Turn the crankshaft pulley clockwise two turns. Measure the rod protrusion to be sure it is between 0.16–0.24 in. (4–6mm).
Check the stick–out of the pusher plunger against the belt tensioner. Clearance should be 0.16–0.24 in. (4–6mm).
