Q: Cant find the TDC mark or the flywheel.

asked by on

I changed the water pump last month and put the timing belt on and the car ran gine but the engine light cane on. I took it to a place and they said it was off by a little and thats why the engine light was on. I took it off and tried putting it back on. Whoever changed it before me has an arrow carved on bolt that I turn and that arrow is pointing to a line on the cover..which tells me it is on the correct spot. However over on the other side on the flywheel...i do not see the TDC mark. My wife made a video while i turned it and there was NO mark. What to do next?

My car has 158000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
