I have a 97 Probe 2.0 that I was replacing the timing belt on. Like an idiot I turned the crankshaft when the belt was off. How can I fix my error? I do not remember how far I turned it or if I went a full revolution?

if the belt was off then you only moved the crank cam any thing else should
have stayed in place.realign crank check when belts back in place before cranking
you should be ok asuming you lined it up before you started
btw how did crank get turned by hand or did it get cranked by key??
dont no if engine is/is'nt a free spinner(does'nt/does bend valves)
good luck

I turned it by hand (ratchet) wasn't thinking. I was trying to show friend how it turns the rotor, think I did full revolution to get the rotor back around but really can't remember.

Remember put the crank on TDC set the camshaft at the timing mark both if you have two.
Look at the diagram you were using maybe an oil pump has to be lined up also.After your done rotate by hand and recheck the marks.
