I'm changing my timing belt on my 05 Sorento and i can't get the crank on it's mark. Looks like the pistons are hitting the valve. How do i fix this without removing the heads.

Remove the belt, line up all the timing marks again, use some tool to keep the cams in place, and try refitting the belt.

I can't get the cranshaft on it's mark. I can move it 180 degrees and it stop. It's probably hitting a valve and want to know how can i get it to move on it's mark.

You'll need to rotate the cams too, so that everything is lined up, then make sure they're all locked in the proper place before you put the belt back on.

Make sure the plate behind the crank gear didn't get slightly off during the procedure. Mine got out of alignment and caused me hours of headache trying figure out what was wrong.
