    I did a dumb thing...

    ...and removed by distributor without marking the alignment of the rotor. This is on a 1990 with the 2.4 FI engine. What do i need to do to make sure the timing wont be off when i re-install the distributor?

    Put the engine at TDC on the #1 Cylinder (Cam and Crank marks set),put the rotor on the Distributor to point at the #1 Position on the cap (remove the cap and paint a line on the base with white out). install and time the motor according to the manual...

    ^^^^^^what mike said^^^^^^

    That's the same engine as mine.

    If you're not sure of TDC, pull the no.1 spark plug, and see if you can see the piston.
