It was good to check how timing is before you removed old belt.
anyway first before you fited new one rotate the engine by hand look front crankshaft timing mark,
put piston number one should top dead center look cranshaft mark.when you done.
second step is to set up camshaft check timing mark on the camshaft follow the marks fisr cylinder.

I have a 1999 plymouth breeze and replaced water pump and timing belt due to pump locked up and all the teeth gone off belt now. 2.0 SOHC that after setting belt and timing correctly the car wont start...


In general, backfiring indicates the cam, crank and ignition are out of time or out of phase. The timing marks on the crank and cam just line up the timing of the cam and crank. The alignment of the spark with them has to be phased at the right time too. Check the manual for how to set the distributor timing after an engine repair

Timming belt broke from water pump broke while driving car put new water pump on n timming belt but car doesnt start right plus shakes doesnt sound right 2001 neon dodge


Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

Car wont start. rplaces head gasket, spark plus distributor cap.


Its possible that your timing is off since you removed the head and distributor cap, and probably the timing belt. The camshaft, crankshaft and distributor need to be aligned exactly right relative to each other for the timing to be correct. The engine will not start if everythings not aligned right.

Are you sure that you set the timing correctly after you reinstalled the cylinder head?

I have a 2002 Dodge Stratus SE 4 door with an X in the VIN number. It died driving doen the highway cause the timing belt slipped off. Just replaced the timing belt, idler and tensioner. Now the car cranks...


First thing you want to check is if the rotor on the distributor is at the #1 plug wire when the #1 cylinder is at top dead center. This will ensure the timing is set correctly.
