98 dodge stratus turns over but won't start


If you have air, fuel, and spark. It very well could be the timing belt. To check this, you will see a black cover on the passenger side of the engine. Take the top bolts out, so you can pull the cover back. You should see the belt. Have someone turn the ignition over. Check that the belt is turning. If not, It needs replaced.

Smooth wheel on the timing belt rattles butnut in middle is tight


The timing belt is not on the outside of engine. What you are describing might be the belt tensioner. The bolts you speak of in alternator are the mounting bolts. If the "smooth" wheel is vibrating, then replace the wheel. That is the belt tensioner.

I can't get the power steering belt back on because of the tentioner


Does the tensioner have a bolt on it? Put a socket wrench with a long handle on this bolt and try to push the tensioner to one side. This should give you enough room to get the belt in place.

Belt tensioner. Socket size? Or is there some other way to release the tentioner so I can replace my belts.


Forget trying to get at it from the top, go underneath. Take off the plastic shroud inside the passenger side fender. It's held to the frame by three bolts (10mm?) and a couple of quick fasteners. Once it's out of the way you can see and work fairly easily. I did not need to jack. Locate the flat pulley, it's obviously the tensioner. Loosen, but do not remove, the nut in the center of the pulley. Then locate the bolt head on the end/tip of the bracket that the pulley is mounted to. That is the adjuster. Loosening that bolt loosens the belt and vice versa. The power steering belt tensioner is very similar. Enjoy yourself!!
