Question about Plymouth Acclaim
Hello, One morning, I went to start my car, got nothing, no lights, no power. I took battery & alternator to Kragens to be tested, both failed & were dead. I replaced both, alternator & battery. My car ran good for two days. Then on my way home from the gym, all my dashboard lights, head lights dimmed, then lost power until my car died out. I waited 20 min for tow truck, car started right up, about 10 min later all the lights dimmed again & car died out. This has been the on going process. I reinstalled alternator & battery, everything is clean, on nice & tight. I also had the battery & alternator tested twice, both are good. I also came up with codes 21 & 45. I can't find the codes online to see what they mean. Please Help....... THANX...
On the backside of the alternator there should be a large black/grey wire. check to see if there is battery voltage on that wire. If there is not than you have a blown fusible link that is inbetween that wire and the battery. If there is power there than check for power on the dark green with dark blue wire. There should be power anytime the engine is running. If there is no power than there is a problem with that wire in between the alternator and the ASD relay.
Check those two out and let me know what you find.

go to autozone.com and go to vehicle repair info and enter your make model year and then find your timing chain replacement info and pics
i don't think you have to worry about valve bumping on that motor.

Do me a favor and cycle the key to on, then off, then on, then off, then back to on,& leave it in the on position.(not start) Now watch & record any flashes of the check engine light. You will get a number of flashes, then a pause, then more flashes. for example: 3 flashes, pause, then 3 more, would be code 33. It will always be a 2 digit number. 2 flashes,pause then 5 flashes, is code 25. When you get 5 flashes, pause then 5 more, that's code 55 which means end of message. Get back to us with any codes that flash.

I did it twice and if you are fairly skilled it will take 4-6 hours, if you have the V6.
Here is the steps:
1. Move car to a place that can support a jack and engine stand.
2. Disconnect battery
3. Loosen wheel lugs on passenger side front tire
4. Jack car on passenger side to lift wheel of the ground
5. Put a block under the oil pan to support the engine
6. Block car frame on left side
7. Remove left front tire
8. Remove v-belt
9. Remove idler pulley
10. Remove and support air conditioner compressor
11. Remove PS pump if you have one
12. Remove motor mount on left side and vacuum / gas connections connected to mount ( mark bolts as to locations )
13. Remove metal plate on engine ( mark bolts as before )
Tricky bolts are on the PS pump (Remove them through PS pulley holes)
14. Remove 3 plastic covers over timing belt ( mark bolts as before )
15. Note timing marks on overhead cams and crank.If none, make some.
16. Ease pressure off timing belt tensioner
17. Remove belt and replace with new. Trick here is to make sure you get the belt notches lined up. Head cams will shift when you remove the old belt. Do not tighten the belt tensioner fully or it will not perform as designed, it should be snug but be able to move.
END... replace part is backward order and drive away !!!
