SOURCE: need to set timing marks on a 1986 plymouth reliant

To save some time I'll guess and say it's the SOHC.
1). Make sure the #1 piston is on the compression stroke @ Top Dead Center. You can find the compression stroke by pulling the #1 spark plug and putting your finger over the hole, while a friend bumps the engine. When you feel air come out of the plug hole, your on the compression stroke. Then point the rotor to #1 on the cap, by turning the crankshaft by hand. Then do the timing marks.........
2). The camshaft gear: There should be four large holes and one small hole, the small hole should face perfectly straight up. You can use 2 of the larger holes, one on the left and one on the right from the camshaft attaching bolt, to help line it up correctly. By looking through them, horizontally line them up with the head.
3). The crankshaft gear and the intermediate shaft gear should have a dimple on one of their teeth. Face them to each other.
4). Make sure nothing moves, when installing the belt.
5). Fire it up, before you put everything back together. When it fires, let it run for about 30 seconds to let the belt align itself. Then check all your marks again, to make sure nothing moved.
6). Put it back together.
7). I sincerely hope that this information helped you to get r dun. Best wishes and God Bless.

SOURCE: how do you remove a starter on a 1986 plymouth

its behind the engine the bolts that hold it in are located in the bellhousing.. depending on the style of engine you have there was a split in that year you may have just two or three bolts through the transmission that hold the starter in or just two bolts and one nut on a stud that you get from the starter side.. also ther is a hanger/ support bolt and bracket on the back of it that can be remove most easily from under the car..

SOURCE: 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee...Blowing ASD fuse

My daughters jeep had the same problem. We fixed by finding the wires that run beside the manifold down under the car. The conduit that have the wires in it was worn away because of resting up against the manifold, causing the wires to short the system out. Once I replaced the conduit and taped the wires it has not shorted out again. By the way, the Jeep dealer couldn't find the problem.

Why does my 87 reliant stalls when it gets hot.


Yes, the pick-up coil was a common cause of what you describe.
Drive along and suddenly die, but by the time help arrived it would re-start, and run for a while again, then quit again until it cooled down.

Why does my 87 reliant stall when it gets hot?


Sounds like vapor lock. This means that fuel is being boiled before it reaches the engine. Check for loose insulation, gas line exposed to exhaust pipe, etc. basically your gas has to remain cool before it gets used by the engine.

My 88 plymouth reliant has just stopped working. I have changed the spark plugs, wires, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. i've also changed the fuel filter twice now. i've checked to see if it has spark and...


Check the ignition timing is correct. I see that you have changed the wires so I suggest that you recheck the firing order for the plugs as it is easy to get it wrong when replacing the leads.

89 reliant plymouth car stall out


You're right; It sounds like fuel delivery, but start with the simplest suspects first.
Change the fuel filter(s) first, and if this doesn't get it, go for the fuel pump.

Possible loss of voltage to coil and plugs


i had this or similar sounding issue with my robin trike, after lots of messing about it was found to be a loose alternator not generating enough charge to keep the battery topped up. I imagine the drive round the block used quite a bit of your battery (30 amps approx just to start it) thats when i got my stalling and sluggish responce, not enough power to fireup the plugs 100% run a volt meter on the alternator and the battery
