No the engine does not need to be removed, but the crank pulley can be a bear to get off.

How do you replace a timing belt on a 1999 mercury mystique with a 2.0 motor

You can register for free at, listing make, model, year, and engine size of as many vehicles as you want. Then look under "repair guides" for vehicle-specific Remove & Replacement procedures.

Usually, you strip down the front of the engine, including the front motor mount (use a jack under the engine oil pan with a block of wood between jack head and the pan, that will keep the engine from falling down). All belts must be removed, and the crank pulley or harmonic balancer also removed so the timing covers can be removed. Before removing the timing belt, you have to set the engine at TDC of the compression stroke on number 1 cylinder-the cylinder nearest front of motor. Then you can see the timing marks for the crank and cam sprocket(s), with the belt cover removed. It is an involved procedure to replace timing belts-you must follow directions exactly. Go to autozone and look at the procedure to see how involved and if you feel capable, or better yet, buy a Haynes repair manual for your Mystique, about 26 bucks.

Removing cylinder head

This is a very involved job which require you to remove the timing belt and the timing chain in the rear of the engine. I would not recommend you do this unless you know what you're doing.

Timing belt removal for 1997 Dodge Avenger

There is some stuff to remove first, like the P.S. reservoir, the front motor mount (put a jack under engine with a piece of wood between), possibly the alternator bracket-not sure. And of course, the serpentine belt and the crankshaft pulley. Then the covers can come off. You'd better get a repair manual-it's pretty involved-even the procedure for cover removal. Or you can register for free at, listing your car there. The site gives a fair number of model-specific repair procedures, including replacing the timing belt.
Good luck.

Timing belt broke onidle what could be the dmage

This engine is a non-interfenece engine, which means that internal engine damge is unlikely.
The tensioner could be damaged inside the timing cover (not likely), so the repair should involve just the timing belt replacement and the tensioner. If the water pump is located under the timing belt cover, replace this at the same time.

Is easy replenment timing belt

replacement of the timing belts in these engines is a very involved job. Most of the front of the engine must be removed and the cover can't be removed without removing the crankshaft pulley.

Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.
