Well it sounds like you ran the belt the wrong way. Water pumps will not work properly so then it will get hot. And as far as electrical is concerned....hmmmmm maybe run the belt correctly then remove the battery cable for about 10 or 15 minutes to see if your computer will reset itself. Does the engine crank and not start or does it do nothing when you turn the key?

I have been advsed that I have a broken timing belt or "jumped timing chain.Besides the belt/chain, what other components do you recommend replacing(Gasket/seal,cam and crank pulleys,tensioners)?


I am assuming you have the 2.2L 4 cylinder engine. The timing chain tensioner on these engines is nororious for failure resulting in jumped timing. Be advised that depending upon the situation, you may have sustained major engine damage. If the timing simply jumped when turning the engine off, you may be safe, but if it occurred at highway speed, there is a high probability that there is valve damage in the engine that will need repair before you can move on to the timing chain and tensioner. As far as "other components", if your know that the head is ok, then you should replace the timing gears, chain, and tensioner. Also purchase a "timing gasket set" which will give you the gaskets ans seals you need to do the job.

Did you check to see what was inside th eold fuel filter? I ask because If your tank has water and or rust or trash of sufficient quanity it may already be clogging the new filter. The only other thing I think of is the automatic choke may be sticking causing the fuel mixture to be to rich.

Actually the car was running fine before I change tensioner. I change the tensioner and guide because the tensioner and timing guild make niose when first 10 minute started. But after change tensioner...


Ohhhhhh, sometimes folks get in a hurry changing belts and disconnect the crank sensor. Its sow by the crankshaft pully. It's a plug that came apart.

My 4.7 2002 dodge 1500 will not start


i purchased a new timing chain set and the cam pickup was bad on the new cam gear and we had a no start problem. i took the valve covers back off put the old gear on the cam and it started. BUT be careful if u do that you have to wedge the timing chains apart before you remove that gear so the hyd adjusters do not over expand. 4.7 dodge engines **** BIg they made them trying to save gas but the parts and repair over-ride any gas saving i got.

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )

Good Luck , I hope this helps.

could be the oil pump. Had the same problem w/ E 30. Installed a pressure gauge and check performance at different speeds. Pressure was consistently low against specs. Change the pump . . problem gone.
