    Key was turned while belt was off... Was told it was timing but had a guy look at it and fix it and still nothing will start.. All I hear is a pump kick on when I turn the key..

Just changed the water pump on a 2005 dodge neon and now it wont start. What could it be


You're not giving much to go on. Is it a 2.0L or a 2.4L?
You say it won't start. Does it turn over and not fire, or does it just sit there and do nothing when you turn the key?

Both engines require you to remove the timing belt in order to change the water pump. The 2.0L is definitely an interference engine, and I'm not sure about the 2.4L. But if the timing belt was not re-installed properly, it will result in a no-start condition since the valves will not be in sync with the pistons and spark. Best case scenario you correct the issue and are good to go. Worst case scenario is that if the belt is out too far, you bent valves and have to service the head(s).

I changed the water pump and all the belts and now it wont start.


If you changed the timing belt and didn't mark the pulleys, you are done. Take the car to a repair center. It sounds like the timing is off.

your car does not have a timing belt it has a chain. but yes if the pump is driven by timing belt and it starts leaking the coolant gets on belt and it will fail. if your car has the 2.4 engine the water pump runs off of the timing chain and depending on mileage it would be smart to go ahead and replace it since it will be tore down anyway will save on labor

Coolant leaking into engine Compartment


Sounds like a blown coolant hose, or a faulty coolant water pump.

Bottom wheel of water pump wont turn, burning belt


The wheel could be stuck but you need to have the water drained out and a mixture of antifreeze to water added to it. Be sure to keep in mind the heater core also has fluid in it and you could damage that also.
