Here's a link to info to read & shed some light. Basically you want to remove covers & inspect belt & make sure all marks are where they should be, as far as timing goes. If it's all where it should be, then you may have to look into other possibilities. If it's not, I'm pretty sure that's an interference engine, and big damage may have occurred.

95 LeSabre 3.8 serpentine belt removed you can turn crankshaft pulley forward and back about an inch and a half makes loud noise at times car still runs and drives possible broken crankshaft?


you should be able to turn it by hand or with a socket and ratchet broken crank means broken car if you broke crank which is rare you would not have a running engine sounds more like stretched timing chain if it feels sloppy

Car wont start


sounds like the timing belt has gone would not keep trying to start engine if this is the case and it will cost you more to fix. it may have striped a cog on the belt or the adjuster has given up the goat. clicking and clunk is a most common sound of the belt going. if you have to have the belt changed and the engine runs and is ticking then the valves are bent and you will need to have the head changed or the valves replaced, as over time the valve can snap and then the engine is a gonner.

Just replaced timing chain and gears noiw wont stay running


I would guess you have to go back over your work
with regards to the timing chain & cam gear settings
If your at a professional shop, they can look at various data,
to get an idea if timing is an issue since that work was just
done

95'Dodge neon wont strart after timing belt have been replace


Sounds like you still have the timing out. If its out a tooth on the neons it wont start. I have worked on alot of them after people have changed timing belt or water pump....if this is the caes and you have to time it again. What happens in most cases is when cams and crank are in there proper position when tightening the belt eiter one of the cams or the crank slip.....if this is the case contact me and i will give you a few pointers yhat may make it easyer....hope this helps and if so Please rate this post and good luck.

Power windows won't work. they are not rolling up or down.


It can only be one of a few things. First if it is the switch it won't make any sound at all when you press the button. If you can hear a sound, then the motor is running. If it has a 'clunk-clunk-clunk' sound to it then the gear plugs in the window motor need replacing which always happens around 10 years old. If you hear the motor running without the 'clunk-clunk-clunk' then the regulator cable has jumped track and the regulator will need replacing.

Car just died and wont start back up. It turns over but wont start. 95 plymoth neon


There are three things you need for an engine to run. 1. You have to have ignition(spark) 2. you have to have fuel. 3. you have to have a mechanically sound engine.
Ignition failure could be a number of things including the computer.
Fuel could be the pump, or again the computer
Mechanically, you may want to check the timing belt.
There are so many things you need to narrow it down some. lee

97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down the road need to know how to get car back in time bought a new timing belt new tensioner and still cannont get car to start junk yard says my car does not...


I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

Setting the timing on a 1999 plymouth neon


The best way for you to do this is to go to a autostore and buy the repair manual for a 95-99 dodge/plymouth neon. That will help you better, because you have to pull apart the front of the motor (passanger side). Its not as hard as it sounds. 90% chance your engine is a sohc. If needed i can give you the complete directions for doing this but easer for you to see it in the book.
hope this helps
