SOURCE: my 03 dodge neon has jumped time. What do I need

Most mechanics would pull the spark plugs and check the compression in the cylinders, but usually anyone with a trained ear can tell by the sound of the starter when cranking against the compression of each cylinder. Many of the smaller engines today have valving designed so that when they are out of time, the pistons interfere with them. That means two objects try to take up the same space at the same time and at minimum the valves bend. Worse case scenario would be upper head/camshaft damage and possible piston damage. That's pretty severe. You won't know until you get the valve cover off or maybe deeper. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: 97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down

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.

SOURCE: replaced timing belt, but van will not start?

It is possible that this is a zero clearence engine. Meaning that the valves can hit the pistons if the cam timing is off or the timing belt breaks. I would strongly suspect that you have bent valves. This can easily be diagnosed with a compression test. If valves are bent the repair will require at least a rebuilt cylinder head and gaskets. It is also possible that there could be piston damage as well. The reason it is not starting is it has no compression due to bent valves.

SOURCE: I have changed the timing belt on a 99 Dodge Stratus with a 2.4 liter engine. All timing marks are aligned properly according to Haynes diagram and the engine will still not start. It tries to start

INFO:99 Dodge Stratus-
I've had crank sensor malfunction twice in as few as 4 months. This time I determined that the frayed belt, abused sensor, perhaps it was frayed first time around and missed it I don't know? Maybe this helps the next guy.

SOURCE: witch timing marks do I use for my dohc 91 dodge stealth?

I don't know what you got there, but, the marks are just dots, or little arrows, they have to line up or else. I don't think the cam can go in but one way, all 4 valves opening at once doesn't make sense to me but I'll check it out.

Timing belt keeps jumping time 2005 neon


Did you replace every with the belt? if so, pull the valve cover and check the cam journals. One at a time. If they are scored up, replace the head.

Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

It's difficult to say exactly what the problem is since you had replaced the engine. After the engine was replaced were all systems connected correctly and readjusted for best performance? It's a shame you replaced the engine. You could have repaced the head and the timing belt on the old engine for less $$.

2000 dodge neon cranks but wont start. If i unplug the cam sensor it will run for a second ( with it plugged in there is no spark coming from the coil)


You just proved that the cam belt has skipped time. That is the procendure to check. Remove the covers and line up the marks and you'll see your problem. while you have the belt off put on a new one as it should'nt skip unless it's worn out.

Broke timing belt while running --- has it ruined my 1998 Dodge Neon engine?


I would put your chances at over 85%. It is a zero clearance engine. Meaning that there is no room between the valves (in the head) and the pistons. The chances that the valves came into contact with the head are very high. At very least, you will in all probability have to have the head replaced. If you have an honest mechanic, he will inform you of further damage that may have occurred as soon as the head is removed.

So maybe not the entire engine, but the cylinder head is a near certainty.

Sorry, but there is still some hope.
