Belt is reasonably cheap but you may just have to loosen the altrenator bolts and tighten your belt.

My 2000 Plymouth neon with a 2.o liter engine idles rough in gear and sometimes backfires though the throttle body what can be causing these problems?


Timing belt slipped a tooth, stuck valve, plug wires crossed, or a very lean condition.

I suggest not driving it until the timing belt is inspected or replaced

Sound in serpentine belt


one of two things, belt is old and stretched out and slipping over pulleys, or you have a bad bearing in your alternator or other accessory. or one of you accessories (such as a power steer pump) is starting to go out and having a hard time turning causing your belt to slip

1999 neon making a loud screeching noise under hood passenger side


It sounds like you have a belt or pulley problem, or possibly a bad bearing in the alternator, or water pump. I would suggest, having it looked at, by a mechanic right away.

I have a 97' plymouth neon and it wont start, it turns over but wont start.


Sounds like a timing belt has broken. If you are lucky it has not done more damage. Best to hook up a code reader and see if it is reporting missing cam sensor. If it is, the timing belt is broken.

97 Neon Expresso, Schreeching Fan


Both your air con and defogger (I am assuming you mean front windshield defroster setting, and not the back window) engage the air conditioner pump/compressor.

The screeching can be either a bad belt or a bad compressor.

How long has it been since the belt was changed? If it is old, and slipping, it will cause the screech at speed.
If the belt has recently been changed, and is adjusted properly, I would start looking that the air compressor pump.

Running hard


You may need a new serpentine belt tensioner. That's the part that keeps the belts tight. If it's weak, it may be allowing the belt to slip. When you say the car runs "hard" what exactly do you mean? That the RPMs dip down when you turn on the AC? If so, that's normal since the AC compressor loads the engine pretty heavily. If you mean something else by it, please repost and clarify what you're seeing/hearing so we can take it from there.
