If the coolant temperature sensor is sending false low temperature readings to the computer, it could cause the computer to send too much fuel through the injectors causing rough running, spark plug fouling, and poor gas mileage. Replace the sensor, clean or replace the plugs, and see if it runs better.

How to put timimg belt and align back on for a 92 geo tracker


Here are instructions from autozone.com: Please be sure the belt is tight on the right side with the gears aligned before releasing tensioner onto belt.

To install:

  1. If necessary, install the timing belt inside cover.
  2. Slide the timing belt guide on the crankshaft so that the concave side faces the oil pump, then install the sprocket key in the groove in the crankshaft.
  3. Slide the pulley onto the crankshaft, and install the center retaining bolt. Tighten the center bolt to 48-54 ft. lbs. (65-75 Nm) for 1986-88 1.3L engines, to 76-83 ft. lbs. (105-115 Nm) for 1989-95 1.3L engines, or to 58-65 ft. lbs. (80-90 Nm) for 1.6L engines. To hold the crankshaft from turning, you can use Suzuki Tool 09927-56010 (or equivalent), or a large prybar inserted in the transmission housing slot and the flywheel teeth.
  4. Install the timing belt camshaft sprocket, ensuring that the slot in the sprocket engages the camshaft (pulley) pin; this ensures that the sprocket is properly positioned on the end of the camshaft. Secure the camshaft with the metal rod used during removal, then tighten the sprocket bolt to 41-46 ft. lbs. (56-64 Nm).
  5. Assemble the timing belt tensioner plate and the tensioner, making sure that the lug of the tensioner plate engages the tensioner.
28dd824.jpg Fig. 14: Assemble the tensioner (2) and the plate (1) so that the lug (3) engages the hole (4) in the tensioner
  1. Install the timing belt tensioner, tensioner plate and spring on the engine. Tighten the mounting bolt and stud only finger-tight at this time. Ensure that when the tensioner is moved in a counterclockwise direction, the tensioner moves in the same direction. If the tensioner does not move, remove it and the tensioner plate to reassemble them properly.
  2. Loosen all rocker arm valve lash locknuts and adjusting screws. This will permit movement of the camshaft without any rocker arm associated drag, which is essential for proper timing belt tensioning. If the camshaft does not rotate freely (free of rocker arm drag), the belt will not be properly tensioned.
  3. Rotate the camshaft sprocket clockwise until the timing mark on the sprocket and the V mark on the timing belt inside cover are aligned.
  4. Using a 17mm wrench, or socket and breaker bar, on the crankshaft sprocket center bolt, turn the crankshaft clockwise until the punch mark on the sprocket is aligned with the arrow mark on the oil pump.

bb65ba7.jpg Fig. 15: When installing the crankshaft sprocket (pulley), ensure that the concave side of the timing belt guide is facing the engine 276b66c.jpg Fig. 16: Before installing the timing belt, position the camshaft sprocket (1) so that the timing mark on the sprocket (2) is aligned with the notch (3) on the inside timing belt cover (4)

916a305.jpg Fig. 17: ... and ensure that the crankshaft sprocket (1) timing mark (2) is aligned with the mark on the oil pump (3)

a0b3629.jpg Fig. 18: Install the timing belt on the sprockets so that there is no slack in the drive side of the belt (1), then install the tensioning assembly

9b6f230.jpg Fig. 19: To properly tension the timing belt, rotate the crankshaft through two full revolutions
  1. With the camshaft and crankshaft marks properly aligned, push the tensioner up with your finger and install the timing belt on the two sprockets, ensuring that the drive side of the belt is free of all slack. Release your finger from the tensioner. Be sure to install the timing belt so that the directional arrow is pointing in the appropriate direction.

In this position, the No. 4 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke.
  1. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise two full revolutions, then tighten the tensioner stud to 18-21 ft. lbs. (24-30 Nm) for 1986-88 models, or to 80-106 inch lbs. (9-12 Nm) for 1989-95 models. Then, tighten the tensioner bolt to 18-21 ft. lbs. (24-30 Nm).
  2. Ensure that all four timing marks are still aligned as before; if they are not, remove the timing belt, and install and tension it again.
  3. Install the timing belt cover and all related components.

My timing belt broke on my 1996 Ranger. It's a 2.3 5 spd - Replaced the timing belt, aligned the crankshaft at TDC before teardown and also made tick mark to align it without having to replace timing...


Is it possible that when the belt broke you may have damaged the engine (bent valve). Try advancing or retarding the camshaft sprocket by one tooth and see if that makes a difference.

2000 dodge caravan V6 3.0L interference or not??


Timing chain is only available in the 3.3L and 3.8L engines.

Yours has a belt. (if you're SURE its a 3.0L)

Here is the info on changing it...

3.0L Engine
The timing belt can be inspected by removing the upper front outer timing belt cover.
Working on any engine (especially overhead camshaft engines) requires much care be given to valve timing. It is good practice to set the engine up at TDC No. 1 cylinder firing position before beginning work. Verify that all timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets are properly aligned before removing the timing belt and starting camshaft service. This serves as a point of reference for all work that follows. Valve timing is very important and engine damage will result if the work is incorrect.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belts. Remove the engine mount insulator from the engine support bracket.
  3. Remove the engine support bracket. Remove the crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper. Remove the timing belt covers.
  4. Rotate the crankshaft until the sprocket timing marks are aligned. The crankshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the oil pump timing mark. The rear camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the generator bracket timing mark and the front camshaft sprocket timing mark should align with the inner timing belt cover timing mark.
  5. If the belt is to be reused, mark the direction of rotation on the belt for installation reference.
  6. Loosen the timing belt tensioner bolt and remove the timing belt.
  7. If necessary, remove the timing belt tensioner.
  8. Remove the crankshaft sprocket flange shield and crankshaft sprocket.
  9. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and remove the camshaft sprocket bolt and washer. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
  10. To install:
  11. Install the camshaft sprocket on the camshaft with the retaining bolt and washer. Hold the camshaft sprocket using spanner tool MB990775, or equivalent, and tighten the bolt to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  12. Install the crankshaft sprocket.
  13. If removed, install the timing belt tensioner and tensioner spring. Hook the spring upper end to the water pump pin and the lower end to the tensioner bracket with the hook out.
  14. Turn the timing belt tensioner counterclockwise full travel in the adjustment slot and tighten the bolt to temporarily hold it in this position.
  15. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the oil pump timing mark.
  16. Rotate the rear camshaft sprocket until its timing mark is aligned with the timing mark on the generator bracket.
  17. Rotate the front (radiator side) camshaft sprocket until its mark is aligned with the timing mark on the inner timing belt cover.
  18. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft sprocket while keeping the belt tight on the tension side.
  19. Position the timing belt over the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side). Next, position the belt under the water pump pulley, then over the rear camshaft sprocket and finally over the tensioner.
  20. Apply rotating force in the opposite direction to the front camshaft sprocket (radiator side) to create tension on the timing belt tension side. Check that all timing marks are aligned.
  21. Install the crankshaft sprocket flange.
  22. Loosen the tensioner bolt and allow the tensioner spring to tension the belt.
  23. Rotate the crankshaft 2 full turns in a clockwise direction. Turn the crankshaft smoothly and in a clockwise direction only.
  24. Align the timing marks. If all marks are aligned, tighten the tensioner bolt to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). Otherwise repeat the installation procedure.
  25. Install the timing belt covers. Install the engine support bracket. Tighten the support bracket mounting bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  26. Install the engine mount insulator, torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to 112 ft. lbs. (151 Nm).
  27. Install the accessory drive belts and adjust them to the proper tension.
  28. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  29. Run the engine and check for proper operation. Road test the vehicle.
