I some a few used factory manuals for 1995 Eagle Colt & Summit for about $10.00 + shipping on ebay motors. 2 volume set. They should be able to guide you through the timing belt procedure. You can check your local library as well.

Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid

I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

Replace timing belt

You might be able to find a video on how to replace the belt on Youtube. At Autozone they have the service manuals that will tell you step by step how to do it for about $20. There are timing marks on the cam and crank sprockets that you have to line up with marks on the engine. You do this before you remove the belt because the cam sprocket may move after you remove the belt. Then you release the belt tensioner and replace the belt. It is best to get a whole kit to do this including the water pump, pulleys, and tensioner because if these parts wear out later it may damage the new belt and you have to tear it all back apart. It is just good insurance against having to do more work so you do everything while you are in there.

Water pump

Hey Brian,on your vehicle,it says that the timing belt should be replaced at the same time as water pump,so I would go that route,2 birds with one stone,also it's best to have a pictured step by step guide to do this and you will always have a guide to do repairs,here's a link on buying a repair manual.

03' santa fe 2.7 liter V6 water pump seized,causing the timing belt to strip on the crankshaft timing sprocket. The belt did not break,but striped the teeth off the belt.Yes, the crankshaft did turn...

replace the belt with a new one, when you do the water pump,reset the timing and give it a start,if it works,then you can SMILE,if not, you can use the belt/water pump on the new engine.gotta be the cheapest way forward.......

I need to know how to set the timing belt on my 2002 dodge intereid. I've tried 3 times and nothing.

I dont know how to try to set the belt? it may help to tell what engine you have and what excactly is that you are doing an dwhat is going wrong. Th ebelt is either set or its not, it cant go off unless something is broken. Sometimes these bend valves when a belt breaks. Why did you take it apart, did the belt break? to get good help you need to tell EVERYTHING.

    Broken timingbelt damage, and damaged intake and exhaust valves

    thats why the dealer recommended service intervals need to be followed its in the owners manual sorry for your loss but its a big one . your best bet is replace the whole motor with a used one there are plenty of places to get one just shop around the junk yards you can call them from home they should be able to locate one for you then find a shop that will install it for you with a new timing belt of course . you could also have someone pull yours apart you will need a new head or rebuilt one new timing belt but you could also find a damaged piston then you will have paid for all that labor for nothing but if you are doing it yourself just tear it apart first and see what is damaged and whats not and go from there . hope this helps

    My timing belt has just snapped on my mitsubishi car how would i go about replacing it?

    Hi there. If your timing belt snapped well the car was idled up at road speed there is a good chance it did serious damage to valves or pistons. I cant gurantee it but unfourtiantly there is no good way to tell without pulling the motor apart and checking the valves and pistons, etc. If the car was just idling when it broke, you may be all right but once again no way to be sure without tearing it down and having it checked. If you decide its worth trying to replace the belt you would want to get a shop manual such as haynes or chiltons for the procedure because this is a big job. More than likely the easiest way involves pulling the engine.
