Question about 1995 Dodge Neon
Hi I am vortash ,,the easiest way is to do a compression test , providing you are sure that you have the belt on correct .. and you have turned the engine over by hand using a socket and ratchet on the main crank nut .. to make sure you can't feel anything coming into contact with the pistons turning it very gentley .. remove a plug screw in the testor and turn the engine over the reading should be if it is the coloured type without numbers in the green of course .. if it is numbered readings between 130 and 160psi is fine and will indicate your valves are ok but any lower than say 110 or below it will most likely mean that there is damage .. some cars are actually designed to be impervious to cambelt snaps and the pistons and the valves dont meet these are called safe heads .. check to see if yours is a safe head in your service manual you may be lucky .. regards Vortash
