Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

2 Answers

Broken Belt under the 1998 Plymouth Breeze 2.4L DOHC 4 Cyl. engine.

When I started my car this morning to go to work, the engine made a constant very heavy, extremely rough sound. I immediately shut off the engine and looked under the hood and saw nothing. I looked under the car and found a broken belt that has 4 ribs and has Mopar 4PK897 04663182AB 043546A on it. It is approximately 24 inches around. Please advise.

    Hi! Thank you for your answer but I am not a car expert by any stretch of the imagination. I would have no idea where to look for a tensioner or idle pulley, although I would love to be able to fix something like this myself! I am in the medical field and cars are just not within my expertise! I'm very sure that I will just have to wait until after the Memorial Day weekend to get this fixed! I will be asking around about the tensioner and the idle pulley and thank you for your very kind input!!

    Heard loud popping sound while driving. Car cut off and would not restart. Looked under hood and a blue wire was disconnected or broken from engine. Looked at manual and it may be a map sensor.

Sounds like you have a broken belt that drives the alternator, water pump and maybe the power steering depending on engine type and size. Have the belt replaced before driving car as if you overheat the engine you could end up with major engine damage.The belt on the 2.4 litre engine is manually adjusted with a bolt on the alternator housing. To install this belt yourself maybe difficult if you do not know the routing of the belt around the number of pulleys involved. get help.

This could be many issues, a broken timing belt, fuel delivery, ignition or computer/sensor failure. This should be diagnosed by a qualified technician if you do not know how to check these systems. Does it sound normal when it cranks, or does it sound uneven or very fast? Can you smell fuel. More details could help narrow it down.

Yes, I had this on my 97 Stratus....could be a couple of things....one, the there may be damage to the wire connector harness going to that sensor. That was the problem with mine. I replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, mas sensor..etc...it ended up being a burnt spot on the wire harness. They said this is a common problem for the stratus/breeze/cirrus/intrepid.....the most it could be is a bad ECM....there is a bad pin on it located half way down the side where the big connector is. It is the silver block with the big wire harness going to it in the engine compartment. Try wiggling that around...the harness area.
