Changed the timing belt on a 99 dodge stratus 2.4 Liter and it won't start. All marks aligned properly according to Haynes manual diagram but it still won't start. It tries to start but is obviously still out of time.

    Well it turned out that I had the timing right all along. The problem was that the engine was flooded. Originally we did have the timing off and this must be when it got flooded. Just to let Emissionwiz know I tried to clarify the question for you earlier but there was a problem with the page and I couldn't. The belt was actually changed because the the water pump was being replaced and it is driven by the timing belt. To gsken I would like to say thanks for the attempt, unfortunately the engine doesn't have a distributor. It uses a crank sensor and a cam sensor instead and the computer orders the coil to fire.



    Thanks for trying to help though, I appreciate it.

If it ran good before, you must not have the belt on properly. its easy to get it wrong.

INFO:99 Dodge Stratus-
I've had crank sensor malfunction twice in as few as 4 months. This time I determined that the frayed belt, abused sensor, perhaps it was frayed first time around and missed it I don't know? Maybe this helps the next guy.

Just replaced timing belt on 99 stratus, now it will not start, cranks but will not start...anything???


recheck to be certain it is aligned properly,. fortunately for you this is a non-interference engine, so you might not have any damage if it is in fact incorrectly aligned..
get a haynes or chiltons repair manual for your car - it will go a lot quicker with the details at your fingertips..
Best regards

Do you have a diagram for 2003 saturn timing belt


The 2.2 liter engine uses colored links on the timing chain to align with the marks on the gears. You just have to rotate the engine to where the copper chain link is up on the upper right side of the intake can gear--aligned to the INT diamond on the gear. Then the silver link should be down at about 5 O-Clock on the crankshaft timing mark. The other silver link should then be aligned to the mark on the exhaust cam sprocket. See picture below.

For the 3.0 liter engine, there are marks on the belt that line up with marks on the gears. The book calls out special tools to hold the cam sprockets in alignment while the belt is put on. There is also a special tool to lock the belt onto the crankshaft sprocket. See pictures below.
Please let me know if you have questions.

Replaced timing belt but now the car wont start


timing these new motors today are difficult, your timing may still be off. You'll need to get a timing gun. Also did you make sure that the motor was Top Dead Center(TDC).
