Question about 1999 Plymouth Breeze
Reset timing belt on a sohc due to broken belt
When you break a timing belt, you get a kit with a new
water pump,pulley's,tensioners & belt
Also you get an instruction manual to follow for
the timing of the cams & such
If you only bought a belt, you should also have instructions
Nothing-- then you go to the internet & find a picture & also
can watch You Tube Video
If the belt broke-- what about bent valves,BEFORE,before
you address the belt replacement
Good time to do a cylinder leak down test

When changing the timing belt you need to place the cam shaft a TDC( clock wise), then rotate the crankshaft to TDC (clockwise), then back off the crankshaft (counter clockwise) THREE TEETH then back (clockwise) 1/2 tooth before TDC place your timing belt arround the crankshaft- water pump- and camshaft finally putting arround the tensioner pulley, holding 25 flbs of torque on the tensioner pulley to get the correct tension then push up on the hydrolic tensioner and tighten and you should have it.... rotate the crankshaft twice, if the camshaft pulley ends back on TDC then you have it correct.

#1 are you sure it jumped time?#2 how do you know this? if in fact it has jumped time you will need to have the timing belt replaced.the average interval for replacement is 60,000-80,000.it is also a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time as it is driven by the timing belt.

All you need is a long prubar (or you can rent a tensioner wrench at the parts store) essentially a open end wrench with a 3 ft handle.
Put the tensioner wrench on the nub of the tensioner and pull back... this will release the tension on the old belt. Remove it from one of the pulleys, and then from the entire system.
Note how it is routed through the pulleys, and put the new one on the same way.
The car should have a sticker on the radiator support telling you the path of the belt.

Yes, the belt tensioner can wear out. I had the same problem with a brand new belt and noticed that the belt tensioner was "moving" alot when the engine was running and the belt was on (of course). I changed the belt tensioner and put the belt back on. Knock on wood, hasn't given me anymore trouble.
