Pull a plug wire or coil and check for spark. No spark look to the crank sensor. Check fuel pressure.

TCar stopped dead .....timing belt broke on 2002dodge


Sorry for this bad news but if the timing belt broke or jumped then you will need to pull heads due to bent valves.
When the timing belt breaks it leaves valves open or throws the timing off which causes the pistons to come up and hit and bend valves,
the only way to know how much valve damage and to repair is to remove the cylinder head or heads and see.

03 stratus replaced broke timing belt,crank and cam sensor it cranks has fuel and spark but no start whats up?


If your sure the timing belt is correctly installed, then check compression. you very well may have bent some valves when the timing belt broke. low or no compression will be a sign that this is the case.

The timing belt is not turning. How difficult is this to fix at home?


if you cranked the engine with the belt not turning/off you have bent the engine's valves, not a home repair now, sorry this is what is called an "INTERFERENCE ENGINE".

My timing belt broke on my 1997 Dodge Stratus, 2.4. Is it a for sure thing that the valves are bent? How do I change the belt and check to see if the valves are bent? many thanks, NC


mine broke on my 2000 and i lucked out, the top end was unharmed. the cheapest route is to have someone change the timing belt, fire it up and see if it runs. it will spit and sputter at first while adjusting the timing, but after a few minutes it will clear up. if it runs like ****, your valves are shot. the 2.4 is a non interference motor, so it's the luck of the irish on your side.
