SOURCE: how do i replace the timing belt on my '94 Plymouth Acclaim?

I did it twice and if you are fairly skilled it will take 4-6 hours, if you have the V6.
Here is the steps:
1. Move car to a place that can support a jack and engine stand.
2. Disconnect battery
3. Loosen wheel lugs on passenger side front tire
4. Jack car on passenger side to lift wheel of the ground
5. Put a block under the oil pan to support the engine
6. Block car frame on left side
7. Remove left front tire
8. Remove v-belt
9. Remove idler pulley
10. Remove and support air conditioner compressor
11. Remove PS pump if you have one
12. Remove motor mount on left side and vacuum / gas connections connected to mount ( mark bolts as to locations )
13. Remove metal plate on engine ( mark bolts as before )
Tricky bolts are on the PS pump (Remove them through PS pulley holes)
14. Remove 3 plastic covers over timing belt ( mark bolts as before )
15. Note timing marks on overhead cams and crank.If none, make some.
16. Ease pressure off timing belt tensioner
17. Remove belt and replace with new. Trick here is to make sure you get the belt notches lined up. Head cams will shift when you remove the old belt. Do not tighten the belt tensioner fully or it will not perform as designed, it should be snug but be able to move.
END... replace part is backward order and drive away !!!

SOURCE: 1993 chrysler acclaim 3.0/6 cyl misses or hits

if it sits there and seems to rev up and down, it is probably your throttle position sensor. Mine acted up very bad, expecially when leaving the highway back into city driving when at a stop sign.

Belts already off need to get slack for new one


The 6 cyl engine uses an adjustable pulley to keep the belt tight.
The 8 cyl engine uses a tensioner that is spring loaded.
You have to loosen the mounting bolts and turn the adjusting bolt to move it on the 6 cyl.
You use a bar or wrench to move the tensioner.

MY BELTS SNAPPED AND BENT PULLEY IS IT TENSIONER OR PULLEY NEEDS REPLACING


Kind of a vague question here. I am assuming you are speaking of the pulley that is attached to the tensioner is bent. Either way I would suggest in replacing the tensioner. They have just he pulley you can take off your tensioner and rebuild it, but it is easier for the cost, and as a point of preventive maintnace to replace the entire tensioner, for the entire tensioner either 4 cyl or 6 is around 96$

I have a 90 Acclaim, 6-cyl. This week the heat just stopped working & my car began running hot. Put a new thermostat in. While i did that i realized the coolant was low as well. Filled the coolant up....


Your problem is leaking head gaskets or a faulty water pump. Check your exhaust tail pipe for black pungent prestone odor. This is an indication of head gasket trouble. Have your cooling system pressure tested. Good luck!
