I just recently replaced a timing belt with new and all that comes in kit, water pump seals a pulleys, etc... when I tore into it I found old timing belt to be shredded and the timing was lost and had to be reset... so after replacing everything I reset timing the best I could figure out using diagrams and instruction found on youtube, auto md, and other various sites, after timing was reset I manually turned engine over by hand to check timing, I did this about 10 times just to be sure, it always checked out fine so I reassembled and tried to start but engine only turns and will not fire...any suggestions????

Depending on your vehicle there is a good chance that your engine is an interference engine, or and engine that does not have enough room for the piston to be at the top of the cylinder and the valve to be open at the same time. When this happens the valve gets bent and will no longer close. You need to do a compression check and see if you are low on compression on one or more of your cylinders.

SOURCE: I usually answer questions, but

Pretty sure they are standard right hand threads. All that I've worked on are. One thing to try, is to hold extra tension on the tensioner, while you try to loosen the big hex nut. (I'm assuming you have this setup.) There is a tool that fits in an air hammer that is designed to do this, but that's not much help unless you have air. There are also manual wrenches that you can hit with a hammer that are designed to loosen the fan, and these were in fact the original dealership shop tools, until someone invented the air hammer variety. You may want to try autozone, or oreilly, and see if they rent those. If this doesn't help, please get back to me , and we'll figure something else out!

SOURCE: Dodge stratus 6 cyl 2005 not sure of engine size.

It is common practice to replace the water pump when replacing the water pump also. If the timing belt has recently been replaced than it would not be necessary to replace it again. If the belt is original than it makes perfect sense to replace it when the water pump is replaced as the timing belt will need to be removed in order to replace the water pump. There is no additional labor coast just the additional parts cost of the timing belt.

When it is done you shouldn't have to worry about it for the next 100,000 miles or so.

If you don't replace it when you have the water pump replaced than down the road when the timing belt is due for service you will have to pay for all the labor costs again to replace the water pump.

Replacing water pump & timing belt on 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T. Easy to replace front main seal, too?


oil seal failure is the main killer of rubber timing belts . Oil can come from the crankshaft seal --the cam shaft seal/s and the hydraulic belt adjuster.. So if you have the front off and am replacing the timing belt then it is fools economy not to replace the seals and any idler pulleys at the same time.

How to fix water pump


In the old times, the water pumps could be rebuilt with new bushings and seals. But that was long ago and you would be lucky to find any kits today.

If your vehicle is not leaking at the water pump, the newer vehicles use Electric cooling fans to help the water pump keep the heat down. If there is no leak or rattle in the water pump, your problem may be in the Electric cooling fans.

These fans are Temperature controlled, have fuses, and Relays and everything must work for the fans to spin.

If your water pump leaks, it must be replaced with a different pump. There are CD's on the procedure and some "How to" books at major autoparts stores. Many parts are Aluminum, so do not reef when tightening the bolts. Also check the length of each removed bolt so that the lengths are not mixed. You can destroy an engine block by installing the wrong bolt in the wrong place.

Please rate my info.

Car cranks over, but does not start. has spark and the fuel pump is working. what may be the issue?


this car has no chain! It has a toothed rubber belt for timing belt. It could have broken or the crankshaft toothed pulley (behind the harmonic balancer or main accessory belts pulley) has either broke off teeth or shaved off the timing belt teeth but it still should move under tension. Remove the top black plastic timing belt cover( 2 each 8mm screws or may have Phillips + center). You can see if the belt is on tight or even if it will turn when you try to start. Have someone turn it over while you observe the belt. That is my problem but I haven't gone to the process of taking it all apart yet. Not a fun job and it's expensive! Not only that but since you are replacing the belt one way or the other, there are kits for this engine with new pulleys, belt etc...) Consider replacing water pump if its old or you will be doing the same thing soon to replace the pump! Might as well do it now!

Hello tim42220: y name is Roger and I will help. If the timing belt does not turn when you crank the engine the belt is bad. The belt has a habit of striping the teeth of a the crankshaft gear. This engine shows to be a non-interference engine. That means if the belt breaks the valves should not bend. This is something you should be able to do if you are mechanically inclined. Main thing is to be sure all timing marks are right. I would strongly recommend replacing the water pump at the same time. The water pump is turned by the timing belt. Should the water pump go bad it will also damage the timing belt. They do make a timing belt kit that includes the belt and all new timing belt idler pulleys. You will need to reload the belt tension-er. This is the worst part as it is hard to reset the plunger. Easier to by a new one but they are not cheap. If you look at the new belt you should see two solid stripe markings and one stripe that is a dotted line.I would also replace the camshaft seals as they are the reason for the oil leaking onto the timing belt. When installed correctly the marks align with the timing marks on the engines cam and crankshaft. Enclosed is a picture of the timing marks.Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate your answer. This way I know it helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger6f56668.jpg

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

    CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

Got a 2000 millenia s it knocks sounds like its


sounds like the water pump bearing is worn out and has detroyed the water pump shaft seal.
coolant is leaking thru the seal area ,due to the bearing worn out --hence throwing the water pump pulley out of alignment.
The water pump pulley runs of the timing belt.---hence the knocking --either from the pulley or belt chaffing against the timing cover or even throwing the engine timing a few degrees off.
Need to replace water pump and timeing belt and anything else that may be damaged.
That's why, when ever you do a timing belt always do the water pump too.

I have antifreeze leak coming out of the top pulley area on left passenger side closest to grill is this where my water pump is located and the radiator hose also connects to that same pulley area


You are correct! This is your water pump. Unfortunately it sounds like your water pumps water seal and bearing are going bad.

If you are going to have repairs done also check to see if its time to replace your timing belt. Most cars that have timing belts have scheduled replacement intervals of 90000 to 120000 miles depending on the vehicle.

I am just saying this because the timing belt sits behind the water pump and while the mechanic already has the pump off and all the belts removed its a good time to combine the timing belt job and save on all the additional labor. Plus, when your timing belt breaks....you can have all kinds of serious engine damage take place...not to mention being stranded somewhere.

Good luck and be safe!

I need instructions on replacing the timing belt


1. Remove the Alternator Belt.
2. Remove the Water Pump Pulley
3. Remove the Air Conditioner Belt and Power Steering Belt.
4. Remove the Crankshaft Pulley.
5. Remove the timing belt cover
6. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley.
7. Remove the Timing Belt.
8. (If Replacing) Remove Idler Pulley.
Installation is reverse of removal. Keep a close eye on the timing marks on the cam sprockets to make sure you don't knock anything out of whack.

I would strongly recommend replacing the water pump while you are replacing the timing belt. (The water pump usually comes in the timing belt kit.) Otherwise you are going to have to do this all over again when your water pump goes out. Good Luck.
