In general, backfiring indicates the cam, crank and ignition are out of time or out of phase. The timing marks on the crank and cam just line up the timing of the cam and crank. The alignment of the spark with them has to be phased at the right time too. Check the manual for how to set the distributor timing after an engine repair

Reset timingbelt on 1999 plymouth breeze sohc 2.0


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

I am looking to locate the water pump on a 99 plymouth breeze


The water pump on both the 2.0 and 2.4 is behind the timing cover on the passenger side. The water pump is driven by the timing belt, and typically this is not a repair for the non-experienced mechanic. If the timing components are not aligned properly when reassembling, internal damage to the engine will occur.

How much should a dealership charge to replace timing belt and water pump on 1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0?


it depends what their door rate is to do the job and they can charge what they can as far as parts are concerned.you don`t say if its a dohc or a sohc(dual or single cam motor).roughly it would take about 3.5-5 hours to change the timing belt and about .4-.7 to change the water pump.call around and compare prices as this doesn`t have to be done at a dealer.

1996 plymouth breeze, leaking water pump. how


this depends on your level of mechanical expertise - it is an internal water pump, meaning you will need to disassemble the timing components to service (this is also a good time to replace the timing belt, as it needs to come off anyways and the belt is relatively inexpensive). if your vehicle has the 2.4 liter engine, there is nothing very difficult about this timing belt. however, i tend to caution people about attempting this if they are inexperienced, as reassembling the timing components incorrectly can cost you and engine. good luck!

My car jump time


#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.

1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0 SOHC I just replaced the timing belt because the old one had not broke but rather had eaten off all the teeth so the timing was off. I set the timing mark on the crank to TDC...


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.
