Question about Cars & Trucks
Your going to have to index your cams the cam gears have a notch/paint mark on both the gear and the housing behind them I'm not positive on that motor but on the majority of engines the crankshaft must be placed at top dead center of cyl 1 then match the each cam gear to its corresponding markings and the markings on the new belt pay attention when you reapply the belt tensioner as it tends to rotate the cams slightly when tension is applied if this happens you could cause a piston/pistons to contact the valves destroying the piston, bending the valves, or damaging the cam or crankshaft themselves. Good luck I suggest investing in a high quality repair manual before continuing

Were the timing marks lined up correctly when you changed the belt? check.

If engine has seized, the likely cause is that a crankshaft/rod bearing has failed. Unless you ran vehicle low on oil, this can generally be considered to be a material failure. (unless you ran the rpms up way over "redline") Generally the engine can now be regarded as JUNK and just be replaced. You can remove the cylinder head and inspect it to see if it's re-usable, but you should not try to turn it by hand while installed, or you may bend valves.If you decide to re-use it, you will need to completely clean it to remove debris from failure otherwise any junk in passageways can destroy the block bearings in the new one you bolted it to.

The fix is replacement of motor!! I have the same problem and have already paid $700 in repairs to fix seal just to find out that the seal is being knocked out by loose crank shaft..Car had 60000 miles when I bought it 4 months ago, from a dealership, and now it needs a motor replacement..I stiil owe $5000 on a car that is worth $0..Dodge did not give the 100000 mile warranty they love to advertise on TV for the '06 Stratus..They only gave 36000 warranty because they did not think it would last much longer..Will never buy Chrysler product again!! They do not stand behind what they sell or they would have 100000 mile warranty on all their cars..
