Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

Open Question

2002 Stratus 2.4 DOHC Timing belt riding too close to rear cover?

Im replacing the timing belt on my girls car. I replaced the water pump the tensioner and idler pulley while I was at it. But my question is...
http://www.almostreal.com/belt.html
Can anyone tell me if this is the correct position of the belt on the cam sprockets. It seems to be riding too close to the rear timing belt cover? I'm afraid that it might prematurely wear.
If its not, how do I adjust so that it rides on the center of the cams. Do I loosen the bolt on the tensioner? Or do I loosen the bolt on the idler pulley. How do I make that adjustment??? Do I need to remove the belt to do that?

Also What is the recommended torque on the tensioner bolt and should I be using LocTight for that bolt?
Thanks Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Toyota pickup antifreeze leak around timing belt cover


You won't really know until you can see the bottom of the pump. Most pumps have a "weep" hole where coolant will leak from if the seal goes bad. It can leak and still function without symptoms until the bearing goes.

Replace water pump on 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4L DOHC


First, I'd recommend you buy a manual, because the water pump is internally mounted, driven by the timing belt. You will also need a puller to remove the crankshaft pulley. You can usually rent/borrow this from the same place you bought the manual. The manual will also show you how to properly install the timing belt and compress the tensioner.
You will need to drain the cooling system, raise the car (safely), remove the right tire, right inner fender, right engine mount (aka front mount), accessory drive belts, timing belt cover, timing belt and tensioner (which needs to be recompressed correctly), and now you are at the water pump. Since the timing belt has to be removed, you should also replace it.

Replaced timing belt but now the car wont start


timing these new motors today are difficult, your timing may still be off. You'll need to get a timing gun. Also did you make sure that the motor was Top Dead Center(TDC).
