Changing a timing belt is not a very easy task for a novice do it yourselfer. If you've never done it before you may want to have someone who has done it before help you out.

On most engines your going to have to take off a whole slew of parts to get to the timing belt such as timing cover, valve cover, belts, pulleys, alternator, a/c compressor, etc.

On a Honda Civic four cylinder engine it takes me about four hours to do in my own garage with simple tools. And I've done a few quite a few timing belts on different cars now.

I hope this gets you started in the right directions, and please let me know if I can assist you any further,

the computer may need to be reflashed. if it is running then it is not a bad sensor. either of those being bad would cause it not to run.

SOURCE: My 2003 Dodge Neon will idle low on and off and

hi 8,
A car idling problem can cause intermittent stalling and make it difficult for your engine to operate properly. A low idle may cause the IAC valve, or idle air control valve, to overcompensate for an improperly adjusted throttle. Of course, your IAC valve might be the problem itself. Before you can know what you need to fix, you should troubleshoot the problem. Fixing your idle problem can normally be done within an hour. 1. Open the hood of your car and locate the idle air control valve on the backside of the engine on the throttle body assembly.
2. Unplug the electrical connector running to the valve.
3. Unscrew the screws that hold the idle air control valve to the throttle body assembly and pull the valve off the throttle body.
4. Turn the valve over and look at the sensor wires. If there is any dirt or debris in the sensor, then spray the sensor wires liberally with electronic parts cleaner.
5. Set the dial on your voltmeter to "OHMs".
6. Touch the red lead of your voltmeter to one of the terminals on the end of the sensor and the black lead to the other terminal on the other end of the sensor.
7. Check the reading on the voltmeter. The reading should be "0" but a variance of ".05" is acceptable. The numbers represent the continuity in the sensor. The lower the number, the better.
8. Reinstall the valve.
9. Start the engine.
10.Turn the nut on the throttle cable at the throttle body clockwise to tighten the cable and increase the idle to 800 RPM. If the idle fluctuates, you may need to replace the IAC valve. However, your idle should hold steady if the valve's continuity in step 7 was within specifications.
hope helpful,

I have a 2003 Dodge Neon SXT. We just had the oil changed and now it makes an intermittent chirping noise when underway. It did this once before after an oil change, but the noise eventually went away. ...

Odds are it could be your engine belts slipping. If it is only intermittent then it is really nothing to worry about, but it is slightly annoying. Make sure your belts have enough tension, if not tighten them. If so, you may pick up a can of belt dressing at an auto parts store an follow the directions on it. Basically you spray it on the belt to quiet the chirp.

I have a 2003 dodge neon with manual transmission and would like to know how often the timing belt should be changed

Factory recommends every 90,000, but some mechanics recommends 60,000 to 80,000 because if it breaks it can ruin the motor. My mechanic quoted me $500 to replace the belt and gears. He said the gears will usually last 2 belts, but they don't add that much to the total and are cheap insurance.
