For future reference the 1995-1999 neon dohc is an interference engine. This means if the valves come out of time with the crank shaft the pistons can and most of the time bend the valves. have the valves replaced at a reputable machine shop and pressure tested.

Timing belt change on 92 bighorn 4jg2.bolts into both cogs, tdc etc.now it runs rough and heaps of smoke, checked timing belt 2x rotations back to tdc and bolts lined up Possibly pump timing?


fuel pumps ( diesel pumps) that are belt driven are spring loaded for the timing
you cannot remove and replace the belt as the pulley will move 1 tooth put of time
check where the timing mark on the pump pulley is when the crank and camshaft marks are on the spot and readjust to the mark where it should be

I'm working on a 2004 sebring with a 2.4 DOHC I've been told it is an interference motor and a non interferance motor first question is it or isn't it? Secondly I have made all the timing marks line up,...


This`is an interference fit motor, the timing has to be dead on. Its possible that you are out 180 degrees on the crankshaft. The motor has to be on the compression stroke... Line your marks back up, take off the belt, and turn the motor/crankshaft ONE complete revolution (by hand preferably) back to your timing mark on the motor and crankshaft. Line up the two camshaft marks with the arrows pointing UP, and go from there. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Mazda 626 4cyl 2.0 liter DOHC engine replacing the timing belt, what are the correct timing marks position on both cam shafts with #1 piston at TDC


I cant find a picture to show you, but if you rotate the engine until #1 is at TDC there should be a timing mark on the crankshaft gear that lines up with a pointer and the cams should have marks that line up also. Most of the time there is a molded line in the cam gear and it lines up with a molded slot in the plate behind the gear at the 12 O'clock position.

We have replaced timming belt but cant get it to start


Double check and make sure you are set to #1 TDC then verify you have the timing marks aligned correctly. This happens a lot when the timing marks slip and the vehicle is 90 to 100 degrees out of time. If it were 180 degrees out it would start but run very rough. If you replaced the timing belt because it broke while the engine was running do a compression check or connect a small compressor to a line you can screw into the the spark plug holes and see if you have any compression or in 2 or more cylinders have no compression. If this test is true your valves are bent and you will have to have the head rebuilt.

Looking for timing belt marks on vw 2 liter jetta. car does not want to idle must rev up.


There is no manual adjustment for timing, this is done digitally by using a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. Now if timing mark is all you need just to serve your curiosity then there are a couple.

Set engine to TDC for cylinder #1 by turning the crankshaft until timing mark on flywheel or torque converter aligns with marks on the transmission case.
  • Manual Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on the flywheel lines up with notch at inspection hole on manual trans.

  • Automatic Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on torque coverter lines up with the edge of the inspection hole on automatic transmission.

Remove upper toothed belt cover. Once removed, you will see the letters O.T. with an arrow on the upper rear toothed belt guard. Check that mark on camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on toothed belt guard. This brings camshaft to TDC for cyl. #1.

It is unlikely that a belt has skipped a cog, but if that happens your engine will run very rough or not operate at all. You might have other issue in the air metering sensors (MAF) which doesn't take account of temperature. That means whether the engine is cold or holt it will always run rough and definitely activate an MIL.

How to replace a timing belt


First take a digital picture of the belt while it is still installed, use that as a guide to install the new one, there are 2 marks that must be lined up, the crank pulley needs to be at #1 cylinder Top Dead Center (TDC) and the cam pulley arrow aligned with mark on head, make sure you check all the pulleys the belt runs on for loose bearings or roughness when the are spun, replace them as needed, now is a good time to do the water pump also. When you think every thing is right, turn the engine one revolution (by hand) and check the alignment marks again, if you get it wrong you can damage the valves, which is not good to say the least.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
