You cannot tighten the belt. It is the Tension arm/pulley's job to do so. If the belt is loose, then it either means the belt needs to be replaced, its the wrong belt, its routed wrong, or the tension pulley/arm is bad.

95'Dodge neon wont strart after timing belt have been replace

Sounds like you still have the timing out. If its out a tooth on the neons it wont start. I have worked on alot of them after people have changed timing belt or water pump....if this is the caes and you have to time it again. What happens in most cases is when cams and crank are in there proper position when tightening the belt eiter one of the cams or the crank slip.....if this is the case contact me and i will give you a few pointers yhat may make it easyer....hope this helps and if so Please rate this post and good luck.

What should I do to stop my belt from squealing on my Dodge Neon? I don't want to put alot of money into it because it's used to deliver papers and it has 150k on it!

If you can't tighten it, get a can of belt dressing from most parts stores, and spray some on it when the engine is running. You have to try and get some on the under side of the belt, so find a pulley that you can see the "V" part of, and spray some in there. However, the biggest cause of a belt squealing is the fact that it is loose, and tightening it would be your best bet... you may even need a new belt if it is stretched beyond tightening.

97 dodge neon timing belt broke while going down the road need to know how to get car back in time bought a new timing belt new tensioner and still cannont get car to start junk yard says my car does not...

I do not have good news for you.
According to the Gates Timing Belt guide 2002 Edition, both engines offered in the Dodge Neon are interference engines.
This means that your engine has likely sustained sgnificant valve, cylinder head or even piston damage. Have you tested the compression?
It is probably least expensive to buy a used engine, change its timing belt and replace your engine with that one.

How to replace a altenator belt on a 1995 plymouth neon

I had to put my 95 on ramps to make it easier to see. You have to loosen top adjustment nut, then in behind alternator is a bolt that goes through a plate that you have to turn clockwise, to tighten. I found it easier to see form under on ramps. You may have to loosen lower pivot bolt slightly too.
