You should be able to do it with commom hand tools. But it would be wise to purchase a repair manual like Haynes or Chiltons specific to your vehicle and read over the procedure before attempting it to see if you want to tackle the job yourself. Also keep in mind that if your vehicle jumped timing there's a possibility that you could have bent valves. The only way to know this is by either removing the head (last choice) or putting the new timing belt on and checking for compression or simply trying to start it. You will also need a floor jack to support the engine because you will have to remove the mount on the side your timing belt is on to replace it. So to do it yourself you will need: 1)a repair manual for reference and it will also show you how to line up your timing marks, 2) good set of hand tools, 3) floor jack and block of wood (to place on the jack to protect the oil pan while you use it to support the engine), 4) patience, especially if you've never done one before it also wouldn't hurt to have someone who has done a few timing belts to at least be handy if you need a second set of eyes or hands. Because if you get the timing wrong the car won't start and there's always the possibility of internal damage. Once you've replaced it and you try to start the car if it doesn't start double check your timing marks, if they're good, then do a compression check of each cylinder if you have low compression then you have no choice but to remove the cylinder head and have any damaged valves replaced. Hope that helps, gl.

Timming belt broke from water pump broke while driving car put new water pump on n timming belt but car doesnt start right plus shakes doesnt sound right 2001 neon dodge


Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

Just had 90,000 km service done - mech replaced - timing belt/belt timing balance/alt belt and drive belt. Car runs like its a deisel and has a vibration and revs go grinding when at 2700 revs. Is there...


It does sound like they didn't get the timing right. If it ran good before then it should not have changed when they did the work. Don't let them give a line like something else broke. Make them fix it.

Drive belt broke, identify wich one and can I repair myself ?


The one that is still on is most likely the AC. The other belt are for the water pump and alternator or power steering pump. (the starter has no belts). Yes get a new belt and put it on like you said. Loosen whole alternator and slide back and forth to put on belt.

SST stands for Special Service Tool. You can usually buy these tools on line of some of them at AutoZone

You will need to use the tool to take tnesion off the belt to replace. I suggest you either take a picture or draw how the belt is routed
