Hi

To be honest unless you are an Auto Technician, I would leave it to the "Pros" as any error in this installation can be very expensive.

Alternatively purchase a workshop manual and read the instructions very carefully. This job is too big to describe in detail in this forum.

Cheers CeeBee

How to change timing belt on 2002 stratus


This engine uses a timing chain not a timing belt, a timing chain never needs to be replaced unless it fails or the engine is being rebuilt

Have a 1997 dodge strautes timing belt broke we changed it but it will not start any solutions?


be careful as that motor is a zero tolerance valve clearance. did you time the oil pump properly? also the internal balancer timed properly, You didnt state if this is a single overhead cam 24 valve maybe repost with motor specs as i just did this same job two days ago and it was pretty easy with no problems as long as you aligned all timing marks properly when tightening the tensioner pulley, and also providing the valves did not get damaged

On a 1997 Dodge Stratus, 106,000 miles, just replaced timing belt and head gasket. Car idles rough but seems to run fine when driving down road.


You've replaced the timing belt as a prevention maintenance or it has failed? In case of failure was made also a valve job? Why changing the head gasket? Are the spark plugs and cables new? the answer will bw within these questions...

Fuel Pump


IF YOU USED STARTING FLUID THEN FUEL IS GETTING TO THE ENGINE, CHECK THE TIMING BELT AND IF THAT IS OK CHECK AT THE SPARKPLUGS TO SEE IF YOU HAVE SPARK.

My timing belt broke on my 1997 Dodge Stratus, 2.4. Is it a for sure thing that the valves are bent? How do I change the belt and check to see if the valves are bent? many thanks, NC


mine broke on my 2000 and i lucked out, the top end was unharmed. the cheapest route is to have someone change the timing belt, fire it up and see if it runs. it will spit and sputter at first while adjusting the timing, but after a few minutes it will clear up. if it runs like ****, your valves are shot. the 2.4 is a non interference motor, so it's the luck of the irish on your side.
