    first and formost, check compression. should be realitvely equal to each other with approx 10% fluctuation per cylinder. if one cylinder is like 220 then you know you have a bent valve being held open. or you could try to remove the spark plugs. see if they come out easily. if 1 spark plug does not come out easily, then you know that the piston hit the valve causing damage internally. those are the 2 best ways to check. if everything checks out ok, remove timing belt, and reline up all timing marks and reinstall belt. try again.

Colt and 1990-91 Vista

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system to a point below the thermostat level.
  3. Remove the air cleaner.
  4. Disconnect the hose at the thermostat water pipe.
  5. Remove the water pipe support bracket nut.

This nut is also an intake manifold nut. It is very difficult to get to. A deep offset 12mm box wrench is used to remove or replace it.
  1. Unbolt and remove the thermostat housing and pipe.
  2. Lift out the thermostat. Discard the gasket.

To install:

Just wondering if you have a breakdown diagram for a 1992 dodge colt 1.5l distributer


I do not have a breakdown diagram for a distributor, but just the firing orders and description of ignition system for the Dodge Colt and related models (based on Chilton manuals) if that's what you're looking for: FIRING ORDERS Fig. 1: 1990 1.8L SOHC Engines Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182009.gif

Fig. 2: 1.6L DOHC Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Distributorless Ignition 84182010.gif

Fig. 3: 2.0L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182011.gif

Fig. 4: 1.5L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182012.gif

Fig. 5: 1993 1.8L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182013.gif

Fig. 6: 2.4L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182014.gif

To avoid confusion, replace spark plug wires one at a time. --- Distributor REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Although the distributor can be removed from the engine no matter which cylinder is about to fire, it is a good idea to have number one cylinder at TDC before distributor removal. 1.5L, 1.8L, 2.4L SOHC Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect and tag the spark plug wires from the distributor cap.
  3. Disconnect the distributor harness connector.

    Fig. 4: Ignition system for the 2.4L engine 84183004.gif

  4. Loosen the distributor retaining bolt and remove the distributor from the engine. To install:
  5. Rotate the engine until No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on its compression stroke. NOTE: Be careful not to turn it to the No. 4 cylinder TDC on its compression stroke by mistake.
  6. Align the distributor housing and gear mating marks.

  7. Install the distributor into the engine, while aligning the fine cut (groove or projection) on the distributor flange with the center of the distributor mounting stud.
  8. Install and tighten the distributor retaining bolt.
  9. Reconnect the distributor harness connector.

Dodge Dynasty 1990, 3.33 liter eng. The belt


Check to see if all your pulley's are aligned properly. It sounds like they may not be. Put the belt back on and look straight down it. If it appears to have a bend, that needs to be fixed. If you have a carpenter's square you can use it to double check you eye. You can use washers as shims on the bolts that hold whatever is out of line. If it sticks out too far you'll have to grind or file it to bring it back in line or remove washers or spacers if there are any. Hope this helps.

Broken alternator belt on a 1990 Dodge Spirit.


Go to this link & scroll down to figure #11. Explanation is above the picture. If it doesn't have 1/2" drive ratchet/bar hole in it to move it, you'll have to use a wrench on the bolt at end of the pulley, unless you see an independant adjuster there.If it's the tensioner style, it will be hard to move, but it will go.
