You can rent the tool for $200. which is like half the cost of the tool, i think i found the rental through e bay. i think you need to install the tool before you remove the belt, it keeps the cam gears from moving.

Timing marks


You need locking pins for both cam shaft pulleys as well as for the crank. The cam pulleys each have a hole in them which line up with a hole in the cylinder head through which an 8mm bolt cam be used to lock them. If you are looking at the cam pulleys from the RH fender side, the LH pulley hole locks at about 5 o'clock and the RH pulley at about 7 o'clock.

The crank locking pin is in an awkward position and a bit difficult to access. the hole is behind the oil filter housing and the pin locks into a hole in the back of the flywheel.

Please note that if your cam belt has snapped this engine will bend valves. If it is a scheduled belt change then it is quite easy to line up the marks and do the belt replacement.

Is there 2 timing marks on each cam gears one is mark on the middle on the tooth and the other one on the side of the tooth 2001 dodge stratus 2.4 4 door?


Click on the following direct Free Link. It has the correct Timing Belt Diagrams, including the one for the 2.4L. Scroll down that Page to the Diagram with the 2.4L Camshaft Timing Marks. As you can see there is a 1/2 notch difference. There are also additional Diagrams that will be very useful to you. I've worked alot on the 2.4L and trying to line these up 'perfectly' can cause problems.
Note: That Link Page contains: the 2.4L SOHC, 2.4L DOHC, 2.7L DOHC, and the 3.0L SOHC Engine Diagrams.

NEED TO TIME CAMSHAFTS PLEASE EXPLAIN. THANKS


Flats of all four cams on the ends opposite gears need to be parallel to top of head where cam cover bolts on. Dark links on transmission side of cam gears should line up with pins at 12:00 positions on cams. Dark links on pulley side of gears should line up with marks on intake gears. Dark link on balancer shaft gear lines up with tooth at 5:00 position. Dark link on crankshaft gear lines up at 4:00 position.

Here is a diagram of the pulley side marks.

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

Timing marks and procedures


If it is the 2.5 EJ25 motor the marks ar on the cover and pulleys. Top pulleys are Single line straight up and double straight down which should line up with bottom pulleys double marks. This should line up the single lines on bottom pulleys with 90 degree mark on outer cover both sides.The center pulley for crank should be straight up with notch in block.
