Question about 1991 Dodge Spirit
I have a 1991 dodge spirt with the 3 liter V6. I replaced the timming belt but as i try to start it i get a thump sound as it turns over. I wondering if i have to reset the cam shafts also or do they reset after the belt is broken.
You do need to get the cams lined up and the crankshaft at top dead center. Though, if the belt broke, you may have bent some valves because this is an interference fit motor, meaning that if the timing belt breaks, some of the valves are left open far enough to where the pistons come up and hit and bend them, so the valves are stuck open.
