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.

I have a 1991 dodge caravan/3 liter v6 engine.I have replaced the alternator and the battery but after about 24 hours its dead again.how do I fix this?


You have a parasitic drain somewhere. We have an almost identical model at work and we have an ignition problem where you can remove the key in accessory position which leaves some of the electronics on and drains the battery. Faulty light switch, interior light left on?

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.

At what mileage should a timming chain be replaced?


Timing chains are never replaced unless the enginme is being rebuilt or it fails, this is not true of timing belts which are rubber drive belts for the cam or cams, they are replaced at about 90,000 miles This car doesn't use a timing belt in the 3.1 Liter V6 used in this car.

Distributur stoped turning


to tell you the truth, it could be a broken timing belt that causes this. if the timing belt breaks, it will not turn the crank or cam, causing the distributor not to turn. check it out! you can do it.
