Question about 1994 Eagle Talon
Did you compress the timing belt tensioner?
There should be a small hole in the upper part of the timing belt tensioner housing and also on the end of the timing belt tensioner plunger, and the plunger must be compressed back into the tensioner housing until you can place a small allen wrench or something similar through the holes in the tensioner housing and the plunger to hold the plunger down and from putting tension on the timing belt until the timing belt has been installed.
Once you are sure that the timing belt is installed properly then you can pull out what you have holding the tensioner plunger and allow the timing belt to be tensioned.
If you are unsure of the procedure to compress the tensioner, or of the condition of the timing belt tensioner, then just replace the tensioner, it will come already compressed with a pin through it holding the plunger, and do not remove the holding pin until the timing belt is properly installed with all of the timing marks in their correct places.
