Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
The timing belt is a fairly tough job, a lot of people get frustrated and quit before ever finishing, Everything on the front of the engine comes off and gets out of the way, If your engine is facing front, then the radiator too, then the timing covers, you want to make sure you get a belt with marks on it if you can. Then when the old belt comes off, nothing gets moved, clamp the cams so they don't move. Line up the timing marks on the belt, if they don't line up something is wrong, if you can't see them, mark them with a white marker. just a dot. Mark the dots on the cams and the crank, Do the water pump and the belt tensioner while you are in there, put the belt on, make sure it is right before you pull the pin on the tensioner, if it has one, some just have a wheel. If you get a belt with no marks, try to transfer the old belt marks you made before you took it off to the new belt, count the teeth if you have to, it has to be right, or you might as well take a gun to it now. Put everything back together, fill up the radiator, and fire it up. That is about it in a nutshell, keep notes on stuff you are not sure about, take fotos of the engine before you take it apart so it will look like that when you put it back. It is about a 3 hour job. Hope this helps.
