Question about 2007 Dodge Nitro R/T New Cars
I am pretty sure you are asking about the serpentine belt.The timing belt is inside the engine and should not need replacing unless the engine is running REAL bad.If you are talking about the serpentine belt,a rubber belt which the engine drives and it powers the alternator,a/c,power steer,power brakes.There may be a mileage requirement for changing,but it is more about inspecting it and deciding.If there are many small cracks,or a few big cracks,or some fraying around the edges,then it needs replacing.Or if it's stretched a little too.A sign of that would be slow overheat,a/c may seem a little less cold than normal.First you need to make a diagram of how the belt is routed.To change it,you have to pull the tensioner away from the belt side to loosen the belt,then slip the belt out of the grooves and off.The tensioner is round and looks like it isn't connect to anything but a wall or have a purpose but it is spring loaded.When you put the belt back on,start from the engine,pulling up slightly so it doesn't fall off,and work both sides until you're back at the tensioner.Push the tensioner away from the belt wrapped side and slip it over the edge.
Good luck! Greg
