I have pasted the instructions from autozone.com below, but I never recommend this chore for a novice. If the valve timing is not right, it can ruin your engine. If you have not done this before, I recommend you at least have a mechanic look at the belt before you close up the timing cover.


Removal & Installation

1.7L Engine

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Note the radio security code and the radio presets. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Rotate the crankshaft to set the engine at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke for the No. 1 piston. The white mark on the crankshaft pulley should align with the pointers on the timing cover. Once the engine is in this position, it must not be disturbed.
  4. Raise and support the vehicle safely. Remove the front tires. Remove the splash shield. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Remove the power steering pump and position it to the side without disconnecting the hoses. Remove the alternator.
  6. Remove the ignition coil cover. Remove the four ignition coils. Remove the throttle cable clamps and harness holder mounting bolts. Remove the cylinder head cover. Remove the crankshaft pulley.
  7. Properly support the engine using a block of wood under the oil pan. Remove the upper bracket.
  8. Remove the grommet from the upper cover. Disconnect the camshaft position (CMP) top dead center (TDC) sensor connector.
  9. Remove the side engine mount bracket.
  10. Remove the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor from the oil pump, without disconnecting the connector.
  11. Apply slight force to the timing belt at the midpoint between the camshaft pulley and the water pump pulley and check that the auto tensioner moves smoothly, if not replace it.
  12. Move the auto tensioner to remove tension from the timing belt. Remove the timing belt.

  1. Set the crankshaft to TDC. Align the TDC mark on the timing belt drive pulley with the pointer on the oil pump.
  2. Set the camshaft to TDC. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be at the top. Align the TDC marks on the camshaft pulley with the top edge of the cylinder head.
  3. Install the timing belt in a counterclockwise sequence, starting with the drive pulley.
  4. As required, replace the auto tensioner assembly.
  5. Continue the installation in the reverse order of the removal procedure.
  6. Reprogram the ECM/PCM engine idle characteristics. Be sure all electrical items are OFF.
  7. Start the engine. Hold the idle speed at 3000 RPM-s in park or neutral until the radiator fan comes on or the temperature reached 194 degrees.
  8. Let the engine idle for about five minutes with the throttle fully closed.
  9. If the radiator fan comes on during the five minutes, do not count this toward the five minute programming time.
  10. Set the clock.

How do I fit a timing belt


You need a shop manual to give the procedure, the torque values for various fasteners, tips and tricks, and what other parts should be replaced while you are in this far. I notice you don't say what you are working on so kinda hard to give more detail, but for most cars you can buy a timing belt kit that often includes the tensioner, idler pulleys, guides, maybe a water pump, and some instructions. I STRONGLY suggest you do this right to insure many more miles of trouble free use.

Never. The average car should survive it's lifetime without changing the timing belt. However, like anything, it can still break, wear out, or loosen up. No matter the issue, it is usually a major job to replace a timing belt, so give yourself time, and make sure to have the instructions on the exact procedures for changing the timing belt.

Timing belt broke on my dodge caravan 1998


changing the belt itself is not too difficult, but getting to it is. There is a lot of stuff to remove before you get there. Depending upon your skill level and the amount of patience you have, a job such as this is better left to a reputable shop, unless you have lots of time and another vehicle to drive while you are working on it. If you do it yourself, get a decent repair manual... I can't give instructions here... just too much to write!
