You can but don't bite off more than you can chew!....The usual way to go about the job is to remove the front end belts...Alternator, steering pump and AC and then the cover for the timing belt....You'll need a puller to remove the crank shaft pully. Once that has been done set the engine on the timing marks provided for the job, Each of the pullies will have a mark and a corresponing pointer on the block or cylinder head....Locate those before you dismantle further....You should find them easily once the engine is on timing, usually at TDC and then loosen of the tensioner bearing so that it leaves the belt loose....the belt will then be able to be removed. Don't crimp or bend the new one and then make sure it goes on without being to difficult...If its tight maybe you haven't pushed the tensioner bearing far enough?....Make sure the timing marks match on all those of the marked pullies exactly....Half a tooth out is far too much!....Once you have everything matched, gently allow the tensioner to contact the belt and then check the marks again....Loosen the tensioner lock bolt half or three quarters of a turn and if you don't have a tension guage, have a friend turn the engine very slowly in the correct direction and allow the bearing to take up the correct tension while its being turned and then as its turning tighten the tensioner bearing lock bolt....If all marks still match, lock the tensioner and then rotate the engine by hand in the correct direction at least four times....If you come to any place where the rotation is inhibited stop at once. Never force rotation, as especialy with some vehicles you may damage valves and pistons....You'll find that the timing marks must be out of ailignment....Start the whole fitting procedure afresh....The only resistance should be the compression of the engine....Check the timing marks every second rotation of the engine....If all is well and the marks match exactly, Once your satisfied with all marks and the rotation and you've checked that every thing is tightened and locked properly, you can go ahead and re assemble in the reverse order to the one used during stripping....Its more difficult than it looks though and do you want that bigger chunk and are you that hungry?....Regards Johngee

Can i change timing belt on 88 lebaron with no problems

Sure you can change the timing belt with little problems. In most cases you can do this job without removing the motor from the car. You'll need the harmonic Balancer puller and a couple of hydraulic jacks but I've done it several times. I do recommend you get the Haynes repair Manual for your vehicle so you have step by step instructions on how to do the job correctly and how to get the motor to #1 TDC which is very important.

I'm sorry, I don't think you can get a pic for free, this will cost 25 bucks, or look for it on eBay for cheaper, a Haynes repair guide. copy and paste that into your address bar, or click if it's blue.
