Im wondering when i should change my timing belt and pulley i have a 1998 neon r/t dohc with 94k?


You need to inspect it for "wear" and see how it looks!
I heard between 100-120k and my 98 Breeze has 112k
and showing some wear. Also should change the water
pump too at that time too!

My 98 eclipse is making a screeching noise in the engine


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. If it has been over 100K, it is time for both to be replaced. If it is the drive belts, be sure to use factory belts, and use the proper tension.

My 97 cavalier needs a new water pump. it has a2.4 l dohc 5 spd. do i have to remove the timing chain cover to fix?


yes you must remove the timing chain cover, timing chain, timing chain case, and exhaust manifold, takes about 6 hrs to change, I know I got the same motor and car, good luck and have fun, also you will need to buy a gasket set for the timing chain

My 98 eclipse is making a screeching noise in the engine


1.Most likely alternator belt is not tight enough or need new one.2. A/C-Power steering belt is loose or need new one. 3. Bearing in A/C-Power Steering Tensioner is going bad. 4. Not the water pump unless you are loosing water all the time. Timing belt runs the water pump & you need to tear down the engine. If so ,you would need to replace the timingbelt,tensioners, and maybe the hydraulic tensioner. NOT FOR $300, more like 5-600. Get yourself a Haynes Manual for 95-99 Eclipse at AUTOZONE,Advanced Auto, or Pep Boys and read up on this.
