Question about 2000 Dodge Stratus
The pump should have been replaced when the belt was. Most shops will not replace just the pump without changing the belt. If you are doing it yourself it's fine. To keep everything lined up use a grease pencil and draw lines on the belt aand pulleys in two places on each pulley. This should make it pretty much impossible to get it wrong.

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.

80 000miles(120 000km) is recomended by the dealer but it's safer at 40 000miles(60 000km) its safer for town driving and cold conditions considering the diffirence between a cambelt change and a replacemnet engine and downtime.
