1998 plymouth Breeze

I have a plymouth breeze and had to get the timing belt changed on it well I had it back for a couple of days and it just shut off all of a sudden.I took it to the shop and they said it was running off of 2 cylinders but noone has ever heard of that before. Can you please help me. I just read about the fuel pump I wonder could that be it?

Timing belt has nothing to do with fuel issue. If you're only running on 2 cylinders...you need to find out if spark is missing from those cylinders. Also possible that when the timing belt was replaced, it was not timed properly which can bend a valve, causing rough running.

How to change the serpentine belt on '98 Plymouth Breeze?


All you need is a long prubar (or you can rent a tensioner wrench at the parts store) essentially a open end wrench with a 3 ft handle.
Put the tensioner wrench on the nub of the tensioner and pull back... this will release the tension on the old belt. Remove it from one of the pulleys, and then from the entire system.
Note how it is routed through the pulleys, and put the new one on the same way.
The car should have a sticker on the radiator support telling you the path of the belt.

How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Plymouth Breeze?


look around the power steering pump, (Under or maybe behind) you should see a belt tensioner, loosen it and any other brackets close to that have a sliding point, once loose, the belt should slip right6 off, pay close attichion to the way it comes off, you don't wanna put it back on backwards, or your water pump will run in the wrong direction and cause it to over heat

that is possible I have had cars do that before. although fixing it will not be easy because of the setup. You need to get the front cover off and check the timing marks to see if the cams are in time with the crank if one cam is off you can lose one or more cylinders...
