Change timing belt on 1997 doge neon could i get a diagram or step by step instructions. thankyou

Changing a timing belt on a Dodge Neon is no walk in the park for a novice. Severe engine damage can result if it is not done correctly. There is also some equipment that must be used like an hydraulic floor jack and an engine support fixture to support the engine when the front motor mount is removed to gain access to the belt. Failure to use the proper support equipment can result in broken motor or transmission mounts and possibly other parts being damaged.
If you really want to try this as a DIY project and you need step-by-step instructions, I would recommend purchasing a HAYNES or CHILTON manual for your vehicle from your local parts supply store or subscribe to the repair information available on-line at AllData.

What are the steps to change a water pump on a 2001 dodge neon?

disconnect cables from battery, drain radiator, Remove the Timing belt cover, timing belt, timing belt tensioner and if needed the timing belt rear cover, remove the bolts that hold the pump in place using a criss-cross pattern. Install the new pump making sure the o-ring seal is properly installed and replace all the other parts. If you need step by step instructions on how to do all these task I recommend the Haynes Repair Manual on your vehicle Manual 30036.

I need to set the timing on my 97 dodge neon. do i rotate the the crank 1/2 notch counter clockwise or three notches on a 2.0 SOHC

no notches . line up all the marks and put belt on. tighten tensioner. rotate crank 2 times and see if marks line up again. if they dont repeat untill they line up correcty.a half a notch off on one or two marks cannot be adjusted because there are no half notches. as long as one mark lines up if the other two are 1/2 notch off you are good. one notch off though and its installed wrong

I have a 1997 dodge neon need to change the timing belt and was wondering of how hard it is and what I would need?

In all honesty that is a job best left to a repair shop. There is a broad range of specialty tools such as camshaft locks/holders used to keep the camshaft from accidental rotation during belt install to cam belt/chain guide install tools.
