Replace the belt at 100k with a new water pump pulley and tensioner. It would not be a bad idea while u r in there to replace the center motor mount. When the mount fails it is a pricey fix not a bad Idea to replace it since you have to remove it to do the belt.

SOURCE: timing belt replacement on a 2001 pt cruisre

Not for the beginner, I will be doing one on monday. 2001 Twin Cam.

I have been in repair for 30 years, I would not let anyone with less than 5 years experience touch it. This motor has the potential to bend valves if out of time between the cams and crank.

Changing the right side mount too. 10 hours according to the book (all data) and thats for someone that knows how.

Hi, if it's ignition timing your looking at, it'not adjustable, it's controlled by the ECU, If however it's the cam belt timing, there is a crnk timing mark on the bottom pulley and the cam shafts have markings on theouter rim of the pulleys,these have to line up facing each other in a straight line using the centre bolts as a datum, all 3 marks should be aligned to be correct

2002 pt cruiser wont start after changing timing belt


This is bad. The first question that i have to ask is did you time the engine before changing the belt? That being asked and assuming that your answer is a yes. Did the belt break or are you changing this out because of maintenance?

Just had the timing belt changed for my 2004 pt cruiser and the engine is making load rattling noise.


Hopefully something is just loose and rattling around. The bad alternative is that the timing belt job was botched. I would not drive the car , get the mechanic to come over and find the problem , or he can tow it back to his shop at his expense.
