How to change a timing belt with a 2.4ltr motor?

Lift the car on lift and remove right tire . Remove front engine mount on the timing cover. Remove timing cover. Align the top timing mark on camshaft to the mark on back cover. Crankshaft will align automatically. Lose the belt tensioner and remove the belt.
I will suggest to replace the water pump and the seal on the camshaft and crankshaft. Install the belt and turn by hand crankshaft twice. make sure the marks align again. Install the cover, mount,serpentine belt.refill coolant. Bleed the system and run the engine till warm and radiator fan start. Cool and check the coolant level again.
good luck

I need to know how to change a serpentine belt on a 1997 plymouth breeze 2.0. Maybe have a schematic or something?

Hello there,

For your vehicle, the alternator serves as the tensioner in at least the 2.0 engine. Loosen the lower alternator mounting bolt. Then take off the nut on the top left of the alternator. Finally loosen the bolt on the top of the alternator, (it faces you). You can then remove the bolt that runs through the alternator. This will allow you to remove the old belt and replace it.

Best regards...

Serpentine belt on 96 breeze 2.4L

you can get step by step instructions from a chilton manual. i go to the library, and copy the page or pages i need. libraries have every chilton auto manuals. may have to rent a specialty tool for belt tensioner pulley. can be rented at any parts store, money is returned when tool is. usually 20 bucks. put tool on tension pulley, pull to loosen belt tension, with other hand slip belt off of alternator or easiest pulley to get to. before you take belt off take a mental picture of belt route. when installing new belt remember if pulley is smooth it contacts smooth side of belt.

The Serpentine Belt doesnt fit 99 plymouth breeze 2.4L with a/c

I thought the same thing on my 1998 plymouth breeze but it was because I didn't route the belt correctly. Maybe this will help:891861b.jpg

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
