The gears have indicators i and e on opp sides. the i is intake e is exhaust. the i should face away from the valve cover on the side the intake cam is on. this is the side of the head the intake manifold is on. the e should face away from the valve cover on the side the exhaust manifold is on. the e gear will be a slight bit lower than the i gear. almost straight across from each other. good luck

I am looking to locate the water pump on a 99 plymouth breeze


The water pump on both the 2.0 and 2.4 is behind the timing cover on the passenger side. The water pump is driven by the timing belt, and typically this is not a repair for the non-experienced mechanic. If the timing components are not aligned properly when reassembling, internal damage to the engine will occur.

I've got a '99 Breeze that the timing belt was replaced when a water pump was done. Unfortunately, when the person did the job they didn't align the timing marks before disassembling. They reassembled...


YOu always need a TDC.
It is very simple if you do it correctly as following:
1 - Timing the ignition at cylinder #1
2- Make sure the piston # 1 is up for compression stage, not exhaust stage. It means if the cylinder #1 is up, then the intake and exhaust vales are not opened.
3- The crankshaft mark and the camshaft mark has to be aligned at the straight point, this is why we call TDC.
4- To have an easy time to turn the camshaft for aligning, it is best to take off all the spark plugs so you don't have to work against the compression built up whenever the pistons move up.
good luck

Car wont start after replacing timing belt


well you need to make sure you did line the timing mark correctly as when you pushed the belt in might have disturbed the alignment on your sprocket or left any of the sensor disconnected

1999 plymouth Breeze 2.4 L wah wah sound from rear end and getting louder. 2 new back tires and 4 wheel alignment still makes wah wah noise and vibrates and wonders at high speeds, feels like the car is...


I would have the rear wheel bearings checked asap and rear brakes as well. Sounds like a very bad wheel bearing but also makes me wonder why the shop that did the tires and alignment for you didnt find this for you. After a alignment the car should be driven. So take it somewhere else and have the wheel bearings checked asap but be very carefull driving.
