About the only thing that i would look into is the cams being off which will have your valves open and whenn the piston is trying to go all the way up it is stopped by hitting a valve. Not sure if you have looked into this yet and I'm not saying you are dumb but sometimes i even overlook the obvious. i hope you didn't try to force it to turn if this is the case as this will bend the valve and could be stuck open but you said the cams are moving free so i don't think this is the case. Check and make sure your timing marks on the cams are lined up and then try moving the crank. Not sure if that's your problem just trying to help and i hope it does help. Just incase you don't have a picture of the timing marks I gave you a copy incase you need.....good luck....Here's your picture:

Reset timingbelt on 1999 plymouth breeze sohc 2.0


When you break a timing belt, you get a kit with a new
water pump,pulley's,tensioners & belt

Also you get an instruction manual to follow for
the timing of the cams & such

If you only bought a belt, you should also have instructions

Nothing-- then you go to the internet & find a picture & also
can watch You Tube Video

If the belt broke-- what about bent valves,BEFORE,before
you address the belt replacement

Good time to do a cylinder leak down test

I need to know where the timing marks is on a 1997 plymouth breeze 2.0 liter


I strongly recommend you consult a repair manual for the timing belt install procedure. Depending if you have a hydraulic or mechanical tensioner for the belt, the procedure is different. If you register for free at www.autozone.com, listing make, model and year, you could find the procedure under "repair guides".
Here is a shortened guide: Align notch of crank sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing, then back off 3 notches or teeth, (counterclockwise to back off).
Align notch of cam sprocket with mark on the inner belt cover-it is at top of engine-notch on cam will be almost straight up.
Move crankshaft to 1/2 notch before arrow on oil pump housing. Install belt starting at crankshaft, then around water pump, then around camshaft sprocket last.
Move crank to TDC (notch right with arrow) to take up belt slack.
Reinstall tensioner, and tighten fasteners as follows: Mechanical tensioner-250 inch pounds.
Hydraulic tensioner assembly pulley bolt-50 foot pounds. Hydraulic tensioner assembly and pivot bracket bolt-23 foot pounds.
Remove tensioner plunger pins-for either mechanical or hydraulic tensioners. Tension is correct when plunger pin can be removed and replaced easily.
Rotate crankshaft at least two revolutions, and recheck timing marks.
Reinstall timing belt cover, engine mount bracket, engine mount, and crankshaft damper. Tighten crank damper pulley bolt to 105 foot pounds.
Reinstall drive belts and accessories.

I know the info on the tensioner is confusing: why you need to consult a repair manual or register at autozone. You have to compress the plunger on the hydraulic tensioner after removing it and insert a pin (a very small Allen wrench works-5/64 inch Allen wrench). If a mechanical tensioner, you will need an 8 mm Allen wrench to rotate the tensioner counter clockwise (this is before or after removed from engine), the use a 1/8 inch or 3 mm Allen wrench to insert into plunger hole, to hold the tensioner retracted until installed. See what I mean? Post back if unclear...or just find the repair procedure. Sorry, no diagrams available for me. I'm too old and crochety-lol.

How much should a dealership charge to replace timing belt and water pump on 1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0?


it depends what their door rate is to do the job and they can charge what they can as far as parts are concerned.you don`t say if its a dohc or a sohc(dual or single cam motor).roughly it would take about 3.5-5 hours to change the timing belt and about .4-.7 to change the water pump.call around and compare prices as this doesn`t have to be done at a dealer.

I have a 2000 plymouth breeze it will not start found out iot was the timing belt replaced it an it still won't start.


You need to narrow down the issue. Start with spark meaning does it have any. Then move to fuel delivery and pressure. Without those it doesn't matter what you do it wont start. Fuel is easy to verify just pour a bit into the intake and crank the engine. If it starts you know you have a fuel delivery problem. If it doesn't have spark then you have a coil, ignition module, crank sensor, cam sensor, or knock sensor issue.

One thing you need to be very sure of is if the when replacing the timing belt that both timing marks (camshaft and crankshaft) are where they are suppose to be. Remember the crank turns twice for every one cam rotation. So is it 180 degrees out?

Where is the crank sensor located on 1999 plymouth breeze, 2.4 l double overhead cam?


The crankshaft sensor is behind the crankshaft pulley or harmonic balancer. You can access this by pulling off your tire and the inner wheel well. Then use an air impact preferably a 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch impact to loosen the bolt. Next you will need a pulley puller to got it off the sensor is directly behind the pulley make sure you set the sensor to where the old one was set at.

1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0 SOHC I just replaced the timing belt because the old one had not broke but rather had eaten off all the teeth so the timing was off. I set the timing mark on the crank to TDC...


When changing the timing belt you need to place the cam shaft a TDC( clock wise), then rotate the crankshaft to TDC (clockwise), then back off the crankshaft (counter clockwise) THREE TEETH then back (clockwise) 1/2 tooth before TDC place your timing belt arround the crankshaft- water pump- and camshaft finally putting arround the tensioner pulley, holding 25 flbs of torque on the tensioner pulley to get the correct tension then push up on the hydrolic tensioner and tighten and you should have it.... rotate the crankshaft twice, if the camshaft pulley ends back on TDC then you have it correct.
