If you have adequate tension on the alternator belt and it pops off while the engine is running, the pulley is not aligned properly. You can start by Eyeballing the alignment from pulley to pulley. If one sticks out farther than the other something was not reassembled properly or something is not seated properly. You will need to go over your work. Also once you correct the issue with the belt popping off you will need to inspect the belt. If it was being kicked off while the engine was running, there may be some damage to it. Even if there is slight damage replace it, A small nick out of the side of a belt will cause a weak spot that will break down the road.
Good luck

I NEED THE PROBLEM SOLVED ON 2001 DODGE NEON THE ALT BELT WONT STAY ON JUST A CLICK OR TWO AND IT COMES OFF COUPLE MONTHS AGO I REPLACED TIMING BELT HEAD GASKET AND VALVES IN HEAD WAS REPLACE PUT IT...


it sounds like you have a pulley alignment problem with one of the pulleys.did you have any left over washers or spacer not put back.the other problem is the belt tensioner may be worn and need replacing.these are the usual things that cause a belt coming off.if the belt is not on all the pulleys correctly it can throw a belt also.make sure there isn`t something(like a part of the timing cover)sometimes it doesn`t take much to cause this.

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.

How do you fix timing gear


Timing Gear...? when you say gear, it usually is gear/chian configuration. Neon has a timing belt and unless something realy strange happened, you wil never need to repalce/repair a timing gear.

Changing a timing belt is not to terribly hard (well, its all relative to how mechanically inclined you are)

If you want to change the belt, let me know, I can give you instructions (best thing is to get a book thought, they have pictures that are worth a 1000 words!!)

Need to change alternator belt on 2005 dodge neon.


First you need to take off the other belt. Turn the tentioner (2), usually a 3/8 ratchet, and remove the belt.

Second, you need to loosen the alt tension bolt, almost straight down from the (1). Push alternator toword motor and remove belt. Installation is the opposite.

Hope that helps

How to replace a altenator belt on a 1995 plymouth neon


I had to put my 95 on ramps to make it easier to see. You have to loosen top adjustment nut, then in behind alternator is a bolt that goes through a plate that you have to turn clockwise, to tighten. I found it easier to see form under on ramps. You may have to loosen lower pivot bolt slightly too.
