Timming belt broke from water pump broke while driving car put new water pump on n timming belt but car doesnt start right plus shakes doesnt sound right 2001 neon dodge


Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

Need timing marks for 1997 2.3 liter ford ranger


1. Turn the crankshaft until the timing marks on the crankshaft indicate TDC.
2. Make sure that the timing mark on the camshaft drive sprocket is aligned with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

Never turn the crankshaft of any of the overhead cam engines in the opposite direction of normal rotation. Backward rotation of the crankshaft may cause the timing belt to slip and alter the timing.

Timing belt broke. does it have an interference.


No your engine is not an interference engine you should have the chrysler 3.0 liter engine i believe in your van, I changed a timing belt on one of those 2 years ago because the belt broke, after installing the new belt the van runs fine, so to my knowledge that engine if you have it IS NOT interference you should be able to install a new belt and it will be fine....

I need the timing marks for the crankshaft. for a 1988 volvo 740. The timing belt broke while driving, need location of timing marks. thank you


don't panic about the marks too much,find top dead centre on cyl no 1,good chance once you have you will find something that does line up between the block/timing case and the pulley. don't forget once it is fitted to ALWAYS wind the engine by hand atleast 2 times to make sure the pistons don't hit valves before starting.

Timing belt broke ,just replace it but it won`t crank.it sounds like electric priblem


Only the 2.3 liter diesel is an interference engine. The 2.3 Liter gas is not an interference engine. I would guess the belt was not installed correctly. The belt broke so the cam was then out of alignment with the crankshaft. Unless you aligned it correctly it will not start. BTW, the belt must be replaced every 60,000 miles. I asume you have the timing cover off, put it back on and set the crankshaft at the 0 mark on the timing cover, remove the cover and don't touch the crank. near the bottom of the cam gear is a protruding piece of plastic with three raised areas, set the cam timing mark at the first pointer, closest to the passenger side . on the back part of the timing cover is a v shaped pointer set the distributor gear mark at the pointer, remove the distributor cap and verify that the rotor is pointing at #1. Loosen both bolts on the tensioner and using a pry bar carefully pry the tensioner away from the distributor gear, tighten the small bolt on the tensioner. install the new belt starting at the crank, then the distributor gear, then the cam, then over the tensioner pulley. loosen the small bolt and the tensioner will adjust automatically. tighten the tensioner bolts and turn the engine over by hand 2 or 3 times and make sure all marks line up ( the cam mark should now be at the center pointer with the crank at 0). I find it handy to paint a reference mark for the crank inside the timing cover.
