    0900c15280040a4e.jpgHope this helps.. If you have any questions or did not get diagram... (sometimes happens) feel free to contact me

    1. Install the timing belt tensioner and tighten the retaining bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm), but do not remove the pin at this time.
    2. Check that all timing marks are still aligned.
    3. Use bulldog clips (large paper binder clips) or other suitable tool to secure the timing belt and to prevent it from slacking. Install the timing belt. Starting at the crankshaft, go around the idler pulley, then the front camshaft sprocket, the water pump pulley, the rear camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley.
    4. Be sure the belt is tight between the crankshaft and front camshaft sprocket, between the camshaft sprockets and the water pump. Gently raise the tensioner pulley, so that the belt does not sag, and temporarily tighten the center bolt.
    5. Move the crankshaft 1/4 turn counterclockwise, then turn it clockwise to the position where the timing marks are aligned.
    6. Loosen the center bolt of the tensioner pulley. Using MD998767 tensioner tool, and a torque wrench apply 3.3 ft. lbs. (4.4 Nm) tensional torque to the timing belt and tighten the center bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm). When tightening the bolt, be sure that the tensioner pulley shaft does not rotate with the bolt.
    7. Remove the tensioner plunger pin. Pretension is correct when the pin can be removed and installed easily. If the pin cannot be easily removed and installed it is still satisfactory as long as it is within its standard value.
    8. Check that the tensioner pushrod is within the standard value. When the tensioner is engaged the pushrod should measure 0.149–0.177 in. (3.8–4.5mm).
    9. Rotate the crankshaft two revolutions and check the timing marks. If the timing marks are not properly aligned remove the belt and repeat Steps 17 through 23.
    10. Install the timing belt covers.
    11. Install the engine mounting bracket.
    12. Lower the engine enough to install the engine mount onto bracket and remove the floor jack.
    13. Install the power steering pump bracket and pump.
    14. Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the retaining bolt to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
    15. Install the accessory drive belts.
    16. Properly fill the cooling system.
    17. Connect the negative battery cable.
    18. Check for leaks and proper engine and cooling system operation.

    How to replace timing chain on 2001 dodge intrepid 2.7

    It's a BIG job. It requires removing everything from the top of the engine (intake manifold, throttle body, all plumbing, valve covers) then removing the harmonic damper, most of the accessories, and then the timing cover. That's just to get to the timing chain. You have to remove the chain guides and tensioner, then cam gears and crank gear. If you're going this route, also replace the two chains (intake cam to exhaust cam) on top of the heads, the water pump, and the tensioners. Be very precise in reinstalling the three timing chains so that everything is in time.
    The link shows the details of the chain itself, but be aware that your engine is packed into your Intrepid with limited work space in some areas.

    I just changed water pump and timing slides on my 99 concorde and now i have no spark

    Please check that during the process of replacement you could have snapped a wire or connector.
    It is best to check on the related area with a good lighting as there is a possibility that the power to the ignition unit has snapped.
    Also check if the fuse has blown on the IGN section.

    How do I replace the waterpump 2000 chrysler concorde engine 2.7. Doe the timeing belt need to be readjusted?

    The 2.7 L is a chain driven DOHC engine. No belt. Chain should last the life of the engine.
    The 2.7 also has a "bad reputation" for going bad - but this is in almost all cases due to the oil change intervals. Change oil every 5,000 miles and sludge won't build up. Don't change the oil and about 15,000 to 25,000 miles later, <boom> bye bye engine.
    Not sure where the water pump is. Never had to replace one yet.
