The 2.5 liter V6 engine in a 2000 Dodge stratus has a timing BELT
Timing Belt. Mine just went out. You might have to replace the tensioners too. :(
On the 2.4L the pump is driven by the timing belt. On the 2.7L it is driven by the timing chain. ON either engine the entire front if the engine has to be taken apart to replace the waterpump.
The 3.3L engine has a timing chain....not a timing belt.... The 3.0L engine has a timing belt......
This engine is chain driven and has no timing belt.
No, this engine has a timing belt.
If it had a timing belt, you would replace it at 90,000 miles. But this engine has a timing chain and does not have a belt.
On the passenger side of engine, take off timimg belt covers, in the center of area, runs off timing belt
No you don't have to pull the engine in order to replace the timing belt but let me suggest you buy the parts and take it to a good mechanic and let them do it. Changing the timing belt is difficult and it may cost you an extra hundred or so for someone else to change but its worth not having the headache. amen...i did it to my mom's 96 stratus ES (V6)...will never do it again...unless i get paid at least $500!!!
Far pass side of the engine.
It is a timing chain, and no, you can replace it in the car.
