On a 4 cylinder remove the following: water pump pully; 3 bolts, use a vise grip to hold the pully. Alternator belt tensione alt. belt. % bolts holding pullies to crank shaft; remove pully assembly. remove upper plastic cover; bolt on rear side of engine holding 2 covers together, a nut on eac side of valve cover; lift cover. Lower cover; one bolt to water pump, pull out cover. There may be more bolts holding the covers; what ever you find remove. on lft side of front of engine is a belt teneioner; it has eccentric action; loosen off-center bolt; hand tighten with largs wrench turn large "nut" till blettightens and you have 5/16" movement on center og belt span in rear of engine; wrench tightnen small off-center bolt while not allowing larger "bolt" to rotate causing your belt to become slack again. Yeah a real sadist designed this motor.

The timing belt on a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim is replaced by removing the engine accessories, removing the timing cover, and taking pressure off the idler pulley. The belt can then be slipped off the sprockets, a new belt put in place, and the tension restored.

On a 1998 Plymouth Breeze : Both the 2.0 and the 2.4 liter four cylinder engines have a timing BELT

The 93 Acclaim has a serpentine belt. The tensioner below the alternator is what keeps the tension. If you have not tension I would replace the belt first and then check the tensioner.

There is no timing belt. Saturn Ion's use a timing chain.

It does not have a Timing Belt. It has a chain, that needs no adjustment.

It depends on the year model of the car and the engine that you have.

First of all is it the 2.5L 4-cyl or the 3.0L 6-cyl? A Haynes manual for any Dodge or Plymouth using your engine actually has plenty of info. I used a manual for a 1989 Dodge Caravan to change the belt on a 1995 Plymouth Acclaim 3.0L. The engines look identical. If you have the 3.0L: Quick connect fuel lines are in the way. Will have to support the engine to remove the motor mounting. Remove the large motor mounting engine bracket. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove upper timing belt covers. Remove various pulleys AFTER setting TDC. Unbolt and move power steering pump and A/C compressor. Absolutely definitely should replace WATER PUMP too because it is driven by the timing belt. After belt off, check timing belt tensioner by spinning it. Pros will replace it with timing belt.

External, but it is hidden by the timing belt cover. It is driven by the timing belt.

The GSR always had VTEC. Do you want to adjust your Timing, or replace the Timing Belt?

User Avatar

It is located behind the timing belt. Timing belt must be removed to access the pump. Replace timing belt.

It is on the nose of the crankshaft. The timing belt has to be removed to access.It is on the nose of the crankshaft. The timing belt has to be removed to access.

It has electronic ignition the timing is adjusted by the cam and crank sensor and regulated by the ecm. In short you can't without messing with the timing belt and since it has an interference engine (the pistons can hit the valves) I would suggest it.

You don't. The timing belt should have a spring loaded tensioner which pulls on the belt to adjust tension.
