This is no easy task.and if this is your first time ,it is advised that you have someone who has knowledge od replacing a water pump with you . It's not as simlpe as it was ,say, twenty five years ago!

First loosen the lug nuts from the front passenger side tire,jack up the car and place on jack stands removethe inner Splash guard ,Remove the Drive belts from the alternaor and Power steering pump.After all this is done Drain the Anti freeze from the Car.NEXT wedge a large screw driver in the Crankshaft pulley to keep the pulley from turning when you take the pulley bolt off ,to remove the pulley. always turn the This clock wise .and make sure you have something wedged to keep the the crankshaft from turning counter clockwise, once the pulley has been removed your going to have toreplace just the bolt that held the pulley in place, so that you could turn the crank shaft by hand to align the timing marks on the Camshaft and Crankshaft after removing the timing belt cover!

After removing timing belt cover and Aligning timing marks you could remove the timing belt tensioner and belt,at this point it would be wise to replace the timing belt with a new one when it comes to putting the timing belt back on! and now you could remove the Water Pump! you could either purchase a new Timing belt tensioner or you could place the old one in a table vise and push the pin back into place and stick an appropriate size drill bit in the hole to keep it in place when you bolt the tensioner back into place! PUT EVERYTHING BACK IN the way you took everything off!,and be very careful not to turn the Crank or Cam Shaft Counter Clockwise if you need additional help check out the Haynes Manual for the Plymouth /dodge ,Breeze/ Stratus it could explain the procedure alot clearer ,but has a tendency to jump from chapter to chapter to take off certain accessories!

Good Luck!

You must remove the timing belt to get to water pump.

You don't. This is one job that should be left to a professional.

It is under the plastic covers on the passenger side of the engine, driven by the timing belt.

You replace the rear wheel bearings for a 1997 plymouth breeze by taking it to a very skilled mechanic and just waiting it out. If you want to do it yourself I can't help you with that.

Remove the left front wheel and inside fender skirt. The rest becomes obvious.

The transmission would have to be removed, which is a really big job

Not without heavy modification. The '97s only had the 2.0 liter SOHC engine (same as most Neon's).

Open the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Start by checking the 1997 Plymouth Breeze for proper fuel pressure. Also check for any loose connections at the crank position sensor or the coil packs. Any of these could cause the stalling problem.

You b=need to take your 1997 Plymouth breeze to the manufactures so that they can identify what is causing it to produce a crunching noise.

does a 1997 1.5l maxda protege have a timing belt or timing chain. When should i change it.

User Avatar

yes, they are the same engine. however the neons changed the electrical connectors in 1997 so if your breeze is 97 or up then try to get a neon motor from 97 or up. if you cant, then you will have to change all the sensors.
