it's located behind the timing belt on DOHC engines, and more than likely the same on SOHC engines.if you're a novice, DO NOT ATTEMPT. there will not be much room to work in. REMEMBER TO DRAIN THE COOLING SYSTEM FIRST!! This process can take a long time so plan to do it when you have at least 6 hours or more1 support the engine2 remove motor mount at timing belt cover3 remove cover4 you will need to remove the timing belt and tensioner(you will need to compress the tensioner with a vice before reinstall) there is a small hole in the side of the tensioner so that you may place an Allen wrench through it to hold the tensioner in a compressed position. Also, this would be a good time to install a new timing belt.5 remove and replace your water pump.6 reinstall the tensioner, then belt7 finish the reinstallation process

that was the down and dirty version, if you need better instructions, i suggest buying a Haynes Manual.

The most simple explaination is that there is no real difference. Plymouth was the original company that both Dodge and Chrysler grew out of offically in 2001. The 2001 Plymouth Neon was the last car the Plymouth produced so really there is not many differences at all between a 2001 Plymouth Neon and a 2002 Dodge Neon.

Yes! The Neon is actually manufactured by Chrysler and is known in most countries as the Chrysler Neon. Chrysler owns both Dodge and Plymouth as well and so the car is often called the Dodge Neon or Plymouth Neon in North America.
