How do you time a 1996 Plymouth breeze?
You dont, it is automatically set by the computer controlled
ignition. You do need to set valve timing if you have removed the
timing belt. It is a matter of lining up the notch on the crank
pulley and the notch on the cam cog to their marks on the
block/head. You then slide the belt on and release tensioner (or
apply depending how you look at it) turn the crank in the drive
direction a full 2 revolutions and look a the marks again, if they
are one off, repeat. The timing is set off a crankshaft position
sensor that is not adjustable.
Why does a 1996 Plymouth breeze start and run until it gets warm then stalls and wont start again until it cools off?
A 1996 Plymouth Breeze that starts and runs until it warms up, but then stalls might have a problem with a temperature sensor. The sensor is telling the computer that the temperature is too high for the engine to operate safely. Check the Electronic Temperature Sensor or the Manifold Pressure Sensor (MAP).
