If the timing belt broke you probably got some bent valves. but as for puting the timing belt back on, there are marks on the outer edge of the cam and a indention on the valve cover behind it. line those up and on the crank gear blade there is a small v. line that up with the triangle on the engine- around the 10 o'clock position. then you will have to commpress the tensioner and use a small Allen wrench to hold it compressed. then install the timing belt and put the tensioner back and pull the pin. spin it over by hand and make sure the marks line back up

If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."

depends on if the timing belt broke or not.... if the car was running and it broke there is a good chance you will need to do heads valves etc. on the dodge neons there is a zero tollerance clearance. About 1500.00 to 2000.00 if it broke while running About 150.00 to 200.00 if you replace it before it breaks
