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
why dont i have spark on 2001 galant you might have to change your Crankshaft position sensor. i just had that problem with my galant after timing belt broke.
the timing belt on my 2003 galant broke while i was driving and i had it replaced by the dealer. they said it's possibility for the valves to bend. I had no problems after my timing belt was changed Tony
If the engine runs at all, the timing belt is not "broke."
Maybe the timing belt 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
I HAVE A 2003 GALANT THAT THE TIMING BELT BROKE ON AND REPLACED. iT HAS NOT RUN THE SAME SINCE THEN. I TALKED WITH AN A.S.E. CERTIFIED MECHANIC WITH 25+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND HE SAID THAT THE VALVES WERE SLIGHTLY BENT. MY CAR WOULD START AFTER THE BELT BROKE, BUT IT HASN'T RUN THE SAME SINCE. NOW I HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER TO HAVE THE MOTOR RE-WORK, REPLACED OR BUY A NEW CAR. BUT I LOVE MY CAR AND PRIOR TO THAT INSTANCE, IT RAN BEAUTIFULLY. HOPE THIS HELPS.
the LeSabre has a timing CHAIN. It does not need to be replaced. (unless you broke it :)
When you have the belt put back on correctly it will be back in time.
when it is broke
if i remember correctly the 2001 still has an interference engine.....if your timing belt broke you surely pinged some valves.
It has a timing belt. Mine broke after 140K miles.
