i HAVE A 98 AND THE BELT BROKE TWICE AND DID NO DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE. The first time I was on freeway doing 75 and it broke.

How do you know if the timing belt went in a 1998 Plymouth neon?

If the timing belt went as in broke/stopped working, I don't think your engine would start. The timing belt controls the camshafts which actuate the intake and exhaust valves. Neons have an interferance engine if the timing belt broke you possibly have bent valves and the engine will spin over very fast and you will have no compression. That's probably not what you want to hear though. Cross your fingers.
