Where do i place the camshaft timing mark on a 93 dodge colt with a 1.8 liter single overhead cam and what does the mark look like on the cam gear?
this question is best served in the automotive section
What is the clearance on a 1998 Dodge Neon We have had the timing jump and need to know if there is zero clearance valves or not?
If by "motor", you mean "engine", then yes: as long as it is the same engine: SOHC* automatic transmission with SOHC automatic transmission; DOHC** automatic transmission with DOHC automatic transmission; SOHC manual transmission with SOHC manual transmission. Make sure all the fittings and connections line up. All Neons 1995 to 1999 are 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engines. *Single OverHead Camshaft **Dual OverHead Camshaft
One camshaft, whether a small-block (273-360) or the much rarer big-block (383-440). Both used a camshaft in the block with pushrods (not overhead cam). While a somewhat old-fashioned design, I think it is still used in several performance cars (Corvette). The metal timing chain is, short and very rugged. Unlike rubber belts, it never breaks though it does wear and needs replacing for optimal performance. Some early engines had nylon cam gears that failed.
Why would you have to install new gears? They are actually cogged sprockets. It depends if you have a single overhead cam or dual overhead cam engine. All assecory belts need to be removed and front right engine mount. Remove crankshaft pulley with applicable puller. Remove timing cover. Loosen timing belt tensioner. Align all cam and crank marks install belt and tighten and re assemble. Not a job you want to do under a shade…
The single overhead cam and the dual overhead cam engines are both listed as interference engines. This indicates the possibility of engine damage when the belt breaks. Now, I have seen both engines come in with broken timing belts and leave o/k after the belts are replaced. For the $80.00 - $100.00 (prices may vary in your area) it's worth putting a belt on it and trying it to see if it's o/k.
