How do you adjust the timing belt on a Plymouth Reliant car?

A timing belt implies you are working on the 2.2 or 2.5 liter engine. The 2.6 liter engine has a timing chain.

If you are working on the timing belt, I would recommend getting a repair manual for your car. If you are attempting to re-tension an old belt, you should consider installing a new belt, but be prepared to unbolt one of the engine mounts. Having said that, there is a tensioner on the firewall side of the engine, which is hidden under a plastic cover. Depending on how many accessories you have, this cover is probably one of the more difficult items to remove in one piece from your engine. Once exposed, have a friend help you loosen and re-tension the belt (approximately 5/16-inch deflection measured half-way between the camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley).

2. Rotate the tuning knob clockwise to advance the hour setting, or counterclockwise to decrease it.

3. depress the volume knob again to display minutes and make the setting in the same way.

Timing marks on an 1988 Plymouth reliant 2.2?

When the engineers designed the 2.2 they forgot to put a timing mark on the front of the engine, so they designed a window in the top of the auto trans bell housing

so one could look at the spinning torque converter, and see the timing mark.

Naturally a timing light would be helpful, but you can align it if you turn the crank

with a socket wrench on center bolt on the pulley which drives the water pump/alternator belt.

They designed the flex plate (connects engine crankshaft to torque converter)

so that 4 bolts couple it to the T converter. The 4 bolts are not 90degrees apart from one another assuring that if one swaps the motor, there is only one way to

get the bolt up pattern right. Ben there & dunit!

How do you install a 1987 Plymouth reliant coil?

Open up the hood. The coil is located on the right fender positioned at an angle off approx. 45 degrees. Disconnect the negative battery cable.Pull off the coil wire. Remove the 3 wires from the 2 side posts on the coil. Make that you remember which ones go on the positive and which one goes on the negative terminal on the coil. I find that it is best to then to remove the coil with the bracket still attached from the car. Undo the clamp from the coil after you have noted which side of the coil was on the left side when it was in the car. Remove the coil from the bracket, get the new coil into the bracket. Position the pos and neg. terminals in the bracket as per the old coil and tighten the clamp down snugly,... not over tightened. Replace the 3 wires that you took off and clamp them down with the nuts on the new terminal. Replace the coil wire and reconnect the battery cable. When you are replacing all of the wires check them for corrosion and bad or nearly broken connectors.
