  2. If removed, reinstall the crankshaft timing belt sprocket and key onto the crankshaft.
  3. Set the crankshaft sprocket to Top Dead Center (TDC) by aligning the notch on the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing, then back off the sprocket three notches before TDC.
  4. Set the camshafts to align the timing marks on the sprockets with the marks on the rear timing belt cover.
  5. Install the belt on the rear camshaft sprocket first.
  6. Install a binder clip on the belt to the sprocket so it won't slip out of position.
  7. Keeping the belt taut, install it under the water pump pulley and around the front camshaft sprocket.
  8. Install a binder on the front sprocket and belt.
  9. Rotate the crankshaft to TDC.
  10. Continue routing the belt by the idler pulley and around the crankshaft sprocket to the tensioner pulley.
  11. Move the crankshaft sprocket clockwise to TDC to take up the belt slack. Check that all timing marks are in alignment.
  12. Reinstall the tensioner to the block but do not tighten it at this time.
  13. Using special tool No. MD998767 and a torque wrench on the tensioner pulley, apply 39 inch lbs. (4.4 Nm) of torque to the tensioner. Tighten the tensioner pulley bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm).
  14. With torque being applied to the tensioner pulley, move the tensioner up against the tensioner bracket and tighten the fasteners to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
  15. Remove the tensioner plunger pin, the tension is correct when the plunger pin can be removed and replaced easily.
  16. Rotate the crankshaft two revolutions clockwise and recheck the timing marks. Check to be sure the tensioner plunger pin can be easily installed and removed. If the pin does not remove and install easily, perform the procedure again.
  17. Reinstall the timing belt cover.
  18. Reinstall the engine mount bracket.

    Fig. Camshaft and crankshaft alignment marks-Chrysler 2.5L (VIN N) engines


To install:
  1. Install the timing belt tensioner and tighten the retaining bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (24 Nm), but do not remove the pin at this time.
  2. Check that all timing marks are still aligned.
  3. Use bulldog clips (large paper binder clips) or other suitable tool to secure the timing belt and to prevent it from slacking. Install the timing belt. Starting at the crankshaft, go around the idler pulley, then the front camshaft sprocket, the water pump pulley, the rear camshaft sprocket and the tensioner pulley.
  4. Be sure the belt is tight between the crankshaft and front camshaft sprocket, between the camshaft sprockets and the water pump. Gently raise the tensioner pulley, so that the belt does not sag, and temporarily tighten the center bolt.
  5. Move the crankshaft 1 / 4 turn counterclockwise, then turn it clockwise to the position where the timing marks are aligned.
  6. Loosen the center bolt of the tensioner pulley. Using MD998767 tensioner tool, and a torque wrench apply 3.3 ft. lbs. (4.4 Nm) tensional torque to the timing belt and tighten the center bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm). When tightening the bolt, be sure that the tensioner pulley shaft does not rotate with the bolt.
  7. Remove the tensioner plunger pin. Pretension is correct when the pin can be removed and installed easily. If the pin cannot be easily removed and installed it is still satisfactory as long as it is within its standard value.
  8. Check that the tensioner pushrod is within the standard value. When the tensioner is engaged the pushrod should measure 0.149-0.177 in. (3.8-4.5mm).
  9. Rotate the crankshaft two revolutions and check the timing marks. If the timing marks are not properly aligned remove the belt and repeat Steps 17 through 23.
  10. Install the timing belt covers.
  11. Install the engine mounting bracket.
  12. Lower the engine enough to install the engine mount onto bracket and remove the floor jack.
  13. Install the power steering pump bracket and pump.
  14. Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the retaining bolt to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  15. Install the accessory drive belts.
  16. Properly fill the cooling system.
  17. Connect the negative battery cable.
  18. Check for leaks and proper engine and cooling system operation.
