2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 1

Inspection - This is Gregg's Car. The water pump seized and blew the timing belt. We decided to take it all the way down to the head because there was some question that a valve had bent as well. But other than a TON of carbon, it turned out to be OK. more at http://www.reinsmith.net

So if you are doing this job, loosen the AC compressor mounts and pull the inlet pipe, get a new seal, and do some extra sealing with high temp RTV! Make sure you get rid of the rust. Will save you later...
