2000 Dodge Neon Head and Timing Belt - Part 1

Installing timing belt on 2000 Neon
Procedure for installing a timing belt on a 2000 Dodge Neon 2.0 SOHC engine. Always check and follow factory procedures for your specific application. I prefer to mark all timing marks on block - crankshaft - cam gear- and cover for my optically challenged eyes, also makes verification much easier after assembly. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent. jsp?pageId=0996b43f812778ce
