Question about 1999 Plymouth Breeze

2 Answers

I have a 1999 Plymouth Breeze, 2.4L, Double Overhead Cam. Just replaced water pump and timing belt. After reassembling everything the car now idles rough, stalls when coming to a stop. Almost sounds like a miss fire when idling. However, car runs smooth at highway speeds. Double checked timing marks and they are lined up like they should be. Thinking it could be plugs and plug wires, I replaced those too. Also cleaned the throttle body. Car still idles rough and stalls. Can anyone tell me what may be causing the car to idle rough and stall? Thanks in advance!

Dirty or disconnected IAC (Idle air control) valve, dirty mass air meter (Maf) or being slightly out of time can all cause idle/stall issues.

I have a 1999 plymouth breeze and replaced water pump and timing belt due to pump locked up and all the teeth gone off belt now. 2.0 SOHC that after setting belt and timing correctly the car wont start...


In general, backfiring indicates the cam, crank and ignition are out of time or out of phase. The timing marks on the crank and cam just line up the timing of the cam and crank. The alignment of the spark with them has to be phased at the right time too. Check the manual for how to set the distributor timing after an engine repair

Reset timingbelt on 1999 plymouth breeze sohc 2.0


When you break a timing belt, you get a kit with a new
water pump,pulley's,tensioners & belt

Also you get an instruction manual to follow for
the timing of the cams & such

If you only bought a belt, you should also have instructions

Nothing-- then you go to the internet & find a picture & also
can watch You Tube Video

If the belt broke-- what about bent valves,BEFORE,before
you address the belt replacement

I am looking to locate the water pump on a 99 plymouth breeze


The water pump on both the 2.0 and 2.4 is behind the timing cover on the passenger side. The water pump is driven by the timing belt, and typically this is not a repair for the non-experienced mechanic. If the timing components are not aligned properly when reassembling, internal damage to the engine will occur.

How much should a dealership charge to replace timing belt and water pump on 1999 Plymouth Breeze 2.0?


it depends what their door rate is to do the job and they can charge what they can as far as parts are concerned.you don`t say if its a dohc or a sohc(dual or single cam motor).roughly it would take about 3.5-5 hours to change the timing belt and about .4-.7 to change the water pump.call around and compare prices as this doesn`t have to be done at a dealer.

We replaced the Water pump and Timing belt on a 1999 Plymouth Neon 2.0 Single Overhead Cam Engine. Engine Cranks, Is getting Fuel...but no spark. We changed the Coil Pack. It still cranks, but no...


If its not getting spark the choices are limited. You already replaced the coil pack so whats left is ignition module, crank sensor, knock sensor, cam sensor, or the timing was not was not set properly when putting it back together. Any one of those would create a no spark situation.

1996 plymouth breeze, leaking water pump. how


this depends on your level of mechanical expertise - it is an internal water pump, meaning you will need to disassemble the timing components to service (this is also a good time to replace the timing belt, as it needs to come off anyways and the belt is relatively inexpensive). if your vehicle has the 2.4 liter engine, there is nothing very difficult about this timing belt. however, i tend to caution people about attempting this if they are inexperienced, as reassembling the timing components incorrectly can cost you and engine. good luck!

Where is the crank sensor located on 1999 plymouth breeze, 2.4 l double overhead cam?


The crankshaft sensor is behind the crankshaft pulley or harmonic balancer. You can access this by pulling off your tire and the inner wheel well. Then use an air impact preferably a 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch impact to loosen the bolt. Next you will need a pulley puller to got it off the sensor is directly behind the pulley make sure you set the sensor to where the old one was set at.

My car jump time


#1 are you sure it jumped time?#2 how do you know this? if in fact it has jumped time you will need to have the timing belt replaced.the average interval for replacement is 60,000-80,000.it is also a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time as it is driven by the timing belt.
