i replaced my timing belt on a dodge neon. And i tryed to start it and popping noises started.what does that mean?
Will my car run again?. I changed water pump,tentioner and the belt. So then after replacing it all I tryed to start it an it would turn but then it started making a popping noise.but it did not turn on..
Whoops. Did you get the timing marks right? What engine do you have? and what year neon?

My uncle replaced it for me and as I tryed to start it (wouldn't start but it turns) it started to pop...its a 2001 dodge neon engine is a 2.0
Its a 2002 dodge neon..2.0
Opps that's an interference engine. Stop trying to start it and double check timing marks. ASAP. If it is not timed correctly you will have bent valves.
Right on to that. The 2002 is a SOHC but still what dandyoun said please heed
Fordnut maybe they will get lucky but I fear the worst.
No it wont bend valves it will bend piston rod. ....Remember that dandy?
Lol. Yes I remember.
Muzzie. Fordnut speaking of another owner. Lol. Yours will be valve issues if not timed correctly.
Lol. Poor owner car messed up and you got my lmao fordnut.
So basically its useless now....freak!!...well thanks guys..sad day now :(
No it's not useless. Fix timing belt then do compression check. Any with 0 psi will have bent valves but you might get lucky and it not be off enough to have bent them. Even if valves are bent not that bad of a fix if you handy with tools.
Agreed. Don't despair, all is not lost. Useless is way too strong a word
Make your Uncle do it
Thanks I'll try an work on it myself..seems lke my uncle failed haha...well dis lady has to get under the hood an redo it.. :D but thanks again..fingers crossed
