Does my Dodge Neon 2005 SXT Manual have a timing belt or timing chain?
The standard 2.0L 4-cyl engine on the 2005 Neon uses a timing belt. This A588 interference engine was used in Dodge/Plymouth Neon and Dodge Stratus/Plymouth Breeze from 1995-2005. The Gates timing belt by itself runs about $40, but get a kit that includes the belt and tensioner together. But I would also replace the water pump at the same time. 1Aauto has a kit WITH water pump for $125. http://www.1aauto.com/1A/TimingBelts/Dodge/Neon/1AEEK00198/599228
rockauto.com has the full gates kit for under 100$
