How do I tell if my timing is off by one tooth?

Asked by May 05, 2013 at 11:38 PM about the 2002 Dodge Stratus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the timing belt, water pump and motor mount. I started it and it shakes and sounds like it is misfiring. Could my belt be off by one tooth?

It could. Take the timing cover back off and see if the timing marks line up correctly.
