Yeah, you can't forget about those two bolts on the bottom of the cover.

Had a question and it relates to this so I'll ask here rather than start a new thread.

I know the recommended millage is 100,000 miles for the water pump,timing belt, tensioner.
I bought my car with just over 100,000 miles. I know the shop I bought it from didn't replace these things, and my guess is that whoever traded it in, traded it before doing the 100,000 mile maintenance to save some money and pass the buck to the next person.

I'm just assuming, it is possible that it was replaced before I bought it but I have no records that I can find out for sure one way or the other.

So my question is should I go ahead and replace it(water pump, belt, etc...) or should I just wait it out and wait for problems?
thanks :thumbup:

wait for problems + interference engine = a LOT more money in the long run!

Seriously, if you're capable of doing it, and you don't know when or if it was done, just do it! I just hit 60k and I'm considering it!

i just finished test driving mine, changed the timing belt and threw on an underdrive pully (smaller pully) 12 hours with testing the whole thing and refiling the transmission fluid (manual) :)

Hey just did mine (2004 SE MT) at 1179XX miles and it went great. The only thing that did not work was the bolt at the bottom of the tensioner plate/engine mount etc.... would not clear the body even with the car hoisted off the jack. the mount and tensioner plate would hit and would not drop low enough to clear completely.

If this were to occur no worries though just leave the bolt totally loose and once the motor is way up it will come out the top no problem even retightened it from the top.

3 new Goodyear GatorBack belts and sounds much better now. Should have done this earlier.

Old belt looked pretty good just not as tight anymore.

wow this job was cake took me like 3 hours, no haynes manual either why waste another 30.00 bucks ;) I must be a lukcy one because the puller I used was so tiny it was made for pulling alternator hub off I think as my balance came right off with hardly any extreme muscle...


or maybe just a bunch of weak noobs here :owned: that have no guns and take all weekend 5-10 hours ++ :beatstick: to do such a simple task as this ;)


hehe just kiddin thanks for all the pic's and posts you guys took the time do put here :)

3 hours is what the "book" calls for. I hope since I don't have rusted stuff either, it takes around there. I'd prefer not to be at it all day. The stuff is already on its way...

My WP was out when the car hit 70k miles due to the overdue flush of antifreeze probably.

The whine you are probably talking about is considered normal. Pretty much every Neon makes it in some form, some are just more noticeable than others for whatever reason. Mine seemed to lessen a lot when I did my UDP. So it may be related to the tension of the alternator belt, or maybe the size of the serp belt for the AC/PS.

I believe its the PS pump. Mine makes a supercharger-esque noise when I have it hooked up.
