3.2 Timing Belt Replacement
So, with 235K on my 2000 Intrepid, I figure it's time to change the timing belt and water pump. Done a fair amount of back yard mechanic work on it over the past year or so...new belts, change the steering rack, new radiator, new half-shaft & bearing hub..so I figure I can tackle the timing belt change. However, since every job I take on, I'm doing it for the first time, there are always things that I wish I had known before I started. So I'm trying to avoid that if possible with the timing belt job.
I have the FSM, so I can follow that pretty well. But does anyone have any tips to make the job go easier, or things to do to avoid problems. I worry a bit about screwing up the timing on the sprockets. Also, I thought I saw somewhere in the forum that I could get away without pulling the crankshaft pulley...not sure if that is accurate or not.
If anyone has advice, or can point me to another post/thread, that would be great!!
