Dodge Timing Belt Replacement and Routine Dodge Service

Dodge Timing Belt

Dodge Timing belts (Dodge Cambelts) & Timing Chains control the Dodge engine valve cycle sequence to ensure correct fuel combustion timing and compression.

Interference engine design allows pistons and valves to interfere or make contact if the timing sequence is not set correctly or if the timing belt snaps resulting in piston and valve damage requiring an engine rebuild with new pistons and valves.

Dodge Timing Belt Replacement Intervals

Dodge Timing belts and Dodge timing chains should be replaced at the correct service intervals; especially on interference (most diesel) engines as belt wear causing incorrect timing may result in a very expensive repair bill.

Dodge Valve and Piston

Dodge Timing belt replacement involves synchronising valve and piston positions and setting the adjustable tensioning roller to ensure the belt is not overtightened putting additional strain on the camshaft bearings and crankshaft bearings correct adjustment of belt tension.

Dodge Engine Bay Fluids

The lubricants, hydraulic fluids and anti-freeze chemicals used within the Dodge engine bay can degrade the rubber polymer compounds used in timing belt manufacture. As a consequence the belt life can be greatly reduced, especially if exposed to increased operating temperatures

Dodge Timing Belt Kits

Quality Timing Belt Replacement Kits usually contain:-

  • Dodge Idlers
  • Dodge Tensioner pulleys

Dodge Manufacturer fitted Timing Belts will be designed for standard vehicle applications. Aftermarket timing belts can alter engine performance characteristics.

Dodge Timing Belt Fitting

Dodge Engines may come in many variations: single overhead cam (OHC), double Overhead Cam (DOHC), overhead valve (OHV) and the engine timing-cam belt can be used to drive other essential components such as the water pump and fuel injection pump on diesel engines.

The belt can run a series of pulleys from three on a simpler OHC Engine to 8 on a performance V6, V8 Engine layout.

Dodge Timing belt fitting is a complex operation that requires a great deal of labour to do properly

It is worth ensuring that other components likely to suffer the same wear and tear as the timing belt and might require a major service or replacement before your next timing belt change are replace at the same time.

Maximise timing belt life and service intervals. Consider replacing the Dodge water pump if it's driven off the same belt, also the Dodge camshaft and Dodge crankshaft oil seals. If the Dodge camshaft oil seal or Dodge crankshaft oil seal fail then oil will impregnate the cam belt causing failure.
