This design has no tensioner. Check the sprockets for wear on the tips--especially the crank sprocket. With the cover off, turn the crankshaft with a socket and see how close the chain comes to slipping backward on the sprocket. There are complete replacement procedures at AutoZone.com, which I will try to paste in below.

3.3L and 3.8L Engines

See Figure 18



0900c15280215ddb.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 18: Timing mark alignment-3.3L and 3.8L engines

  1. If possible, position the engine so that the No. 1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Drain the coolant.
  2. Remove the timing chain case cover. For more information, refer to the Front Timing Cover and Seal procedure, earlier in this section.
  3. Remove the camshaft gear attaching cup washer and remove the timing chain with both gears attached. Remove the timing chain snubber.

To install:
  1. Assemble the timing chain and gears.
  2. Turn the crankshaft and camshaft to line up with the key way locations of the gears.
  3. Slide both gears over their respective shafts and use a straight edge to confirm alignment.
  4. Install the cup washer and camshaft bolt. Tighten the bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  5. Check camshaft end-play. The specification with a new plate is 0.002-0.006 in. (0.051-0.052mm) and 0.002-0.010 in. (0.51-0.254mm) with a used plate. Replace the thrust plate if not within specifications.
  6. Install the timing chain snubber.
  7. Thoroughly clean and dry the gasket mating surfaces.
  8. Install new O-rings to the block.
  9. Remove the crankshaft oil seal from the cover. The seal must be removed from the cover when installing to ensure proper oil pump engagement.
  10. Using a new gasket, install the chain case cover to the engine.
  11. Make certain that the oil pump is engaged onto the crankshaft before proceeding, or severe engine damage will result. Install the attaching bolts and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  12. Use tool C-4992, or equivalent, to install the crankshaft oil seal. Install the crankshaft pulley using a 5.9 in. suitable bolt and thrust bearing and washer plate L-4524, or equivalent. Make sure the pulley bottoms out on the crankshaft seal diameter. Install the bolt and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  13. Install all other parts removed during the chain case cover removal procedure and fill the engine with oil.
  14. Connect the negative battery cable, road test the vehicle and check for leaks.

The belt routing diagram is located on the top radiator cross member by the hood latch. You should see it when you open the hood. If it is not there, all Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans, from 1993 to at least 1999, used the same 3.3L engine setup, so find someone with one and look for the diagram where I described.

Look on the top radiator cross member by the hood latch- the belt routing diagram should be there. If not, the same engine and accessory configuration was used on all Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans through, at least, l999. If you can find any of those with the 3.3liter engine, the diagram should be located where I said. Good luck

my temperature gauge keeps going up and down when

my temperature gauge keeps going up and down when i drive it goes hotter specifically when we go past 60, is the thermostat sticking if so should i keep driving

Posted by on

pull off the hose at the top of the motor, if you can see the thermostat try pushing on the center with a screwdriver, it is most likely stuck open. You may be able to free it by pushing the center back and forth till there is no longer any resitance, but it needs to be replaced. As for the temp sensor, if it is bad the guage will flicker, representing a bad connection. If the gauge just rises and falls by pattern the sensor and wiring is probably fine.

Dodge used an ABS system for 2 years that didn't have a vacuum booster. Instead it used ABS pressure from the pump motor for the power brakes. This is the system you have. The ABS pump is mounted on top of the transmission. Is the pump running when the pedal is hard to push? Sometimes the pressure sensor in the ABS module will go bad and the pump won't run. You will get a hard pedal and the ABS light and the BRAKE lights will be on. The code in the ABS control module will be LOW BRAKE ACCUMULATOR PRESSURE.

what does it mean when the check gauges light comes on

Posted by on

Answer

The "Check Gauges" light means pretty much what it says. When this light comes on, it is because one of your gauges is not operating within the "NORMAL" range. You need to look at all of your gauges to see what is going on. It could be low fuel, low oil pressure, high temperature, low battery voltage, or whatever else your instrument cluster may be equipped with for gauges.

Most people do not pay a lot of attention to their gauges because bad things rarely happen. This light is designed to get your attention and MAKE you look at your gauges because the computer system has determined that SOMETHING is not right with them.
