Hi,what engine does it have?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

it a v6

Expert:  dodge bum replied 8 years ago.
There was a couple 3.5 and 2.7,the 2.7 does not use a belt and if it breaks it pretty much distroys itself,if a 3.5 the belt breaks and is free wheeling and can just put a belt and be ok.Its a good idea to do water pump and tensioners,being your in L.A. could be approx 6-700.00 depending on the labor rate of the shop and parts mark up.

So at this time you do or dont know if the belt is broken?Do we possibly have another concern?

I take it to a shop this is what they are saying it the timing belt
Expert:  dodge bum replied 8 years ago.
Ok,was the belt just worn out or did something cause it to break? The engine is ok,they will just have to line everything up,they are a freewheeling engine and do not hit valves.
