    Angry My cam jumped, 2000 Chrysler cirrus 2.5 V6

    I've been working on a timing belt on my 2000 chrysler cirrus 2.5(mitsu) V6. I finally got it all apartand was putting the belt on, when I don't know what happened, the right sprocket jumped 90 degrees. I have tried to carefully move it back into place, but I feel quite a bit of tension when I try turning the cam sprocket back in the direction it turned from.

    Hello mjs469,

    If your crankshaft has not moved from the TDC (#1 -compression) position, then you should be able to move the camshaft back into position without causing any damage. If the spark plugs are still the bank that you are working with, you might consider removing them if you cannot align the camshaft -you are working against compression and valve spring tension.

    Had the fore thought to do that before I read your reply. my only issue now is getting the new belt on.

    Hello mjs469,

    They can be a tad tricky sometimes. We hope the rest of your project goes smoothly.
