TIMING BELT

1999 Plymouth Voyager • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 160,000 miles

I have a 1999 plymouth voyager 2.4. The timing belt broke. Putting one back is tough, is it suppose to be so tight that I need a praying tool to get it too fit. The belt tensioner is pullback. I checked at two different auto stores and the belt size is good. But it seems small. Or is there a technique to do it?

Yes, all the slack has to be pulled out of it toward the tensioner. It's not a loose fit.
