I recently had my water pump go bad on my 2008 Avenger RT 3.4l. And I went to start changing it and realized it is contacted with all of the timing belt oil pump and all. Well after changing it. Which went very smoothly. Too smoothly (should have known something was going to f*** up). It will not start now. Please, andy help will be much appreciated thanks in advance.

Found this for the 2008 3.5 timing belt that may help:

TIMING BELT

CAUTION
The 3.5L is NOT a freewheeling engine. Therefore, the valve train rocker assemblies must be removed before attempting to rotate either crankshaft or camshafts independently of each other.


CAUTION
If camshafts have moved from the timing marks, always rotate camshaft towards the direction nearest to the timing marks (DO NOT TURN CAMSHAFTS A FULL REVOLUTION OR DAMAGE to valves and/or pistons could result).





TIMING GEAR ALIGNMENT

TIMING GEAR ALIGNMENT

  1. Align the crankshaft sprocket (10) with the TDC mark (9) on the oil pump cover.
  2. Align the camshaft sprockets (2, 7) timing reference marks (1, 8) with the marks on the rear cover.
  3. Install the timing belt (4) starting at the crankshaft sprocket (10) going in a counterclockwise direction. Install the belt around the last sprocket and maintain tension on the belt as it is positioned around the tensioner pulley (11).
NOTE
It is necessary to compress the plunger into the tensioner body and install a locking pin prior to reinstalling the tensioner. See Timing Belt Removal for tensioner compression procedure (Refer to Engine/Valve Timing/BELT and SPROCKETS, Timing - Removal).


  1. Hold the tensioner pulley (11) against the belt and install the reset (pinned) timing belt tensioner (2) into the housing. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 N·m (250 in. lbs.).
  2. When tensioner (12) is in place, pull the retaining pin to allow the tensioner to extend to the pulley bracket.
  3. Rotate the crankshaft sprocket (10) two revolutions and check the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft. The marks should line up within their respective locations. If the marks do not line up, repeat the procedure.
  4. Install the front timing belt cover (Refer to Engine/Valve Timing/COVER(S), Engine Timing - Installation)(Refer To List 1).
  5. Connect the negative battery cable and tighten nut to 5 N·m (45 in. lbs.).

NOTE
The Cam/Crank Variation Relearn procedure must be performed anytime there has been a repair/replacement made to a powertrain system, for example: flywheel, valvetrain, camshaft and/or crankshaft sensors or components (Refer to DTC-Based Diagnostics/MODULE, Powertrain Control (PCM) - Standard Procedure)(Refer To List 2)
