Thermostat replacement . The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing at the engine side end of the upper radiator hose. \n. \nYou have to drain the engine coolant from the radiator until it is below the level of where the thermostat is.\n. \nMake sure you don't spill any coolant, or yo…u clean it up if you do. Antifreeze tastes sweet. Dogs, cats and other animals are very attracted to it. It is fatal when they drink it. For us, too.\n. \n2.3L engine: You should remove the charge air duct, air filter housing and resonator. Then take off the two thermostat housing bolts, open the housing and pull the thermostat.\n. \n2.5L engine: remove the hose mounting bolt and separate the pipe from the outlet housing. You'll find an O-ring between the hose and the housing. You need to replace that one with a new one. Remember to buy one before you start. The engine harness bracket bolt now has to be taken off, then put the wire harness out of the way. Take off the housing bolt, remove the housing cover, the thermostat as well as the gasket (remember to buy a new one before you start).\n. \nBefore you put in the new thermostat, make sure the surfaces of both parts of the thermostat housing are very clean.\n. \nOn putting in the new thermostat, the side where the spring is must point towards the engine; jiggle pin must face in the direction of the radiator. Some models have a tab on the thermostat that fits into a notch at the housing.\n. \n2.5L engine: Use a new gasket. Its projection should point in the flow direction of the radiator. Put the housing cover back. Apply the lower bolt first, but don't tighten it yet. Fix the engine harness bracket, but leave the bolt loose. Now tighten both bolts to 14-19 ft.lbs. Put the new O-ring between the pipe and the housing. To avoid damage to the 0-ring, make it wet with some coolant. Tighten the hose mounting bolt to 14-19 ft.lbs.\n. \n2.3L engine: Close the housing-thermostat assembly and tighten both bolts to 14-18 ft.lbs. Put back the resonator, air filter housing and charge air duct.\n. \n2.5L & 2.3L engine: Fill cooling system. Apply answer to "How do you bleed the coolant for a 1998 Mazda Millenia." This will prevent bad and costly surprises of an incompletely filled cooling system. Make sure there are no leaks. (MORE)
I replaced the one on the passenger side. You have to remove the plastic undercover first to access it. There is a larger bolt that holds the housing in place. It needs to be removed to pull the housing out. once you get this out its pretty easy, its just getting into the thing that is the problem.
to keep the timing gears im place, each gear will have a dot or arrow, pay attention to that, get the belt lined up, then used a pair of vice grips on the belt to hold it all in place\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nYou stick a jack under the oil pan but with a wood on it so you don't dent the oil pan…. If the jack doesn't fit, you will have to use two jacks. One is for lifting the car enough to get the second jack under it. You then lift the engine from the oil pan just enough for the weight to be on the jack instead of the engine mounts and not actually lift up the engine. You then remove the upper right engine mount. Then, you take off the timing belt cover and a bunch of other crap that you should buy a Haynes or Chilton manual for. (MORE)
Answer . if its anything like my mx6 u need to loosen the 17 mm nut on the pulley on the pass side a tight fit then from on top the adjustment 8 or 10mm i think should move this pulley to loosen or tighten the belt make sure u loosen the big nut on pulley though or u will bend the long threaded …adj. rod (MORE)
It's attached to the back of the intake manifold, under the bracket that supports the wiring harness.
I am having mine changed at a garage for 200.00 ca labor plus parts 2.2 hrs labor and buy the parts at the cheapest place you can find. If you do not time it properly you will damage the engine. 200.00 is a small price to pay for a job well bone and peace of mind...good luck...The parts will be unde…r 200.00 for a belt and tensioner.

take it to a shop its behind the timing belt cover you have to take every thing off the front of the engine including the motor mount!!!
Answer . \npretty easy, a couple bolts...libraries have shop manuals you can read and copy sections out of...:)
Answer . Your dashboard lights suddenly not working is almost always your indication that your taillights are out. If the fuse for your taillights is blown and you replace it, your dash lights should be fine.
open your hood, lk to the rt of your motor. rt beside your air filter, u will see a hose running from the bottom of your radiator. follow this hose an you will see a gooseneck with 2 bolts(12mm wrench)! you also have to remove the little hose from over the bolt 2 the left, plus 4 connecters! find th…e distributor and rt behind it u will see the thermostat housing. best 2 get some tacky spray 4 the gasket. oh yeah u also have 2 remove a bolt that holding the line. a ttl of 3 bolts 2 be removed!!!. shermdagreat (MORE)
answer . 29s here the easiest way is to remove the air intake hose (drivers side of engine)completely and follow the lower hose off the radiator to the steel thermostat housing their should be (2) bolts holding it together remove and replace thermostat. NOTE: USE A NEW GASKET ONLY, DO NOT RE-USE …THE OLD ONE, GASKET PAPER OR RTV GASKET SEALANT THESE WILL LEAK AFTER A SHORT TIME. AND YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVE YOUR SYSTEM BLED (REMOVE AIR POCKETS) PROFESSIONALLY, IF THEIR IS EVEN THE SMALLEST AIR POCKET IT WILL CAUSE THE CAR TO RUN HOT. (MORE)
Answer . If it's the V6 (can't answer for the 4), it's not easy, a lot of the engine accessory area has to be disassembled for this and valve cover removed (requiring new valve gaskets which are probably leaking anyhow), etc. Anything regarding timing belt (or water pump), and front wheel beari…ngs, I consider "non-user serviceable", it's something for Mazda or a reputable Mazda certified repair department to handle. For the timing belt, simply go to Mazda, tell them you need your 60,000 mile (or equivalent multiple) service performed, get your wallet out to the tune of $840 or so USA dollars, and have alternate transport for a couple of days. This will get a lot of stuff cleaned and checked up, if you buy the parts separately, including replacement gaskets (valve cover (front required, both should be done though since you are in there), timing cover gasket, etc, you'll end up spending more for the parts than Mazda does for the overhaul, trust me on that.

Cap & Rotor??? . These cars do not have a cap and rotor. They have direct ignition and they are located on top of the spark plugs. There are no servicable parts except the plugs. . Cap & Rotor??? . These cars do not have a cap and rotor. They have direct ignition and they are located on top …of the spark plugs. There are no serviceable parts except the plugs. Of course they have a Cap and Rotor I have recently replaced mine. Before you start you need to move housing for the air filter so you have room to work. There are 2 screws that attach the Cap. Once removed the Cap will come off. The Rotor is located directly under the Cap. Just pull if off and push the new one on. Once new Rotor is installed take your new Cap and put it next to the old Cap. Make sure you install the spark plug wires in the new Cap in the same holes as the old Cap. Install one wire at a time. No need to rush take your time and do it right or the car will not start. Put the 2 screws back in to attach new Cap and your done. (MORE)
OK first, I just replaced the driver's side on my 02 Milly (still sweating) and it is simple now that I know what to expect. It may bit a bit different on the earlier models but on mine... 1st: Jack the car up a few inches to get my big head under it then a few more inches for good measure (pun inte…nded). 2nd: Remove the four 8mm bolts holding the plastic that hides everything and bend it back. Then cough as the dirt falls onto your face. 3rd: Change to 10mm racket and find the only bolt holding the assembly in place (hint it's on the bottom facing you). That bolt goes into an 'arm' attached to the light assembly. 4th: Push up and out carefully as not to damage any wiring that it permanently attached to the housing and should not be removed. 5th: With assembly in hand (yes, there is actually enough wire to hold it suspended) there are two (or more depending on who you listen to) Phillips head screws to remove to expose bulb. 6th: Push down retaining pin and out comes the burnt bulb. Sure don't touch the new bulb... yada yada, but if you do just wipe off any body oil, dust, rust, sweat and tears off it before reassembly. 7th: TEST the bulb with it seated in the bumper before wiggling back into place. A firm push of the lens will line the 10mm bolt with the only hole it can go back into. 8th: Replace 8mm bolts (if you can find them in the dirt pile) holding the $30,000 (new) plastic and unnecessary flange and viola your done, almost. 9th: Lower car back onto solid ground, put up tools, crank car, test all the lights, high-low, turn, hazard... don't be the one I have to tell your missing a bulb because I will. Good driving! Daren Connell, 02 Milly 1 1/2 years. (MORE)
to get at the ecu(or pcm, as Mazda calls it) you pull the radio head unit. it is behind it. and it is IN there. the hardest part is to disconnect the wire harness's, which are BEHIND it, and really hard to get at. pry off the carpet by the accelerator, and you will see the connectors. it might be ea…sier to pry off the connectors before unbolting the unit. removing it will test your mettle.

Answer 1 . There generally are no "signs," or symptoms which indicate the need to replace a timing belt. Most of the time, the belt fails without any warning.. For this reason, it is important to follow the manufacturer's time interval recommendation for timing belt replacement. . Although not… true for all vehicles, the failure of a timing belt during operation of the engine can result in severe and expensive damage to the pistons, valves, and even the valvetrain. (MORE)
In order to remove the water pump on a 2000 Mazda Millennia, youmust first remove the timing belt and the pulley for the waterpump. Remove the pump itself by detaching the four bolts that aresecuring it. Next, replace any gaskets, install the new pump, thenthe pulley, and then the timing belt.
timing belts are fairly easy to fix ,you need the # on the belt to get the right replacement ,go to an auto body shop,they know how to do this job.
my 95 had triangles on the gears. each one had to be aligned with marks on the belt. i think...we had an old book that showed us that, but the book didn't hold the secret other than tell us there were marks under the grime to look for.
There are four types of belts on a 1997 Mazda Millenia S. There are 4 seatbelts, a timing belt, a serpentine or drive belt, and a fan belt. Please refer to your owners manual for instructions on how to replace them. If you do not have an owners manual, you may purchase one through Amazon.com
It don't have to be changed but if you do change it when you change the water pump,you might save yourself a lot hassel a little later.Also it depends how many miles it has on it I'm not familiar with the Protege But if you follow good workshop practice A timing belt is best renewed whenever it has …been removed for other maintainence work Think also about replacing the tensioner & any other idlers at the same time Best wishes (MORE)
Live Longer, pay a mechanic on this one my friend. The Millenias and their Commonwealth cousins the "Xedos" all suffered a common defect resulting in MOST CEL issues. This engine configuration typically results in the need for replacement of 1 to 2 O2 sensors and / or the DREADED KNOCK Sensor emb…edded deep in the Manifold assembly. Mine ran 3 years with this CEL on due to the cost of labour one item to replace. The sensor was only 165 bucks while the labour to install was nearly 800. I will admit once it was replaced I was not only legal again for the Emmissions test, but the thing ran smoother than it ever did ina ll seasons PLUS I got nearly 2 points to my highway Mileage. Now the codes are confusing on this because two of the O2 sensors share the same circuit and the code wont necessarily identify WHICH o2 is actually bad, that unfortunately is hit or miss. The KNOCK sensor code is separate and distinct however but all will result in a costly set of repairs. Good Luck (MORE)
The previous response was: "I have a Mazda millenia 1998 that has over 200,000 miles on it. I have always replaced my timing belt every 60,000 miles. I hope this helps." The manual says to change at 105,000. The reality is that the belts are kevlar and will likely last much longer. The engine is no…n-interference so it will not damage the engine if it breaks. The experts I speak with say they would drive it until it breaks. It will cost you around $500 at least in labor to replace and many times if the job is done improperly you will have other problems as a result. For the record, my 99 S has 110,000 on the original belt. I'm not even thinking about replacing it... until it breaks (if that ever happens). (MORE)
I am not a mechanic but, this was an easy fix. There are 4 bolts that you'll remove, 2 that hold the caliper and 2 that hold the hydraulic system. Loosen all 4 bolts and remove. The caliper will be released and you simply remove 2 spring clips and remove the old pads. Use a C clamp to comnpress the …brake hydraulic piston. Then reverse the the removal procedure and there you are. It's a very simple deal. Of all the brakes I've replaced this was fairlly painless. (MORE)
Depends on where you take it. (Part of the country) In Metro Atlanta, 900 bucks In Chattanooga TN, 650 Now in doing this spend the extra 200 for the rest of the belts since the labor is all together in the ONE job. When you go back and do your other belts, you have to pay labour all over agai…n. (Recommend you take it to the dealer ESPECIALLY for these S types. There is retuning an timing adjustments that require the experts) (MORE)
Mazda millenia's have the same kind of key as a Lexus...the dealership is the only place that i know of... You have to find a locksmith that has a "sidewinder" cutting machine. They can cut the key much cheaper than the dealer!
I had to change mine on my 2000 Mazda Millenia. Most likely its the same way. There should be a plastic cover around the running light. If you can peek down in the space between you'll see that it's being held in by several metal hooks. It's like most exterior parts; you'll need a flathead screwdriv…er and gently take off the plastic cover. Next, you'll see four screws holding the light in place. Carefully unscrew these (not letting them fall because you'll never be able to grab them unless you've got really small hands) and the light housing should pull out. The actual light is on the back just unhook it and put in a new one. Also note that you should avoid touching the actual bulb with your bare hands as this will damage the life of the bulb. (MORE)
i need a diagram to show me how to remove a starter on millenia s 1999 mazda
you gotta pull off the knuckle, and have the bearing pressed out, and a new one pressed in
pre cats or main cat? most likely the pre cats, which are part of the exhaust manifold. both have to come off from underneath. front is not too bad, remove the "Y" pipe first, then it comes out. the rear one will take much longer. you have to remove the entire exhaust, and a crossmember that… the exh pipe goes over. the pre cat oxygen sensor is really hard to get at, you will need a couple of extensions and universals. you can just barely get it out by turning and twisting, if not, try removing the heat shield. if that dont work, you will have to pull the right side axle and jack shaft. i have always been able to get it out without removing the axle or the heat shield.

THis is actually an easy task as I just did it to my 2002 Millena S. You start by removing the (2) bolts holding the caliper to the mounts. Slightly tap the caliper off of the rotor using a hammer. While supporting the caliper remove the front side break pad leaving the break pad nearest the cylinde…r in place. You do this so you can attach a C clamp & slowing push the cylinder back into the caliper. Carefull not to go to fast as you are pushing the break fluid back into the master cylinder. Once this is complete you can remove the old pad & install the new pads just as the old ones came out. Be sure to use plently of squeek suppressant (supplied with the new pads) on the back of the break pads to avoid sweeks later. Reinstall the caliper & new pads over the rotor & reinstall the (2) mounting bolts. Repeat the procedure for all (4) breaks. Good Luck! (MORE)
These keys are lazer cut keys. I had to order mine from the Mazda Dealer. They used the VIN number to order it. Took about 1 week and cost about $80.00 bucks!
Wikipedia says Mazda 6 BUT There really is no equivalent. Mazda moved away from the mid size up-scale market altogether. The Millenia was to be the flagship model for a luxury line that Mazda was planning in the 1990's like what Toyota started with the Lexus, and Honda with the Acura. It never happ…ened and Mazda went after after the small/mid sized sporty type market. (MORE)
Which one - 2.5L or 2.3L ? In the case of the 2.5L, there are four, only one which is easily visible. the rest are difficult at best to see much less get common tools in to DIY. Live Longer- Pay a shop to find the right one that needs replaced and let them do it.
Cant move my steering wheel Do you think its the timing belt or the power steering pump Mazda Millenia 98?
Are you parked and just getting in ? Or do you mean already running. I can however tell you that it is NOT a timing belt. M
There is a spring clip under the front of the switch. Push a thin blade between the front of the switch housing and the roof padding and you can pull the front of the switch down. The housing should pull out forward as the back of the housing is held up by a plastic tab.
Do yourself a favour here, these are a bear for DIY. Just pay a shop to do this because even though your codes may indicate which circuit or bank, two of the four for my engine for example, share the SAME location code which means Either or BOTH could be bad. PLUS if you think you can just swap …them out to until you find the bad one, the act of putting a good one on the same circuit as a bad one can make your new one fail on testing. Been there, done that, got a dirty Tshirt to prove it. M Good Luck (MORE)
You just discovered how inconvenient it is to lose all power for some unknown reason out of the blue. But to answer your question - no, you do not need to replace the engine. It is not a interference motor. Meaning that the valves will not hit the piston tops as the valve train freewheels because th…e timing belt broke. Congratulation for diagnosing the problem, it took me a while before I figured it out when it happened to me - on a Toyota cressida. If you have a timing belt it is a good idea to replace it when scheduled or u risk being stuck out who knows where. If the motor happens to be an interference motor - you will have had major engine damage, cannot be avoided. If it is a non-interference motor (There are reference books that will need you VIN number to say exactly what stock motor you have in the vehicle), there is a slight chance you might have damaged it, but more often than not it is just the inconvenience of the whole issue. Beware that some service shops will mislead you to scare you into a expensive service. I have assumed that we are talking about a 2.3 liter supercharged motor in your Millenia. Just look it up yourself at the library or online to be sure in your case. (MORE)
Look through your users manual to get started. This will explainthe parts that are needed and how to install the new parts.
there are 2 serpentine belts on the 2.3. the outermost one drives the compressor/power steering/waterpump. the inner one drives the alternator/ac compressor/vacuum pump. to change either, you need to relieve the tension on the automatic tensioner, i have a special tool for this. i also pull off …the right wheel, and remove the lower splash shield. pulling the motor mount and the upper radiator hose gives you a lot of clearance, but it takes longer. (MORE)
big job. the black plastic cover has to come off, so a lot of stuff comes off to gain access. you may as well change the timing belt and all other components at the same time. i have never done it on a 2.5, but on the 2.3 i also pull the motor mount and the upper radiator hose to gain access. y…ou will have to pull the upper hose anyway, and on a 2.3 the belt tensioners are mondo, it is really difficult to release the tension with just a box wrench, i have a special belt tool that has a 2 foot extender for leverage. lower splash shield has to come off, engine has to be supported, right wheel comes off, yada, yada. again, on the 2.5 it is way easier than on the 2.3 (MORE)
this is a bit tricky because the e brake are shoes that fit inside the disc. you will see an access hole usually with a rubber plug, that hole has to be at the 12 o'clock position, then you have to loosen a cam that will allow the shoes to collapse inward, then you can remove the disc.
i have never done a starter, but to get to it, you gotta pull the battery and the battery tray. then you will see it. fsm says to also pull the intercooler, dunno if that is necessary. looks fairly straightforward to me.
On the 2002 Mazda 626 , 2.0 liter 4 cylinder and 2.5 liter V6 engines ( 105,000 miles ) according to the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. )
The car has to be jacked up and the passenger side wheel removed and even one of the motor mounts removed just to START. All this to gain the necessary clearance to begin the complicated procedure. This to be done to replace the water pump and rubber timing belt every 7 yrs or so depending on usage.… Necessary but a big pain. (MORE)
well, the engine will stop running, so you will lose all your power steering and power brakes, and you could hit something. that could damage the engine. but the engine is NON interference, which means if the belt breaks, the valves dont hit the pistons.
There was no replacement for the Millenia. Too bad as it makes me keep my now 11 year old Millenia S.
The 3.5L V6 used in the 2007 CX-9 and the 3.7L V6 used since 2008 both feature a timing chain instead of a timing belt. Unlike timing belts, timing chains are much more durable and do not require periodic replacement. They are designed to last for the entire life of the engine.
You did not install the belt correctly. It is more than likely out of time. I would advise you to have an expert look at it. You're lucky in that this is not an interference engine otherwise you would've had serious damage when you attempted to start the engine.
