all timing marks are on the belts and cams. just line them all up and it will be timed
Answer Clogged radiator, bad water pump, stuck thermostat, non-functioning fan. and may I add lacking of fluids.

same problem It takes time as you can't get to if from above because of the exhaust manifold and from below because of the transfer case. The shop manual only talks about the …2WD because it does not have transfer case and that cost my sister to pay a dealer $700 to replace on her 2WD MPV. Disconnect the battery. Remove the skid plate and bottom cover. 1. Take off the powersteering and alternator belt. Remove power steering pulley by taking off the nut and the pully comes off the fluted shaft. This required in an alternator replacement as the pulley blocks the alternator hanger bolt. 2. Remove the power steering pump and be careful where you disconnect the plumbing because you cause the pump valve to fall out if you remove the bottom hose connection from the bolt on the bottom of the pump. 3. Disconnect the electrical connections and remove the alternator. 4. Remove the transfer case drive shaft to get the angle to remove the starter bolts. 5. Now that you have a front access to the starter, disconnect the electrical connections now or after you drop the starter. 6. Remove the starter bolts from the transmission side. Take a break or wait till the next day. 7. Replace the starter and this might take two persons. One to hold the starter in place. I stuck some towels under the starter to hold it in place to reinstall the starter bolts. Be sure to reconnect the electrical connections as in the removal. Taking my time, it took two sessions as I wanted to be refreshed for the reinstall. It is not hard, but tedious and dirty and you have to move around to get to the different things. I used a Napa rebuilt and am happy with it. A friend of mine finally used a Napa rebuilt for his 77 Ford F250 diesel and found it to be stronger than your lifetime guarantee ones. By the way, I found that replacing the passenger side exhaust manifold gasket got rid of the ticking lifer noise at startup. Finally did it because it blew and the the usual reason for curing the ticking problems because it sounds like lifter noise is replacing the cam shaft. The center port is higher than the two ends, probably because of warpage and broke the firewall manifold bolt. Used an Arkasas milling machine to reduce the difference. (A flat bastard file) While you have the manifold out, it would be a good time to replace the heater hose that is in the same area and is unreachable otherwise.

Answer: A 1990 Mazda MPV with oil leaking from the top of the engine sounds like it could likely be the valve cover gasket(s) - (4 cyl 2.6L engine has one valve cover g…asket; the 3.0L V6 engine has two v/c gaskets). The valve cover gasket is made of rubber, and eventually deteriorates and becomes brittle over time ... at which point oil will begin to leak. It is recommended that the valve cover grommets be changed at the same time as the valve cover gasket(s). Those are also made of rubber and get old and brittle over time. If the oil leak is coming from further down below the level of the valve cover gaskets, it could be a camshaft seal leak. On the MPVs with V6 engine, there is a plastic piece (called a camshaft holder?) with an o-ring that often develops a leak. While you're checking that possibility, another common issue is oil leakage from the distributor shaft o-ring. Finally, if you see oil on top of the valve cover where the oil cap sits, you might also check the seal under the oil cap to be sure it's not worn and leaking from there. Another possibility: After replacing the valve cover gasket twice on my 1996 Mazda MPV V6 3.L, and still finding a leak, I took my van to a local repair shop and they found a crack in the passenger side valve cover. The crack was welded and resurfaced. Finally, I have no more oil leaks onto the exhaust manifold.

The difference is that a 2wd car will only have two of the four wheels supplied with power to drive, either front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. A car with 4wd will …have power supplied to all four wheels, giving it better driving abilities in wet or slick conditions. You can check out the car maker's site to see if the model you are interested in is 2 or 4 wheel drive, or check out a site like driverside.com or car and driver to see if it's an older car and you're not sure. In the USA, Subaru makes all of their cars with 4WD (AWD).

A 2wd Infiniti QX56 doesn't have the Rotary Drive Wheel selection switch that is to the right of the steering wheel. You can also pick up this info by using carfax, carfax wil…l tell you if it has 4wd.
2wd = Two Wheel Drive. This means that only two of the cars weels are connected to the engine and makes the car move. It can be either the back or the front wheels. Usually …family cars are front wheel driven, this is over all safer and makes the car less likely to spin around. Sports cars are preferred back wheel driven because it improves handling (when driven by an experienced driver) 4wd = four wheel drive awd = all wheel drive These two are the same thing. It is a system where all four wheels of the car are connected to the engine and is very good on vehicles used where you need more traction than usual. there are many different ways to get power to the ground in a car... 2wd is usually rear wheel drive in pickup trucks, and usually front wheels drive in a car 4wd in most vehicles is selectable, by a lever, shifter, or button and is usually rear wheel drive until you select 4wd with the selecter which engages the front wheels. the transfer case divides the power evenly between the front and rear driveshafts. dependant on the transfer case it is usually not supposed to run on the highway in 4wd unless conditions are bad (snow, ice, hard rain) (ex. np 231 or the popular atlas) but some transfer cases are ok to run at all time in any condition you just have to know what your specs are. (np 242) same as jeep grand Cherokee or the army humvee. Awd is ALL time 4wd that is not selectable and is ok to run on the highway under any condition because the transfer case has a differential in it like your axle does. this one without any traction control system gives the most power to the wheel with the least traction. there are many different ways to get power to the ground in a car... 2wd is usually rear wheel drive in pickup trucks, and usually front wheels drive in a car 4wd in most vehicles is selectable, by a lever, shifter, or button and is usually rear wheel drive until you select 4wd with the selecter which engages the front wheels. the transfer case divides the power evenly between the front and rear driveshafts. dependant on the transfer case it is usually not supposed to run on the highway in 4wd unless conditions are bad (snow, ice, hard rain) (ex. np 231 or the popular atlas) but some transfer cases are ok to run at all time in any condition you just have to know what your specs are.

No, There is a difference of 3 years in the manufacturing period....!

Replace your starter without removing alternator, RH axle, power steering pump or splash pan. 1 Disconnect positive from battery. 2 Jack up RH side and use jack …stands. 3 On 4WD, disconnect the 4 bolts to all wheel drive and slide axle out of your way. 4 Remove 3 bolts from starter. 5 Remove bolt holding wire harness to fuel line. 6 Access starter from under the hood. 7 Wiggle starter to free it up. 8 Disconnect 2 wires. 9 You can get starter out by wiggling it between engine and RH inner fender. 10 This is important: Follow coolant hose that is right above the starter to where it connects with metal pipe. Disconnect it and put a plug into the hose end. Now tie a tie strap to the top of the hose. Now weave another long tie strap to that one and attach it around a solid object like an intake tube. Now keep pulling on the hose until it is very tight. This will get it out of your way down below so you can get the new starter in. Now install new starter in reverse order.
