does a 1997 1.5l maxda protege have a timing belt or timing chain. When should i change it.
Every 60,000 miles in a 93 Mazda Protege
Hoo I set the correct timing on a 1993 mazda protege
YOU DON'T WANT TO TRY THIS BY YOURSLF IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE
Mazda recommends that the belt be replaced every 105k.
No tools needed, that 1997 Cadillac Deville doesn't have a timing belt.
It is under the timing cover and driven by the timing belt. Anytime you change one it is best to replace both as far as cost is the same.
You should change the timing belt on a 2003 when it wears out or breaks. Changing the belt beforehand is not needed.
yes its a timing belt if its the 2.0 L fs engine
transmition with chain.
I was looking at the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) and for the 1600 cc engine in a 2003 Mazda Protege ( Canada ) it shows ( 60,000 miles )
Removal of the timing chain cover, timing chain, and head are needed
No belt it is a chain - no changing needed
IF ITS A 1.8, THEN ITS NEXT TO THE TIMING COVER
On a 2003 Mazda Protege it must be changed at 105,000 miles. This is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur.
The recommended timing belt interval is at 160000 kilometers or 100000 miles.
Send it out to be fixed. Special tools are needed as well as a lift. You should also change the water pump as it is used to tighten the belt And when you start moving it around, it is prone to leaking.
I want to know how to change the timing belt in a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, and do I need any special tool's (other than mechanic's tool's) Thank You for your help!!
60,000 miles , special tools required
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
Go to a Specialized workshop, don't try to make it on your own, it is very difficult to set the timing properly without special tools
Check the timing belt Answer - My 99 Protege was leaking out coolant slowly out of the water pump. A seal on it had gone bad and the pump needed to be replaced. Haven't had a leak or an overheat since new pmp was installed.
on the cover of the timing belt
