This year Mazda protege does not have a serpentine belt. It has two belts, one for the alternator/water pump, and the other for the power steering and a/c.

Drain the water from your Mazda Protege radiator. Remove the hoses from your radiator. Remove the radiator stabilizing arm. Remove the radiator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new radiator.

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.

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.

In Canada, about $500 to replace both. The parts themselves are probably worth $100 but there's a lot of labour involved.

You have either a blown head gasket or a cracked head

Replacing the 1997 Mazda water pump will cost approximately $300. The water pump will cost about $75 and will require four hours of labor.

You have to take off the serpentine belts so that you can remove the pulley for the water pump. You also have to take off the cam head so that you can get to the timing belt case and remove the plastic splash guards in front of the water pump. Remove the timing belt, then there are 4 bolts attaching the water pump. Remove those bolts and then disconnect the water intake and put your new pump in and replace the timing belt. **Make sure that your timing marks are located where they need to be before replacing the timing belt.**

The water pump is located behind the timing belt inside the timing belt cover. It is also attached to the water neck for the lower radiator hose. If you've never done a T-Belt seek supervision.

Are you running the air conditioner? If the drain line is plugged, it will leak water (condensation) onto the passenger side floor.

The timing belt should be changed every 168,000 kms (105,000 miles) on Mazda Protege 5, not 100,000 kms (60,000 miles). Also these engines DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshaft) is INTERFERENCE motor, which means when that belt skips few teeth or breaks, kiss your valves goodbye. You'll need a new cylinder head, big $$$. Might as well do your water pump at the same time and serpentine belt.

Get a service manual from one of the auto parts stores. You will need to pull off your belts, water pump pulley, timing cover. You might as well replace the timing belt because you will need to remove the timing cover. Also replace your cam seal (if there is one) and your crank seal. Don't forget to replace the thermostat and the serpentine and alternator belts. Note: never add city tap water to dilute antifreeze. The lime will eventually clog your radiator. Use distilled water to dilute or the premix which will last a very long time as antifreeze never goes bad (contrary to popular belief). The only thing you will eventually need to replace every two years is your thermostat (until your water pump fails again).

The water pump is under the timing belt cover. To access the water pump, you must first remove both belts, the water pump pully, and the timing belt cover.

You'll know if you eitherSee a leak coming from under the car orYou find yourself pouring water into your radiator every 2 or so weeks.I had a 1993 Mazda Protege` with this exact problem and once the pump got replaced it ran just fine. Didn't replace the water much after that.

The water pump from Mazda 626 is the same, all part from Mazda 626 work very good in the Kia Credos and Clarus.

if you are flushing the radiator instead of topping it up. you need to buy a gallon of it and dilute it with clean water. read the instruction and follow.

Contaminated fuel (water) or a dirty fuel filter could be possibilities.

One of the components driven by the belt or the tensioner has bearings that are going bad or the unit itself like alternator, power steering pump, or water pump are going bad. If it has a manual tensioner it is possible that it was overtightened as well.

User Avatar

It's run by the same serpentine belt that runs the AC and alternator. The water pump is on the other end of the engine. Changing a serpentine belt is relatively easy. The tensioner pully must be held in the loose position with a 3/8" ratchet and the belt can be yanked out. Follow the diagram on the sticker in the engine bay to install the new one.

Well unfortunately the water pump is in behind the timing belt and the serpentine belt and you have to take all that off to get to the water pump. In the process of doing it now. Not a whole lot of room in there to work on. Once you replace the water pump, then you can put the timing belt back in (make sure timing marks are in place). Then move on to putting serpentine belt back on and all the rest that you had to remove to get to the water pump.

if this is a diesel, it is the easiest water pump to change remove serpentine belt remove water pump. install new pump reinstall serpentine belt pump is on front of engine just left of fan as you stand in front and look at engine

In order to remove the water pump on a 2000 Mazda Millennia, you must first remove the timing belt and the pulley for the water pump. Remove the pump itself by detaching the four bolts that are securing it. Next, replace any gaskets, install the new pump, then the pulley, and then the timing belt.

Remove the serpentine belt then remove the water pump bolts and any attached hoses. It would help to know what year, model, or engine size.
