This is a timely thing to do first off.This requires some mechanical KNOW HOW to do.Things to expect draining coolant to replace the water pump,replace the gasket where the heater core piping comes into the pump from the side of the pump(recommend) at the lower radiator hose.You have to align the camshaft mark and crankshaft marks to top dead center (easy to do with one or two spark plugs removed).The fan shroud and fan clutch needs to be removed,along with the upper and lower timing belt cover.I suggest buying a timing belt kit,which will include a new belt,new tensioner,new pulley.The water pump comes with the pump,and gasket and oring.You would have to make a gasket at the pump housing at the block where the lower radiator hose hooks up and ties into the pipe for the heater core piping/intake.Unless your very mechanically inclined take it to a shop.I could go on forever on the what to do and what not to do being I have done this job myself jan2010!It was not to hard for me however it is too much information to describe here and a manaul helps but,will not be specific on how to get the belt back on with some TLC and all the other little oddities.

There is no timing belt in that engine. It has a timing chain.

where is fuel gauge and how to replaced for a 1986 Mazda pick up B2000 please let me know thank you

You will need to pick out the right kind of belt. Then you can take out the old belt before putting in the new one.

Timing belt replacement is a pretty big job. I'd go to the parts store and pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual.

''no ,it is an interference engine'' Wrong! Not even one mx-3 with 1.8 v6 engine have an interference engine! Your belt may slip or even split in half, no harm will be done to engine- valves will not be bent. Checked on my own experience 2x. If the timing belt slips, you may not be able to start you car , or it may work like machine gun(firing sounds)- very rough idle, not able to pick up speed e.t.c (depends on how many ''teeth'' of timing belt have slipped).

The Mazda B2200 truck body did not change much, if at all between 1986 and 1993. There should be no differences in the shape of the engine compartment. -Kyrasis6 Owner of

You will have to remove your timing belt cover as well as you're harmonic ballancer. I would recommend changing the timing belt while your at it. It would be a good idea to pick up a repair book when you get you're parts.

No, it's not OK. If it really is a timing belt, the car won't run w/o it. If it's "only" a drive belt for the water pump, the engine is likely to quickly overheat w/o it.

you dont have strap on light cars just on pick-up's and big trucks

I recently replaced the timing chain on my 1994 Toyota pick-up. That cost me ~$800 parts/labor.

remove timing cover remove oil pan and oil pick up pull timing belt and replace oil pump and gasket. reinstall

You must change it every 60,000 miles. Warning: This is an interference engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have very expensive internal engine damage.

This is a fairly major job. I highly recommend that you pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual to guide you through the procedure.

The k24t motor has a chain. That is the 2.4 litre, 4 cylinder motor. From what I remember - The V6 is also a chain.

It would be difficult to list the details involved in changing the timing belt. Your best bet would be to purchase a manual (about $11 - $14 at auto parts store) or see if there may be one available at your local public library for checkout. I use Haynes Repair Manual #36071, 1993-2005 Ford Ranger Pick-ups (also includes 1994-2005 Mazda B Series pickups).

if you pop ur hood you should see a rotating belt guide and on that belt rotation guide you should see a timing spec and if you cant see it move the guide and you should and directly above that is the other spec but if you dont know what they are, they are for firing your piston a evenly timed rates so you can get more or better proformance from you r pick up such as power and milage

It is connected to the front of the crankshaft, in the area behind the timing belt. There is an oil pick-up in the oil pan at the bottom of the engine, and a tube connects the pick up to the oil pump.
