There is no manual adjustment for those overhead cam engines. They use those things called tensioner and idler. If it has about 100,000 miles or so it would better to replace the belt, tensioner, idler, and water pump all at once. Cause if you dont and just replaced the belt only then later the water pump can go bad then you will have to take everything all apart again. The belt can usally last about 100,000 mile before needing replacement. If you are going to replace the belt you will need a tool that will hold the overhead cams before you remove the belt cause the cams can shift (turn) when the belt is removed due to pressure from the valve springs.
adjust the timing to the correct spot then make a mark on the distributer
as an owner of an lx, i have a timing chain which doesn't need replacing
You fix it by replacing it.
I had the same issue with a 1990 Mazda 626 and replacing the timing belt cured it.
The timing belt on a 2002 Mazda 626 should be changed every 100,000 miles. By replacing it before it completely fails, costs repairs can be avoided.
Yes I believe it is a timing chain as i am replacing mine tonite and it was cheap 73.00 Canadian don't forget gasket set
ignition timing is controlled by the electronic control module or the "brain" on distributorless engines. Reysher
You don't. The timing belt should have a spring loaded tensioner which pulls on the belt to adjust tension.
there is a good chance your timing is out or your fuel filter needs replacing
Hi Its located under the timing belt cover......better plan on replacing the timing bet too
