Hoo I set the correct timing on a 1993 mazda protege
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
Between 90k and 100k miles..any higher and your risking expensive repairs
Every 90,000 miles per Mazda
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.
transmition with chain.
According the manual book ,mazda proteges 2000 has timing belt and should be replace at 105 K miles .Hope would help .
yes its a timing belt if its the 2.0 L fs engine
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.
IF ITS A 1.8, THEN ITS NEXT TO THE TIMING COVER
