Timing chain

If you have a double overhead cam V-8, there were recalls on this design. Rather than the timing chain, a part called a "Cam Phaser" is usually the problem. I would read articles about the Phaser and see the solutions. Even the shortcut is an expensive fix with the long method costing well over $2000.

Have taken off water pumped might have knocked a 91 mazda protege out of time ,how do i find engine marks to reset the timming

Hello- Yes, you have to remove the timing belt in order to remove the water pump. If the belt was just placed back on the pulley without setting the timing marks, then the engine is out of time. There were two engine types that your Mazda could have been equiped with; a single overhead cam or a double overhead cam (you did not mention which). In any case, do not try to start the engine anymore, you could damage the valves due to piston to valve clearence caused by the engine to be out of time. Comment back with the engine type and/or if more assistance is needed.

How do I change the valve cover gasket?

I just changed mine two days ago.I have a 1994 Protege DX and the VIN number says it's a DOHC. It does have two overhead cams BUT the value gasket is for the SOHC. My gasket has 6 holes.... just double check.

Simply loosen the six 10mm bolts and don't forget the 10mm bolt left side holding the timing belt cover in place. Disconnect the two rubber hoses and each end of the valve cover. I used a small screw driver to try out the old gasket. reverse process.

Does it have a timing chain or a timing belt

In 1997 the Sunfire used 2 different engines.
A 2.4 overhead cam or a 2.2 overhead valve engine.
Both use a timing chain setup.
Hope this helps you along.
Best of the season to you.
