re-install belt, lining up the timing marks, crank to TDC #1 cylinder, cma pulleys have marks on them, line them up to the index marks as well. If you have a drive wheel in the air, you can pop the car into 5th gear (make sure it's chocked!) and rotate the wheel to turn the engine for alignment, etc. You can put a wrench/socket on the cam bolt to align it as well.

SOURCE: 98 Mazda 626 overheating. Blew off hose and was

Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem.

As a basic explanation, the thermostat is the device which separates the hot coolant in the engine block from the cool coolant in your radiator. If it gets stuck closed, your radiator coolant will remain at near room temperature, while the coolant in your block (which is what your gauge reads) does not circulate and will skyrocket in temperature.

SOURCE: 91 mazda 626 erractic idle surge when engine is cold

My '91 626 did the same thing. I tested the throttle position sensor, and it was good so that wasn't it. The other likely culprit is the Idle Speed Control valve, or Idle Air Control valve, which is a $500 part new (more than I paid for the whole car). I pulled one off a 626 at the salvage yard and got it for 3 bucks, put it on (it's an easy DIY, just 4 philips screws holding it to the intake manifold), however I can't be sure that solved the problem, since I haven't run the car much since then. It would seem the most likely cause, tho, and a cheap fix if you go used. Other possibilities: O2 sensor or Mass Air Flow sensor?

Why does my 1997 mazda 626 die after I rev on the engine once. There check engine light is not on


I have not had a Mazda but in cars I have had it seem to be something which reminds me of timing belt which has slipped a tooth. If your car has a timing belt and has not been changed at the recommended mileage it would be something to check into. Most of my vehicles have been GM and I have had to change 3 timing belt all before 65,000 miles. It never did any damage to my engine but as I understand foreign cars have closer tolerances and can damage valves and pistons. I am sorry I can't be of more help. If your car has not lost any power other than what you have stated it is probably not the timing belt.

I have a 91 626 mazda, timeing belt broke and the water pump was leaking...so i left it in the garage,the car was not worked on unitl ten months later,i changed the timeing belt and water pump,also new...


Check the ECM for codes. Cam or crank sensors will cause a no start. Also there should have been a compression and/or leak down test performed on the engine before the belt was replaced. This is done to make sure that the pistons didn't bend the valves. Bent valves will cause a nostart because of no compression. First check for codes then do a compression test before you replace anything. Let me know

Hello.. i alredy change my timming belt but when it is done my engine shaking.. so what is the problem? can someone help pls..


Are you replacing the belt because it broke, or just routine maintenance? If you replaced it because it broke, you probably have bent valves. When a belt breaks, the cam(s) stops turning, but the pistons keep going up and down a few times before the engine stops completely. The pistons will hit the valves that were open at the time the belt broke and bend them. If this is the case, the heads must be pulled off and repaired.

Timing belt problem


No,the 1996 Mazda 626 is not a interfearance engine, meaning that the valves will not hit the pistons if the belt breaks while underway but the engine will not run untill the belt is replaced.
