Question about 2000 Mazda MPV

Mazda Premacy Timing Belt Change

I recently had the timing belt changed on a 2000 premacy before travelling further into Europe. After 500 miles I discovered an oil leak and brought the car to a local mechanic. He informed me that the oil seals should have been changed at the same time as the timing belt, which hadn't been done. As a result, I have had to get the seals changed and a new timing belt kit installed. The mechanic that originally changed the timing belt now says that he did his job fine and that the oil seals are nothing to do with changing the timing belt and its just bad luck. Who's right?

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.

The Front Oil Seal must be replaced when the Timing Belt/Chain is replaced. It is located behind the Crankshaft Pulley on the Crankshaft.

Hi , My premacy 2001 had never had a replacement "cam Belt" It has 135,000KM on the clock and I plan to travel abroad soon Should I have the work done also there is no indication of a problem...

If your getting ready to take the vehicle over seas I would say yes, have the timing belt replaced now while you are here since it cost a lot more in Europe and you may not even be able to get it done in some other areas. The recommended check replacement interval is 100,000 to 150,000 miles so you aren't far off anyway.

What are the settings for a mazda premacy timing belt?

If you are not too mech minded I would suggest you leave the timing belt to the experts. Also I could not describe this procedure in this forum as it would take considerable time. You can download car manuals off the net also.
