Question about 2000 Mazda MPV
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.
