Are you asking where the throw out bearing is located?
If so, removal of your transmission is necessary to access it. It will be on your input shaft of your tranny behind your clutch. Its on the other side of your clutch fork.

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.

Timing Belt, Sprockets & Front Cover Removal & Installation Timing belt To Remove:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the exhaust side spark plugs, outer timing belt cover, and crankshaft pulley.
  3. Turn the crankshaft until the number one piston is at top dead center (TDC). CAUTION
    The camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097) can be damaged when trying to relieve belt tension if you attempt to remove the belt without first loosening both the timing belt tensioner adjusting bolt and the spring pivot bolt.
  4. Loosen the timing belt spring pivot bolt, but do not remove it at this point in the procedure.
  5. Loosen the adjusting bolt slowly and release the spring tension.
  6. Turn the tensioner with the camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097), against the spring pressure, clockwise to the farthest position.
  7. While holding it in this position, tighten the adjusting bolt to hold the tensioner away from the belt.
  8. Remove the timing belt.
To Install:
  1. Be certain that on piston number one, the crankshaft is at TDC with the crankshaft keyway pointing straight up and the circle on the crankshaft sprocket lined up with the notch on the engine front cover.
  2. Line up the timing marks.
  3. Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket going counterclockwise over the oil pump sprocket and over the camshaft sprocket.
  4. Loosen the bolt allowing the tensioner pulley to press against the timing belt. NOTE: The timing belt tensioner should not be tightened or the belt tension will not be evenly distributed over the whole belt.
  5. Turn the crankshaft two revolutions clockwise. Next, slowly bring the crank to the number one position firing position with the keyway on the crank facing up. The dot on the crankshaft gear is lined up with the notch on the front cover.
  6. Check the timing mark alignment again. If necessary, repeat the procedure.
  7. Tighten the bolts. Torque the pivot bolt to 30-40 ft-lb (40-55 Nm). Torque the adjustment/locking bolt to 26-33 ft-lb (35-45 Nm).
  8. Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolt. Torque to 93-121 ft-lb (125-165 Nm).
  9. Install the outer timing belt cover and tighten the bolt. Torque to 70-106 in-lb (8-12 Nm).
  10. Install the exhaust side spark plugs.
Sprockets To Remove:
  1. Remove the timing belt.
  2. Install the camshaft sprocket holding/removing tool (303-098) onto the sprocket.
  3. Remove the camshaft sprocket.
To Install:
  1. Place the key and camshaft sprocket on the shaft.
  2. Install the camshaft sprocket holding/removing tool (303-098) onto the camshaft sprocket and tighten the bolt. Torque to 52-70 ft-lb (70-95 Nm).
  3. Remove the tool then install the timing belt.
Outer Cover To Remove:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the fan shroud.
  4. Loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley, but do not remove them at this point in the procedure.
  5. Remove the drive belt, the water pump pulley, and the fan and clutch assembly.
  6. Recover the refrigerant from the A/C system.
  7. Disconnect the A/C wiring connector.
  8. Remove the A/C compressor from the mounting bracket then remove the A/C mounting bracket with the power steering pump still attached.
  9. Remove the outer timing belt cover.
To Install:
  1. Install the outer timing belt cover. Torque to 70-106 in-lb (8-12 Nm).
  2. Install the A/C mounting bracket with the power steering pump still attached. Torque the M10 bolts and stud to 35 ft-lb (48 Nm) and torque the M8 bolt to 18 ft-lb (25 Nm).
  3. Install the A/C compressor to the mounting bracket. Torque to 16-20 ft-lb (21-28 Nm).
  4. Connect the A/C wiring connector.
  5. Refill the refrigerant into the A/C system.
  6. Install the fan and clutch assembly, the water pump pulley, and the drive belt.
  7. Tighten the bolts on the water pump pulley. Torque to 13-17 ft-lb (17-23 Nm).
  8. Install the fan shroud. Torque to 54-70 in-lb (6-8 Nm).

What would cause my 86 mazda b2000 to not start or even turn over, it's got a new starter on it & I've been told it could be an electrical problem, when I try to start it I can hear a click noise


If the battery is in good shape with a full charge, and all that happens is a click when trying to start, suspect a battery cable issue. Make sure the cables are clean and tight at the battery as well a tight at the starter. Make sure the ground cable from the battery to the engine is clean and tight supplying a good ground as well

Replace starter. Car has been running fine for last 2 weeks, however today car won't start. Battery ok. What's the likely problem?


Ronald,
When you replaced the starter, I assume you did disconnect the battery. Did you clean the posts before putting your battery cable back on? I replaced my battery a couple of months ago and did not clean them and my van ran fine for several days and then one day would not start. Cleaned the posts and cable ends and everything worked fine. Just a thought. Hope this helps!

Car won't start in the morning when it's cold. It will only start in afternoon. Battery is good.


I agree with the other poster that you should have your battery tested, but if it tests ok, then follow along......

When it does not start, does the engine at least crank? If no, then try starting with the shifter in "n" If it now starts, then you need a shift inhibitor (neutral safety switch) along with a new shift lever on the transmission, Mazda has a bulletin for this. If it still does not crank, then it could be corrosion on the starter signal wire (Mazda has a bulletin for this too). Cut and splice on the service replacement connector and polish the starter terminal with a piece of "Scotchbright."

If the engine cranks and doesn't start, tow it somewhere because it will not be something easy. It could be a crank / cam sensor, or the timing could be shifted. These things are almost never "crank / no start."

99 Mazda 626 2.0 changed starter 3x's. No start


Well it could be an engine problem, or a bad connection with one of the battery cables. The engine would require more voltage to crank when it is hot, but not that much.
You might want to have someone check the engine to see how much drag is has when hot, by turning the crank by hand.

Have the battery tested and then if it passes have a starter draw test run as well. Also make sure the battery cables are in good condition and clean and free of corrosion and tight to the posts.

solenoid to the starter is doing the clicking noise. run a jumper cable from the positive end of the battery to the starter cable. your cable can be shorted out from being disconnected by being loose for awhile. corrosion sets in and makes it faulty forever

Where is the auto starter?


when you replaced the starter did you ensure the battery cables and terminals were clean? if not driving it that way may have hampered your alternator's ability to properly charge your new battery. i would make sure they were clean and tight then charge the battery and try again. the starter is located on the driver side of the engine on the bottom. disconnect your battery negative terminal before removing the starter.
