Question about 1997 Mazda Millenia

Open Question

Does my 1997 mazda capella 2L have a interferance head?

I have just had the crank sencer replaced on my mazda and it is sill running badly. I have noticed that the cam belt is cracked and that one of the cams has slipped about 2 teeth and the other about 10 teeth. Will this have bent the valves? I have been told that there are two types of heads, interferance and non interferance, Do you know what mazda capella's heads are?

The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck jerry1938@hotmail.com

Have 97 mazda capella gf-gfer fi 2.0 4wd and I think it has a fs-ze head not a fs-de head its hard to start, doesn't idle right, would that be the head or would the head be fine & be some thing else....


Best thing to do is if you have a check engine light on is run a scan and see what codes come up..If no check lights on than could be your battery or a coroded battery cable,or both,,doent idle right? Should be a check engine light on,,,,,,Auto Zone parts will run a scan for free and tell whats wrong and read the codes for you.

Timming belt shreded, do you think hurt anythig ,head valves ect. how mutch to fix 1997mazda millenia


Hi More than likely, most of the Mazda range are identified as an interference, in other words when the timing belt breaks or slips the pistons will hit the valves, my advice change the belt and then compression test the cylinders before removing the head just in case god smiled on you,

P1391 is a timing referance code, your timing is crucial to engine operation, this can be caused by the crank and or cam position sencer. If you changed these and the problem still exists, maybe you got ahead of yourself. These two (2) sencers run in conjuntion with each other, if one is out of whack for any length of time, The ECU will trip and pretty much say to itself, The Timing chain is broken, fix me! Also note that these sensers are typacaly LOW FAIL items. So on especially vehicles with the 2.5Ltr. V6, If you suspect a sencer is bad and you change it, might be a good idea to change both sencers and the timing belt since like all belts it may be streching.

ABS, Traction control and handbrake light is on. Car was running on 3 cylinders previous to the lights coming on. 1999 Mazda SP20 Familia (323)


I have a Mazda Capella (626) 1998 and had similar problem other than it was running on 4 cylinders and the hand brake light was not on and the ANSWER was a speed sensor which is to do with ABS system needed replacing. You can determine which one is broken by putting volt meter over each of them.
