Question about 1997 Mazda 626
I have a very similar issue in trying to set the idle. There are two
idle screws-one on the throttle plate and one in front vertically.
Someone said they are the high and low idle. (?) I understand I’ll have
to adjust the idle first utilizing the jumper from ten to battery
ground. Got it around 800 - 850rpm and check my timing with the same
setup and the timing mark is all the way to the far right of the timing
bar. I loosing up my distributor and rotated from stop to stop with no
movement of the timing mark. Remove the valve cover, top timing cover
and rotated the crankshaft to TDC with #1 plug at dist as well and
noticed the two cam marks are off one teeth. Is there an easy way to
readjust the timing belt without going through the whole timing belt
removal procedure? I feel this must be done first before the idle is
set correctly, but hope that an adjustment for the camshaft timing belt
can be done. Thanks in Advance!!!

Hi,i also have a 1997 maza 626,you it is reccommed that you change the timing belt and the water pump at the same time,if you just change the timeing belt,then the water pump will go and you would have to do it all over again,you would be paying double.The timeing belt is together with the water pump,so you have to change every 70,000miles....Shop around..i got one guy for 500,anthor for420 dollors,it could take one day max two,don;t pay over 500 dollor's for this....

The Only way is to Go through the Whole Procedure of Timing Belt Replacment Sorry to be the bearer of this Bad News but a tooth off is going to cause what you discribe.
