Question about 1988 Mazda 323 Hatchback
Replaced both belts and now it is worse than before. It stops after ca. 30 seconds after I started the car.
It sounds like a the tensioner is going bad or your water pump bushing is at it's end. A backyard way to check is to remove your belts and rotate all the accesory pulleys by hand and feel for roughness. Try to move the pulley laterally to feel for play in the sideways motion. If there is any of the above, you have found your problem.
