Question about 2002 Mazda MPV
I had my timing chain replaced. I took it back to the mechanic because of irregular vibration when at idle with car in Drive and especially when the AC is ON. He drove the Van lifted hood and He said the motor mounts need to be replaced. The Van was fine before the work was done and vibrated after the work was done. I think it may be an incorrect timing belt replacement. Can they check timing belt without having to take all the parts back out again? What to do now?
I would guess all your motor & transaxle mounts
need replacing on a 2002. I would do them all
if it was mine
The timing belt would have to be looked at with
a camera, that most shops don't likely have,someday
they will realize they need every new tool out there.
They can look at scan tool data & use an oscilloscope
to check cam & crank positions.
Can't go by the A/C being on ,as it loads the engine
& cycles on & off & pulls the idle down,the computer
should be able to adjust that, but it takes time if your
braking quickly etc.
Shop do a poor job of selling services because no
trust what they say
I would know you mounts are gone when I saw a 11
year old car pull on to the lot
Now try & sell that & a need timing belt together
You would be considered dishonest & accused
of ripping off the customer,which is as not the case.
You can find a shopping list of worn & neglected parts
on all vehicles

teh resaon he wants to replace your water pump is because it runs off of your timing belt.and if it should fail later down the road after belt replacement.then you will be looking at another big expense having the same job done twice.i would rcomend you do get the waterpump replaced also.as for you other problem im not sure. samboiv

have you had the catalytic converter checked at the local exhaust shop? try that first. is the truck a 4wd? time to start checking the ujoints. do a compression check on all cylinders and see if there is a major drop in that hole that is misfiring. let me know what you come up with.
