Help changing timing belt

Trying to change my timing belt on my 93 villager and the site I looked at said it should have 133 teeth but the one the store sold me only has 129, can I still use it?

I would get one with the 133 teeth myself I would try Napa or a Ford dealer because when doing something like this it is best to keep it close to original as possible

We think the timing belt went out on my 1999 Mercury Villager. Is it possible to change or did the timing belt ruin the engine if it just stopped?


there are conflicting opinions on this.
some sites are saying that the ford engine used in these is an "inteference" engine and the valves would probably have bent.
others are saying that the mercury engine was modified with a slightly lower power output, but was a "non inteference" engine meaning that there would be no contact between the valves and the pistons, and you could just replace the timing belt. all sites recommend changing the water pump at the same time as the belt.

i would recommend you ring your mercury dealership and ask them as they should be able to tell you conclusively using the chassis and engine numbers. then you can decide the best course of action.
when you have decided, feel free to ask again for more advice and instructions.

sorry i cannot give you a more definate answer

How do i change a timing chain on a 1998 mercury villager


it's a timing belt & I would not change it unless it's broken. It will last 150k easily. It's a feewheeling engine so no damage if it does break.

How to set timming belt,cant find mark for crankshaft 3.0L


Timing belt removed, static timing was not set before removing timing belt.

[Set Static Timing:
No.1 piston is brought up to TDC before removing timing belt.

Cam gear has a punchmark on face of gear, and this mark aligns with one single tooth. There is a matching punchmark on the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover.

Facing the cam gear, the mark is to the upper right. There is an 'egg shape' of the timing belt upper rear cover, in this spot. This punchmark is in that 'egg shape', and is close to a bolt hole. The cam gear mark lines up with the Timing Belt Rear Upper Cover, mark.

The crankshaft gear has a punchmark on the face. It lines up with one single tooth. There is a corresponding punchmark on the lower right side. An alignment mark)

Should be a round punchmark on the face of the crankshaft gear. It lines up with a single tooth. Wipe the gear clean, use a little carb cleaner. (NO flames, or sparks nearby, well ventilated area)

Barring you cannot find the crankshaft mark, find the camshaft alignment marks, make sure they are aligned with the alignment, (Punchmark), on the Timing Upper Rear Cover.

Count the teeth in the timing belt. There should be 133 teeth on the belt.

There is 43 teeth in-between the timing mark of the camshaft, and the timing mark on the crankshaft.

(43 teeth in-between the Right Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark, 43 teeth in-between the Left Side Camshaft mark to crankshaft mark)

There should be 40 teeth in-between the two cam gears.

Timing Belt replacement- two recomendations by mazda manual


they are good for well over 100k. If your engine is freewheeling (that is - if belt does break, no valve will hit the psiton), I would just keep driving it until it breaks or never does.
I am driving my 93 Villager until it breaks. over 150k right now, freewheeling engine.

As for cost, about $400 is my guess.

Ask your dealer service dept if it's freewheeling. check your owner manual too.

1995 Villager Engine light is on


you may have a broken crankshaft snout.This was a common problem on 93-95 Villagers if customer replaced a/c belt and overtightened the belt tensioner.

Did you ecently have the belt changed?
Also, remove distributor cap and rotor ( 1 screw) and slotted plate/ Look for brown dust on optical sensors. If yes clean them and see if van starts. If it starts you will need a new distributor (ebay $200) as the bearing is going.

You should clarify which engine it is, and you can look under the hood near the radiator for the serpentine belt instillation diagram that is on a sticker. Rick
