2000 mazda 626 6 cyl replacing water pump, of

2000 mazda 626 6 cyl replacing water pump, of course had to take out timing belt so ok here we go. put everything back in its place and i mean TDC. All my marks lined up and ready to go. I even turned it over to revolutions and still came up TDC. Wonderful right, wrong. Closed everything up, took it for a test drive and oops something jumped. Took it apart again to find the timing belt jumped a tooth. Hmmm? The camshaft pulleys seem to stay in place but the crank pulley/harmonic balancer seems to have jumped a tooth.Hmmm? everything is on tight tensioner is good, belt is new so what in the mechanical world is going on? On the test drive loss of power and backfiring in the airbox. the car already had a misfire pulled code P01409, could a misfire in the engine cause the timing belt to jump? Out of ideas just really fustrated. Help

YES! Straighten out the T belt & look for any misfires. If u have any spring loaded pulleys or tensioners, REPLACE THEM. Did U have a misfire before u did the work?

SOURCE: 1995 Chrysler 3.5 liter timing issue-what indicates the belt tensioner needs replacement?

hello ive read you questions and the other experts answers and they all have good points i just wanted to give you my point of view
this belt tensioner is to be locked down so it doesnt move once the initial adjustment is made. what i like to do is turn the crankshaft by hand to pull tight the belt on the non tensioner side and this is when i lock down the tensioner .

and yes when a car like this comes in we alway recomend water pump, tensioner , and any other idler pulleys that each vehicle may need also we take care of any oil leaks at the same time . oil or antifreeze getting on the belt will deminish the belt life.
and on your question on the cam brgs being loose , the cam is the length of the engine and it wont move enough to cause this kind of problem you would see a large oil leak first.

just a note
we do alot of customer cars that families take on vacation, and i dont want to be the one to ruin someones vacation by trying to save a buck. and when you are paying labor to have a belt replaced you expect it to reliable again.
let me know if i can help with anything else

SOURCE: V groove pulley slipped off of harmonic balancer of 1999 Grand Am

After checking around, I decided to replace the harmonic balancer. I had a repair shop fix it for me and I think they over charged for the part. But, at least I'm on the road again. This Grand Am has 227,000 miles and still runs pretty good.

SOURCE: 1996 timing belt changed, lined up all the marks,

Hi my name is juan and lets try to solve this it is possible that when you rotated the camshaft the distributor last his position and this is why it won't start it may not be the problem but this happens a lot so open your distributor and aline up your marks on camshaft and the crankshaft then make sure the distributor is pointing near the #1 spark plug if is opposite give it a 1 more turn to the crankshaft line up your marks again and se what happens #1 spark plug is the closets to the front part of the engine on 4cil

2000 mazda 626 driving down highway then just dies.. timing belt or fuel pump/filter?


By you saying the engine "Dies" I am going to assume it restarts.
If the timing belt failed the engine would not start again until the belt was replaced.
So it could be a fuel or electrical problem.

The alternator belt keeps breaking on a 2000 mazda 626 it has been replaced 4 times and all of the mechanics say they cannot find any prolbems no bearing prolbems no pulley misalligment


What they mean is there is no obvious problems. What else runs off that belt? Check for misalignment there. What makes it break? Does it happen after a long trip ( 2 hrs. highway driving) or at timed intervals ( every month, 6wks)?
Carefully check all the pulley's for sharp edges or bump outs into the belt. If you find anything use a small file and smooth them out. They can cut or pinch your belt and weaken it so it breaks over time.
Check the pulley alignment with the engine running where you can see all the pulleys and belts at the same time. This might mean crawling under the car. Vary the engine speed while you watch and take it up to cruising speed. You are looking for something to change, i.e a pulley to start wobbling. It could be a mounting bracket that bends at higher revs that needs to be replaced or strengthened.
Hope this helps.

How do you replace the water pump on a 2002 mazda 626 4cyl? does it interact with the timing belt?


hi from uk the 626 water pump is not driven by timing belt but by another drive belt so easy to change after removal of under wing cover to access /see pump b4 you remove drive belt would advise you to slacken off the water pump pully 1st while it is held by drive belt to prevent turning ? then with belt off /pully removed pump is more accessable hope this helps?

Where is the water pump mazda 626 1992 GE


Its under the timing belt cover, driven by the timing belt. Replace the timing belt when you replace the pump. While its apart, replace the cam and crank oil seals, and check the bearing for the tensioner, it will need to be replaced also.

How do you replace a serpentine belt on a mazda 626


A 626 has two belts. One drives the power steering and water pump (rear belt in 6 cyl) and other front belt drives the a/c and alternator. On the 4 cyl, the front belt drives the power steering and the a/c, and the rear belt drives the water pump and the alternator. All of these are easy to change.

1994 4 door mazda 626 need to locate where the water pump is on this car


The water pump is located at the front of the engine ( where the timing belt is) To replace it you will need to remove the timing belt covers and the belt. If you have not tackled this sort of problem before i would recommend you purchase a workshop manual ( Haynes or similar) and that will show you the correct way to do it. Best of luck.

Timing belt/waterpump


usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.
