Timing Belt replacement- two recomendations by mazda manual

How much should I reasonably pay to replace the Timing belt in my 2002 Mazda Protege 5? Note: mazda has two recommendations for changing your timing belt- one is for 105,000 miles the other is 60,000 miles. I tried asking a local mechanic why the change and he was not completely sure himself. His best answer was the climate zones for certain states required a shorter interval, due to wear and tear. Any other answers out there

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.

2002 Mazda Protege timing belt replaced and


Scan PCM for codes. Check that timing is correct again.These DOHC engines are easy to install a tooth out. Start from the top of engine when installing timing belt on this type of engine it's the easiest way to do it. If you took CRANKSHAFT pulley apart make sure the pick up ring behind isn't placed in backwards.

How much should I reasonably pay to replace the Timing belt in my 2002 Mazda Protege 5?


replacement of timing belt $350-$500. aftermarket shops will try to sell you a package containg a belt, water pump, and tensioner pulley. the dealer will just replace the belt, they might recommend to replace the water pump if there are alot of miles on the car, they will also inspect the pulley for wear.

Timing belt replacement


it should be replaced when you start to see wear and tear on the belt or when it breaks (obviously)

I would recomend you take you car to a shop to have it replaced, its very complicated.
