Check for damage /wire connections to the crank shaft position sensor near the harmonic balancer pulley. Check the air gap of the sensor

    Thanks Bill. The Tribute started but broke 2 exhaust valves in the process. I'm replacing all valves then reset them all.

SOURCE: cant get the crankshaft pulley off

It's most likely right hand thread. You will have to use a large breaker bar to get enought leverage to remove this nut. Or you can use what ever you have and place a steel pipe on the end of it for extra leverage. If it doesn't budge, you may have to soak it in penetrating oil, and use an impact wrench. Make sure you remove the large washer under the nut "before" you remove pulley.

Hello there :
I would say the most common problem is a clogged fuel filter. Make sure you follow your manufacturers recommendations as to when you should change the fuel filter. This information should be in your owners manual. Symptoms include sputtering at high speeds or engine not starting at all. Always check the ignition system first, if that's ok then the next suspect is the fuel filter.
Next most common problem is the fuel pump failing. Most modern electric fuel pumps can be heard when you turn the key on. If you don't hear the pump running and your car will not start, it could be your fuel pump. The first thing a mechanic will check is the relay which sends power to the pump. If this is operating correctly then the pump will have to be replaced.
Last but not least is dirty injectors. While the fuel filter does a good job of filtering the fuel, it's not perfect. Over time deposits and tiny particles lodge themselves in the injectors. This can clog and injector and prevent it from delivering the fuel the engine needs. It can also cause an injector to stick open and send too much fuel into the engine. A regular addition of fuel system cleaner like STP Injector Cleaner, or Techtron fuel system cleaner can help keep your injectors clean. Most gas stations, department stores and all automotive parts stores will have a good cleaner available. Add it to your empty tank right before you fill up and it will clean as you drive. I recommend doing this every 3 months to keep your injectors performing like new. Mechanics also offer a cleaning service where they actually disconnect the fuel line and flush cleaner through the engine. This is only necessary when you let your injectors get to a point where they can not be cleaned by a store-bought product. Regular use of a good in-tank cleaner will keep you from having to pay for this service. Where do you buy your gas?
Believe it, or not, it can make a difference. Always buy from a well know national brand service station. Gas stations which are not affiliated with one brand of gas tend to get whatever is left at the end of the day from the delivery truck. One day them might get Texaco, and Exxon another. Also water mixed with gas will cause problems with your engine. The engine will not run right, plus the water will promote rust in the fuel system. I have experienced this when I purchased gas at some no-name gas stations. Your car will feel sluggish and sometimes refuse to run if there is enough water in the gas.
Octane rating tip !!!!
Putting super in the tank will not get you any more performance or gas mileage unless specifically recommended by your cars manufacturer. If your owners manual says put in 87 octane...... DO IT. You are throwing money out the window if you are filling up on Super or Premium and you only need Regular.
Hope this is very helpful for you '
Best regards Michael

Trying to find out where the crankshaft sensor is located on Mazda Tribute 2002? Need to change it


2004 Mazda tribute 2.0l manual transmission cranks position sensor tip worn / rubbing. p0351, p0352, p0500, p0320 codes. I have a 2004 Mazda tribute with 2.0l 4 cylinder. 140,000 miles. First problem was it would not start but I could hear the fuel pump run and the engine cranked over. I checked for spark and all four plugs had no spark. p0351, p0352, p0500, and p0320 codes displayed.
I have 12 volts at coil. I decided to remove and inspect crank sensor on the transmission side of the engine ( on engine below thermostat housing bolted to engine block) once i removed it i noticed the tip of the sensor was broken, yes, broken. so I knew i found the problem.
I put a new crank sensor in and the car started but ran for 1 hour idling as if a cylinder was not firing. Then it would not start ever again. I removed my brand new replacement sensor to find the tip was rubbed off enough to see the inside metal. i think it could be a possible warped flywheel but I am having trouble finding diagrams of the excitation part of how the crank position sensor works.
I believe the flywheel has holes that excite the sensor. The tribute does move and clutch works for the hour I had it running, so the manual Trans does work as well as the clutch.

How to aliane marks on cam shaft pulley on mazda protege 2002


1. Remove all spark plugs so that the crank shaft could be rotated easily.
2. Rotate the crankshaft to align the timing mark of the crankshaft gear with the index mark on the engine cover.
3.Rotate the crankshaft +/- 30 degrees to ensure that the valve could not hit the pistons when aligning the camshaft gears.
4. Align the camshafts as described below.
5. Align the crankshaft timing gear with the index mark.
6. Loose and lock the timing bearing at its farther position. Install a timing belt starting from the crankshaft gear, then right cam, then left cam, and at last the timing bearing.
7. Press and hold the timing belt to keep it firm on the gears and loosen the timing bearing. It will get adjusted by itself with the help of spring attached to it. Do not put extra force on the bearing to adjust it more.
8. Confirm the timing marks.

How to remove and change crank shaft pulley on 2001 mazda 626


You have to partially unscrew the bolt in the center, that's holding the pulley to the crankshaft. Then, you have to use a puller to safely pull, without damaging, the pulley off the crankshaft. When it gets pulled away, off the crankshaft, remove the puller, unbolt the center bolt all the way and take the pulley out.
