SOURCE: water pump replacement in a 2002 Mazda MPV

The reason is the water pump is driven off the timing belt, extra parts and allot more labor. No the eng does not have to be removed, labor time around 4 hours, parts about, about $125 US for parts, if it is a dealer add $75 US

I have a 1990 Mazda MPV that had a broken timing belt (3.0 ltr.V6) I replaced the tb,water pump,new spark plugs,wires but now it idles really rough and has no power upon acceleration.


You've either not lined up the timing belt properly, or it's an interference engine, which means the valves crashed into the pistons when the belt broke. Check your tb alignment properly, and hope that's all it is.

General Information

Interference Engines
Engines, chain- or belt-driven, can be classified as either free-running or interference, depending on what would happen if the piston-to-valve timing is disrupted. A free-running engine is designed with enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to rotate (pistons still moving) while the camshaft stays in one position (several valves fully open). If this condition occurs normally, no internal engine damage will result. In an interference engine, there is not enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to turn without the camshaft being in time.
An interference engine can suffer extensive internal damage if a timing belt fails. The piston design does not allow clearance for the valve to be fully open and the piston to be at the top of its stroke. If the belt fails, the piston will collide with the valve and will bend or break the valve, damage the piston, and/or bend a connecting rod. When this type of failure occurs, the engine will need to be replaced or disassembled for further internal inspection; either choice costing many times that of replacing the timing belt.


Inspection


NOTE For manufacturer-s recommended service interval, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in this manual.
The average replacement interval for a timing belt is approximately 60,000 miles (96,000 km). If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.

WARNING Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.

Fig. Never bend or twist a timing belt excessively, and do not allow solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, acid or oil to come into contact with the belt
Inspect both sides of the timing belt. Replace the belt with a new one if any of the following conditions exist:


Hardening of the rubber-back side is glossy without resilience and leaves no indentation when pressed with a fingernail Cracks on the rubber backing Cracks or peeling of the canvas backing Cracks on rib root Cracks on belt sides Missing teeth or chunks of teeth Abnormal wear of belt sides-the sides are normal if they are sharp, as if cut by a knife.

Fig. Clean the timing belt before inspection so that imperfections or defects are easier to recognize


0996b43f802095a6.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Inspect the timing belt for damage, such as a broken or missing tooth, which may be due to a damaged pulley

Fig. Back surface worn or cracked from a possible overheated engine or interference with the belt cover

Fig. Side wear from improper installation or a defective pulley plate


0996b43f802095a9.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Worn teeth from excessive belt tension, camshaft or distributor not turning properly, or fluid leaking on the belt

If none of these conditions exist, the belt does not need replacement unless it is at the recommended interval. The belt MUST be replaced at the recommended interval.

WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.

97 mpv died while driving. gets gas and fuel. is it the timing belt?


When you crank the engine does it sound whinny? If it does then yes its the timing belt, the only real way to tell is to remove the distributor cap and crank the engine and see if the rotor of the distributor turns if it turns then its not the timing belt. Here is the thing 1997 Mazda MPV is identified as a interference engine meaning that if the timing belt broke it is MOST likely to do engine valve damage, So you will have to pull the timing belt cover and inspect the T-belt you will know if its broken when you push on the belt and there is no tension on it,

Have a 1997 mazda mpv just quite running. After looking at it when you turn the motor over the dist does not turn. If the timing belt broke could it have bent some valves. It has 207000 mis on it.


Hello handy randy.
The 3.0 liter engine in your Mazda is classed as an interference engine.
Some are more tolerant than others to bending valves.If it happened on the road it is quite possible damage was done unfortunately.
If you have access to a bore scope it is a quick way to have a look to see if damage was done.
Hope you fare out OK.
