Mazda protige 1997 overheating

Some restrictive pulley tension usually is what causes a good belt to wear prematurely. Sounds like the water pump may be the culprit all along...(one of 2 belts) Be sure to have the alternator itself tested (free) at most parts stores...could be a combination of concerns. Hope this helps.

Im replacing the timing chaine and I need to know what the timing specs are.

You don't need to know timing specs unless your installing a high performance cam and you have an adjustable timing chain set. You didn't spec the moter and there's more than one that comes in your car 3.9, 4.0,4.7, 5.2, 5.9. Tell what motor your working on and what kind of timing componants your trying to install. and I'll help you more. Stock or replacement stock you just line upp the marks. tell the engine I'll tell you where the marks are. If in doubt the intake valve opens between10 and 3 degrees before top dead center about on any engine some racing engines open the intake as much as 23 degrees before TDC but they don't idel smooth and their drivers don't care either.

What is the timing specs for a 97 toyota celica 2.2 engine

Cylinder #1 at top dead center. Mark on the camshaft gear is straight up,as referenced to engine. Note that the engine tilts to the rear so reference the flat line of the head for 12'oclock positioning of cam timing mark.Distributor rotor points to #1 cylinder. If you have crankshaft pulley off, and can see the timing mark there, it should be straight down with #1 at TDC. After reassembly, start engine and jumper E1 and TE1 in the diagnostics box. This gives a smooth steady idle. Use timing light pointed at crankshaft pulley and hooked to #1 cylinder spark plug wire to check. Loosen distributor's 2 mounting bolts enough to turn it. Adjust as necessary. If you are having trouble seeing the notch on the crank pulley, get a white paint pen to increase it's visibility. Reference the rotating pulley mark to the stationary mark on the lower timing belt cover.

Timing settings

you should have timing marks that are lined up on your engine. You have your crank to line up at a certain point as well as the two cams. I don't know off the top of my head where these might be for this car but you can find it in a Haynes or Chilton manual if you so desire to also learn more about your overall car and take care of this or i can find these specs and send them your way. Up to you?
