Question about 1997 Mazda MPV
Did you install a new bushing with the tensioner? There is a bulletin that talks about brass powder on the old tensioner. If there is, install bushing no#JF01-12-754. It sounds like you put new timing belt tensioner and belt, but without the spacer, it could cause problems.

The alternator needs to be spaced in or out until the pulley is in line with the rest of your pulley's. They may have dropped or lost spacers when they changed it. You can use washers to do this or make slight bends to the mounting brackets if necessary. When it is right the belt will look straight with no visible bends. Hope this helps.
