There is timing marks on the cam sprockets and on the crank pulley just line these up. Place your timing belt on and your good. you can stop by a local vectra dealer for a diagram of the marks and where they go.

SOURCE: timing belt setting and my car iddle are out of form mazda etude

Your camshaft and crankshaft pulleys have to be properly aligned upon installation of the timing belt. The cogs on the belt, should fit precisely with the teeth of the pulleys. Your # 1 engine cylinder should be moved to "Top Dead Center" before installing the belt. This means no compression once the top of the piston cylinder reaches the top of the chamber.

SOURCE: removed distributor to change head gasket, now timing is way off

On some 4.3 engines, when the timing marks line up, the #4 cylinder is the TDC. So you may have to point your distributor to #4. And look at your cap, sometimes, where the #4 wire joins the cap, the wire "inside" the cap may run to the other side of the cap, so look inside to see exactly where your rotor should be pointing.

All i can think of is the thermostat is not opening. or you may have a clog somewhere preventing the flow. Check the T-stat and hoses and radiator ( for clogs) Good luck

sea foam is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater,particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter that will just clogg an block the engine. your head gasket is gone you will need to replace the head gasket an probably flush the engine too... Hope this helps

To change the cylinder head gaskets do you need to take the whole engine apart?


not the whole engine just the top end, you will need a manual, take the head to a shop for inspection, new bolts and gasket kit,yu will need a torque wrench and a degree meter along with the usuall assortment of tools, good idea to replace the timing belt

Where is timing marks located for r2 mazda diesel


Well, just remember a head gasket that fails is a victim, and not a cause. Something else is not right, like head warped. you need to find that issue or gasket will fail again real soon.
