    I am putting a timing belt on my 1999 mazda protege 1.6 .My Hayes repair manual is a bit vague on the timing marks. Do you have a photo for this particular model? The last expert was no help at all.He gave me basic information for timing most vehicles. I would like a photo of this exact year make and model if possible or a Mazda expert who knows this particular car.

    Thanks for your help. Just to double check my book has so many variations. You are quoting specs specificly for a 99 Protege with a 1.6?

Okay this one is real easy. look at the camshaft gears and the back gear has an "I" on it and the front one has an "E" on it. when those are facing straight up look at the closest point in between the cam gears and you will see two sets of notches and the top set at the closest points of the two cam gears will face each other the left cam at 3 o;clock and the right one at 9 o;clock.

now the crank is also straight up and there a pointer for 12 o clock position. nice and straight forward procedure.

sorry i can't copy and paste the stuff out of my aldata so i can't send the picture but i can help and explain more if you didn't understand anything! let me know if you need more help.

good luck

The crank should have a mark maybe at 12 oclock there should be some kind of mark on the pulley and a mark or arrow on the engine. now the cam gear will have a dowel pin, this should be at 12 o clock put it at 12 oclock then look at the gear for a mark and a mark on the head that will match up. now put the belt on, and follow the book on how to properly tension the belt, after you are done, turn the engine 2 revolutions and verify that the timing marks are RIGHT ON.,

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.

2000 mazda protege correct timing mark alignment


Presuming the timing belt has not been removed or has skipped.
If the belt is removed or skipped this is an interference engine, valves and or pistons could be damaged by turning crankshaft, seek professional help.
Turn crankshaft clockwise and align timing marks (see jpg).
Face the marks (I) and (E) of the camshaft straight up, then align the timing marks with the horizontal surface on the cylinder head.
Pulley boss position pin on the crankshaft should be facing straight up.

This is only the beginning of an involved process, 3 pages in shop manual. I recommend getting a manual, many available on line. one typical Mazda 323 Protege Repair Manual 1990 2003
insure that the manual you get has info on your engine.

You have to align the timing marks on the timing gears. You should go to a parts store and purchase a haynes repair manual they cost about fifteen dollars and are very helpfull.
