I have a 99 mazda truck with the 2.3 change timing belt and will not start. All timing marks are inline. Is it possible to be 180 degrees off on the cam?? please help


I am showing a 2.5 engine in a Mazda truck, but its generally the same as a 2.3.
Its not supposed to be an interference engine, so no damage should have occured when the belt broke. Its possible the cam gear is 180 degrees off, but if the marks are lined up by the book it should be correct. Its very possible the marks are a few teeth off since the cam gear can move when the tensioner is released.
Checking compression on all 4 cylinders will tell you if the valves are in the right place.

I have fire and compression and fuel car wont start but only backfires ive timed it right on the marks can u help me? i also need the wiring for the crankshaft position sensor.


if you have spark and fuel in the cylinders then it should start make sure the firing order is correct and you mentioned the timing marks so you probably did a timing belt you may still be 180 off , if the belt broke and its an over head valve you may have squashed the valves tring to start it with a broken timing belt

2000 hyundai accent. car ruan great right up to the point of the timing belt breaking.


It could be off 180, if making a bad knocking sound then yes piston is probibly out but turn ur distributor rodar 180 degrees or even 360 because u may be on your compression stroke when u need to be on exsaust. Double check your marks on belt might be off a tooth.

My timing belt broke and i replace it when re assembling everything i ended up 180 out and fixed that problem and now my car wont start any suggestions


A broken timing belt can damage engine components. Check the head for bent valves or anything else that looks out of order. Make sure that the timing it set properly. If you're still having problems try looking for a re-manufactured head or a used. You should be able to get a good deal on eBay.

I think my timing belt slipped. It broke on the highway i had it towed home and changed the belt and water pump. When I put it all back together it wouldn't start. I checked the timing mark on the crank...


You installed the belt with the crankshaft 180 degrees out of place. It is very unlikely that the belt slipped, unless there is internal damage in the engine.

We have replaced timming belt but cant get it to start


Double check and make sure you are set to #1 TDC then verify you have the timing marks aligned correctly. This happens a lot when the timing marks slip and the vehicle is 90 to 100 degrees out of time. If it were 180 degrees out it would start but run very rough. If you replaced the timing belt because it broke while the engine was running do a compression check or connect a small compressor to a line you can screw into the the spark plug holes and see if you have any compression or in 2 or more cylinders have no compression. If this test is true your valves are bent and you will have to have the head rebuilt.

Timing belt broke,does this car have a free floating engine


I'm not sure what you mean by "a free floating engine".
If your engine still runs you most likely broke the serpintine belt not the timing belt.
If you broke your timing belt you need to have your engine check over carefully. When the timing belt breaks the valve stop moving but the pistons keep going for a few revolutions. This usually ends up damaging your valves and/or your pistons. On rare occassions it can sometimes even damage the
head(s) or block.
DO NOT TRY TO START THE ENGINE BEFORE IT'S REPAIRED, THIS WILL RESULT IN MORE DAMAGE!
If you're planning on fixing this yourself you need to pay careful attention to the timing, you can have the timing marks perfectly aligned and still be off by 180°.
Once you have the belt fixed you'll need to do a compression test to see if there is any damage to the engine. If you have a difference of more than 10% on any cyclinder you'll need to take the head(s) off and check for damage.
If you want further help with this you can contact me through this web site.
