First off, if it slipped, you desparately need a new belt.

You may be able to locate timing marks on the cam gear and crankshaft pulley but you would be better off buying the Haynes or Chilton repair manuals to avoid mistakes.
Unless your engine is a 'non-interference' engine, you may end up trashing at least the valves if not the entire head if you don't get it right.
Most engines can tolerate a tooth off in either direction without damage.
My summer toy car, an '87 Bertone, can run this way but it is really weird- either no revs and pulls like a tractor or wild revs with no torque.

Cx 7 mazda cel codes P0011 and P0016

Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

What will happen if the timing jump and the car stop

If the timing belt slips far enough the pistons will hit the valves and bend them, possibly cracking the pistons as well. If it has not slipped too far the car will either not start or will run very badly, but if it starts the timing belt will slip again and do more damage.

There should be a belt tensioner which requires a socket and a ratchet to pull tension off the belt by prying on this tensioner in the opposite direction.. Good Luck

How do I tighten the A/C belt on my 2008 Mazda 5? The darn thing is squealing so loud but I can't seem to find a tensioner anywhere...

If it is a serpentine belt is is self adjusting. So if it is squealing then it needs replacing as it is worn out. And also possibly the tensioner needs replacing as it may not be holding sufficient tension on the belt. If it is a drive belt it more than likely still needs replacing as it will have become glazed from slipping. On a drive belt it is adjusted by loosening the mounting bracket on the A/C and moving it in a direction that tightens the belt.

Timing belt on 1996 mazda protege slips during startup

Hello, this to me sounds like your fan belt slipping (not timing belt). To adjust the fan belt you need to undo your bolt on the alternator, pull it tight onto the fan belt and while holding it tight do the bolt back up tightly. this will stop yoour fan belt from slipping. I hope this helps.

My 2000 Mazda Millenia Edition has problem with a belt. Is this something a novice can do? It knocks but the mechanic said it's probably just a belt that is slipping to bring it in...

if your car has the super charger a slipping belt could cause performance issues. might as well replace both belts at the same time. it'll save you time later.

draw the path of the belts out onto paper for refference. the tensioners are automatic and have a 3/8 rachet drive built into them. if you can't get a rachet in there you'll need a belt tensioner tool (long flat bar with various attachments). you have to pull the tensioner counter clockwise to remove tension from the belt for removal and then again for reinstallation. may take you an hour for both. watch your fingers.
