I have an 02 Protege5 which is pretty much the same engine. I changed mine at 105000 km's. Generally, you do it at about the 100000 km (62000 mile) mark. However, I know of others who pushed their cars to 150000 kms. Good news is that I believe that the Protege uses a non-interference engine (means the valves wont crash into the pistons if the timing belt breaks). However, you should double check this with your local Mazda dealership. Dont take my opinion for word.

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.

2002 Mazda Protege timing belt replaced and


Scan PCM for codes. Check that timing is correct again.These DOHC engines are easy to install a tooth out. Start from the top of engine when installing timing belt on this type of engine it's the easiest way to do it. If you took CRANKSHAFT pulley apart make sure the pick up ring behind isn't placed in backwards.

Timing Belt replacement- two recomendations by mazda manual


they are good for well over 100k. If your engine is freewheeling (that is - if belt does break, no valve will hit the psiton), I would just keep driving it until it breaks or never does.
I am driving my 93 Villager until it breaks. over 150k right now, freewheeling engine.

As for cost, about $400 is my guess.

Ask your dealer service dept if it's freewheeling. check your owner manual too.

How much should I reasonably pay to replace the Timing belt in my 2002 Mazda Protege 5?


replacement of timing belt $350-$500. aftermarket shops will try to sell you a package containg a belt, water pump, and tensioner pulley. the dealer will just replace the belt, they might recommend to replace the water pump if there are alot of miles on the car, they will also inspect the pulley for wear.
