Inside of the top gear there is a hash mark, you need to turn the gear so that the hash mark is top center. (you need a second person to help you for the next step.) You then have to take the first spark plug out and stick a long screw driver inside of the hole. You then have to turn the bottom gear until the first cylinder comes all the way up. You then put the new belt on the car without moving the two gears.

first make sure you have the correct belt for the application. then make sure you are installing the belt the correct way, going to and around the correct pulleys. there should be a decal under the hood somewhere that shows the routing of the belt it may still be there and not missing.

Do you need to replace the timing belt when you change a water pump for a 1998 mercury mystique v6?

You don't have to replace it but you have to take the belt off to remove the water pump for the extra $30.00 i would recomend changing the belt too, unless the belt has been changed less then 20,000 miles ago .

Looking to buy a 1997 Mercury Mystique. There is a rattle coming from under a black plastic cover near the serpanetine belt. Is that where the timing belt is? How much would replacing it cost

Sounds like you are correct and the timing belt is worn. To replace the belt will cost you around $200. The Mercury Mystic and Ford Contour clone are very unreliable vehicles and my advise is to walk away. There are much better cars that you can buy in this price range.

Smelled mild burning, lost antifreeze - engine temp Hot. I looked under car and noticed a serverly frayed Belt - NOT the big surpentine belt - another small belt on the driver's side. 1999 Mercury Mystique...

For the 1999 Mercury Mystique Water Pump Belt on 2.5L V6 Engine:

Probable Causes: Belt: worn out, started slipping. Overheating caused by failure of Belt. Lost antifreeze: caused by failure of belt, not turning Water Pump Pulley, not circulating anitfreeze, which resulted in overheating.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine & Drive Belt Diagrams and Tensioners for your 2.5L Engine.
Scroll down the Page (about 1/3rd down) to Diagram #G99H08189, it shows the specific Water Pump Belt.
Note the Tensioner.
