Re: Each time I crank the car the clock goes to Pacific...
Hi, the clock reset when the battery voltage falls below the threshold and it happens under load and will be dependent on the duration of the crank.
Have your battery checked UNDER LOAD free at auto zones or other retailers. You have to change the battery to solve the problem.

Hello, crank position sensor located at the 2 o`clock position hidden behind timing cover and crank shaft pulley. If you look closely in well lit area or use a flashlight you can follow the (CCPS) harness down the right hand side of timing cover to where it goes into lower timing cover on lower right hand side of crank shaft pulley. It can be replaced with out removing timing belt. Please note if the 60,000 miles heavy service interval for timing belt is needed and water pump condition should be observed when repairing the crank position sensor.
Your timing is incorrect. The timing belt marks are : "E" on top of cam sprocket at 12 o clock, and key way for crank is also at 12 o clock, There is a small hole in the arm of the cam sprocket under the letter "E" that lines up with a detent. Also if you slide your crank pulley back on with the lower plastic timing cover installed, the notch on the crank pulley will line up perfectly to '0'.
there are special tools pin to lock crank in correct position and cams have flat plate that goes across into both at rear of cams small section goes up from memory, the cam gears have no dowel pin/locating pin to camshaft you do bolts up last when all are locked in position and grenade pin (locking)pin in tensioner is removed and chain is tight then hold cams with shifter or spanner(wrench) on cam flats and do up cam gear to camshaft bolts on each cam.
hole in front cover just above crank pulley at 11O clock, blind blanking plug must be removed to put in chain tensioner pin, crank blanking plug on your left side when looking at crank pulley(side of block) remove and locking pin goes into there when at TDC no1. and cams should be in position to lock with plate as described above.may not be any timming marks on chains or gears due to the locking tools needed and relied on for correct position.
good luck if you feel confident.
some Mazda dealerships may lend tools if you ask nicely or know some one.
If you dont have a impact gun,heres a trick,first,see if the crank goes clock wise direction,if it does,put the socket whit a long brackerbar in a way that will hold it self,then crank the engine whit the starter,whit the ignition key.
On almost ALL Chevrolets Timing Marks are the Top Gear is your Cam Sproket,The DOT on the Casting goes straight Down at 6-a Clock, Then your Crank Shaft Sproket Goes Straight up at 12 A Clock. So the Dots are Meeting Each Other. This Will be TDC Top Dead Center.
That motor has a timing chain, not a timing belt. Replacing it requires removing the water pump, dropping the oil pan, removing the balancer and timing cover. Rotate the crank so the dots on the cam gear and crank gear line up at the 6 and 12 o clock positions respectively. Unbolt the cam gear and remove it and the chain. If you need to remove the crank gear you can use a three jaw puller or something similar to pull it off. Reinstall the crank gear lining up the gear with the keyway on the crank and press it on with the appropriate tool. Install the cam gear with the chain and make sure dots line up again. It may be necessary to remove the valve covers and rocker arms as well to rotate the cam shaft if need be.
cam gear mark lines up with head at 9 o clock and dowl pin near centre bolt is at 12 o clock
crank gear keyway at 12 o clock and mark in disc behind gear lines up with mark on oil pump at 12 o clock also.
there will be two highlighted or dotted chain links for the camshaft and one for the crankshaft gear, position cam dot/TDC indicator in the 12-O clock position, the two dotted links should be on ether side of cam dot, turn crank dot to the 6-O clock position and line up highlighted link with dot on crank gear, if timing cover is on, then make sure cylinder 1 is at TDC when the two links are at 12-O clock.
