Engine Performance problem
1999 Mazda Protege 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles
I changed timing the timing belt on my 1999 mazda protege 1.6 and after that the engine cuts out at 4500rpm and then cuts back in under 4500 rpm. I double checked timing marls and everything is correct. I did notice that the timing sprocket for the sensor to fire ignition can be put on without any indication of its right position in reference to crankshaft. This sprocket is designed with one tooth missing and can be mounted in any of four positions on the four mounting bolts. Does anyone know the right position as I can not find any reference to this in any of the car books I have read and also if this is what could be causing the cut out problem?
have the same problem?
