RE: 2001 Tribute, Timing Belt/Chain
ahhhh, ok, so lesson learned for me...to post what kind of vehicle. It's a 2001 mazda tribute dx, 2.3L 4 cylinder. I guess that's why I keep getting different answers! Even the dealership told me today it was a CHAIN. But if babybuey is correct it's a BELT. That may be the least of my worries anyhow, tonight I lost all power to it on my way to work! So if anyone can help with this I am changing the subject a little, I know, but.....I have a manual transmission, and today when I would take it out of gear into neutral it would rev up to about 3.2 on the RPM gauge.After I would come to a complete stop it would go backdown to 1.0 like normal, it was only if the car was moving that it reved up (and I was not touchingeither the gas or clutch pedal.Then tonight I lost all power. And I do mean ALL. Thanks all you guys for your help! Feeling like my first car buying experience without a husband has gone very very very badly!
