Question about 1995 Mazda Millenia

1 Answer

95 Mazda Millenia wont turnover

My mazda millenia has an intermittant starting problem. When I go out to start it, sometimes it starts right up and sometimes the starter just turns and the engine won't catch but then later on I'll try and it will start right up. I do get a check engine light when this occurs but I can't get it to an autozone to have it diagnosed. Now it won't catch at all. I hear the fuel pump clicking when I turn the key so I assume it's working. I need a little push in the right direction. Assistance would be appreciated.

    Ok, here's a twisty question. With my engine at TDC, where do I align my "R" and "L" cam pullies? On the "R" pulley, am I aligning the two dots on the pulley to the two pertrusions on the housing just over the top of the pully? On the "L" pulley, am I aligning the orange dot to the single pertrusion? My friend downloaded a 98 instructional on timing belt changing and engine timing because he couldn't find a 95 (Lord have mercy) and like an idiot I followed it and my engine still wouldn't turn over (wonder why..duh). I just need the right line up so I can press on and get my car out of my job's parking lot. I have no trouble disassembling and reassembling everything. It's just the doggone timing that gets me. Thanks again for your assistance.

If I am understanding you correctly you are saying that the starter turns sometimes and the engine does not, if this is the case the problem is the startr drive inside of the starter. If you are mechanically inclined this is alot cheaper to repair then replacing the starter. Good luck and remember to rate all the solutions you get, thanx.

    I don't have a spec book on your vehicle, however on the cam pulleys you obviously have found the indents or aignment marks. now if there is a backing plate located behind them it should have indents ( alignment marks ) on it sometimes very hard to see as sometimes they are very small indents, the timing marks on the cam pulleys ysuall point pretty much strait up. Sorry I can't be of much more assistance on this withoutactually seeing the front of the engine.Good luck. Have you tried locating a factory service manual for your car through Google.
