Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
That car is not a standard OBD2 conector I believe and requires a specific tool. That's if its the same protege I work on from time to time. The connection plug is inside the engine bay, close to the left side strut top.

Judging from what i know, the timing on the engine is probably a bit off, and i remember reading the exact same problem on another web site and that is also what they said. So just check the timing on the engine or have it checked by a mechanic if you don't know how to do it.

Depending on where you live, you can go to different places, as long as they sell auto parts. Also, in some countries, the law states that the car dealer is obligated to give them to you no charge if your car is a certain year, in others they can charge what they like. So ask your dealer if they can give you some first. If not, then they will charge you twice or thrice the price everone on else will. I live in canada and around here i can tell you that you can go at Canadian Tire, UAP/NAPA, Carquest to get some, and i think Wal-Mart have some in the automobile departments now. In The US i would guess Wal-Mart also have some (duh!:P), and i do believe that they do have NAPA in the states also, as well as your local auto parts store whatever it may be and wherever you may live. If they don't have any, they will surely be able to tell you where you can find some. Hope this helps!

I recommend that you go to any Auto Parts store and by a repair user manual for your 2000 Mazda Protege. They have pictures and arrows and stuff that you will need to do the whole job. The non-Mazda version will cost approximately $15.00.
Because of the tensioner that may come off when while you are doing these belt changes, it is too complicated to talk you through this.
But with the manual, I am confident you can change them.
