Question about Cars & Trucks
Changed the timing belt now have no spark
There could be numerous reasons for this, which may require a certified auto mechanic to diagnose. It could be your spark plugs, your wires, your distributor, your starter, your battery, corroded terminals, etc. Without knowing what you have found it is not, it would be difficult or next to impossible to guide you to a solution. Unless you have someone that can come to you, you may be best recommended to take it in for a diagnostic check. It could even be something as simple as a blown fuse. There is just no way to know without someone qualified looking at it. Good luck! JD

check timing belt timing on the cam gear and crank gear. if timing belt has 60000 miles or more. if they dont break first. they stretch enough jump out of time.

California has a law that Mazda guarantees the timing belt will last 105,000. I drove my 1999 Miata that long before I replaced it. Mazda ia a non interactive motor which means that if the belt breaks the car stalls and won't go anywhere. No damage to engine if it breaks.

VSS or vehicle speed sensor aka cam sensor or crank position sensor. Test the battery and alternator. You should also check for blown fuses, bad wires and grounds on a car as old as yours. If you find it's getting spark and fuel after further testing, check the timing belt. It could have slipped or broke even if it was changed recently so either pull off the cover or at least do a compression test.

there is one large bolt 13mm i think near the top and the tensioner on the side. just loosen that baby and push the alternator and take off the blet
