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

SOURCE: Miata has 61000 miles want replace timing belt to be on safe side

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.

If the spark is there and you have fuel, then it's time to pull the covers and check the timing belt had not slipped a tooth or two. This can happen if the tensioner is loose or old. Idler bearings can jam and cause belt slips. "..hearing belt noises" is not good, but is the clue I think. Realign everything and see if it starts. If there's obvious damage to the cam shaft sensor, you'll need to replace it. Look on rockauto.com for parts.

Pull a plug wire and test for spark. May help identify a cam position sensor which is 100% required to run. They go out often enough for ships to stock them. You can pull all of the plugs and do a compression test to help confirm likely hood of the belt being correct.

Mazda 2005 MX5 timing belt issues- does it have a timing belt or a timing chain?


I've looked on several parts sites and no one list MX 5 as a Model for the vehicle. The closest they get is the Miata. If you have the L4 Motor, which is listed on the Miata it has a Timing belt.
