Re: 2002 Mazda 626 would not start - now smoking
You may have a oil or a coolant leak and it is getting on belts. try using a garden hose ans wash off belts and see if noise goes away than look for leak and get back to meI would be more than glad to help. Also your battery may be weak that why you would start this morning. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

I would fix that one because it would be a big hassle to change over, You would have to change cv joints install shifter and cables. I haven't seen to many 626 with trans leaks but It would be worth it to fix.
I had a similar sounding problem: my '02 626 would turn over but not start and I know my solution will sound strange but it worked. To start with I had a 4.5 year-old battery and I cranked on the starter until the battery started dying. I then left the car in my driveway overnight and the next afternoon, when I had time, I hooked it up to my battery charger (set on 'fast charge' ) and I pulled off one of the spark plug wires and tried to ground it then had my 17 year-old turn the starter over to see if we had any spark reaching the plugs. The car then started! While I was holding a spark plug wire in my hand! I replaced the battery that night and have not had a problem since (about 4 weeks ago). How old is your battery? Take it to a parts store that does battery diagnosis and have 'em check it out... It may just be your culprit.
