So I have an 2002 mazda protege and not long after putting in a new stereo and cleaning the car and the engine My car started shaking and having a hard time accelerating I did a diagnostic test on it cause...

Check the spark plug for Cylinder #3. Check the boot and wire around that plug and back to the distributor/coil. Likely have water (from washing your engine) arcing and shorting that cylinder & causing misfire. Wait for a long time for everything to dry, should clear itself. Also, hope you used MAF sensor cleaner to clean the MAF sensor. If you used something else, you might have ruined the sensor - it is very delicate.

Jaguar xj sport 3.2 no spark or injector pulse

If ECU has crank signal and engine turns over, ECU should give injectors a pulse and trigger the ignition. If not ECU might be bad. You should check power and grounds going to ECU. There are usually multiple power and grounds going into ECU

Dirty fuel injectors. Computer will show misfire on the cylinders that are malfunctioning. If injector cleaner in tank won't clean them, pull them all out and have a professional take them apart and cleaned. Each injector has a screen in it that can get plugged up. Think about Bro, all other stuff has been renewed.

I steam clean my motor today then change the oil,spark plugs& flushed the cooling system,the car ran great for the first 20 miles then it lost power and the engine died it took a while to get it...

YES,you steam cleaned the engine,it may right itself after drying out(hopefully)when you steam clean, the water particles are much smaller than a normal "hose down"so you may have wet the electronics.if it starts, then let it run for awhile to (hopefully)dry out itself.
