SOURCE: 2001 mazda protege will not start

well, with all that you have changed the only two possible things that are left PCM and the ECM....

Do you have an alarm system on this vehicle? If you purchased this car second hand it may have something that is inhibiting the engine from firing. From what you have told us here that would be where I would start looking.

I really hope this is helpfull

SOURCE: What is the recommended engine oil for 95 ford festiva trio?

Hi!
Most modern engines use 10/40 or similar.
20/50 was well used in older classic vehicle. I would ask at your parts supplier when purchasing the oil, he or she will have the correct specifications on hand from their oil supplier.
Hope this helped!

Vehicle speed sensor. See if you can buy one of those cheap OBD2 scan tools Wal-mart sells, and if you have a P0500 in the PCM, I would place my money on a broken sensor. It costs about $60

Replace fuel filter on 2000 mazda protege


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

Oil


Depends on the tempurate where you live,

see this link for some great info:
http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/visc.html

MOTOR OIL VISCOSITY RATINGS

Viscosity ratings for commonly used motor oils typically range from 0 up to 50. A "W" after the number stands for "Winter" grade oil, and represents the oil's viscosity at zero degrees F.
Low viscosity motor oils that pour easily at low temperatures typically have a "5W" or "10W" rating. There are also 15W and 20W grade motor oils.
Higher viscosity motor oils that are thicker and better suited for high temperature operation typically have an SAE 30, 40 or even 50 grade rating.
These numbers, by the way, are for "single" or "straight" weight oils. Such oils are no longer used in late model automotive engines but may be required for use in some vintage and antique engines. Straight SAE 30 oil is often specified for small air-cooled engines in lawnmowers, garden tractors, portable generators and gas-powered chain saws.


Basically for your car I would run 5W-30, this keeps you covered in warm and cold climates, 10w-30 is the best choice if you live in a climate with temperatures that never go below 0degre''s Farenheight.
