Check to see that all your timing marks are still in line at TDC No1 cylinder, compression stroke.. Sounds like the engine is trying to push against itself.

SOURCE: 1997 Mazda 626 timing belt problem

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH EITHER THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT, OR HAVE YOU MOVED THE DIZZY WHEN CHANGING THE ROTOR ARM? IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH A TIMING LIGHT, THEN YOU CAN CHECK ALL THE TIMING WITHOUT STRIPPING IT AGAIN. BUT IF YOU CHECK THAT THE DIZZY IS TIGHT THEN IT IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT

Since you have double checkedthe timing and checked the battery make sure you are getting a spark at the plugs and that you are getting fuel. Make sure all sensors are plugged in and are working. Check near the crankshaft (front) for a small sensor and be sure it is plugged in. This is because some vehicles have a crankshaft position sensor to regulate when the spark is delivered to the plugs.

SOURCE: timing belt/waterpump

usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.

PT Cruer will turn over but wont fire. Have changed the Cranks Shaft sensor, Cam Shaft sensor, TIming belt and Water pump.


try resetting the CPU program because periods with the battery disconnected corrupts the program which has the immobiliser program in it as well. Use a scanner for this job as removing and re fitting the cable only does half a job and probably will not fix the area that is needed.

1997 mazda 626 won't start.


Are the plugs wet with fuel?
Check for spark. No spark? it may be the ignition module.

Plugs dry and spark present? No fuel?Spray a little starting fluid and see if it will run on that.
Then check pump fuses and for fuel pump noise.

I have a 91 626 mazda, timeing belt broke and the water pump was leaking...so i left it in the garage,the car was not worked on unitl ten months later,i changed the timeing belt and water pump,also new...


Check the ECM for codes. Cam or crank sensors will cause a no start. Also there should have been a compression and/or leak down test performed on the engine before the belt was replaced. This is done to make sure that the pistons didn't bend the valves. Bent valves will cause a nostart because of no compression. First check for codes then do a compression test before you replace anything. Let me know

Sounds like you have burned a belt off the pulley for the alternator and water pump. Dont drive the car until you have verified the belt is intact and the water pump is turning. Something had to have caused it if it did, I would suspect water pump, alternator, or air conditioning compressor has siezed if your car is equipped with it.

How do you replace the water pump on a 2002 mazda 626 4cyl? does it interact with the timing belt?


hi from uk the 626 water pump is not driven by timing belt but by another drive belt so easy to change after removal of under wing cover to access /see pump b4 you remove drive belt would advise you to slacken off the water pump pully 1st while it is held by drive belt to prevent turning ? then with belt off /pully removed pump is more accessable hope this helps?

Low idle speed problem!


You probably disturbed the timing between the crankshaft and the camshaft if you loosened the timing belt.
