Question about 1997 Mazda 626
2.0 liter /automatic trans
This engine is one of the more straightforward types to time as no unusual or special procedures are required and the belt tension is automatically set by a spring. Because the alignment marks are all available at the front no special holding or setting tools are needed.
The belt replacement and timing procedure will be completely intuitive to any competent person, however it is an interference engine and getting it wrong is likely to cause expensive engine damage.
In this case I feel I must make the comment if you need to ask how to do the job you probably shouldn't be attempting it and make the suggestion you obtain a repair manual for your car or pay someone to do it for you this time so you can observe.

I would try a flush. If its set up like my 96, and it likely is, changing the trasmission gasket and filter will be difficult. Mine has a medal plug on the bottom and takes an allen wrench, and possibly a breaker bar. If you take out this plug, drain, flush then refill via the dipstick tube and a funnel, it may help. You may need to do this a couple of times due to fluid still in the torque converter, pan, etc.
Lucas is good stuff, I would add it again when I was done. The tranny fluid should be pink, mine looked like used oil black before I flushed it.
Also, when adding the new fluid, shift slowly up and down through all of the gears to lube well and check your fluid levels after 100 miles or so, as sometimes a bubble will form and make it look full....then not after it pops.

Dumb question, but, did you happen to the diagram on the underside of the hood, the strut tower towards sides of the motor or on the radiator support.

SOURCE: spark plug firing order
check the ignition coil power source...get a test light & check for power with the key on @ the positive side of the coil...if it does have power have a friend crank the engine over & check the negative side for a flashing light..if it does then make sure you have spark @ the coil if not replace the coil
