I have a whiney noise when excelerating with my 1996 Mazada MX-6. Someone suggested that it could be a power steering pump. Is that possible? Why would that cause a noise when excelerating?

It could be any part that spins and has a bearing including the power steering pump, air condition compressor, alternator, water pump etc., even if the belts are too tight!!! The easiest way to find problem is by removing each belt and see if the noise is still there.

Mazda MX-6 v6. One clyinder is not firing. Spark

Switch it with another and check if the miss follows the injector.
Also you should check for a voltage pulse at the missing cylinder injector connector.

Engine compatibility for a 1996 maxda Mx-3 precidia

If you have a 4 cyl motor, that any 4cyl will fit from an MX-3 (and a few other vehicles actually).

If you have a V6, then you can use any other MX-3 1.8L OR MX-6 OR Ford Probe OR Millenia 2.5L V6 motor (160hp)! You can import the KLZE (200hp) from japan for around $1300 and it will also fit (2.5L V6).
