Question about 2001 Mazda Protege

2 Answers

We have replaced the motor on a 1995 blazer with a rebuilt long block. The engine will now turn over but not start. It has been suggested that we replace the cam sensor. Plugs fire and it's getting gas? Any suggestions? (the distributor can only be placed in one position so we know that's correct).

The distributor can only go in one position, but the rotor can go anywhere. You have to take the top off the distributor, turn the engine to #1 compression stroke, and see where the rotor points. If it's not pointing to #1, you have to lift the dist. and turn the rotor so it is at #1. Pay close attention to where number one is on the cap. Look underneath it, and you'll see what i mean. They are off -set. When you have it all lined up properly, it should fire.
The best way to get it to compression stroke is to stick your finger in #1 spark plug hole, and then turn the engine a little bit at a time, using the key. When it pops your finger out, you're close. Then turn the crank shaft by hand so the mark is at "0".

It has to be in the timing, you either have the wires in the wrong place with the firing order, or there is something wrong with the Dist.If it is sparking and getting gas, it should fire up. Does it back fire? Order no. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, with electronic ignition, number one at 5:30, I would check the distributor, make sure the number one is at 5:30 with the number one at tdc. Hope this helps.

I'm assuming the check engine light is not on. You'll have to figure out if it is fuel or ignition to proceed.
Any chance its a wiring problem and something is getting pinched or pulled when you turn ?

Can i put a 1999 chevy blazer motor and transmission in my 1995 chevy blazer?


Yes, it's involved though. You would have to use the PCM (or ECM), and wiring harness's for both the engine and transmission. You would have to get wiring diagrams for both vehicles (eautorepair.net $29 year). Then you would have to look over each wiring diagram and interface the newer wiring diagram to the older vehicle. Not impossible but requires a knowledgeable mechanic.

Probably easier and cheaper to get a reman short block and overhaul or replace your 1995 transmission.

How do i adjust the timing on a 1995 Chevy Blazer 4.3 vortec 4x4


Get a timing light, and start the engine. Point the light at the crankshaft dampener. There should be marks on the dampener and a gauge thing attached to the block. You advance or ****** the distributor until the lines are lined up. I would also suggest getting a Haynes manual from auto zone I hope this helps please rate this thank you

Upper block fills with antifreeze in between manifold and block


You have a blown head gasket. Did motor over heat? Is there antifreeze in the oil? If so head gasket, engine will need top end rebuilt, at minimum. Do not drive until repaired, you will blow up motor.

Not cranking


If the engine is locked up try pulling spark plugs to see if radiator fluid is inside. If so the intake plenum would need replacing as well as an oil change.
