Wait, you replace the wrong pulley into a better one? if so, here is a solution:
First off it's called an OBD II sensor, changing your fuel filter is a good idea but prolly not the answer...i would first check your air filter and the housing, then change the plugs and wires. Also could also be your fuel pressure regulator which is located on the back of your fuel rail pull the vacuum line off and check if there is fuel in the line. then the last two things I suggest checking is your EDIS box( that where your spark plug wires plug into away from the motor) and the Idler which is on the throttle body

I have a 1996 Mazda 626 2.0 Automatic. It runs

of course the top is hot water goes into the rad from the top and out of the bottom into the engine, the fact that the belt broke makes me wonder about the integrity of the water pump, the impeller might be slipping, could still be the rad , does the heat go from the top to the bottom???

My car squeals when I start it. Is it the timing

Not the timing belt....more like the sepentine or accessory drive belt (your fan belt), or bad bearings in the alternator or idler pulley.

If that is the best answer they could give you sounds like you need a new mechanic.
The idle on this car is preset if it has started idling high look for a vacuum leak. there is a reason it is too high you will probably regret messing with idle as it can screw othe options up as well.
