Question about 1996 Mazda Protege
How hard is it to change a water pump on a 1996 madza protege? And will I need to change the timing belt as well
Was It Starting Before?
Who Changed It?
If The Belt Broke And The Belt Was Just Put Back On Without It Being Put In (TDC) Top Dead Center The Car Will Not Run. Warning! Trying To Start It Over And Over Will Destroy The Engine.The Engine Works By Being (TDC) Top Dead Center The Timing Controls When The Cylinders Come To The Top. The cylinders Are Controlled By The Timing So When The Spark Plugs Try To Ignite. The Cylinders Are Not In Position And Thus Will Not Create Combustion For The Engine To Run.

there should be a mark on the crankshaft pulley there should be a mark on the camshaft pulley and they should line up but to be sure bring the motor to tdc then line your mark up on your camshaft

Hello, this to me sounds like your fan belt slipping (not timing belt). To adjust the fan belt you need to undo your bolt on the alternator, pull it tight onto the fan belt and while holding it tight do the bolt back up tightly. this will stop yoour fan belt from slipping. I hope this helps.
