    Did you put the engine at top dead center #1 cylinder and align the marks on the cam(s) to the index mark?? If you didn't do that then the belt is on wrong. You need a service manual for this, you may have damaged the valves or broken/bent the stems

Dont worry to much the Millenia is a non-interference engine so the valves did not get bent. You just need to re-adjust the belt again in its proper position.

2002 mazda millenia 2.5 v6 just replaced timing belt that was broken...double and triple checked t belt alignment is correct put it all back no start...compression is 50% suposed to...

Can stop cranking. With compression figures that low, it will never start. Are you sure the figures are accurate? Throttle wide open when cranking up pressure? Compression has to be at least 100 psi for the spark to ignite the mixture.
If the belt broke while engine was running, and if it is an interference engine, you may have sustained some bent valves, internal damage to one or more cylinders, but not, I don't think, to all cylinders. I don't understand how you are getting such low compression on all cylinders Those figures sound like both head gaskets are failed, or the timing is way off.
Review your timing procedure and recheck compression. Something is definitely wrong. Hope you can figure it out. Good luck.

How to install a distributer on a 2000 mazda millenia 2.5L

You'll need to rotate the engine only in a clockwise direction, to get it to TDC on the compression stroke. When the engine is on the compression stroke, both valves to that cylinder are closed completely.

You can hold your finger over the #1plug hole with the plug removed, and as the engine is turned, you will notice pressure building, use a long rubber hose or something you won't drop into the cylinder, to put into the cylinder to feel the piston as it comes up to the very top. If you go past it, rotate the crankshaft 2 full times (almost) to get back to the TDC position.

There is also a mark on the crank pulley that will tell you when you reach TDC. Identifying the compression makes sure it's on the compression stroke, not the exhaust stroke. The engine turns 2 full turns for one turn of the camshaft.

Once you have TDC on the engine, rotate the distributor in your hand, to where the rotor will be pointing at the #1 position where it would send spark to the #1 spark plug wire & plug. Install and adjust as necessary to get the best idle, then hook up your timing light to set it to the factory specs.
Good luck!

I have a 91 626 mazda, timeing belt broke and the water pump was i left it in the garage,the car was not worked on unitl ten months later,i changed the timeing belt and water pump,also new...

Check the ECM for codes. Cam or crank sensors will cause a no start. Also there should have been a compression and/or leak down test performed on the engine before the belt was replaced. This is done to make sure that the pistons didn't bend the valves. Bent valves will cause a nostart because of no compression. First check for codes then do a compression test before you replace anything. Let me know

Timming belt shreded, do you think hurt anythig ,head valves ect. how mutch to fix 1997mazda millenia

Hi More than likely, most of the Mazda range are identified as an interference, in other words when the timing belt breaks or slips the pistons will hit the valves, my advice change the belt and then compression test the cylinders before removing the head just in case god smiled on you,

I cannot locate the fuel filter on a Mazda xedos 9 miller cycle engine - where is the fuel filter on a Mazda Xedos 9 Miller cycle engine

Mazda fuel filters are usually found underneath the back seat. At least that's where mine was. I have a Millenia. Good thing back seats are easy to remove.

Will not crank and backfires

Hopefully, it is a mis-timing of the ignition and not an improperly installed timing belt or chain. The latter cold be fatal to the engine. I suspect that was not a cheap replacement so I wouldn't delay having it checked.
