When you crank the engine does it sound whinny? If it does then yes its the timing belt, the only real way to tell is to remove the distributor cap and crank the engine and see if the rotor of the distributor turns if it turns then its not the timing belt. Here is the thing 1997 Mazda MPV is identified as a interference engine meaning that if the timing belt broke it is MOST likely to do engine valve damage, So you will have to pull the timing belt cover and inspect the T-belt you will know if its broken when you push on the belt and there is no tension on it,

97 mpv died while driving. getting gas / spark but know start. seems to be cranking very easily. rotor turns when trying to start. maybe jumped time? or blown head gasket. i need to check the oil. if no...


If it sounds to be cranking much faster than it did before or just an overall different sound then a good chance that the timing belt has jumped. That is unless the abnormally fast crank is due to low compression caused by washing down the cylinder walls with the fuel. If it was cranking fast or abnormal from the very beginning of this whole event then a check of the cam/crank timing would be in order.

YOUR BEST BET IS TO GO AHEAD AND REPLACE YOUR FUEL INJECTORS. BY POURING GAS IN TO YOUR INTAKE. YOU KNOW ITS GOT TO DO WITH YOUR FUEL SYSTEM. I TAKE IT YOUR CHECKING FURL PRESURE ON THE CHECK VALVE ON THE FUEL RAIL FOR THE INJECTORS. REPLCE THOSE AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD. JAKE.B

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas


it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)

My car doesn't start


The out-of-gas/added-gas bit is coincidental. You've lost charging, and so you're only driving on what charge is in the battery. That's why it won't start without a boost, and (since the battery isn't made to drive the car, just start it) why it dies after a few minutes.


If you're lucky, it's just that the alternator belt is broken or slipping. If the belt is in good shape, then your alternator has failed, possibly because your voltage regulator has failed.

You're probably looking at $300-$500 for a rebuilt alternator installation.

Good luck!

I have a 96' Dodge Neon, and my car wont start


Try looking to see if your injectors are clogged or if fuel is getting to the fuel rail. You can take the hose that is on the fuel rail off then try starting it or just pump the gas pedal and you should see gas coming out. I had a similar problem with my 97 neon and this was my problem just try and see, you never know.
