Question about 2001 Mazda Protege
It sounds like you either have a very loose engine drive belt or belts (There are 2 on your car ) or more probably some component that is supposed to be rotated by the drive belts has seized up from sitting for so long. There are four different components that are rotated. The alternator, water pump, power steering pump, and air condioning compressor. Disable the ignition system by disconnecting the ignition coil connector and then have a helper crank the engine while you look at the pulleys to see which one is not turning with the rest.
