1995 Mazda Protege ProblemsEngine Cranks and Doesn't Start
An electrically shorted air flow sensor can cause a crank-no start condition. Diagnosis may show that ignition spark is normal, and there are no trouble codes stored.
If the engine cranks but does not start, and diagnosis shows no fuel pressure, the fuel pump relay is frequently the problem. If the fuel pump relay is defective, the fuel pump will not energize and therefore, not generate fuel pressure so the engine can run.
If the Check Engine Light comes on, and diagnosis finds a trouble code, or codes, for misfires, it might be caused by insufficient valve clearance for the affected cylinder. The valve clearances should be inspected and adjusted where needed.
