2001 Mazda Protege Problems

The timing belt tensioner pulley may make a squealing noise from the timing cover area on cold startup. An updated tensioner with a thicker mounting bracket to eliminate vibration may be needed to solve the problem.

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.

Misfires under load (acceleration) can be caused by leaky spark plug boots. When a spark plug boot leaks, it allows the spark to arc, or jump, to the cylinder head. New spark plug wires will be needed.

2001 Mazda Protege Questions

I feel a wobble or shimmy in the front left wheel, and it the tire might be having trouble rolling.

I just changed my TPS Sensor and put everything back together. Went to turn the car on and the engine will not crank. I do have battery but no response when turning the key. Any possible diagnosis would be a help.

Thanks
