Having problems with your 2001 Mazda Protege ?

We have replaced the motor on a 1995 blazer with a rebuilt long block. The engine will now turn over but not start. It has been suggested that we replace the cam sensor. Plugs fire and it's getting gas? Any suggestions? (the distributor can only be placed in one position so we know that's correct).

Answers :

The distributor can only go in one position, but the rotor can go anywhere. You have to take the top off the distributor, turn the engine to #1 compression stroke, and see where the rotor points. If it's not pointing to #1, you have to lift the dist. and turn the rotor so it is at #1. Pay close attention to where number one is on the cap. Look underneath it, and you'll see what i mean. They are off -set. When you have it all lined up properly, it should fire.
\015\012 The best way to get it to compression stroke is to stick your finger in #1 spark plug hole, and then turn the engine a little bit at a time, using the key. When it pops your finger out, you're close. Then turn the crank shaft by hand so the mark is at "0".
It has to be in the timing, you either have the wires in the wrong place with the firing order, or there is something wrong with the Dist.If it is sparking and getting gas, it should fire up. Does it back fire? Order no. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, with electronic ignition, number one at 5:30, I would check the distributor, make sure the number one is at 5:30 with the number one at tdc. Hope this helps.
