Mazda MX3 1994


Changed waterpump now car will turn over but wont fire up? any advice?


On the MX3, the waterpump is under the timing belt cover, but isn’t driven by the timing belt? What did you have to remove to get the timing belt covers off? If it were me, the problem would probably be that I didn’t put everything back on properly when I put the timing belt covers back on.

But if you are changing water pumps, you probably already have that figured out. Maybe if you list the ignition (and fuel if any) system parts that you had to remove and reinstall, someone will have a thought.
