1999 Mazda Millenia 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
2.3L supercharged. (Do-it-yourselfer) I replaced the supercharger and seals (proudly) due to the leak with exhaust smoke. When finished, I start the car. It runs for a few seconds with the engine loping, and then cuts off. Since then, the car won't turn over. The battery is new, with plenty of fire. With key on, all lights show, horn blows, but motor won't turn over! With the switch on, and a test light on the "start" fuse, the motor turns (but still won't start). My only doubt when replacing the supercharger was putting back the vacuum lines near the egr valve. Could some out of reach fuse or solenoid have been blown? Would misplaced vacuum lines cause this kind of problem? Any more self-help ideas? 803-238-7579 (Gabe Smith)
