Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Mazda Protege 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
My wifes car was having some hesitation while driving and when I steped on it it broke the timming belt. The reason the belt broke was who ever replaced it before me didn't replace the belt ajuster and it froze thus burning up the belt. Anyway I have the belt on and have had 3 other people check the timming marks to make sure I put it on right how ever I can't get the car to start.
OK Here is the list of what I have done so far. Checked the fuel pump it does run when power applied directly or do dynastic test
replaced the Fuel pump Relay
Replaced the spark plugs
Replaced the spark plug wires
Checked to see if spark plugs now spark by grounding the plug and wire yet they spark
checked the fuse's none burned out
So all this checked. However when key is turned to the on position we have no fuel pressure and pump doesn’t work
when key is turned to start and car turns over the fuel pump turns on and get 40 PSI
Noticed there is a aftermarket alarm system wired on the car. Harrison-Hellfire alarm
I have looked up but the companey is out of buesiness. I got directions on how to remove from alarm tech.
This has never been used for 3 years of our owning this car. We didn't even know it was there.
Can you give me some sugestions on what else could be the issue.
