Question about Mazda B2300

1 Answer

I can't get a spark plug reinstalled in my '95 Mazda B2300 2WD

I took the spark plug out after several years of it being there. It stayed in there probably 5-7 times as long as it should have. It unscrewed ok, but the new plug which is same brand and type, won't go in. It gets started ok, but after about 3 rotations it stops hard like it doesn't want to thread in. I am tightening it with my hand pressure using a long necked extender attached to the spark plug, not the wrench. I twist left a few turns to backthread it, then i twist clock-wise to tighten it. Tomorrow I am buying another of the same spark plug to make sure it's not the plug. What could I be doing wrong? Is there some kind of threader liquid I could pour on the threads? What's the worst that can happen if the threads are cross-threaded? Could Mazda or myself fix that sort of problem? Thanks for reading. Rob

You can put a little bit of oil on the treads to get it started. Do not cross tread it because it will strip the hole out and you will have to replace everything.

1999 Mazda I changed the battery and spark plugs everytime i driver it for a good min it shuts off and wont start unless I let it sit for about 30 mins will not stay krunk need some advice


This could be several possible causes. If possible I would find out what the spark plugs looked like when they were pulled from the engine. Since you had the radiator changed assuming that diagnosis was correct for the overheating you may or may not have more severe internal problems with the engine. Start with what the spark plugs looked like and possibly what the present spark plugs look like.

Oil leaked into the sparkplug tube from the round valve cover seal at the top of the tube. Replace valve cover gasket with spark plug tube seals and problem will be solved.

recheck all connectors. something has to be left disconnected. if you know there is no spark at plugs i would start around the distributor area.

Spark plugs


pull one plug at a time and put the wire on it. set it off to the side and have someone turn the car over. if the plug sparks its good. of not its bad. my suggestion is replace all plugs. maybe 20$ worth of parts.
