Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

1 Answer

I bought my 1988 Mazda b2200 from an elderly man who said it smoked because it needed to have the valve seals replaced and he didn't care to do it. He gave me a set of new seals. I decided to pull the head and have it resurfaced and gring the valves professionally. The discovered one of the valve guides was broken and the valve was bent. They replaced the guide, seals, resurfaced the head, replaced the lifters.and assembled everything on the head. I put everything back together according to the manual. It started right up and seemed to run good and smooth but it still smoked. Possibly more than before. I took it for a drive and felt a vibration or shudder around 30mph. I figured I might have hooked up one of the vacume lines incorrectly (and there are many). I numbered the like the manual said . I disconnected the vac line tht went to the distributer while it was running. no change in engine idle. There is not anything in the manula about the correct routing of the vac lines. I checked a different trouble shooting site where someone had the same problem but they just recommended he take it to a garage. Can you tell me what the problem solution is or at least what line should go to the distributer? Thanks Bob

SOURCE: 1993 Mazda B2200 smokes blue smoke for 2 min.on

The oil rings on the pistons may be stuck, gummed up. I would remove the spark plugs and and see if you can find some Combustion Chamber Cleaner or some other type of cleaner that will cut carbon and oil sludge. Put about .5 oz in each cylinder over night and in the morning spin the enigne over a few timers and then replace the plugs and go drive it a few miles. That may get the rings unstuck.

SOURCE: Ex-wife had used this 99 626 Mazda 4 cyl for 4 yrs

check to see if the big hose going from the air filter to the throttle body has a split in the hose convolutes. Thus air is bypassing the MAF sensor. IS CEL light on? Clean MAF sensor wires with carb cleaner too. rpeort results.

White smoke


White smoke is usually oil...sounds like the engine is burning oil thru the pcv system. Somehow oil is getting sucked backed down the intake and getting used again. Try changing the pcv valve on top or near the valve cover. It usually has a tube going to the carb base. Remember, all engines draw air in like a vacuum.....find your oil leak, and you will cure your smoke prob. Good luck.

i just bought an 88 that crazy overheated could only drive for 30 mins before had to stop. no leaks anywhere, did a compression check on the cylinders,checked out. no water in oil. took the radiator to a shop theyll do a flow test for free, got mine fixed for like 80 bux but you can buy a new one for 120. the white smoke might be your fuel filter
