I am haveing trouble with my 1996 Mazda B2300, When I start my truck after its been sitting for any length of timeI have to rev the engine to get it started, I have to continue reving until engine is warm...


Replace the temperature sending unit/sensor. This sensor tells the computer to put the engine into cold start mode and it then sets idle a bit higher and puts a bit more fuel into the engine to keep it running without having to touch the throttle. Once it's warm, sensor tells computer to go to normal run mode and it's done. No problem.

Go to an auto parts supply store and ask them to read your OBD II code(s). Knowing these codes will give you an idea of what the problem is. Some auto parts store personnel are also knowledgeable enough to give you some guidance on what the codes really mean.

My truck turns over, but wont start unless I spray starter fulid. What could be the problem?


Could be blocked fuel filter or fuel pum, does it keep running once you stop spraying the starter fluid, Try also cleaning out the throttle that could be restricting the mix.

Security System


You need to go to autozone or advance and do an obd2 scan. This will give you codes so you can plot your next course of action. It will tell you if a sensor or something else is faulty
