Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

2 Answers

Installing power steering...

I was given a 1990 B2200 with 68,000 miles on it and after a little work it should make a great beat it into the ground truck. The truck did not come with power steering but it does have air conditioning. My question is will the power steering system fit on the engine with the a/c in place? I can get the whole p/s system from a local bone yard but I would hate to go through the trouble and expense of buying it only to not be able to use the equipment. Anyone have any ideas?
Another question, is it legal or will the truck pass emissions if I install headers and remove the 1st cat and all the plumbing to the air cleaner?

Some states it is illegal. But if you don't live in a state that does inspections, then don't worry about it.
I was wondering, does the truck you now have, set up for steering pump bracket? Is there are bolts or holes in the right spots? If everything measures out and doesn't look like there will be to many obstacles in the way, then I don't see why it wouldn't work out. As long as everything looks the same and will match up.

Recommended maintenence for 1999 cadillac such as throtle body, power steering, transmission, coolant, etc.


there is no maint required for the throttle body per say, just clean it if you develope a problem like stalling at idle, same goes for power steering, but a flush of the fluid every 30,000 miles is helpfull to extend life of pump and steering rack, the transmission needs to be given a fluid and filter change at least every 60,000 miles, the filters replaced for fuel and air every 30,000 miles and the spark plugs replaced at 100,000 miles.

My turn signals won't work?


If you change the fuse for the turn signals, and it blows, you have a direct short somewhere. You have a hot wire contacting ground somewhere. The frame of your car, as well as any sheet metal of the car, is ground.

Yes sir! It's going to be a little difficult finding where this short is. Suggest you start with the turn signal bulb sockets, and work your way along the wiring to them. A lot of times, there is rust buildup inside the turn signal bulb socket.
It may be in the turn signal switch located in the steering column.

I'm afraid I'm not clear, about your question about the power steering.
1.There's no fuse to it.
2.If your power steering acts erratically, I suggest you check the power steering fluid level, and see what shape the serpentine belt is in. The belt may be in a worn out condition, and slipping around the pulleys, when you go to use the power steering.

Closely observe the belt. If it is weather checked, it's time for replacement. It's no time to replace it when you're miles away from a parts store, and no way to get there.

Toyota steering too light


The only way I know of to bleed a power steering system is to turn the steering wheel from lock to lock (all the way to one side and then turn all the way to the other side) 3 or 4 times. that will bleed all the air out of the system. You might have had a leak for a longer than that you realized and by fixing the hose the power steering works VERY good and you are no long used to how easy it once worked.

No power


If the check engine light is on,have it scanned for trouble codes.Diagnose and repair any codes.I have a car very very similar to yours with 188k miles,great car,runs drives great,good mileage,heat,a/c paint,everything,just no power.2.0 ltr sohc,,non turbo,they just weren't very powerful in those days.Mine has new timing belts too,and no diff in the performance before or after.Maybe a true cold air intake might help power a little.Also have the catalytic convertor checked for adequate flow as over the years they can restrict flow a little at a time and dwindle power output.
