My 1995 Mazda B2300 Truck, 2-dr. 4cyl. When driving up hills mostly, it engine sounds like it's dieseling, loses power, and the oil gauge goes crazy. Help?


Check your vacuum pump, that pump does all the switching of your sensor valves and ports. That would be my guess

It probably wasn't diesel in the oil unless someone put it there. Could be a piston.

What type oil does my Mazda Protege use


Your car is nothing fancy I take it, not a race car?, diesel? Just a normal car that burns gas. Then it will take normal oil, in the 10w40 weight range. Any brand but jiffy store, although it meets SAE standards, the weight is the important part, it depends on where you live and what season it is. If you live in Canada and it is winter time, 10w40 might be too thick, you should go with 5w30 instead, in Massachusetts, straight 30 weight is ok, down here in Florida, 10w40 is a must. Hot. So, go by that heat range, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

My oil stick is at the add line. How much oil should I put in? And what kind of oil? Dont know the oil compacity on the engine.


You do not list the engine size. This truck comes with 3 engines. 5.4 V8, 7.3 Diesel, and a V10. Your owner's manual will list the capacity. The add mark normally means add 1 quart on a V8. Add 1/2 quart wait 5 minutes and check the level again. The 5.4 L V8 capacity is 6 quarts of 5w20 with filter change. If it is a diesel then it requires a special oil for diesels which is 15w40 weight and it holds 14.5 quarts.

I have a mazda 6 2 litre diesel eating oil, what


Mazda say that if your Mazda 6 consumues less than a litre every 900 miles then it within tolerance.
However these cars have a complicated induction mechanism controld by lots of diffrent vacume pots that are inturn controlled by servos, when any one of these becomes faulty the pressure balance between the exhaust side of the turbo and the inlet side becomes inbalanced, resulting in oil being forced through the turbos bearings. Its that simple lol!
The first thing I would check would be the swirl control valve, In the inlet manifold, This gets fouled up by the exhaust gases getting recycled by the egr valve(exhaust gas recycler)
Sooty deposits mix with oil coming from your turbo and jam it closed restricting the amount of air into the engine, and reducing power as well as creating black smoke from your exhaust.
So my advice would be to get your egr valve proffetionally blanked off, and have your induction system checked over.
Hope this helps as I am sure this is a very common problem!
