Question about 1987 Mazda B-Series

1 Answer

Ok, so my girlfriend has a 1987 mazda B2200 that absolutely refuses to work. They've had the spark plugs replaced, the battery replaced, several licensed mechanics have looked at it, tried replacing or fixing something or another, and it still wont work. The engine will turn over but it won't actually fire. The fuel pump has also been replaced. I know it's a long shot, but any ideas would be appreciated.

I have a 1987 mazda b2200 and have ggone through all the parts on distrubutor and coil and the truck has no spark coming from the coil .. c an anyone save me from taking it to a shop and costing me...

If you have 12 volts ( or 7.5volts) to one side of the coil and nothing on the lead to the distributor then I would think that the coil is burnt out or faulty. If you have the voltage through the coil to the distributor but cannot generate a spark out of the coil lead then it points to the module in the distributor being faulty. IF you have spark out of the coil lead but not out of the distributor cap to plugs then check the inside of the distributor cap for cracks and /or the rotor button not turning

'88 Mazda 323 cranks, but won't start.

I wouldn't flood one cylinder and expect it to start. Try using a small amount of starting fluid in the air filter to confirm your plug wires are installed and working correctly.

Is there a fuse for 1987 Mazda B2200 fuel pump? If so, where is the fuse located?

The standard fuel pump on that Mazda is a mechanical pump. This is what it looks like unless somebody did a modification on it and fitted an electrical pump.

When im driving my truck,it starts to sputter and

I would try spark plugs and wires. If it was a fuel line you would see the leak or atleast smell it very strongly. If the problem still exists after new plugs and wires try the distributor cap.

87 mazda b2200 turns over no start. is gettin fuel and i see the spark on the plug working. what am i missin?

the only other things are compression and timing, and incorrect cam timing can cause low or no compression. Is the timing belt moving, is the camshaft turning? I will bet your trouble is the timing belt.

Try checking your Spark plugs (they MUST be the right type, clean, and properly adjusted: and try adjusting your timing. Either or both of these could cause this type of problem Hope it helps. If so, don't forget to rate the answer, will you?

I have 1987 Mazda B2200 2.2 ltre, turns, fires, no fuel psi.

I had something like this before. There is a fuel saftey switch near the gas tank right by the rear end. Its a roll over sensor and mine fell off the mount and I guess the truck thought it was upside down :)

Will not start, no spark

get spark tester and start testing from the spark plugs back. first hook it to aplug wire and check for spark if no spark ten hook it to the coil wire and check for spark if no spark then there is a chance that your coil or ignition module is bad if it is equipt with electronic ignition.
