Question about Mazda B2300

1 Answer

Truck won't start.

I have a 2002 Mazda B 2300 pickup. Standard transmissioin with 60K miles. I shut the engin off. When I tried to restart it there was no response. dash lights came on, seat belt buzzer sounded but not even a click. I have a new battry and have checked all the fuzes in the dash fuze box. Any help would be apprieated. Lee

    check your clutch pedal position switch. the truck will not start without clutch pushed in. you are pushing it in, but switch needs attention.

Check your starter selenoid by jump the battery side of the terminal to the small post next to the battery side. It should send the signal to the starter and rotate the engine. If it doesn't your selenoid is bad. You can bench test your starter by removing it and using jumper cables. Connect the battery post on the starter to the red side of the cables and the black to the starter housing at the bolt hole. The go to the positive and negative of the battery. Starter should rotate, if not, replace it. I usually replace the selenoid and starter together.

  1. lost 12vdc power to EFI.
  2. if random stalls its not lost compression
  3. bad spark (tuneup time?) lost spark , kills all gas engines.
  4. bad fueling. too much or too little.
  5. if all above is good, then the ISC is stuck closed. lean it.

Accord starts shuts off

stalls. engine stalls. Stalls only HOT. and fails hot soaked.
stalls have 4 paths ?
1: lost DC power, to EFI (spark and fuel brains) "loose fuse?"
2: lost compression only hot (compression gauge to rescue)
3: lost spark or the classic, never doing 60k mile tuneups.
or the classic EGR stuck open , again not ever cleaned at 60k
4: bad fueling. (too much floods, it and stalls it, or tool lean it dies)
(or stuck closed ISC) we clean it at 60k with the EGR. as part of the 60k service points listed in the missing operators guide. (bet)

in that order, this 4 macro paths to , no stalls.
do you want me to guess which of 50 parts are bad.?
or do the 4 tests. to find which path it is.
one takes a month, other 1hr.

one more test. can you save this stall with a fast right foot?

and how easy was it to save, if true.

After I drive my truck (1990 pickup, V-6, 4-wheel drive) for a while (20 minutes or more) and then shut it off, when I come back it won't restart and I have to jump off the truck or if I let the truck...

next time this happens get someone to hold the key to start if manual with clutch in and tap on the sterter with a hammer or something. if it starts you can just replace the starter contacts or the starter

I just bought a 1994 mazda b2300 series i like the truck the problem i have is it will start fine in the mornings but after the engine is hot it will not restart until it cools down i changed the ignition...

Check the engine coolant temperature sensor for proper operation. If the sensor is disconnected, wires to it broken, or the sensor is stuck in full cold mode, it will tell the computer to schedule fuel for full cold operation--which is way too much fuel for a warm engine. The engine then floods out and won´t restart until the extra fuel evaporates.
