Question about Mazda B2600

1 Answer

I have a 87 Mazda B2600 4x4 with a 2.6 engine that I bought a rebuilt cylinder head for because it had a small hole in it on #2 thus leaking compression. There is a note in the box that states to adjust the jet valves to 0.10, not preadjusted, but my question is how do you do that properly. Thanks

With each cylinder at TDC adjust the jet valve, it is no different then adjusting the intake or exhaust valves.

Mazda drifter b2500 WL engine has knocking sound misfiring and white smoke after cylinder head was replaced.please help

I could be wrong but white smoke usually oil and black smoke is usually gas. If that is correct and you changed the head you may have a leak from the head gasket, or it is not torqued correctly. Your valves may not be adjusted correctly. The timing could also be off. Just some of my thoughts. Sorry I can not be for sure.

How do I check for a blown head gasket on my 1990

Pretty much same answer as I gave for 87 Reliant see below. Shops have equipment to do cylinder leakage test. Do basic stuff below before doing last test ...cylinder leakage...which costs $$$.

Main point you are losing antifreeze/water. Check to see if you have water on the dipstick mixed in with oil. If so...probably a head gasket. If oil looks normal..... Before you do any test, tighten every hose connection. Check for loose connection into antifreeze reservoir. Sometimes there are small cracks on top which lets out pressure from cooling system. Look for leaks on water pump and radiator. Look at spot where you park the car...any liquid on floor? Not sure?..Put piece of cardboard under car to see if liquid is dripping from car. No leaks?...Start with a pressure test of the system. The pressure test is simply equipment that replace the radiator cap, a hand pump connected to it then air is pumped into cooling system. You watch the gauge to see if pressure is dropping. If pressure does not drop ..problem is most like a worn radiator pressure cap or stuck thermostat.. Do not buy the kind with button on cap to push down and release pressure. get original type and correct pressure. If overheating still, thermostat could be stuck, replace. Overheating of engine causes vapor lock, bubbles in fuel, which causes car to stall and kill. When cools off, fuel cools down and fuel will flow through fuel system again. Large amount of oil disappearing with overheating also sounds like head gasket or cracked head....Tighten up all bolts to gaskets, look for oil leaks on garage floor or driveway. If engine has developed a miss when running, pull plugs out and look for wet fouled plug. If antifreeze leaking into cylinder...plug tip will be whitish, if oil leaking into cylinder, grimey oil fouled. Do compression test on cylinder that is fouled and that will pinpoint if bad head gasket or cracked head. When doing compression test, radiator cap is removed and you listen to hear bubbles in radiator from the cylinder leaking into cooling system. 87 Reliant not worth pulling engine apart if head gasket or cracked head. Best oil treatment to reduce oil consumption is "Engine Restore" Used on my 58 Impala 348 tri power for 28 years. If I did not add it after oil changes it used oil and smoked....I swear by it for ANY engine after 100,000 miles.

Keeps Blowing head gaskets

You need to strip the engine down and check the top of the block (deck) for cracks and have it resurfaced, Do the same for the cylinder heads, check them for vcracks and have them resurfaced. Use felpro gaskets.

My truck is blowing white smoke and will idle for about twenty minutes and then cut itself off.

white smoke means there is a presence of water/coolant at your combustion chamber. common cause of this is blown head gasket and/or small cracks/holes in your cylinder head. if this happens, water will not circulate properly in your engine thus the vehicle will shutdown due to over heating.

what to do:
1. replace head gasket. this is quite not a DYI fix since it will require some tools like torque wrenches and some knowledge on timing.
2. if replacing the head gasket does not solve your problem, have your cylinder head resurfaced at the nearest car service center. resurfacing makes sure that your cylinder head perfectly fits with the crank case.

My kia sedona 2005 changed head cilynder and still mix the coolant, and expel white smoke through the muffler

If you have changed the cylinder head, and the head gasket, and presumably have you brought your cylinder head to a machine shop and shaved the head cylinder, changed the oil thoroughly? A hydraulic test could be done to the head and engine block if the if that coolant kept on leaking to the lubricant! If ur engine is diesel, take note of the coolant that passes through the oil cooler, the zinc metal somewhat eroded by the coolant and erode the metal, thus it creates holes from the oil cooler!
Hope that helps u out!

My car toyota corolla ve 1998 has misfire code engine light on and cylinder #2 low compression, how to fix it

Use a cylinder leak down test. obviously a blown head gasket or valve intake or exhaust, just dont throw a cylinder head on it, especially #2. Why because the cause is a partial EGR system. When the system gets plugged the temperature of the cylinder head reaches it maximum. There it causes and advance and precombust on that cylinder head and BAM it goes either you have a hole in the block, or hole in the piston or kinder yet a burnt exhaust or burn intake. Heres the fix remove the cylinder head there you can inspect for damaged intake or exhaust valves clean it and look closely you will see crack, Then look at the piston carefully make sure there is not pits(small holes)

My mazda tribute is overheating alot

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There are few things that can cause the vehicle to heat. Please check the following to resolve the issue:

- A faulty water pump can cause the car to overheat. If the water pump is faulty the coolant will not circulate properly on the engine which can result to overheating. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.

- A worn out or damaged radiator hose. Just a small hole on the hose can cause the vehicle to overheat so have it replaced.

- A weak radiator blower motor. If the blower motor is weak it tends not to cool down the engine so have the blower motor replaced.

These are the few things that can cause the car to overheat so please have the following be checked.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My mazda etude is having water in one of the spark plugs

Remove that plug and turn engine over. Does water shoot out of the spark plug hole? Head gasket leak, cylinder-to-coolant channel side. Do you see any water vapor or actual water out of your exhaust when you first start it?
