1998 Mazda B4000 Problems

Runs Poorly, Possible Check Engine Light

A dirty, or contaminated mass airflow sensor (MAF) can cause the engine to run poorly. The Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.  MAF sensor related fault codes P0102 and/or P0103 may be stored. In some cases, carefully cleaning the sensor element will fix the problem. If not, replacement of the sensor may be required.

Crank but No Start Condition and No Spark

The engine may fail to start due to an electrically shorted sensor. Some of the sensors may internally short and not blow any fuses. A technician may find no spark and no operation of the fuel injectors in the diagnosis. One way a technician may isolate the defective sensor is by disconnecting sensors one by one to see if the engine starts.

Rough Running Idle, Erratic Speedometer Operation, ABS Light Illuminated, Check Engine Light, and Automatic Transmission Shifting Problems

Water intrusion into a connector (X309) located under the cab, beneath the driver's seat, can cause a rough idle, erratic speedometer operation, ABS Light and Check Engine Light illumination, and automatic transmission shifting problems. If needed, connector repair parts are available from Mazda dealers, and possibly some Ford dealers.
