Mazda B2500 Problems
A high idle speed can be caused by a poor connection at the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Connector replacement kits are available from Mazda dealers and possibly some Ford dealers.
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.
A dirty, or contaminated mass airflow (MAF) sensor can cause the engine to run poorly. There may be a Check Engine Light with trouble codes relating to the MAF sensor. In some cases, carefully cleaning the sensor element will fix the problem, but replacement may be required.

I bought my '99 B2500 in 2003 with 53K miles. I drove it from Orlando to Cape Canaveral everyday (100 mile round trip) for 7 years. I now work back in Orlando and the truck has 240K miles on it and still runs and looks like new. My wife is on me to trade it and get a new truck but I'm keeping it till the wheels fall off.
10 years old and runs like its new. I replaced the battery a year ago, other than that everything is fine. The "check engine" light came on yesterday (I almost fainted) but I put a quart of oil in it, came online to check that dis-connect and re-connect battery would re-set the light. It stays off.
