I've have'nt owned my B2300 very long so unfortunately I know nothing of it's history. Odometer shows 223,000 but does'nt work. Changed the oil and held at full level for a solid couple months. Then to my surprise (because it does'nt smoke) the level dropped down 3/4 of a quart over a 2 week period. Can this have anything to do with the black film on top of the engine ,hoses, etc.? I can't touch anything and not have black hands. Where is my oil loss coming from with no leaks ?

I have noises coming from tranny area when the clutch pedal is depressed. It requires a little extra effort to shift to second gear. Pedal has to be touching floorboard to shift properly.Is shifting notchy with these tranmissions? I car turn engine off and when I start it again, it won't shift in or out of gear(like clutch is not engaged). Only way to get it in first or reverse is turn engine off , then put it in gear.(this has only happened maybe 4 times since I've owned it , around 3 months).Clutch does not slip.Could the problem be my slave cylinder? If so, is this difficult to fix? First time owning vehicle with hydraulic clutch.

Check engine light is on and it came up with code p0340 changed it and reset it and the light is still on can you please advice?

What is required to get the dashboard apart to get to the switch ?

I need to know how to remove the dash board to get to the switch.

i pulled it out. how do i fix it.

Driving down the road my truck will lose power and it seems to misfire. No problem while accelerating

where are the bolts that hold the transmission in?

I have tried pulling it from the inside, it will not budge.

I have just replaced glow plugs and the last set only lasted a little while. Have had a multi meter on them which shows that power is still going to them after starting. Would this burn them out and how do I fix this problem

Sometimes runs bad when hot like maybe a misfire. Other then that no real symptom of anything?

I've changed fuel pump and fuel pump relay, still doesn't start sometimes! And like now, it won't start at all! I was told that the computer was the only other alternative! You can hear the pump come on and it always starts, but when you don't hear it come on, you know it will not, may be 10 minutes or days before it will start up! Thank you for your time and help.

I have a b2300 mazada that will start off running then bog down to zero miles a hour after few minutes it run fine till you turn it off..i have had the fuel pump and filter check.they have check the mass air filter sensor any other possible solutions

I have replaced CKP AND CMP sensors, plugs,plug wires, and timing belt. If it does quickly throttle it won't idle down it runs about 4000 rpm and I have to take out key to stop it.

tried jump start with Buick - more lights light up on dash, but same thing - click click click = won't start.
I cleaned the battery terminals and charged the present battery. Still, won't start. I need to know where the starter & solenoid are located, to remove and take to auto part store to test. Any comments greatly appreciated.

I too have a mazda bravo b2600 1994. That seem to back fire under bonnet and stall and now cranks but wont start. I did start the day later for about 5 seconds and stop again. I don't have any books or diagrams to go with it and would like to change the fuse but don't know where it. I am also wondering if this could be contaminated fuel and want to put a little Metho in the fuel line but again not sure which one.
