This truck is a five speed, four cylinder, with two plugs pec cylinder. The timing belt broke. Is this an interference motor, could it have bent the rods?
Timing belt broke on 1998 Mazda B2500
My information says it is not an interference engine and says " inspect at 120.000 miles replace if necessary" I would replace it at 120.000 for sure.
Our Mazda 1999 B2500 did the same thing, the timing belt needs to be replaced. At the cost of $250-$350 depending on where you go.
