1988 Mazda B2200 2.2
Affordable gas saving truck
Things that have gone wrong with truck.
High idle in mornings that will last sometimes 30 minutes.
Tapping noise from engine for the last 9 months. Took truck to a mechanic and he said it was a sticky lifter. Tapping has quieted down a little since adding some oil additives, but is still there. For the last few months car will sometimes surge when accelerating. Car has also died out a few times when I started to accelerate in fourth gear. This morning I was on my way to work and the truck just died on me in third gear. Truck will turn over, but it will not start. I do not think the timing belt has ever been changed. I do not know if its the timing belt, carburetor, air/fuel solenoid, etc? Any and all help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Nice little truck that is great on gas.
Good runner as long as you take care of it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

That sounds like the ICM (ignition control module). You can find it in the distributor, 2 screws and slide it out. Approximately $85 for the part and 2 minutes to replace.

I had the same prob with my truck till today. THANK YOU so much for this info... it really worked... My truck has been down over 3 weeks till today, and I fixed it myself; it really is that easy a fix. BTW I am a 53 year old gramma.
