1993 Mazda B2200 from North America - Comments

27th Jul 2009, 12:13

On my 16 birthday I got a 93 Mazda B2200 5-speed. It is a great truck and is running better than any truck I see nowadays.

I have not had any smoking on in the morning when I start her up. I live in Florida and I don't think it gets cold enough to have that problem.

My question is how cold does it need to be to have this problem?

And I agree with everyone; it is one hell of a little truck.

Have a 1993 B2200, carbed, 136,000 miles.

Smokey mornings, changed valve seals, still smoked, thought I may have damaged a seal during install, changed all seals again, still smoked in the mornings, changed the rings. never another problem. Hope this helps.

I just bought a 1993 Mazda B2200 carbureted 5-speed. I let her sit over night and HELLO! Before I knew it, I was smoking out the entire neighborhood with thick white smoke. The smoke finally went away about 4 minutes later. I then started to drive it, and it started to "bog out" and lose power from 1st to second gear... what should I do to fix the problem? Does it need carb work? Rings or valve job? Or should I just dump some sort of cleaner in it?

Have a 1992 B2200. Pulled the head due to smoking, found one cracked chamber and one stripped plug. After reinstalling everything, the rise in compression blew rings. I should have listened and done the rings as well!!

I have the white smoke problem too, but it's not burning no oil. I noticed that it starts. After about 1 minute after starting, it will idle, then you could hear something click on and the idle would change slightly, and the smoke would start to billow. I think it has something to do with the emissions control system. Also, I ran a wire from the fuel pump directly to the fuse panel so it comes on when I turn the key on. There is a connection right in the cab where the cab and box meet. Be careful, there are 2 wires that are the power to the pump; one backfeeds to the computer; it has to be connected also, or the truck won't idle. This will solve the sudden quitting syndrome caused by overcomplicated fuel pump wiring. Also check the pump ground wires at the rear on the frame (one on each side).

I just got a 1993 Mazda B2200, mine smokes too. It has from the time I bought it with 120K miles on it.

It gets around 26 MPG and runs like a top.

I guess if I wanted to save money and get rid of the smoke I should sell it and get a little Toyota with a R22 FI engine. Or, I can just drive it and keep an eye on the oil level. If the neighbors don't like it I'll tell them that it is killing all of the bugs in the neighborhood.

My truck is doing this to around 80 to 100. I'm trying to figure out what it is. Any help would be great.
