1996 Mazda B-Series Pickup B2300 SE 2dr Extended Cab SB
I was beyond shocked to find out that my engine was no good after my timing belt broke. My 1996 Mazda B2300 SE extended cab pickup broke the timing belt at engine idle. The mechanic informed me that the 2.3 liter engines in these pickups are considered to be interference engines, which means when the timing belt breaks, the pistons will destroy the and bend the valves in the engine, making the engine useless.
I like the truck. It's powerful and stylish. There is one thing you all should know that in both rear fenders rust so I took it and had it fixed at an auto body shop. But over all every thing is comfortable and reliable.
Shift on the fly.
Rear disc brakes and hitch. Fix rear fenders and front of hood so they don't rust.
I LOVE my little truck, I have NEVER had any problems with it! It is the BEST investment I put into ever. The most money I have put into it was the price for it. No problems what so ever. Going on 116,000 miles and still ticking. Gas is great, speed is great...I would DEFINITELY buy a second one for my fiancée if I could.
GAS, mine is a standard as well. I flew off the road with it a couple of weeks ago and not a SINGLE problem. This thing is SOLID. No scratches, no undercarriage damage!
I just want it to be bigger, but I just bought a single cab. So the size is actually my problem.
