#5 of 14 Mazda problems

Not quite sure about the "stuck in park" situation. Here's what came out of my problems. Since my truck was still under warrenty, I kept taking it back into the original shop. After the third time in, they found that there was a defective part in the transmission which caused the shifting between the gears to not correlate. The truck had started to really wind up before shifting and would make quite a thunking noise when shifting, then little lights would flash and not go off until the truck was turned off. The dealer had to order a part for correction but I just traded the problem in for a nice Dodge Magnum! Good luck. Hopefully your truck is under a warrenty.

I have an standard 01 Mazda B2500. While driving down the road both rear wheels locked up and it got stuck in 4th gear. Could not get out of gear until finally after rocking the truck back and forth it came out of gear and was able to shift. But drove about 1/4 mile and it did same thing. Still was able to get out of gear again. What would cause this?

I just bought a 1992 Mazda B series for my daughter and the transmission is bone dry.The guy I got it from just changed out the clutch and,for some reason didn't check to make sure the Salvage yard Tranny that he also replaced,had gear oil in it.
So when it made a funny noise upon starting it up he decided to sell it.
But,for some reason,I can not find a book or a person with the know how to tell me How Much Gear Oil does it take.I would really appreciate any help
The truck has also been lowered and now has 17" tires on it.The rims are 1200.00 not bad considering I got the truck for 500.00.Question is will the speed-o be off and how bad?Sorry guys but,I have no Idea and,I'm counting on your help.Thanks a million up front.

#9 of 14 1995 b2300 stalling/rev limt
Sep 23, 2008 (7:41 am)
I have a 1995 b2300 that when the rpm reach around 3300-3500 it stalls wheather it is in any gear or in neutral, like it where hinting the rev limiter. i can not be sure of the rpms because the truck does not have an RPM gauge. but i know it is not hitting the rev limiter because it will do the same if 5th gear and the speed of the truck goes below 50 or 4th gear and goes below 40 and so on. I thought it was the speed sensor but i changed it and no change, I believe it is an electrical problem but have no idea where to start. anyone seen this before?

Sorry, I don't have the solution. I am hoping that you have found out what was wrong. My 2001 B300 with 123,000 miles on it just developed the same problem today. Any info you have would be great. Thanks

i still do not have my transmission fixed. i changed the fluid and the filter and it did not help at all. I also checked my u joints and they are fine. over on the ford ranger forum there are many people who have the same problem with there transmisson. one said they had it serviced and the dealer could not find anything. im going to take mine to a shop to see if they can find anything. if you find out anything about yours let me know. it must be a simple problem because i still drive mine 75 miles a day with no problems other than the light flashing and the hard shift from first to second

I do not have good news for you! I took my truck to a very highly recommended trans shop that we have never heard anything negative about . The diagnosis on the
2001 Madza B300 was that the servo was melted and that meant the transmission needed rebuilt. They rebuilt it and put in a new converter at the cost of $1391.00 .
Good news is that the truck is running like brand new.The tech said that it had a ford transmission and that when they built the rangers and mazda trucks that they put the exhaust too close to the transmission and that it heats up and over time, melts the servo. He sees it all the time. Hope this info is helpful to you.
#13 of 14 2000 B3000 Mazda truck std transm problem
Mar 17, 2011 (5:06 am)
Lately, after driving the truck for awhile then stopping in traffic, it sometimes will not shift out of neutral until the truck is turned off and restarted. The problem happens more frequently now, and sometimes restarting doesn't work the first time anymore. Anyone have a similar problem/idea for what it is/solution?

Were you ever able to find out what the problem was? My 2000 B3000 started doing the same thing this week.
