#9 of 18 1995 b2300 stalling/rev limt
Sep 23, 2008 (6:41 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 18 2000 B3000 Mazda truck std transm problem
Mar 17, 2011 (4:06 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.

I have a 1999 Mazada B3000 automatic transmission. It will not go anywhere if I start off in Drive. I have to start off in 2nd gear then put in Drive after I get going. I have changed the transmission filter and the fluids and still have the same problem. are there any suggestions?

Did you ever get to the bottom of this issue. I have a Y2000 B2500 that is hard shifting from 1st to 2nd and over-revving occasionally between shifts.
Rebuild recommended so far, but I don't want to throw money at it if it is something easy to repair.

I have a 1999 mazda b2500 automatic transmission which just a couple of days ago started doing the exact same thing. Won't move in drive but put it in second is fine and when I get going drive is fine but when I stop have to shift back to second to go. Were you able to get yours fixed and if so please tell me what you had to do.

Was not able to figure it out. Tried replacing the solenoid and a couple of other small things. I am going to have it rebuilt by a mechanic if possible.
