Mazda Pickup Trucks While Mazda may not be known for their trucks, they have always produced quality reliable trucks for both hauling cargo, or simply crusing.

Smile Hesitating and missing

Hi 1998 Mazda B4000 4.0 I bought this truck and it would hesitate at times and miss around 2000 rpms on street or hi-way. Checked Pc, Iac, Egr, Tpc, Maf sensors, and all were working. This issue did not have a error code. I found that I had a Ground problem ( Low Voltage at the fuel pump ) After cleaning the grounds (next to dr side kick panel behind the cover There is a ground connection ) also the Fuel pump connection under the truck (using electrical cleaner) So far I have not experienced any more problems. PLEASE CHECK THE SIMPLE THINS FIRST DIRTY OR BAD OR LOOSE CONNECTIONS B-4 GOING OUT AND SPEND A LOT OF MONEY. IHope this helped some of you that may be having similar problems.

Go to a Ford Ranger forum, that's really what your truck is.

I'd change spark plugs, air cleaner, fuel filter, start with that. Clean all your electrical connections too.
