1995 mazda b2300 help Sign In

Im trying to get some on id of the parts below so i can replace them . I noticed 2 hoses or wires that were cut in half in the pic they go on the top of those 2 ends where u see no wires i have no idea what it does or how i go about asking for what wires i need they seem to just plug in there on top and seem to go under the area where the oil goes . Any help ? would be greatly appreciated .

I believe in the pictures you are meaning the spark plug wires.

No, it won't run fine. That's a 2.3 Ford engine that take 8 spark plugs. It needs all 8 to run right. Start with plugs and wires but there may be more to that then it appears.

Re: 1995 mazda b2300 help Sign In

Should you use it one more time for work? You said it runs fine now? How long has it been like this anyway and why if you know? If a long time already if any damage (not sure) was done it's done but I can't make the decision for you.

If it's smooth, no funny odor out exhaust, steady idle with smooth flow out tailpipe you are probably ok to use it for work AYOR.

There are plugs at the other end that about can't be so happy so expect more than just a wire set to make it right,

Im not sure how , long its been that way i only noticed it today . It looks like the 2 wires got stuck or cut off on a wheel in there . I never noticed the truck running any different . Its very old with over 150,000 miles on it i use it for work .

Re: 1995 mazda b2300 help Sign In

Of course it's a judgment call. I couldn't guess how long it's been that way nor can you it seems. Need to look if some other thing is flying around that could have done that?

Old truck, JOB/WORK and a couple hours of run time for tonite? Weight the matter and use your head. The risk as I see it is if running poorly which can harm cat converter. If smooth and no odd odor it probably is ok to use it but I should never make the call for you like that. Might be making erratic sparks?

This is open web. I have to with common sense say don't use it till fixed as the primary suggestion,

T

Re: 1995 mazda b2300 help Sign In

PURPOSE, CONSTRUCTION, OPERATION
The Electronic Ignition System (EI) consists of a crankshaft mounted Dual Hall Sensor, two 4-tower coil packs, and an ignition module.
The EI eliminates the need for a distributor by using multiple ignition coils. Each coil fires two spark plugs at the same time. The coils are paired so that as one fires during the compression cycle the other fires during the exhaust stroke. The next time the coil is fired, the plug that fired on the exhaust stroke will fire on the compression stroke and the one that was on the compression stroke will fire on the exhaust stroke (the spark in the exhaust cylinder is wasted but little of the coil energy is lost).

Two coils are mounted together in a "coil pack". Each coil pack has two tach wires, one for each coil. Since there are two plugs per cylinder, two coil packs are required. One is called the Right Coil Pack (on right side of engine) and the other, the Left Coil Pack (left side). The Right Coil Pack and plugs operate continuously but the Left Coil Pack and plugs may be switched on or off by Electronic Engine Control processor. The Electronic Engine Control processor computes the spark angle and dwell for the ignition system.
