In 1986, Mazda released the B-series of compact pickups. Starting in 1994, Mazda based the B-series pickups on the same platform as the Ford Ranger. This marked the second time Ford and Mazda teamed up to produce a pickup truck, as Mazda manufactured the Courier, Ford’s original compact truck. The 1998 Mazda B2500 came fitted with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 119 horsepower. Mazda recommended changing the spark plugs in the B2500’s engine every 60,000 miles. This basic maintenance item helps keep this compact pickup running as well as possible for years to come.
