1999 Mazda B-Series Pickup Overview

Based on 3 reviews
Buyers who walked onto a Mazda car lot in 1999 to pick out a new B-Series pickup truck had a lot to choose from -- so much, in fact, that they could be excused if they became a bit confused at the extent of the offerings. More than 15 different trim packages were available, including a long list of models with the extended cab, equipped with both two-wheel and four-wheel drive, and in either two-door or four-door versions. Most came with the base SE trim package.
Standard cab models were also available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive versions, with either the SE or higher-end SX trim packages, and with two or four doors.
Engine choices included the base 119-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder, the 150-horsepower 3.0-liter V6, and the 160-horsepower 4.0-liter V6. For the most part, a five-speed manual transmission was standard, though a few models (such as the extended cab 4.0-liter two-wheel-drive models) added a five-speed automatic to the standard equipment package. And for other models, the five-speed automatic or a four-speed automatic was optional (though not across the entire line).
Whew! That was a lot to choose from, and probably attested to the popularity of Mazda's compact pickup truck. Perhaps it was also a sign of the competition in the light truck field in the late '90s. Mazda competed by offering durable, well-built trucks that required few repairs other than routine maintenance, handled well over the road, and offered a streamlined, swept-back style that appealed to buyers of import trucks.
For many of the trucks, the list of standard features was relatively sparse, including power brakes (anti-lock in the rear), dual airbags, intermittent windshield wipers, and an AM/FM audio system. But the add-ons were plentiful, and included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, an anti-theft alarm system, and a CD player. Opt for the high-end B4000 trucks, and you got a leather-trimmed steering wheel, an upgraded audio system, alloy wheels, and cruise control. Perhaps those options made choosing a B-Series truck just a bit easier for some buyers.

I need to know what is involved to remove the oil pan to replace the oil pump. Does the transmission need to come out for clearance in removing the oil pan? thanks to anybody who can advise me.
