How many O2 sensors go on the 2000 Mazda B2500SE 4 cylinder 2.5L? Where is the best place to buy them?

Two. Best place to buy is a matter of opinion.

You can probably get OEM online from ebay or Rockauto cheaply. You can probably get ones made by the OE manufacturer (the guys who made them for Ford, probably Denso or Bosch) at any parts store. You might pay a little more but have the ability to take them back to a physical store and deal face to face if you have a problem.

Check the three obvious things first

Spark
Fuel
Timing belt.

Quick question on the timing belt: could I just use any strobe light to check? I've got a headlamp with a strobe function, hoping I can just use that

Originally I had an Engine Light and MAF code.
Swapped out the MAF Sensor and cleared computer.
Ran alright for 3 days.


Checked:
Got spark
Can't find the little nozzle to check fuel.
Got Car to start, after pumping the gas peddle
After 3 days

Engine Light went back on. Autozone Code Check Results:
Soution is : Replace Overdrive Switch is there such a part on a standard transmission truck? Where is it located?

Hi, if you wondering why it takes me so long to come back, $0 & age ;) I have to save 1$ @ a time for parts. Any who @adsm08 02 Sensors are dble price in Mortar AutoParts than AutoRock. Question: which is the correct upstream length for 1999-2000 B2500 SE Manual Transmission 2DR Cab?
Upstream Length 15.4 or 10.6 inches.
Also which is better Bosch or Denso? My truck left me stranded in supper market lot :(

Answer: Correct Upstream Length is 10.6 Inch- the short one.

Where is Upstream O2 Sensor Located?
I want to pull it to see what length & connector type is on there? Found it
Answer:

No, you use a timing light (not quite the same as a strobe light) to check ignition timing. The timing belt has nothing to do with ignition timing. It keeps the crank and cam in time with each other.

No, no OD switch on a manual trans.

I don't know. Go get a tape measure.

Update swapped out both up & downstream Oxygen Sensors. The truck Hiccuped like a bronco around the block got it into my driveway as it seem to run out of gas. The Fuel Tank is Full. I don't have anyone to help me run test, so I have to figure out ways to do things by myself. Can't spend anymore money on parts. Can anyone recommend a cheap OBDII that works on this B2500, Is the TOPDON AL201 any good? Is this truck 24Volt? Is it ODBII compliant? When scanning will it be differentiated from Ford Ranger as 2000 Mazda B2500, its confusing many people say its the same???
Will this truck work with the following OBDll Code Scanner:

Thank you
