Follow the steps in this video to see how to fix minor coolant (antifreeze) leaks in your 1990 Mazda B2200. Leaking coolant is one of the more common types of fluid leaks on B2200s. Engine coolant (which is also called antifreeze or anti-freeze) moves through the inside of your B2200's engine and keeps it from overheating. Coolant can leak from the reservoir or from the hoses, in 1990 B2200s with the 2.2 liter engine, coolant leaks are most likely to occur where the hoses connect to the engine. The video above shows you where the coolant reservoir, hoses and connections on your 1990 B2200 Base are located and the steps needed to fix minor leaks.
A few things to note about coolant is that it is sweet tasting and highly toxic, so it can end up in the dog's stomach pretty quickly. If you ignore a small coolant leak long enough, you will run out of coolant, which leads to an overheated engine and other serious, but highly avoidable, problems. In many 1990 B2200s, an anti-freeze leak can cause the temp sensor to record high engine temperatures. Always protect yourself with safety glasses and gloves when working with the coolant on your B2200.

Daytime running lights, sometimes referred to as DRLs or DTRs, are lights that switch on automatically when your 1990 Mazda B2200 is turned on and in drive. Since the daytime running lights are on whenever you are driving your B2200, they are often the first bulbs to burn out. The video above shows you how to change the daytime running lights in your 1990 B2200. These bulbs grow dimmer by over 20% over time, therefore we recommend changing both bulbs on your B2200 at the same time, even if only one bulb is burnt out - this will allow both DRL bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the old DRL bulb from appearing dimmer than the new one.
When you change the daytime running light on your B2200, it is important not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb. Some studies indicate that driving with your lights on can reduce accidents by 18 - 34%, driving with your DRLs or headlights on the day can reduce your chance of getting in an accident.
