About three months ago I was travelling with my Mazda MPV 2003 at 60 MPH on the highway and the van just turn off. This just happen again last week. Pull over to side of the road and MPV will start up. Went to the local Mazda Dealer and their computer hook up can not find the problem. Can this be fuel filter problem? Can this be electrical problem?

By default, your automatic transmission has a torque converter that is the main focus to your car\truck changing gears. I had one break on me in a Nissan Sentra and was glad I was close to where I was going because I would have otherwise been stranded.
If you live in a mountainous area and do a lot of traveling going up and down hills, your best bet, as long as you are above 58 mph(like going thru Denver on Interstate 70 and going west thru the Rockies, then it is okay to leave the overdrive on. I would, however, recommend that going up an incline of more than 30* then you may want to turn it off until you have reached a sustainable speed. If you are towing more than 800 lbs on a trailer on an incline of more than 20* then you would want to turn the overdrive off as the torque converter putting your vehicle into overdrive with a heavy load can cause the converter to snap within the transmission and you would be dead in the water.
If you live in a more plain-like state then the only time you really NEED to turn off the overdrive is if you are hauling a large amount of cargo any real distance or rarely get over 4300 rpm due to such short traveling distances. Overdrive function is primarily used to cut down on the amount of fuel needed in order to take long journey on Interstate or State highways that allow for speeds faster than 55 mph.
Hope this helps.

I've seen this problem before in other cars. Your electric fuel pump is cavitating and instead of putting just fuel into your fuel line it is putting in an air fuel mix. It will only get worse. To be sure check your fuel line pressure. I'm sure you will find it low. If it is replace the fuel pump.
