No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

2001 mazda mpv will not start in cold and/or wet weather

Did you change the ignition cables as well? Ignition cables are made of carbon fiber conductors. They may look ok from the outside, but as they get older the carbon fibers get brittle and minute cracks form in the silicone jackets that lets moisture in. How many miles to you have on it?

Where is the starter on a 2001 mazda mpv, and is there anything special you have to do to take it off

It's on the side near the bottom of the engine. Follow the positive wire (red) from the battery as it goes straight to the starter.
