SOURCE: replacing neutral safety switch on 2000 mazda mpv probably has the best info for your MPV. I use it for my 2000 MPV and it hasn't failed me yet. Mazda wants $250 for a shop manual and Haynes hasn't written one as of yet. My MPV right now won't come out of 2nd gear because of (I'm hoping) a bad PRNDL Range Select Switch.

SOURCE: neutral safety switch

It is located on the side of the transmission, follow the shift cable down to it you will recognize it because it has a electrical wire comming off it and either a shift lever or shift cable going to it.

4cly tacom w/auto trans won't stat unless i jiggle shifter.

Check your neutral safety switch by using a OBD II code reader. This switch prevents the truck from starting unless the shifter is in park or neutral. I think the code you're looking for is P1780.

I have a 98 toyota tacoma sr5 4 cylinder..i have replaced the battery,starter and now the ignition switch..still have problem starting..i already spent $340 on parts

You are using the "shotgun" method of diagnosis-shooting parts at it until it's fixed.I refused to do this as a dealer tech,which is why I don't fix cars for a living any more.(In the auto dealer warranty repair world,you are paid for replacing parts,not for diagnosis time.) However,since you have replaced the most expensive pieces already,why not round it up with a neutral safety switch(or clutch pedal switch-you didn't specify an auto or manual trans)? I had many automatic trans vehicles that would not start in park,but would in neutral.Some "PRNDL" switches are adjustable,not sure about yours.If you do have an auto trans,try cranking the starter while pushing/pulling the shifter.If this makes the trouble come and go,you are probably on the right track.

My tacoma shifter "floats" in and out of gear while driving

My cars are the same way. You can shift in and out of neutral without holding the release button. I'm not sure if it is a safety feature or not, but it's a standard feature.
