This is a known issue with certain '03 and '04 MPV transmissions; my 2003 had the same problem. There is a Mazda technical service bulletin about this - 05-003/004 (Shift Shock). You need to take the van to a qualified shop and have them flash the transmission control module (TCM) with new firmware.

I had this done. It did not completely fix the problem but it did reduce its occurrence.

Where is the transmission fluid temperature sensor on a mazda mpv 2001


don't know if your vehicle even has a trans temp sensor. if it did it would be located internally inside the trans pan in valve body. check your trans fluid level, color, and smell. worn trans fluid will cause trans shift issues. burned trans fluid is an indication your clutches are burning and slipping.

I own a 2003 Mazda MPV. I have owed the van for 2 years when first purchased after a few months I started to notice a faint noise from the back of the car when I when shift from 1-2 gear. Well I brought it...


Most transmission shifter ( where you shift) has a linkage control to shift gears in the transmission. Those joints from the linkage have bushings made of rubber. Once these rubbers were worn down and torn, the noise from metal friction from linkage can give you that intermittent noise. When the gap from the linkage joint enlarges in lieu of the bushing space, it causing the engagement of shifting is off from original position that was why you are experiencing "binding in other gears"
Have a different shop to check out these linkage control bushings and replace them. The bushings are cheap and it probably takes about 2 hours the most to replace them. This will save you a lot of money on spending on unnecessary repair. Good Luck.

My 2004 Mazda MPV skips upon acceleration, only has 33,400 miles.


could be your torque convertor and if it is experiencing some chatter in the shifting then most likely you need to go to the transmission shop for a shift kit which is inexpensive.

Transmission shifter is "frozen" it won't move


It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.

If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.

If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.

Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.

Good luck.

Driving problem


When it does start going if the RPMs are raising but will not shift then most likely the transmission is slipping and needs to be rebuilt. If one or more shift solenoids are stuck/not working than it will only stay in one gear and will not shift. Most likely you are looking at a new or rebuilt transmission.
