SOURCE: Mazda mpv O2 sensor wires?
Put some penetrating oil on them and let it soak overnight. This will break up the rust and other build up. Make sure that it is penetrating oil, you can get it at any automotive store.

SOURCE: O2 sensor
There should be two O2 sensors. If you look inbetween the engine and radiator following the exhaust manifold down to the exhaust pipe you should run into the 1st O2 sensor, following the pipe down stream under the vehical towards the catalytic converter you should find the second O2 sensor. The 1st O2 should be easy but the 2nd might be difficult depending on your abilities. Coils will depend on 4 or 6 cyls, 1 for each cyl. Repair man, go to, pep boys, napa, auto zone, advanced auto parts to name a few.

Try cleaning the Mass Airflow (MAF) Sensor. My 2002 Protege check engine light came on and it started stalling at stoplights if I didn't keep the engine revved a little. Manager at AutoZone checked the computer code for the light (P0171?), and it said it was running lean. He suggested I try the MAF sensor cleaner they have ($6.99) rather than replacing the 02 sensor, etc.; it made a *significant* difference. (I think I need to do it again to get it totally cleaned out, but the can is for at least 4 cleanings.) The MAF sensor is the large component that air goes through right after the air filter. If you don't have the repair manual for the car (search online for PDF's), you search for the part online to see what it looks like. Mainly, it's a tube about 4" across with some small wire things inside. The cleaner can said it was a 10 minute job; mine took 20 minutes, but only because the tube leading from the MAF sensor to whatever is next (a kind of bent elbow tube, with a couple of accordian-style ripples) tore, and I had to duct-tape that up to seal it. (Still haven't gotten that replaced - found them online for ~$40. Maybe this weekend...)

common causes for back firing, low fuel pressure, or restricted injectors, breakdown of secondary ignition coil, internal ignition coil arching, or a dead spot in throttle position sensor.
