Just follow the plug wires to the engine block then pull it out, your spark plugs will be recessed into the block. If they are coil packs, then look on the valve covers and you should see 3 different sets of wires that are pluged into the coil pack. Each coil pack are normaly held in by 2 10mm bolts. Take those off and the spark plugs are down that hole

I have a mazda mpv 2000 minivan.problem code p0301 misfire detected cylinder#1

I'd check #1 spark plug.
Usually a misfire code "fix" is a spark plug, spark plug wire, or a coil pack / distributor.
Keeping it simple...I'd go with the spark plug first and then look at the condition of the wires.

Hope this helps...

Where are the spark plug wires on a mazda 2003 mpv with a v-6

there are no wires on this vehicle. i believe each spark plug has its own coil bolted on top of each plug

Where is spark plugs?

depending on the year and engine size, but they should be in the center of the valve cover under the coilpack.

Most of the newer cars have independent coil packs and they sit right on top of the plugs, there are usually 2 10mm bolts that hold them on.

Disconnect the electrical wire to the coil and remove the bolts and the coil should pull straight up.

Pull all your plugs (one at a time and replace afterwards) and make note of any plugs that maybe black or wet. Do a compression test on those cylinders. You made the plugs hotter with the new coil but the potential flooding amy have just caught up. If this is any help, please check good or fixya. Tahnk you
