Question about 2003 Mazda MPV
Out of the blue, my MPV is shaking and making a jumping movement when in idle mode. It's worse in drive and reverse but does it when in neutral too. It's driving, but I can feel the jumping then too. The whole engine is shaking when I pop the hood. The check engine light just came on too, blinking. I had an oil change last week, and no one said they detected any other problems. I'm afraid it's something with the transmission...any advice? I have had this issue on my MPV 2003, I have it "repaired" at dealer several times since owning the vehicle, the dealship claims it is a coil. It's ridiculous because it is always a couple of hundred dollars to repair. I do notice this problem occurs when it is damp rainy outside (engine light starts blinking, stays on), and if I don't get it repaired get this.... it eventually goes away (a couple of days of driving it). Lovely peice of **** isn't it? I hate mazda, never to own one again!!!
We had a very similar problem on our 2003 mazda mpv. at first we were also told coils. we changed all the coils out and the problem came back. we found out that it was a leak in the egr valve and gasket. there was also another leak found after that. when the leaks were fixed, the problem stopped. i suggest checking for leaks in your engine, this could be the problem.

It could be your engine mounts if 1 or more of the rubbers on the mounts have collapsed then this could cause the vibration you describe
