Ignition Coil failure 04 MPV

My 2004 Mazda MPV with a whopping 55k miles on has had two coils replaced. "Technicians" and "Service Advisors" have stated that it is due to overheating. I must admit, it can get rather balmy in Seattle in February and May, considering thats when the coils decided to go. I may have to agree, even though I have no data to support the claim, that perhaps moisture can be a significant contributor. So I ask you, what is the solution? Move to Las Vegas, Phoenix or some other moisture free enviroment. I'm thinking after spending close to $1k in maintenance its time to trade in.

This is a known issue. Doesn't have to do with overheating or moisture, or whatever. Mazda is making a killing on replacing these coils. Going on 3rd set, luckily first two times were covered under warranty.

2001 mazda mpv will not start in cold and/or wet weather


Did you change the ignition cables as well? Ignition cables are made of carbon fiber conductors. They may look ok from the outside, but as they get older the carbon fibers get brittle and minute cracks form in the silicone jackets that lets moisture in. How many miles to you have on it? You may be due for new spark plugs also.

How to replace #1 ignition coil mazda mpv 2004


As this is on the rear bank the intake Plenum has to come off or at least be raised, did mine just a few days ago wasn't as difficult as I expected. However if you are going there replace all 3 coils while you are there and check the plugs as well. Allow 2-3 hours for first time.

How to change ignition coil on 2004 mazda mpv #2 cyl


No 2 is on the rear bank, to get at it the intake plenim has to come off, if going there it pays to do all 3 coils while there. If one has gone the others are prbably near thear end as well, and it's labour intensive to have to do again.

Transmission kicks shifting to second gear


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.

I don't have a solution to the problem, but Mazda should. I have replaced 3 different ignition coils in the last 3 months. I am spending more on repairs than I was in a car payment. Mazda has been no help at all!
