Question about Cars & Trucks
Does it stop misfiring after it warms up??
Oil in the spark plugs, or bad spark plugs can cause this, as well as many other things if it does it even after it is warmed up.
It is a misfiring cylinder if it is running real shaky(I suppose it could be an exhaust manifold leak to if its not shaky) If it is shaking I highly suggest you seek a repair immediately as this can damage expensive components like Oxogen sensors and your very expensive Catalytic Converter!!!

We have the same problem we changed the fuel pump and it fix the problem for about a week, the van started puttering and didn't start until the 20th try. Now we are looking at the fuel filter. What a way to spend the 4th.

I have a very loud squealing noise in my 2003 mazda mvp engine when i accelerate. We removed the belts which would eliminate belts as the problem. And that's that it. If anyone has any info please let me know.

Sounds like a loose belt.
There are a few things that can cause a belt to slip like that.
The belt could be not tightened all the way. If it uses a sepentine belt with a tensioner, the tensioner could be bad. If it is not a serpentine belt, then you will have multiple belts and the one that is making the noise can be loose. Use something to pry it tight and tighten down the bolts holding the component th belt goes to.
It can also be a bad pulley. Pulleys have bearings inside of them, at times the bearings will go out and make the pulley hard to turn. You can usually find this easily by taking the belt off and turning the pulley with your hand. If it is hard to turn or makes a grinding noise when turned...it is bad and needs to be replaced.
Old belts can also cause this along with a belt that is wet. There is a spray on Belt Dressing that helps get rid of noisy belts, but I consider that a bandaid to a bigger problem.

It might be the universal joints in the driveshaft are worn out or busted. Or something might be wrong in the rear end or transfer case if its a 4x4.
