SOURCE: 1998 mazda mpv 4x4 is not engaging and awd light

If your system is like my old 91 there was a relay and vacuum actuated switches. My problem ended up being one of those relays being bad. There were 2 relays and they had the identical part numbers so to test it I switched the wires from one relay to the other and it went into 4wd. Might be an easy fix. Check your manual and see what makes it go into 4X4. If you dont have a manual see if you can download your models manual at I think that my series was similar to yours so look on the firewall on the left side by the strut tower. You will see 2 sets of wires going up into rubber boots. The relays are in the boots. It took me quite a wile to figure it all out but the transfer case has a little motor and some contacts inside the end of the transfer case housing. Thats is where the magic happens but the relays are what make the magic happen. There are also vacuum switches on the drivers side strut tower. One engages the front end and one disengages the front end. There is a vacuum actuated system that works the front end and if the rod or vacuum goes bad and the system sees that the front end didnt engage this will also give an error. I would start at the transfer case relays first. Like I said, it is what gave me your exact described problem. Hope this helps... and dont forget to rate the fix. Thanks... Dale

SOURCE: Drivers side window has slipped off track 2006 mazda mpv

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanics.

SOURCE: My 2000 Mazda MPV heater fan works for 4 not for 1

You need to replace the blower motor resistor,it's in the heater box.Number 4 bypasses the resistor and all the other speeds go through it so it's the most likely problem.

Timing marks on the 3L motor are: (looking from the front of the engine) right side camshaft sprocket (1 dot on sprocket and the cylinder head); left side camshaft sprocket (1 dot on sprocket and clyinder head); crankshaft sprocket (arrow on the block and an inverted arrow on the face of the sprocket) and of course the timing belt cover

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...

I have a 1998 mazda mpv. the engine light is flashing 2 times per second and it seems to be puttering. what can the problem be? ive checked the oil and topped off the oil but im still having the same issue

the problem is doing damage to the catalytic converter...The only time the engine light will flash is when you are doing damage to the cat... dont drive it cats are extremely expensive to fix. I am assuming misfire.. replace spark plugs, wires and coil pack.. i would start off wit hthe wires and plugs first as they are least expensive
