If the trouble came back then there is something more. check the fuel system: filter, injectors, air/fuel ratio, etc. also better to check/replace the other 3 coils. sometimes electrical connections may be loose.

Ignition coils is the most common failure parts for MPV. There are 6 of them in your engine. Now probably few of them are bad again. I don't certain think the # 1, 2, 3 are bad since the recent replaced ones also could be bad to.
If you buy individual one will cost you around $57 each. http://sd.autohausaz.com/autohausaz/detailw.jsp?sid=nesyyx55nrrgf5bhpv0yzoi4&partner=autohausaz&year=2004&make=80&model=18094~~~10000091~~~@MPV&category=240798@Engine%20Electrical&part=240858@Ignition%20Coil
If you buy all of 6 will save your money. I'm not a seller. I found this information to help you to control the cost. Otherwise the bill will be costing a lot. This is why we are coming to Fixya, right?

Have the mechanic replace all of 6 after you got the part and ask him to weed out the bad ones then keep the good one for later use. Good luck.

My 2005 Mazda MPV is skipping. It has been tested and found that cylinder 3 is causing the problem. Can cylinder 3 be changed with out changing the others?


If you have individual ignition coils (COP Ignition)
you can change any coil that you want & you don't
need a repair shop

Buy them from Rock Auto.Com
cheaper than auto parts store & you
get to choose your brand & price

If the PO300 codes are wrong just put back the
#3 coil & walk the new one until you find the bad one

Codes don't tell you what is wrong
That said PO 300 cylinder codes are
okey sometimes,other times you need
professional software to look at cylinder
misfire counts & then sometimes just walk
the new one.

The car has to be driven for a coil to break down
It has to get hot & go 29 miles if bad & sometimes
only act up once every 2 weeks with no rhime or reason

Where can i find the spark plugs on a 2004 mazda mpv?


Changing the plugs on the 04 MPV is a pain.

The front three plugs are easy to get to - just remove the black plastic cover over the engin block(3 screws) and they're right there (but deeply recessed in the block).

But you have to remove the manifold to get to the back three plugs. and this kinda sucks. you will need a new manifold gasket set also....... I hope this helps

Coil problem in what order are they (#spark plug) ??? back 1-3-5 / front 2-4-6 ????


In my 2004 MPV...

Back, from LEFT to RIGHT: 1-2-3
Front, from LEFT to RIGHT: 4-5-6

I really hope your bad coil is in the front (4-5-6).
Rear ones are not funt o get to. Not impossible, but a pain. My No.3 went out this Summer, so I know. I changed all three coils in the back, and refreshed ALL plugs.

Hope this helps!

2003 mazda mpv stalls several times while driving, all dash lights come on, need to coast to a stop, problem occurred once a week for three weeks and then happened three times within a mile, re-started...


i would ask the mechanic to check the ignition switch for pitting ....i had this problem with my honda accord for a long time until i finally just switched it for the second time and sanded it down to the point that it would touch but not keep contact to make the pitting .... hope this helped

My 2004 mpv skips during acceleration and sometimes when i stop at a red light, but the check engine light never comes on. i changed the spark plugs but it didn't help.


I can almost guarantee its the ignition coils. Its common with the 2004 mazda mpv. They are very expensive but I just changed my #3 coil and boy im I glad I did that. With the Mazada mpv 2004 hopefully a check engine light will come on so you can see which ignition coil it is. Once you find out change it and the spark plug that goes under it. If its one of the back ignition coils its gonna be expensive or time comsuming. I would change all three coils in the back and all three Spark plugs so that you dont have to worry about them again since you have to open the manifold just to get to them. I recomend taking it to a auto shop that you trust. While your back their you can change the pvc valve and bromet I think its called (the cushion for the pvc valve). Its all in the same area. The ignition coil could run from about 45 dollars each to about 65 depending on where you go. One more thing, if the check engine light comes on you have to check it quick because it cancells it self out if the ignition coild is not that bad yet. the sometimes it stalls and sometimes it doesnt syndrome. you take it to the shop and it doesnt happen again until your home thing lol. Thats just the beggining of it going bad.

After I changed my Iginition coil and all three spark plugs in the back of the engine the car runs like a race horce. no more stalling. im very happy I did that. It cost me about 125 for the coil and the three spark plugs and a new thermometer for another issue. and about 200 bucks to put them in, I think I got a good deal considering most dealers in nyc charge 100 bucks an hour to work on your car. Its not that big a deal of the work. You just have to know what your doing. It took him about 5 hours to complete the job. I hope this was helpful.

Does 2004 Mazda MPV ES equip with a cabin air filter?


(cabin filter solution) Their is an cabin airfiliter behind the glove compartment (2004 mazda mpv) which is very easy to take off. Replace the airfilter or clean it with soap and water. Open the glove box and on the bottom left had side of the glove box if you apply enough presure on it by pulling it out towards you and slightly down it should pop off. The right side should slide out immediately following the left side pop. All it is, is a fork like claw holding on to a bar. On the ride side is a bar sliding into a hole. That should do the trick. After the first time its a sinch.

#5 cylinder misfire


I have a corolla and had #4 cylinder misfire also diagnosed at autozone. After changing the spark plugs, problem persisted, along with the same error code, so they recommended changing the spark plug wires, and that is what fixed it. I would have changed the rotor cap too, but was low on dough. Glad that was not the problem.
