SOURCE: where are the spark plugs

Here's where I found mine on my 2000 protege.

First you're not looking for the right wire type! If you're looking for a standard 1/4" black wire that would normally run from a distributor cap to the plug you would be wrong... so:


Look right on top of the aluminum engine block and you will see the word Mazda and behind that you'll see your engine size. Between the two you'll see a round black rubber grommet and two black blocks with wires running through them (these are the ignition coils). If you look closely you'll see another rubber grommet under all the wiring. Your plugs are under all that wiring in about 4" deep wells.

First you will need to remove four bolts that hold the coils into place (2) per for a total of (4) bolts. If I recall correctly you will need a 10mm socket to get these out.

Before continuing mark each of the four cables with a number (1-4, left to right) so you don't get these mixed up.

Next pull on the rubber grommet labeled #1 (NOT THE WIRE) and pull it all the way out. You will see your plug waaaay down below.

Hints: Using a 6" extension on your socket remove all the old plugs first. When doing so use the rubber sleeve that is inside the socket to help get the plug out of the well.

When putting the new plugs in remove the rubber sleeve from inside the socket so that the socket can be pulled off the plug and out of the well.


Notes:
1.) Always use an anti-seize compound on the threads of the new spark plugs. This can be purchased along with the plugs.
2.) NEVER over-tighten. Snug is 'snuff.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Can't Find the spark plugs

Just follow the plug wires to the engine block then pull it out, your spark plugs will be recessed into the block. If they are coil packs, then look on the valve covers and you should see 3 different sets of wires that are pluged into the coil pack. Each coil pack are normaly held in by 2 10mm bolts. Take those off and the spark plugs are down that hole

SOURCE: How do I change spark plugs on a 2005 Mazda MPV

I just changed plugs on my 05' you have to remove the intake plentum to gain acsess to the rear plugs. First remove plastic cover from top of engine, remove intake hose to throtle body, unplug electrical connections to sensors on plentum, unhook vaccum lines, there are two coolant lines that need to unhooked from underneth throttle body, remove plentum support bolts, one on back and one on right side towards rear, a flash light and a mirror is useful for locating these bolts, there is also two vaccumn lines on the very back off plentum that have to be removed. remove clip on back off plentum that secures the hose that goes across the side of the plentum. Remove the six hold down bolts on plentum, and remove plentum. Spark plugs are acsessed by removing the coil packs for each cylinder, simply remove each coil pack hold down bolt and remove coil, plugs are underneth coil packs, you will need a long extension and a 5/8 spark plug socket to remove plugs.

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...
