Question about 2005 Mazda MPV
2005 mazda mpv stumbles badly every now and then for about 1-2 seconds. Seems to happen when I decelerate off-throttle down to around 40-45mpg, then try to accelerate. It feels like the transmission is trying the top 3 gears at random. It smoothes out quickly and I won't see it again for days. Flushed the transmission, no change. No engine warning light; had it scanned anyway and nothing amiss.

Only way to know whats going on is to have the engine light checked with a OBD II diagnostic tool, there's a data link connector under the drivers side dash that it plugs into, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will check the engine light with a tester at no cost, for example auto zone, or you could take it back to the mechanic to see if he can diagnose the problem. The service engine light come's on when the pcm (powertrain control module) senses a problem. good luck !

I don't have this problem, but to slow the jackrabbit start of this machine place the gear selector in  position and you will be rewarded with a very smoth if slow start off the line. Excellent for very slipper conditions. Don't forget to upshift after you are up to speed.

Try unplugging your Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS) - you'll find it on top of the metal body immediately after the air filter. I went through an 18 month ordeal - replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, dropped fuel tank and cleaned it, ran 55 gallons of fuel injector cleaner through the system - nothing! After reading some blogs on this car/engine, gave the MAFS unplug trick a try. The car instantly corrected itself (when you unplug this sensor, the engine control module reverts to factory default, allows sufficient fuel into the engine for unitterupted performance.) However, if this corrects your problem, it's only a temporary fix. Run it about 3 days - it you notice soot in the tailpipe, the factory default is running too rich. Replace the MAFS.
