Question about 1997 Mazda MPV

1 Answer

1997 Mazda MPV just purchased and did not come with owners manual. Has electronic 4wd on column stick... What gear does it need to be in to engage 4wd or can it be done while driving??? Also shows Diff Lock button option. Does this need to be pushed/on during the time the truck is in 4wd??? Or what is this button used for? Thanks for any assistance.

I have one of these vans you can put it in 4x4 anytime while driving or stopped or taken out of 4x4. the diff lock does not have to be on to have 4x4 .this **** locks in the rear diff,giving you all 4 wheels,this diff **** should be pushed when stopped,and taken out when stopped,it is always taken out before the 4x4 is . ps the 4x4 light on the dash should not be blinking if it is your acuator is stuck it can be freed up for 30.00

When do I have change oil for Mazda MPV 1998


If you drive normally then change your oil/filter every 5,000 miles. If you drive mostly city driving change it every 4,000 miles. If you drive mostly highway then change it every 6,000 miles. If you are using a synthetic oil then add 1,000 miles to each of these intervals. Use the correct weight oil for your 1997 MPV as listed in the owner's manual. Also use a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, or Bosch. Change your air filter every 30,000 miles unless you drive in dusty conditions and then change it more often.

4 WD clunking and clicking sound when turning left or right


Sounds like the front drive axles are worn.My 89 MPV had the same "clicling" noise with an occasional clunk.The reason you feel it more in 4wd mode is because power is now being transfered thru the worn axles. I replaced both sides for approx $375(Axles rebuilt were 130 for drivers side and 110 for passenger side the rest was labor)
