I will assume you have not had the timing checked on your Mazda.

The whistling sound could be too much air or air going into the engine at the wrong time. I can not be sure until the timing is checked and you are sure your firing order is correct. I would also check the wires and replace them along with the plugs.

Hesitation is a dead give away of one of the preceding. You can say that it is wasteful to replace all the items without knowing if they are bad. I look at it this way. I can replace most of those above for what a mechanic is going to charge me for 1 hour.

Any questions and I will be more than willing to walk you through any rough spots. Let me know.

It should show up with a P code as it misfires. If it doesn't, check the engine temperature sensor and O2 sensor.

Intermittent hesitation at steady speed.


It could be the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor in the cap, or an O2 sensor. does the check engine light come on?

96 Toyota Tacoma lacks take off power and stumbles


Any trouble light? Sounds like it might be misfiring during acceleration which is more related to ignition quality than timing. Check the spark plugs--if badly worn, replace them. Might need new spark plug wiring. Check the air cleaner. Replace the O2 sensor if the truck has a lot of miles. Look for loose or cracked vacuum hoses.

Check engine light still on


it sound more like you have a vacuum leak then a bad fuel pump that's why you keep getting lean codes have some one rev the engine slightly while you listen under the hood for the whistling noise the whistle is the vacuum leak

Hesitation or stumble during acceleration


take your car for a tune up
if they are carburetor type motors you may need your carbie cleaned and a tune up
if you clean it your self with carbie cleaner it may increase in idle speed this is nothing to worries about it is a simple adjustment
with a carburetor type motor they tend to idle higher when their cold this is the automatic choke kicking in and normally it should happen till the car is a bit warmer and the accelerator has been depresses
although a car should idle at 800 rpm my paddok car dose when it is cold it idles at 1200rpm i like it this way as the car warms up quicker as i will not drive a car while it is cold
hope this helps

Engine rattles at acceleration and hesitates


This sounds like your ignition timing is awry. You'll need a timing light to verify if this is correct. If that's OK the your valve clearances may be a little loose.
