In the past I have seen Ignition coils causing this
This motor is also known for corroded pcv fresh air hoses

when given gas it sputters - 89010018
there are two on your vehicle
may be slightly different location on your vehicle
you did not specify motor size
the hoses go from near the snorkle (the accordian looking hose) to the valve covers

Good luck

Check you MAF sensor, Mass Air Flow. Could be dirty and it keeps the air goes in more then fuel and the car runs lean and also check the spark plugs and wires for any misfiring. Good luck

This sounds like an ignition problem. Check the ignition coil. Low spark voltage can cause this. As well, the amplifier module in the HEI distributer could be at fault.

You might have some compression issues from bad piston rings or worn valves. Could have a leaky vacuum hose or intake. Throttle body or carburetor may be dirty as well. Check the Map sensor. Hope this gives you some good ideas.

My 2003 Mazda mpv is started it sputters and when given gas it bogs down

First i would replace the fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged it will not let ample amount of fuel to the engine. Very cheap part and usually is easy to replace. Might want to get the fuel pump checked out.

Car idles fine but starts missing when given gas poping and sputtering

This could be caused by many different things. Do some research before you throw more parts at the problem. Try to extract the diagnostic code first. An engine needs 3 things to run: spark, fuel, and air. Your problem could arise from any of the 3 sources. Things to check include intake vacuum, ignition timing, fuel pressure to start. More information is needed to diagnose the symptoms you describe.
