You either have air in the cooling system that needs to be bled out, or you have a head gasket leaking, allowing air to enter the cooling system from the cylinders. You can purchase a kit from most auto parts stores to check for exhaust gases in your coolant system.

SOURCE: 2001 Mazda MPV upper front oxygen sensor change

No you don't have to move any of that you need a "crow foot" type oxygen sensor it looks like a short brake line wrench that you can put a 3/8 ratchet on it with an extension. This will help you to get this sensor out. Good Luck

SOURCE: water pump replacement in a 2002 Mazda MPV

The reason is the water pump is driven off the timing belt, extra parts and allot more labor. No the eng does not have to be removed, labor time around 4 hours, parts about, about $125 US for parts, if it is a dealer add $75 US

SOURCE: i want to know if a universal coolant overflow can

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! The MPV reservoir is not an overflow but part of the pressurized system. Ever think it's weird the radiator cap is located on the reservoir?

SOURCE: my mazda mpv 2001 coolant leaking somewhere.

1. External Leaks
You need to get the vehicle to a mechanic to check all flexible coolant hoses, hose connections, around the exterior of the water pump and the entire radiator. To do properly the vehicle also needs to be on a hoist. If there is an external leak you should find coolant dripping from the front of the car while the engine is idling and the cooling system is fully pressurized. However it depends how bad the leak is and it's location.

2. Internal Leak

If coolant is leaking into the engine this is a serious problem and needs to be identified by a competent mechanic. For example, if you have a blown head gasket coolant will blow into the engine and contaminate the engine oil. If you check the oil in the engine's sump it should be completely free from coolant contamination.
You should also check the coolant in the radiator for any signs of oil contamination. If there is coolant in the oil then there will also likely be engine oil which has blown into the engines coolant passages and then mixed with the coolant.
IF you can find traces of coolant in your engine oil (or oil in the coolant) the likely problem will be a blown head gasket and the head on the engine will need to be removed and inspected .

Blown head gaskets are usually a result of an owner allowing the engine to overheat as a result of low coolant level, failed water pump or faulty thermostat. Overheating can also cause major damage to the head on the engine.

Coolant leak


Only if you have to remove them to fix the leak. Make sure the leak isn't coming from the water pump, the reservoir, or from freeze plugs.
If it has overheated or is shooting water out of the tailpipe upon startup, you should have a mechanic do a pressure check.

My mazda mpv 2001 is over heateng


Make sure that you always have enough coolant in your car so that it does not overheat. If it continues to overheat after you have filled your car up the the full line with the coolant, then you might have a leak in the coolant reservoir or a hose that is connecting it to the engine. If all of that fails then there is a problem with your engine and t is a very serious problem that you will have to take to the mechanic.
