Codes changing why?

There are many possible causes. Make sure you have the right firing order. Look for vacuum leaks--maybe intake gasket. Read at the link below, starying around the middle of the document.

2002 mazda millenia p0305 riding rough flashing engine lights. New spark plugs , wires , distributer cap .

the code you have is because you have a misfire on cylinder number 5 since you have already changed all the plugs and wires only two other possible causes either injector number five or a bad valve on that cylinder while idling put a piece of paper at the tail pipe if paper gets sucked back against pipe its a bad valve if not i would go after the injector..good luck hope this helps you.

Backfiring and constant miss firing, engine not running smoothly during idling and loud miss firing sound at exhaust at full throttle opening.

You have a timing problem. Check for loose/broken belts. also see if the distributer cap is worn out or cracked. Replace it if it looks worn out. Change spark plugs....
Sounds like a typical ignition problem. If your handy, you can do this all yourself.
Change plugs wires and distruber cap.

My 1994 Chevy Silverado 5.7 has a rough idle and a small dead miss at an idle, I changed all filters, wires, plugs, changed distributor, cap and rotor, changed ignition coil, and still same...

This misfire could be an intake valve or exhaust valve stuck open. Remove spark plug, and use a fiber optic camera to look in the chambers to look at the valves. It could be a bent valve or badly worn edge of a valve or simply a build up of carbon debris. I own a 95 Jimmy with a V6 Vortec and it has the same problem with a miss. mine is a bad valve, I hope yours is something small, but I hope it helps anyhow.

Checked and cleaner EGR?. Misses all the time or just at idle, going down road? Have you tried pulling one plug wire off cap or plug at a time to see if you can isolate which cylinder it is, then work from there?
Don't forget, Insulated pliers or similar to pull those wires.
