99% of the time it's a pcv hose, put your hand behind the intake manifold while the car is running and you should be able to feel it. it will be sucked in at the elbow on the manifold, this is not an easy hose to replace.

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

This is a known issue with certain '03 and '04 MPV transmissions; my 2003 had the same problem. There is a Mazda technical service bulletin about this - 05-003/004 (Shift Shock). You need to take the van to a qualified shop and have them flash the transmission control module (TCM) with new firmware.
I had this done. It did not completely fix the problem but it did reduce its occurrence.
