On the bottom of the transmission will be a transmission pan plater with maybe 8 or 10 bolts holding it on. The transmission filter us underneath that plate. When you refill the transmission you will want to use Dexron/Mercon IV fluid.
To change the filter (and gasket) they should come as a set.

  1. Put a pan under the transmission as you will loose two quarts maybe a little more.
  2. Loosen the bolts starting with the bolt farthest from you working your way evenly back.
  3. Soon fluid will start to drain. Let it drain as it goes. Give it a little time before continuing.
  4. When you get to the last bolt or two hold the pan firm while removing the bolts and lean the pan away from you and empty the pan of all fluid.
  5. Now remove the two screws holding the transmission filter in place and pull down on the filter.
  6. Now you want to clean the inside of the pan real good. Brake clean to soap and water will work.
  7. Dry the pan real real good. Should be almost shinny.
  8. Now place the new filter where the old one was removed from.
  9. Now line the gasket up on the pan and set it against the transmission.
  10. Get a start on a few of the bolts so the pan will stay put.
  11. As you tighten the rest of the bolts you will want to tighten cross ways. Like you would a wheel.
  12. Now you will want to refill the transmission fluid to proper level. Your manual will tell you the exact amount but for this car two quarts would be a good starting point.
  13. Now start the car and look underneath the car and inspect for leaks.
  14. Now put your foot on the brake and just shift your vehicle into every gear a couple times. All the way down then all the way up. This fills the pockets.
  15. Now put the emergency brake on and put the car into neutral and check the fluid. Adjust accordingly. Mind the area on the dipstick for a "cold check" as the transmission will still be cool at this point.
Regards, Tony

The filter is inside the transmission and not intended to be a servicable item.If you are just doing maintenance then just drain and fill the unit.If this unit does not have a dipstick then you will need to fill it through a small allen head plug in the bottom.If you are trying to fix a problem a new filter will not be the fix.let me know if I can help.

In order to access the trans filter the transmission pan must be removed and it will be right there. pull out the old filter put in new filter, install trans pan with new gasket ( comes with trans filter kit) and fill with fluid to correct level. remember to check fluid level with car running and fluid warm on a flat level surface.

Courtesy of: forums.mazdaworld.org

Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done

I don't believe you have one. You just need to get the trans flushed.

A not for free link is below. However, the library application called Overdrive is likely connected to your local library. And if you have a library card, you likely will be able to use it to reach a Chilton Library held at a public library in your state. You can see if you have access to an online version of the manual. It is possible in some states.

Unless they have something new out there that we don't know about, it is in the tranny, you have to pull the pan, dump about 5 qts fluid and get to the filter, clean off the magnet, fill her back up with fluid, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

REPAIR MANUAL NEEDED!!!!


The 2002, 2003 and 2004 Mazda MPV's all use the same Ford 6 cyl. 3.0 duratec engine. The Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute of those years use the same engine. Therefore if you need an inexpensive engine repair manuel for your 2002 MPV, get the Haynes ($20.00) 2001-2007 Escape/Tribute manuel. Mazda sells the a MPV shop manuel for $180.00. I also own a 2002 Mazda MPV LX. 75k miles.
