Coils #4 and #5 are in the front, towards the radiator, that's an easy 5 minute fix. The coils in the back are the ones that will cost a lot, due to having to take the upper manifold off, best to replace the ones in the back at the same time.

did you change the plugs and wires yourself. It looks like it would be tough job. what is the order for part removal? what about the dhoc.

The dhoc looks like it could make changing the spark plugs and wires a tough job. can anyone tell me the order of removal of parts to change the plugs and wires?

I just had what sounds like the exact same problem with my 2002 MPV. Hopefully tilde05 is back on the road by now, but in case anyone else has the same problem, here's what happened to me. Being a "fix-it" kind of a guy, tried to fix it myself first. The when the idle went high, I first replaced the idle air control valve ($92), no difference. I then replaced the MAF sensor ($209 from the dealer, the only one that would fit), no difference. I then replaced the throttle position sensor ($34), no difference. All the while, no codes were set. I then gave up and took it to a repair shop. They found that the "coolant temperature sensor" was bad, replaced it ($180 total), and now the van runs like new. Hope this helps someone. Maybe next time I'll just bring it to the shop right off.
#41 of 76 "shudder" at idle, 2003 Mazda MPV
Jul 20, 2009 (6:24 pm)
Hi, I've got an '03 with 138,000 clicks. So far, it's been extremely reliable and we've had no real problems. Now it "shudders' when I'm at a red light and it feels like it's going to stall out. Also acts the same going up a hill. Just had the coolant thermostat and seal replaced, as well as a "platinum plug" (#2 I believe) and the EGR valve gasket replaced because that's what the diagnostic check said to fix. Driving today the engine light came on (just got it back from the shop last week), and engine light flashed every time I had to go up a hill, then went back to steady.

Possibly a coil, which is on each plug. The blinking CEL indicates a engine misfire in 1 or more cylinders, when it is just on steady, it indicates an emission related code, which could be just a result of the misfire.
Hard to say which coil is bad, could be more than 1. They aren't cheap to replace at the dealer, not terribly hard to DIY if you search for instructions.
#43 of 76 1991 MPV Won't start and won't roll start
Jul 22, 2009 (12:59 pm)
I bought a 1991 mpv with 140k miles on it. ran fine for about a week even took it on a 200 mile round trip with no issues. now will crank but not fire wo't roll start and when i try it All the indicator lights on the dash flash randomly and the engine sounds like it is running but the odometer is erratic to 1500 - 0 and back.
I am afraid of an ECU problem as I do not have alot of money to put into this car
any ideas of what i can look to fix to get er back to running and starting again?
#44 of 76 2005 Mazda MPV-Stalling
Sep 27, 2009 (11:24 pm)
Mechanic has just replaced all the sparkplug and no. 2 coil. he mentioned that the tester is indicating that no2 coil is defective, so he replaced it, however the problem is still there, he then told me two days later that I have to replace all the coil. I felt that this mechanic is guessing but I don't want to tell him directly... so I need any advise or assistance otherwise I will be spending more than 1, 000.00 ( non refundable) to replace all the coil as per his diagnosis. any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

You can buy a 6 pack of MPV coils on ebay for between $120-185 shipped and you should shop around with differnt mechanics to see how much they charge for the labor, I know the back 3 can be tricky, you could also doing it yourself there is a great article on replacing them on the Mazda MPV forum.
