Hi my wife and i own a 2000 mazda mpv, recently the van has been missing or juddering a bit when in reverse and somtimes driving on the open road can feel it more in reverse. We thought it might have been the transmission but after reading all these posts I think our problem could be the coild i think people have been talking about...Any help and comments would be appreciated

I posted a while back about my 2000 mazda MPV V6 juddering when the car idles or takes off.
I had a few replies back - Transmission, PCV pipe leaking, Ignition coils anf fuel pump/filter.
I have eliminated the transmission and I am still unsure about the PCV pipe and Coils. I have been putting in a bottle of fuel treatment stuff in the tank everytime I fill up and it seems to make it go away sometimes for short whiles or longer. So i am leaning more towards the fuel pump/filter/incectors.
Is there away to test these 3 things or how do I go away bout cleaning them?

These cars suck! Read all the posts. I have had all the problems listed. Idle control valve, pcv valve, heater not working, etc.
All started with running a little rough when first started. Auxiliary fan wouldn't shut off. No big deal. Replaced problematic valves, thermostat control, coils, wires, plugs. Same problem shortly thereafter. Took to dealer, told blown head gasket. Had this done for $3k. Got vehicle back and heater still didn't work. Started to run rough less than 24 hours after. Dealer is now telling me it is a cracked head gasket. There is a problem with the design of these engines. Good luck to all, my suggestion would be to get rid of any MPV. There is a real good reason why Mazda discontinued the vehicle. Mine is a 2005 with 70k. When we bought it, there was less than 30k on it. Over the last 6 years, we've only driven the damn thing 5-6k/year. Does that say enough? Had something wrong with it the whole time.
