About Mazda MPV

As a first true rough-weather-friendly Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV), Mazda MPV was built by a prominent Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer Mazda Motor Corporation, commonly referred to as simply Mazda, between 1988 and 2006 in the USA and Europe, as a minivan. Originally introduced to fight for the increasing modern minivan market, MPV distinguished itself from the burgeoning minivan filed with its right-side traditionally hinged rear door. However, after being available in North American for only two generations although being named to Car and Driver Magazine's Ten Best List twice, the MPV was replaced by the Mazda 5 and Mazda CX-9.
The first-generation Mazda MPV (LV) was produced from 1988 to 1999 and debuted in 1988 as a 1989 model. It was offered in two body styles, 3-door van and 4-door van. Mazda made a few upgrades over the years. In 1992, eight-passenger seating became available and the manual transmission was dropped. In 1993, a driver-side airbag was added; for '95, the V6 engine became standard. Versatility was enhanced for 1996 when Mazda added a driver-side rear door; the MPV was, in fact, one of the first minivans to have four doors. During this generation, MPV was powered by a 2.6 L I4 rated at 121 horsepower or a 3.0 L V6 producing 150 hp. Power was sent through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels. The more recent MPV arrived at the North American market in June 1999 as a 2000 model. It came in one body style, 4-door van and three trim levels, LX-SV, LX and ES. Back then, MPV got power from a 3.0 L V6 rated at 200 horsepower and this engine was mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.

Mazda MPV Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering manageable size, lots of interior storage, decidedly un-minivan looks and roll-down windows in the sliding doors, Mazda MPV had won many fans in its days. However, the current North American version of MPV now is at least eleven years old, you really should learn about these common problems on it:
First, misfiring and stalling when slowing down are the most common symptoms on Mazda MPV according to the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com. These are obviously caused by the engine failure, although it is not the only problem on Mazda MPV since cooling system failure also appears a lot and deteriorates the engine failure. When the cooling system leaks coolants or has inadequate coolants, the engine will also suffer soon for being overheating or staying at a high operating temperature for a long time. Before you realize, the engine has performance issues such as misfiring, stalling, hard starting and inability to start. Finally, the vehicle will also lose power while accelerating and have decreased fuel economy. When both Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light are activated, it is time for you to inspect the MPV water pump, thermostat, radiator, oxygen sensor, head gasket, valve cover gasket, intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, oil filter, air filter, and engine control module thoroughly.
Second, the transmission died is another horrible problem on Mazda MPV and it even emerges when the vehicle only reaches about 80,000 miles. As the transmission failure is serious enough to cause drivability issue and even make the vehicle impotent, you are advised to learn these recognizable and simple symptoms of it provided by professional MPV repairmen. Starting with clunking or grinding noises coming from underneath the vehicle, transmission fluids leaking on the ground and the indicator not matching the gear; this problem often evolves in vehicle starting in another gear or refusing to go into any gear and you also feel difficult in shifting gears. All these symptoms could be attributed to the MPV transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork.
Meanwhile, please perform routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of Mazda MPV to keep its prime condition. Parts including MPV seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, cabin air filter, antenna, fog light and headlight should be maintained routinely to ensure a safe and comfortable driving environment.
