You can get one at a salvage yard pretty cheap. since your not mechanically inclined i would suggest using a repair manual. it will walk you through it step by step, even has pictures. They are about $20 at autozone.

Can't budge outer cv joint Mazda MPV 1991

the outer cv joint is separable
you have to take the complete drive shaft out of the vehicle first to do it
It is not a simple process to break the joint down and you will need mechanical skill, a good off set vice and a heavy hammer
it is more cost effective and less frustrating to simply have drive line specialists replace the shaft for you

My 91 Mazda MPV will start but it will not stay running and is backfiring. What could be causing this?

Check the timing to make sure its properly lined up, the belt may have slipped and jumped a tooht, or loose tensioner on the timing belt. Confirming the timing will give you a good clue as to where to look next.

91 mazda mpv cuts off while driving and will not restart until it has rested awhile

It sounds like there could be something in the fuel tank blocking the pickup . When the engine is stopped and the pump stops sucking it could drift away from the pickup and the engine starts but when the pump starts sucking again it picks up the blockage again. Failing that it could be the computer control box. Around that era some boxes would fail at certain temperatures and then after cooling come good again. Hope this might help. col

96 mazda mpv minivan 165k mi. Ran fine until one day just died.Had towed home.3 mech.tried diagnose gave up wouldn't start-turns over-no start. Last mech.replaced timing belt&idle pulley. Still no...

I was browsing unsolved problems. If you still have the problem, I'll try to help you. But it's going to be awhile trying to communicate back and forth. First...Check the engine for spark. Take off a plug wire and stick a screw driver in the wire end and place the metal part of the screw driver next to something on the van that's metal. Have someone crank it over for just a second or two and see if a small spark jumps from the screw driver to the metal part. I'll check back for your answer.

How do I replace alternator in mazda mpv 2000?

Typically an alternator is an easy fix. It requires removal of the belt from the engine running it, and a few bolts that attach it to the engine.

Because of the engineering with the 2000 mpv, it is a very difficult fix, and one that requires removal of the transaxle and exhaust manifold, as well as removal of the lower engine mounts. It will take a qualified Mazda mechanic 3.5 hours to do the fix - you can (at least) triple that amount of time as a DIY project (assuming you have the right tools).
