Hey guys.

My parents own a 2003 Mazda MPV LX. We bought it new 4 years ago. it has 49K on it, and drives great. I basically have done nothing but oil/filter changes every 3K, and a K&N drop in filter at 26K. She has gone to the dealer for warranty work on 2-3 gear slipping (found out there was a bulliten on that) and a 3rd cylinder coil pack failure causing a misfire. The misfire was recent, and caused slight power loss, probably from carbon build up. I decided to do a good tune up where I went to synthetic oil, cleaned the throttle body, MAF sensor, IACV valve, and PCV valve. the air filter is still good. I used a can of seafoam in the intake, oil, and fuel, and man is this thing great again. It drives better than ever. I also planned on changing the spark plugs, but couldn't figure out how to get to the back. I searched and found out you need to take off the intake plenum. problem solved. My only problem is i wanted to change the trans fluid. the owners manual states it isn't necessary, but the dealer said every 30K. the color is still good, but I don't deal with auto's, I own a altima 3.5 6-speed and a Toyota matrix 5-speed. so I said go for it. The dealer said 7 qts Dexcron 3, but I cant find the drain plug. Does anyone have an electronic copy of a service manual, or anything. Thanks
