This answer was rated:

I have a 2000 Mazda MPV, 6 cylinder, 2.5 liter engine. I am installing spark plugs and wires and need to know how the cylinders are numbered. ( For example If you are facing the front of the van, there are 3 front cylinders and behind them are three additional cylinders. What is their numbering pattern? The "engine familly" is YTKXT02.52BA.
Thank you for any assistance.

Thanks Josh, this is exactly what I needed. I will now click accept. Any thoughts on what else may be making it run rough if this does not work?

There are plenty of possibilities but you want to start with the basics first. I would also replace the fuel and air filter and run a bottle of injector cleaner through the system...


Thanks, Josh
