OK, the reason I ask is because I'm going to change trans fluid and filter and they have different filters and gasket.

Oh...better look into it further then...you sure it's not out of the 6cyl?

Edit: Rock Auto shows the same part numbers for the Ford and Mazda 4cyl auto trannies.

I dont understand the question. I have a four cylinder, but i see where the filter goes now, however does it have a seperate pan since the filters on the front on the trans?

You said they have different filters and gaskets, I was trying to say to make sure you're not comparing 4cyl vs 6cyl filters.

location of transmission filter - ProbeTalk.com Forums

It looks like it's difficult to access.

I really appreciate that. So you think that the filter could be picking up scraps and thats whats causing the trans to not work and flash the "hold" light?

I don't know bro...the hold light flashing might mean there's transmission codes you can read. Welcome to Probe - MX6 - Technical Section
