Hopefully you didnt use too much starting fluid. you dont want youre rx8 to be a crack baby. but as ardyrr said it is common for plug fouling and packs going bad. check packs for discoloration on the back side. if present, replace packs. if plugs are fouled replace them too. wires are probably damaged too or next in line to go. and when replacing parts please use oem or performance parts. cheap aftermarket parts will only cause more problems in the near future.

RE worded Hesitation issues on occasions tonight drove 15 miles stopped put in gas. Drove off got about 1000 yards engine just died had to cost to a space tried to start cranks but wont run?


Do basic testing. When in failed mode, check for spark. I suspect ignition module or coil, as these parts fail when hot and when you turn off running engine it gets hotter before it cools. Hard to diagnose because when you remove module to test, by the time you get to a parts store to test it's really cool again. Make them run test three times and tap with a pencil as you test.

Turns over good but wont start, ran a little funny a couple of days ago . Today started and died , then ran all the way home ! Tonight went out to sart it , it didnt want to start then the 2nd time it...


Check for spark-if you have a tachometer, see if when you crank it the tach needle moves-if not, you probably need a crank sensor, which are not too expensive or difficult to replace.

Check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine.If not replace the pump relay.Then change the pump if still not working.Check for spark at the wires if you have no spark then change the crank sansor.If still no spark then change the coil pack.

Disconnected/reconnected computer & 98 chevy cavalier wont sart


The computer needs to have a very good ground also check the wires going into the computer and make sure nothing came loose and there is no rust on the connections. If this does not correct your problem put the computer back in its factory location and try it

Sounds like the fuel pump got air in the system. You may have to bleed out the air. Then it will run. Check the fuel tank for fuel first.
