Hi if you dont want it to be towed you could most of the time let the car sit and the gass would vaporize and the the car could be started again! but to be sure you could pull the ignition and fuel pump fuse\relay then crank the car a few times then put the fueses back in and you should be good to go!!

Changed battery in rain have lights engine turns over but no fire


The rx8 has the rotary ankles engine in it, these have porcelain tipped rotors instead of pistols and are prone to wear resulting in them not starting. The car should start with a bump or toe start. This will require an engine strip down and rebuild and should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. (Mazda recommend rotors be replaced every 25000 miles)

Let me know if this helps

05 rx8 steering is stiff


You do not have the proper test equipment, repair manuals and training required to test the electric steering, any suggestion would require you buy a complete steering gear, a very expensive part that may or may not fix the problem, your money would be better spent at the dealer.

YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE STOP LAMP SWITCH OR THE COMPLETE GEAR SHIFT
ASSEMBLY.MOST LIKELY THE SHIFT ASSEMBLY.YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF PARK BY STRIKING DOWN ON THE SHIFT KNOB AND PULLING TOWARD REVERSE AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE IGNITION TURNED ON.IF THIS WORKS,PULL BACK TO NEUTRAL AND START ENGINE.THEN YOU CAN DRIVE IT TO REPAIR FACILITY INSTEAD OF PAYING A TOW BILL.IF THIS WORKS CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT NOW.IT WON'T CONTINUE.

I have a 93 dodge spirit and no longer have my keys to my car. i need to get it towed to get new keys made before the police tow it. Can i put my car in neutral with out the key?


yes -- you can just step on the brakes and the shifter will shift to neutral. BUT WAIT -- instead of paying for the tow truck to come and tow the car,, just call a automotive locksmith to come out and make you a set of new keys for the car,, this will only take about 30 to 45 minutes and cost only about 75 to 85 dollars.

Just recently bought a 2003 Mazda RX8. Everything fine until I came to set of traffic lights about 10 miles from home and the engine stalled and I could not re-start it. Got towed home and then tried the...


You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.

COMPLETELY UNRELATED!... Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Need to tow 04 mazda rx 8


Top left and right corners of the front grill pull away to reveal the fixing holes. Make sure you WD40 the threads as Mazda coat the threads with paint. insert towing eyes and turn slowly unscrew and screw a bit at a time as you have a good chance of cross threading if you don't. Keep lubricating as you go. Make sure you take the plastic inserts off completely before towing as you will loose them when towing. replace when completed towing. Good luck and hope what ever the reason for towing it is not serious.
