Question about 1987 Mazda RX-7
MY MAZDA TURNS OVER BUT DOESNT STAY OVER. IT WILL DIE AND 1500 RPM. IDK WHY AND ITS STARTING TO GET TO ME BAD. SO CAN U HELP ME OUT?
If it's over 170K it might just be super low compression that's the culprit. To find out I'll teach you the rotary engine mechanics secret weapon. Take out both the trailing plugs their the T1, and T2 plugs respectively. Now turn the engine by hand slowly watching the spark plug holes when you see an apex seal go by squirt a little transmission fluid into the plug hole, about 3 cap fulls is usually good enough. do this for both rotors remember there's 3 sides to each of them. Now just to be sure take the leading plugs out and spray them with carb cleaner to be sure they fire the first time around. Put all the plugs in their correct places, check the wires to be sure the leading coils and trailing coils are connected to the proper plugs. Then crank it over! If it runs like a brand new engine then its just worn out apex/side seals. This trick is also a great way to get rid of the carbon build up on the faces of your rotors. Hope that helps!
