Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
For the past couple of months I have been at the dealer about my car driving bad. After driving the car and it gets hot it will drive bad and cut off. The Mazda dealer said that was a misfire. OKAY so the first fix the stenoid and I drove it home and to work abd it cut off again after it got HOT. It cranks up after 3 min or so. Then I took it back they had it for 4 days and fix the cad. convertor, spark plugs, coils, and other little things. When i drove it home and to work and it got HOT enough it cut off again. I took it back. They kept it 2 days and called to say its the engine malfunction. They are replacing it. I have seen many things oon the internet about a recall on the 2004 engine. All the things they fixed already I paid to get fix just to turn around and replace the engine. Can someone explain what the HECK mazda is doing. Do I need to get rid of my car because it I have also read a rotor engine is bad and high maintenance. I bought it from a dealer but not Mazda and havent had it a year. After I get the engine will I continue to have problems?
I think it is related to the the ECM unit. Just gotta suck it up. My RX8 JDM 2009 cuts out regularly when I move the automatic gearbox to N and coast slowly up to the red light before I bring the car to a complete stop. My RX8 was brand new and fresh from the showroom. It had less than 5,000 kms on it before I got my first cut out. My guess is the ECM gets confused and cuts the engine. Difficult to replicate. Just happens without notice but does so frequently. Mazda deny it all and think I make all this stuff up. Will never buy a Mazda again.

I will never buy a mazda again. They have bad transmissions and engines. What is worse they use the same parts as Ford. How in the world do you combine a japanese and american parts into one engine? It keeps breaking down, thats what happens. I would ride it out since you are already gettin an engine but if you haven't purchased it, sell it and put that money towards another car, the dealer has used you like a gold digger.
