If the engine is cranking, it can only be 2 things left, got gas? Are you getting a spark at the plug wire? Check the oil. Some cars won't turn on the fuel pump with no oil, could be the pump. Could be the coils. You have to check these things out and find out which way to go next.

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

The mazda rx8 is hard starting and not idling properly. How do u set the timing for the rotas. Do u have a diagram


there are no timing on the rotors for a wankel engine. The timing is controlled by a computer for the RX-8. The sensors & distributors can be adjusted on the RX7's & other Mazdas but I know that there were major engine changes to the RX-8 so I can't tell you for sure. I use to have an RX-7 and worked on it all the time.

Had a question bout my mazda rx8 I was driving it one night it was running fine the next day went out and it won't turn over it takes awhile bit it finally starts and idles real rough and you give it...


Too many possibilities

Won't turn over is one problem -battery,cables,grounds,
starter,solenoid,etc

Idles rough-- vacuum leaks,spark plugs never replaced,
egr valve etc

Worn O2 Sensors
Dirty MAF Sensor
Old Fuel Filter

You have to go into a lot of technical detail & history
on your vehicle, for us to even guess.

My 2005 rx8 turns over but doesnt start


I have a 2004 RX-8 and had the same problem. Mine ended up being that the ignition coils went bad. I've read on several forums for rotory cars that the ignition coils are a huge weak point and should be replaced around 30-40K on the odo. For all four(new) I paid 125 or so and fixed the problem right away. It starts better now than it ever has. Took me about 15 mins to change all four out.

2005 mazda rx-8 automatic will not start


Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)

Ticking noise when trying to start car


Hi

Sounds like a flat battery !

Get a jump start, with a good heavy duty set of jump leads.

Then have your battery tested.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated thanks. !
