SOURCE: Mazda RX-8 Looking of airbag mogul

call up mazda. you should be able to get it replaced for free under safety recalls. unless youre missing one completely. then youll need them to get you one and install it. cause if you accidentally set off the airbag youre out of a car. if they set one off, they fix it or replace your car for free. up to you. second option sounds better in my opinion.

SOURCE: Mazda 2005 RX-8 wont start... ran yesterday, lights on & sounds

I have a 2004 that had the same problem. It sounds like the engine might be flooded. The best thing to do is to remove the fuse to the fuel pump. It will be listed under the fuse cover under the hood. Mine was a 20 amp but check to be sure. With the fuse removed, crank the engine for a minute to remove any fuel flooding the engine. Replace the fuse and crank the engine in 10 second intervals without touching the gas or you will reflood the engine. This process can sometimes take awhile and will drain your battery, so have it connected to an additional power source ( i.e. another car battery or jump box). When the car finally cranks over there will be a huge cloud of smoke so don't be alarmed when it happens. Lastly some words to the wise. This process CAN ruin your starter, but is essentially the same process that the dealership will you except that they will remove the spark plugs to drain the fuel and then charge you for new ones. If this process doesn't work then you probably need new spark plugs which is going to cost quite a bit. I was quoted upwards of $525 to fix this problem until I talked to a Mazda mechanic and found out how to do this myself. Just make sure that the engine is up to running temperature before turning the car off and you shouldn't encounter this problem again. I hope this helps you, and remember that if all else fails the dealer can fix it. It won't be cheap, but they will get it done.

I almost forgot, you HAVE to get the oil changed as soon as possible because there is probably gas in the oil now.

SOURCE: RX-8 EVAP P0455

This code is very vague as many things can cause this code. The most likely culprits would be: a loose or improperly affixed gas cap; a non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand); other leak or damaged piece in EVAP system

Some possible fixes would be; remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back; replace the gas cap, and/or; inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses (you may hear a vacuum noise or smell fuel), repair if necessary

Yes... it sounds like it is or was flooded. One of the list of things I do not like about my RX-8. Fun car to drive, but it has so many little goobers like this flooding problem, the car is not practical.

To unflood, google the procedure for unflooding Mazda RX-8. It takes some battery power, but it does work. In a nutshell, you pull the fuel pump fuse, and crank the engine over intermittantly for a number of times with pauses in between.

Exhaust glows red hot


Mazda rx 8 creates a lot of heat, to fix this you must change out the coolant every 20k miles, with the mazda brand coolant i think its called mazda f22 coolant, the engine stays hot due to the high RPM engine, you may want to check: ignition coils, cat, coolant, and do a compression test.

Can't locate fuel injectors on mazda rx 8


Hi. They are buried way down on top of the engine. Its just a matter of removing everything directly on top of the engine to get at the fuel rails. Just out of curiosity why are you removing them?. Jon

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.

I have a 2004 mazda rx 8 we may disconnect the battery to clear the "check engine light" -- if we do, will we need a "code" for the radio, or anything else?


You WILL probably need a code. Your car might not remember it as it needs the battery to keep memory. The best way to clear the check engine light is to buy a code reader. Costco has a cheepie one that works great. $35.00 . The code reader will also give you "code" that your car is throwing. Disconnecting the battery to clear the code is only a band-aid fix. If there is a problem with your car the "check engine light" will turn right back on. Just clearing the code obviously doesn't fix your problem.

Replacing starter motor


MONTEREY, Calif. -- After suffering a black eye from disclosing that it won't count RX-8 owners' opinions in its internal customer-satisfaction scores, Mazda says it may have to replace the engines in many of its flagship sports cars.

The voluntary recall of all 2004 and 2005 vehicles, and some 2006s, is expected to be announced this week or next. It involves damage to the catalyst resulting from oil leaks in the RX-8's rotary engine.

Any engine that does not pass a vacuum test must be replaced, said Robert Davis, head of product development and quality at Mazda North American Operations.

Engines prone to failing the test are mostly in hot climates and use synthetic oils.

Mazda also will check each RX-8's battery and starter, which tend to fail in cold climates.

"We're going to give these cars the white-glove treatment," Davis said. "We would rather replace the engine than have the dealer crack them open."

Davis would not disclose the projected failure rate of the engines or the cost to replace them.

Mazda has a remanufacturing center in North Carolina that will rebuild faulty engines and return them to service.

The recall comes after a video Webcast by two dealers who attended the July 11-13 National Dealer Advisory Council meetings in Newport Beach, Calif., was leaked on the Internet.

In the video, dealers said problems with the RX-8 were unfairly lowering Mazda customer-satisfaction scores.

Mazda informed the dealers that RX-8 owners would continue to be surveyed, but that the responses would not factor into dealer
customer-satisfaction scores. See story here

Mazda has issued service bulletins on such trouble spots as squeaky
brakes and engine flooding.

Mazda rx7 93 looses power @ 7k+


Look for restrictions in the intake air and exhaust systems. Check fuel pressure and delivery (fuel filter/pump). Check the ignition system as well. If the engine has a lot of miles, you may be experiencing combustion seal wear. These are amazing engines when they work correctly! Good luck!

This normal for all rx's to do this. It is because of the large pads/disc area. The pads bond to the disc but free once the car is moved.
