SOURCE: car gets no electrical power at all...won't start or take a jump.

check the fusable link at the starter solenoid by pulling on each on, if it fill rubbery and streches then it is bad. Check for voltage at starter to ground also. If you have power to your starter then I would suspect a fusable link. also next circuit to test woud be from switch to smal terminal on solenoid. You should get power when key is in start position. Hope this helps you

SOURCE: Mazda RX8 starting problem

Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

SOURCE: 2002 chevy cavalier turns off while driving

I fix my own 1998 cavalier. before I had the same problem. mechanics made me changed catalyte converter, combustion gaskets, EGR, fuel injectors with a tune up on spark plugs and boots... BUT the problem was still there. they all gave up and told me to trash the dang thing but I kept it. did research and studies, lots. finally found out the car was design without a regular pcv valve. **There is a thing called an air/oil separator on it. Its mounted on the block of the engine just right above of the oil filter. You must clean out the tubes. The one that usually gets clogged by oil slug would be the one connected to the oil. runs smooth like a baby after you get that clean. hope this helps.

when does it overheat ? wile driving at hiway speeds ? or at idle or wile driving in stop and go traffic ?

if it overheats on the hiway, supect a restricted radiator, or a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.

if it only over heats at idle or in stop and go traffic, supect no cooling fans.

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.

I have a mazda rx8. my engine light comes on and code is P2070.intake manfold tuning valve stuck open.trying to find were it is located on my car


ok, we here found a problem similar to this, the 2006 RX8 we had has a problem with the sensor at the end of the IMT valve, which lets the computer know weather the valve is open or closed. Have a technician OHM the sensor, IF it reads open and closed, remove the valve, and clean , then clear code and drive.

Are there better coil packs for the mazda rx8 that are upgraded or high performance which would be better for my car.?


The revised Mazda coils are better and appearantly last longer. Part number N3H1-18-100B-9U. These are OEM on the later RX8's but will fit all models.

Cheapest for a set that of 4 that i can find is JP4mance.co.uk - RX8 ignition coils

Hope this helps?

Coolant light


If you locate the water expansion tank (front of the bonnet, opened, with the pressure-cap to top-up if necessary) - check that there's sufficient coolant in there (check whilst the engine is cold).

If so, you may be suffering the same problem as a lot of RX8 owners, with a dodgy coolant level sensor in the tank. One way to confirm this is to remove the connector to the tank - on the left-hand side of the tank as you look from the front (not the air-conditioning connector, immediately to the left of it, attached to an aluminium billet). Ensure the (now free-hanging) connector from the wiring loom is safely stowed and give it a test drive. If you're satisified that the warning goes away then you know that the level sensor in the tank is faulty (and therefore the warning light is spurious). Unfortunately, that's a pricey item to replace (dealer price, UK, in the region of £200).

Remember, leaving the coolant sensor unplugged to avoid the spurious warnings would mean that a genuine problem that resulted in (catestrophic) loss of coolant would then go undetected, until too late. So do this at your peril.

My Mazda RX8 2004


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.
