Question about 1989 Mazda RX-7
My rx7 won't kick over. These are the things I've done - new battery, cleaned injectors, new fuel pump (pressure is good), sounds like I have good compression, ohms and coils are good, ohms and throttle sensor good, getting spark - please let me know if you have suggestions. This car was purchased for my daughter - hasn't been driving in about four years. Thanks!
I tried a Solution used from a previous posting... The automatic transmission fluid, (ATF), trick.
After doing everything in the mainianace manual, without a positive outcome... I tried it..
3 capfulls in each trailing spark plug hole... but it must be after or just after the apex went past the hole...
remember turn the shaft manually until the apex passes. Also remember their are six apex seals, 3 on the front rotor and 3 on the back, thats 18 cap fulls total. Don't worry if some drips or pours out after putting it in the spark plug hole. I did it with a med seringin. but be careful the end could break off in the plug hole.(don't ask) Just make sure you do all six just after each apex. Then take both leading plugs off and spray them with starter fluid and put them back just after you spray them. This, I was told, was to make sure the car fires on the first start. IT works.....
This is also a trick after having starting problems when the car floods.......
That why I waited so long to try it, I did need it for flooding.....
This swells up the seal... they got dried out from sitting at least four years... ATF soaks into them and
helps the compression...
