Question about 1987 Mazda RX-7
MY MAZDA TURNS OVER BUT DOESNT STAY OVER. IT WILL DIE AND 1500 RPM. IDK WHY AND ITS STARTING TO GET TO ME BAD. SO CAN U HELP ME OUT?
ATF trick worked.... Thanks, BUT
Engine ran for about 5 min. Smoked cleared and started idling for a while.
then engine would rev up and down from 1000 to 1500 rpm.....
All was looking good...oil presure, Temp and alternator charge.
After letting run for the time mention, I tried to put it in drive and then as it went into gear the engine idle down and stalled after 2 to 3 seconds.
Tried to start agian but no luck.....
First thanks for the ATF trick...car I believed hasn't run in 3 to 4 years.
Ran smooth except for the reving up thing.
1. Should I do the ATF trick agian to get it started?
2. the idle screw on top of the throttle intake, can I turn it to turn down the idle
3. Does this defenitly mean I have a compression problem or that the seal could have beendried out from sitting for the past 3-4 years.
What ever you do. do not touch the idel screw on top of the intake manifold it will **** everything up real quick

1. im not sure what the ATF trick is 2. yes that is correct 3. no theres a few different things it could be. it most certanly could be though. it doesnt take long for a rotary engine to get messed up if its sitting. take it to a mechanic to get a compresion test that will help you determine whats up.
