SOURCE: 2004 Mazda RX8 Heater problem

There is a well known problem that is a manufacturer's defect with the soldered connection on the circuit board behind the temperature knob. There is a fix to re-solder the connections but the dealer will gladly take $450 to replace it with the same bad board that will last you a while. Look for the link to show you how to fix it yourself.

SOURCE: mazda rx8 flooded .brakedown come tried to start

Your problem is common in the RX-8. It occurs when you start a cold engine and shut it off before it reaches normal operating temperature. If your car does flood, you can first try depressing the accelerator completely and holding it (which shuts off the fuel pump) and then crank the motor for about 10 seconds (not longer or you may damage your starter). If this procedure above does not work, here is the technique a Mazda dealership will normally use (to be performed at your own risk): 1. Use jumper cables to connect to another car battery. 2. Unplug Air pump connector (the black circular motor housing to the left of the oil filler cap) 3. Take fuel pump fuse out (number 22, a 20 amp, 3 from the top of the second column of the fuse box 4. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 5. Leave for a minute 6. Crank for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, repeat for about a minute 7. Put fuel pump fuse back in 8. Crank for up to 10 seconds, if it catches but doesn?t start, stop cranking 9. If not started go back to step 3 10. If started, wait 30 seconds for oil pressure to rise 11. Stand on throttle until white smoke stops coming out of the exhaust 12. Disconnect jump leads 13. Leave to warm up on idle for a few minutes 14. Put air pump connector back on (see note 3) 15. Go for a nice long drive to recharge the battery

Drivability problems after driving 20 - 30 miles


Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

I have a 2001 Mazda MPV the problem is this it will start fine fir awhile and then I will go out and wont start. Yet if I try it again later it will start up no problem it has got a couple of mechanics...


If it is turning over when it does not start, may be a fuel pump going bad. Gets hot and stalls out and won\'t start till it cools
down. Must be replaced. Check fuel filter as well. Could also be something as simple as a bad battery, starter or alternator connection... Corrosion is a bummer!

if this car is on the cold start injector when it is defective. Injects additional fuel to the engine is still warm. Is it to feel warm by running more than normal gasoline smell?

Just recently bought a 2003 Mazda RX8. Everything fine until I came to set of traffic lights about 10 miles from home and the engine stalled and I could not re-start it. Got towed home and then tried the...


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.

Every now and then it will stall out. just wait about 1/2 hour and it will start up and run good again


Sounds like the "Crank Position Sensor"...especially because it will start fine a few minutes later...tough to confirm by codes on this one...do any of your gauges go beserk when your Buick stalled? This would again point to the same intermittent starting and running problem...part is about $35. May need help to install...:)

Car stalls in traffic on a hot day. it sputters then stalls and would not start until about 15 mins. the car is a mazda 323 with the Z L engin. thank you


try by replacing thermostat and the radiator pressure cap, this may be just the fix! make sure coolant level is fine. it sounds like it has to cool down for at least 10-15 minutes before restarting. god bless!!

Check the electronics in the distributor. Chevs are notorious for the electronics going bad inside of the distributor.
