Actually if you take the front driver side wheel off the car you can easily access the spark plugs. Take out all 4 of your plugs and let the car set for a while (12-24hours) in a relatively low humidity setting if available. the excess fuel will evaporate on its own. I have used this method before as my Rx8 has flooded once before. This advice was given to me by a rotary technician

It is flooded. The only way to resolve the problem is to get to dealer to have memory chip reflashed

Changed battery in rain have lights engine turns over but no fire


The rx8 has the rotary ankles engine in it, these have porcelain tipped rotors instead of pistols and are prone to wear resulting in them not starting. The car should start with a bump or toe start. This will require an engine strip down and rebuild and should only be carried out by a qualified mechanic. (Mazda recommend rotors be replaced every 25000 miles)

Let me know if this helps

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.

Mazda rx8 when i turn off the engine it wont start straight away it was 10 mins at first now getting worse thanks martin


If its done more than 35000 its likely the rotor tips are starting to carbon up
Start to add redex on every second petrol fillup this over time should soften up and dissolve the carbon build up

I have a 2004 mazda rx8 and I noticed that sometimes when I turn it off I still hear the engine fan running. after 10-15 mins it turns off. is this normal


Check your Antifreeze Level. Is it low? If it is add antifreeze and then check for a leak. Look closely around the radiator. My RX8 was doing the same thing and the leak was at the radiator.

Hi to all ihave mazda rx8 2005 model and it start


you have a big issue the cyclinder is firing due to a timing issue. You will need to check if the timing belt, the ignition system is aligned to accurate settings. use a strobe to check for timing result according to the manufacturers setting.Or else you will need to check for defects in valve/cam settings.

Engine rolls over does not start


I had this problem. Twice! It sounded like it wanted to turn over but couldn't. Your engine may be flooded. I had to have mine towed to the mazda dealer (if under 100,000 miles it is under warrenty) so they could fix it. The second time they had to replace my engine because of a bad compression ring.
