I would check your power steering fluid level first. If it's full your power steering pump is bad.

im no mechanic but the only problem i been having with the engine light is not putting the gas cap on tightly enough. The gas caps on these cars are garbage.

SOURCE: mazda rx8 fault code p0410

The P0410 code refers to the (secondary air system) emissions system. The AIR pump puts air to the exhaust to lower emissions. It takes in outside air and pumps it through two one-way check valves into each bank of the exhaust.
.
About 90% of the time that this code is set, the one-way check valves have worn out or failed and allow water (which occurs naturally in the exhaust) back into the pump. In any cold climate, especially in climates with higher humidity, this water may be more excessive. The water partially fills the AIR pump, it can then freeze. When the PCM commands the pump on, if the pump is frozen it cannot turn, thus overloading the circuit and "popping" the fuse.

A code P0410 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • Water may have collected in the AIR pump or the vent solenoid and frozen or corroded the pump
  • Blown AIR pump fuse due to freezing up
Possible solution:
This may be covered under the emissions warranty on the vehicle. If your vehicle is out of bumper-to-bumper warranty, check if the emissions warranty is still valid!
  • Replace the AIR pump AND one-way check valve
  • Test and clean the AIR pump AND test and replace the one-way air check valve
  • Replace the AIR pump inlet hose
  • Replace the AIR pump fuse (found under the hood)
It is really only an emissions issue and won't harm your car's engine ot drivetrain. It will however mean you won't pass emission testing if you live somewhere that tests for that like I do!

Jack the drivers side up and secure on jack stands. Remove the drivers side front wheel. You can then reach through the fender well to remove and reinstall the spark plugs.

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

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.

Low acceleration and no power


i would take those 2 coils off and check the backing of the packs. any discoloration indicates they are bad or going bad. coils may be working, but not to full potential due to grounding issues.

I have a 2004 mazda rx8 04 this morning on my way to work the yellow check engine light came on. the weather here is cold its about 22-27 degrees out. could this be the problem?


Hi
From my expirience, this happens when any of the ignition coils is faulty (they do burn).
Find the faulty one and replace it, that will be the prob.
Thanks
