Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
Exhaust red hot near cat
Posted by Anonymous on
Mazda rx 8 creates a lot of heat, to fix this you must change out the coolant every 20k miles, with the mazda brand coolant i think its called mazda f22 coolant, the engine stays hot due to the high RPM engine, you may want to check: ignition coils, cat, coolant, and do a compression test.

My car is currently at the dealership with the same issue I think it is the front oxygen sensor not working which caused a lot of heat and the car would not drive more then 2 miles without over heating. I am awaiting diagnostics from Mazda but may get a cat replacement pipe installed with a new sensor.
