Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
Backed out of driveway and washed it. Pulled back under carport. 2 days later it won't start. Where are the plugs located?
Ignore the first reply ("no plugs on a rotary...").
The RX-8's plugs (there's 4) are found offset down by the right-hand side of the engine bay (looking in from the front). Access is easier from the passenger-side (UK) wheel bay - jack car and remove wheel for easy access.
Points to note: There are two different types of plugs fitted (2 each of 2 types = 4 plugs), for each rotor housing there's the leading plug, and trailing plug. Ensure that you replace the correct plugs in each position.
I'm sure you know by now - when you drive the RX-8, let the engine warm-up before switching off, or in dire-need, use the recommended procedure in the owners handbook - hold revs at 4000 then switch off (with foot still on accel) to avoid flooding the engine.

You may not have any. if you have an RX-8 it is a rotary engine.
