If this is a Mazdfa rx8 with a rotary motor then it will probably be as it is supposed to be unless it is turbo powered in which check out the turbo operation. Rotary engines do not have power under 3000rpms as they need to be spinning before the torque range cuts in. The rx8 had a 13b engine and the latest version of the engine had as much power as a standard v8 above 4000rpms and reved to close on 11000 rpms

I think you will find the aftermarket Cat Conv. is the source of your problem, but without hooking up to the factory test equipment at my disposal at my Ford dealer this at best and educated guess based on 20 years of emission related work, I am a Ford certified master electronics technician

SOURCE: HOW TO CLEAN '94 BUICK CENTURY 3.1 EGR VALVE ..I

to properly clean and test the egr valve you should remove it from the car. disconnect vacuum, elect connectors, and check the gasket surface both on the manifold and on the base of the valve. you will need to buy or cut a new gasket most likely. when you apply vacuum to the control inlet, you should see the valve lift away from the seat. I use brake cleaner and compressed air to spray clean and blow out the valve just to test it and then go from there depending on what you find ---- one of the vacuum switches that controls it or a faulty vacuum line is a likely possibility also ---- so you should check them also. a vacuum pistol comes on really helpful here.

P0102 is ---- mass or volume air flow circuit, low input.
Check the wires going to the maf sensor and at the connection. If all seems ok, you might need a new sensor, seeing how it ran a little better when disconnected.

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.

I would replace the fuel filter(every 35000 miles),check the condition of the air filter and check out the catalitic converter and feel the tail pipe to see if the flow seems clogged and weak when some one else gives it the gas.
My 2001 had to have a new cat at only 44000 miles. I had them install a "High Flow" type.

Car has no power and has a rattling noise


RPM and speed do not match what I'd expect to see at 120. but that could be gear ratio being different than I'd expect. Most don't like to run at 4k. Most problems at that rpm is either plugs (experiment with different gap settings or change heat range one step colder or hotter) or can be coil related (work fine except when recovery time is shortened due to rpm). However, the weird noise may be due to a partially plugged catalytic converter. So, check that as well. If you have a knock sensor, test that too.

Looses Power at high RPM's


Hello! A cylinder misfire can be something as trivial as needing new spark plug wires, to having a dangerous lean condition in the fuel mixture. Assuming that you have a stock, un-modified car, with a stock, un-modified PCM, my suggestion would be to swap the coil packs, to isolate whether or not the 1 - 4 coil pack is faulty.


Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

Coil problem [ misfire DTC code]


rx8 have a history of coil packs going bad internally and grounding out. best way to check if theyre bad is to pull the packs and inspect the back side. if you have discolorationg on the back side your packs are bad or are going to be bad soon. inspect the plugs if they are fouled or burnt replace them along with the coil packs.its a good idea to replace the wires too. and do not use cheap aftermarket parts. this will only cause more problems in the future. use oem or performance parts.
