Hello, What you could have is and ignition problem. I have had to replace many distributor caps (2) and rotor buttons (2) on this model to solve this same problem.

SOUNDS like you have put 1 of the plug wires on the wrong way around OR you have got a valve sticking or burnt out so go back and check the firing order

'88 Mazda 323 cranks, but won't start.


I wouldn't flood one cylinder and expect it to start. Try using a small amount of starting fluid in the air filter to confirm your plug wires are installed and working correctly.

Compression, spark , timing , fuel for any engine to run. Don't forget a stopped up catalytic convertor will have the same effect as you described. Backfiring of course is fouled plugs, bad plug wires, look for arcing from wires when it is dark outside. If it has a distributor check for cracked cap, had my 91 GMC start backfiring then die due to ignition module inside distributor going bad. It would start back up after it cooled for about 10 minutes.

What causes the 2002 nissan se r to backfire


Sounds like an ignition or timing problem.
Is the check engine light on ?
This engine uses a direct ignition system which means each cylinder has a coil on top of the spark plug. It could be as simple as worn out spark plugs.
If you had said the engine backfired and was hard to start, but no flooding, I would also look at low fuel pressure. But too much fuel causes flooding.
A faulty throttle position sensor could cause all of your symptoms, but it should set a trouble code and turn on the check engine light.

I started the car for 15 second and then shut it off. when tried the following morning it engine would crank but would not start


if u start an rx8 without letting the engine heat up fully before switching it off then it floods the engine with fuel, a rotary engine problem, ring the dealer and they will be able to sort you out, is costly though... ALWAYS LET THE ENGINE FULLY WARM UP! before switching off!!

also rev the engine to 4000rpm and turn the key with foot still on the throttle when turning the engine off, to prevent flooding
