Does it actually crank? If so and doesnt start then its probably flooded. Been a problem with those cars since they came out but not to feel bad theres quite a few cars that flood easy do to certain sensors. If not turning over but just clicks then battery issue just keep in mind every time try to start and it doesnt that more fuel enters the system and doesnt burn off which means more flooding (to much fuel)

We have recently purchased a 2005 Mazda 6 Classic Hatch, up until recently we have had no problems with it, but at least 3 or 4 times over the last couple of weeks it has not wanted to start, it would...


MONTEREY, Calif. -- After suffering a black eye from disclosing that it won't count RX-8 owners' opinions in its internal customer-satisfaction scores, Mazda says it may have to replace the engines in many of its flagship sports cars.

The voluntary recall of all 2004 and 2005 vehicles, and some 2006s, is expected to be announced this week or next. It involves damage to the catalyst resulting from oil leaks in the RX-8's rotary engine.

Any engine that does not pass a vacuum test must be replaced, said Robert Davis, head of product development and quality at Mazda North American Operations.

Engines prone to failing the test are mostly in hot climates and use synthetic oils.

Mazda also will check each RX-8's battery and starter, which tend to fail in cold climates.

"We're going to give these cars the white-glove treatment," Davis said. "We would rather replace the engine than have the dealer crack them open."

Davis would not disclose the projected failure rate of the engines or the cost to replace them.

Mazda has a remanufacturing center in North Carolina that will rebuild faulty engines and return them to service.

The recall comes after a video Webcast by two dealers who attended the July 11-13 National Dealer Advisory Council meetings in Newport Beach, Calif., was leaked on the Internet.

In the video, dealers said problems with the RX-8 were unfairly lowering Mazda customer-satisfaction scores.

Mazda informed the dealers that RX-8 owners would continue to be surveyed, but that the responses would not factor into dealer
customer-satisfaction scores. See story here

Mazda has issued service bulletins on such trouble spots as squeaky
brakes and engine flooding.

theres a recall if i was you id be going to get my new engine put in

Mazda rx-8 wont start


The first thing you need to do is have the electronic engine control system scanned for fault codes, this is called an "OBD2" fault code test.

Will not start after changing battery changed battery on my 2005 rx 8 mazda last night and it started up fine. this morning just kept turning over and would not start.


If the engine is cranking, it can only be 2 things left, got gas? Are you getting a spark at the plug wire? Check the oil. Some cars won't turn on the fuel pump with no oil, could be the pump. Could be the coils. You have to check these things out and find out which way to go next.

Mag Rims


The answer is no. You could try with tire dimension 30, but I highly discourage you to do so.

Adding 20" rims will significantly reduce the driving quality of your car. Stick to the original 18" rims and you will be fine. Do not put the looks above the driving quality of your RX-8, because the driving quality is what your RX-8 is all about.

Here are some reasons not to do it:

1. Your car will crawl... Acceleration is much worse.
2. It will immensely increase the wear of your shock absorbers.
3. It will give you real hard rides you will have neck and back problems.
4. Cornering will be really dangerous instead of fun.
5. The tires will be much more expensive.

Hope this helps.
