Question about 1988 Mazda RX-7
Hey! I have a 1988 too and I've had that same problem and it all came back to one thing. The oxygen sensor on the exhaust manifold. It either needs to be changed or the connection is loose right behind the intake manifold. (Dynamic chamber) Hope this works for ya. It did for me.

Take the engine fuse out while putting your foot to the floor and cranking. You may need to spray a bit of engine starter in before doing this. The reason is that the engine fuse will continue to tell the fuel system to pump in more fuel. By removing the fuse, the fuel system will temporarily stop pumping, but will allow the engine to dry out. As soon as the rotary starts kicking like it will start, push the fuse back in and DO not take your foot off the gas until it completely cleans itself out. Usually takes 2 people to do this, but is a common problem for rotaries.

Very possibly you need a new timing belt installed. Thank you, Dana
