It is probably your radiator fan. it may come on when the engine is off. It will only stay on for a minute or two then turn off. If it stays on longer then there is a problem.

    you can start pulling the relays one by one until the noise stops. then determine what the relay controls.

Car had new battery and now it wont start, it just makes a clack noise and all interior lights shut off. Is it the alternator or the starter?


This sounds like a bad connection at the battery or at the starter. check the conntions at the battery make sure they are tight and clean also check the connections at the engine. make sure the ground to the engine is clean and tight and last is on the back of the starter check the connections to make sure those are clean and tight. the alternator or starter would not cause this problem as it sounds like you are loosing power and this is due to a bad connection.good day/

You need a new fuel pump relay. The engine fires up and runs off the oil pressure switch untill the oil pressure PSI is reached at normal operating conditions. When the oil pressure reaches its operating PSI the PCM or engines computer will shut off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay to run the fuel pump untill you shut the engine off

You cranked the car and moved around driveway to allow another car to get out. Shut it off. Now it sounds like the engine is turning over, but no fire, just spinning..


Do you have a Wankel engine in you car?
Then you have a flooded engine.
Pull the fuel pump fuse or relay and crank the engine over......until it starts then stops.
Now put relay or fuse back and start.
You cannot start and stop a Wankel in a Mazda RX when it is in it's cold mode and restart it easily.
Always run them for at least 10 min before shutting it off.
The other way to start after flooding.....is wait a day.

87 rx7 non tubo starts shuts down


My advice. Sounds like Electrical obviously. But many can lead to one or one problem to many. I would seriously not consider repairing it just get another motor put in. They are not expensive.

www.car-parts.com locations everywhere and cheap and good.
