Question about 1987 Mazda RX-7
I just recently purchased a mazda rx7. The previous owner said the engine and tubo have been rebuilt. It has been sitting for 3 years. What are the fist few steps I should take before starting the car up

If it has been sitting for three years you might have problems. if you let a rotary engine sit for too long than you risk dammaging the apex seals that are on the rotor. deffinally change the oil and make sure its good gas. if you have starting problems of horrible fuel or oil consumption you might have dammaged the apex seals and it would need an additional rebuild to replace those parts. also was the engine broken in properly after the rebuild. if not you can doo even more damage to the engine. make sure that for about 600 miles you drive very cafeully at low Rpms. after the 600 miles change the oil again. P.S. make sure you have no leaks. another huge problem wiht cars that have been sitting but that a whole different set of issues
