If its done more than 35000 its likely the rotor tips are starting to carbon up
Start to add redex on every second petrol fillup this over time should soften up and dissolve the carbon build up

Just recently bought a 2003 Mazda RX8. Everything fine until I came to set of traffic lights about 10 miles from home and the engine stalled and I could not re-start it. Got towed home and then tried the...


You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.

I have a 2004 mazda rx8 and I noticed that sometimes when I turn it off I still hear the engine fan running. after 10-15 mins it turns off. is this normal


Check your Antifreeze Level. Is it low? If it is add antifreeze and then check for a leak. Look closely around the radiator. My RX8 was doing the same thing and the leak was at the radiator.

White creamy thing on dipstick of mazda RX8


theres no water, theres no coolant, no cracked block, theres no problem, it is normal for an rx8 (for that matter a rotary engine) to have some white foam on the dipstick. all it is is oil being thrown about by the rotors all over the chambers and foaming up, there is nothing to worry about, its just oil. it is more noticeable in 04-05 models and if you so desire you can go to a mazda dealership and the will install baffles into your oil pan or a new one that is updated to help prevent this because they redesigned it after 05.

Rx8 car has trouble starting you need to step on the gas 7-10 times for the car to start


The RX8 has always been a bit problematic at starting, at least until Mazda started fitted uprated starters (~2006). The standard, weak starter motor spins the engine quite slowly, causing problems getting compression to start the engine.

There's various things to try...

DON'T pump the gas whilst starting - foot OFF the accelarator (might be beneficial to depress the clutch just to reduce the loading on the starter motor). Check all the RX8 owners' forums - standard advice.

DO use a confident turn of the key - keep cranking until it catches (but not for more than 10 seconds - in which case leave for 10 seconds before trying again) - don't just crank for a second or two, then retry. That's as per owner's manual.

DO ensure that you leave the engine to warm up ALWAYS before shutting off - to avoid fuel being left in the rotor - that affects compression badly if left any period of time, resulting in very poor starting (risk of flooding).

If non of the above helps, get a hot-engine compression check to ensure that the engine isn't shot. If the engine is okay, then consider getting an uprated starter motor, or 3rd-party replacement. Many 2004/2005s have had their starters replaced (I considered mine, although I've had no problem over winter :)

Engine stops but can start again straight away


Hi,

Other than those described (and that you have checked), Have you checked the "Idle Control/Stabilization Valve"? It is also sometimes called the "Idle Air Control Valve".

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
