Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
I BOUGHT THIS CAR 2 MONTHS AGO WITH 80K ON IT. IVE PUT 2K ON THE CAR. THE CK HECH ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON IT WAS THE CATALYTIC CONVERTOR.THEY REPLACED IT. THEN IT WOULDNT CRANK AND THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WENT CRAZY THEY PUT A NEW ONE IN.TODAY THE CODE P0456 IS ON WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?
P0456 is a small (.002") leak in the evaporative system most common problems are gas caps and purge valves. however there are many other places that can leak (cracked hoses,leak detection pump fuel tank or lines,vent valve, just to name a few)

Check to see if you are getting fuel to the engine.If not replace the pump relay.Then change the pump if still not working.Check for spark at the wires if you have no spark then change the crank sansor.If still no spark then change the coil pack.

Did it all work before, or is this the reason you replaced the battery? is there a antitheft problem? does it have a key fob? does it work? Check all fuses? Did you start it and only let it run 1-2 minutes then shut the car off, they are bad about flooding if you run them and shut it off before fully warmed up. IE backing the car outside, them turning it off to wash it.

take back to whoever put the engine in. i am willling to bet that they crimped the wires on the oxysensor when they put new engine in. this will cause this problem.
