1983 Mazda Rx7 Not Starting

I recently bought a 1983 Mazda Rx7 and its not starting i bought a new starter and installed it when i tried to turn it on it didnt turn over. It then started to smoke by the carburetor. Every time i tried to turn it on it would always smoke from there! If anybody could help that would be great!

    With out being able to see the vehicle it is hard to say. What color is it? What does it smell like? Where exactly is it coming from? Is the engine running?

WHEN YOU BUY A 1983 MAZDA RX 7 YOU ARE BUYING SOME ONE'S PROBLEMS. SO NOW THIS CAR YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT A COMPLETE CHEK UP.YOU HAVE TO ASK YOU'R SELF HOW LONG IS THIS CAR BEEN SITTIN WITHOUT ANYONE DRIVING IT??? NOW YOU HAVE TO FIGUAR OUT WHERE DO I START,1- GAS FILTER GAS PUMP, GAS TANK- -DOES IT HAVE ANY GUNK? 2-DOSE THE CARBURETOR NEED CLEANIG OR ADJUSTING OR REBUILDING ? 3-HOSES 4-DOES THE ENGINE HAVE GOOD COMPRESSION 5-RADIATOR AND COOLING SYSTEM? OIL LEAKS CHECK OIL PAN SEE THAT THERE IS NO WATER IN IT.THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT NEED AN INSPECTION..I WOULD START FIRST BY CHECKING ENGINE COMPRESSION YOU NEED A PRESSURE GAUGE IF YOU HAVE ONE OR BUY ONE AT AUTO ZONE IS BEST TO BUY THE TYPE OF GAUGE THAT SCREWS IN THE PISTON HOLE. IF YOU BUY ONE ASK A SERVICEMEN FROM AUTO FOR INSTRUCTIONS...
GOOD LUCK AND WORK SAFELY.

SOURCE: i just bought an 1993 mazda rx7 today but it wont start last

bastard things are prone to flooding im afraid, take plugs out,whizz it over for 30 seconds be patient and wait for half hour to give time to dry out, then a couple of squirts of oil in each plug hole, whizz it over for about 2 seconds,then a couple more squirts of oil in each plughole again,replace (dry) sparkplugs, leads on turn it over and it should go.ive suffered this twice this year (in the rain).
repeat if nescessary
avoid this problem by NOT RUNNING for LESS THAN 5 MINIUTS,as this is caused by a rush ov petrol because ecu thinks engine is cold so injects more fuel, then you turn engine off,this rush of petrol rinses the rotors clean of the oil they depend upon to maintain compression upon restarting, this is where the proceedure above works.

SOURCE: how do i install a new starter motor on a 1982

unhook battery cable. there are only 2 bolts holding the starter in. you will need 14mm wrench and 14mm and/ or 17mm sockets, I think 1 bolt will have a nut on the end as it goes through. after that the start will hang and the wires are easily taken off.

84 Mazda RX7 not starting


Checked grounds? remove all connectors and clean them. Make sure you have 12V coming from the ignition switch to the solenoid. Does the motor turn over by hand?

I can not get my mazda rx7 to run on its own. I put starter fluid in it and it turns over and starts but when i push the choke back in it shuts itself off. do you have any idea what i should do?


You are not getting fuel to the engine. Have a fuel pressure test run to see if you are getting fuel which I suspect is your problem. Have you replaced the fuel filter which may be clogged? The fuel pump may have failed. The carburetor may be clogged. It can be many things. You work by eliminating possible causes.

Car will not turn over


Before I replace the starter I would touch/feel, making sure its tightly mounted and the electrical wiring is also tight. Then disconnect the battery (-) cable and remove the starter, not that hard. Take the starter to Autozone and get it tested for FREE. Then if you need a starter you can buy one there and put it back on in the reverse order as removed.
