Answer . Like any other new car, price will depend on options or other variables such as mileage on the odometer, location of the automobile, whether it is a standard or Automatic (with a four speed!). The lowest I have seen has been $21,000 +/- and the most expensive was +/- $36,000 new.
The Mazda RX-8 tends to flood at cold temperatures or when the optimal temperature has not been reached. The reason is because the extra fuel washes away the oil on the rotor seals causing a drop in compression while the fuel injection system is still spraying even more fuel. Flooring the accelera…tor shuts the fuel supply off. ****Actually the car will flood if it is not run long enough to get to normal operating temperature regardless of outside temperatures. In order to avoid this very expensive trip to the dealer you can run the RPM gauge up to 6000 for 5 seconds and shut the engine off (while it is still running at 6000 rpm.) Always let the car warm up and then run it at over 3000 RPM for a minute before turning it off. Don't start the car, move three feet and turn it off. Also: See your local Mazda dealer if the car is flooding. There are new engine management ECU flashes available to correct flooding. You also may need a new engine, the engine warranty was extended to 100K miles by Mazda for most RX8s, have the dealer check your engine vacuum and compression to see if you need a new motor. (MORE)
There are numerous warning lights for a Mazda RX8. Some of thewarning lights are for engine oil, charging system, ABS, and checkengine.
Just an additional note, you should disconnect the 2 pin plug from near to the Left hand strut turret "as your looking at it with the bonnet open", if you do not do this unburnt fuel may damage the catalyst in the exhaust, plug back in when it has started and warmed up. Unfortunately this happens on… other vehicles not just Mazda's, the modern car will in most cases overfuel to start when cold, it would then expect to be driven more than 10ft out of the garage, hence the excess fuel is not burnt off, and washes the bores causing low compression and non start, it happens a lot on Vauxhalls as well and other vehicles. So if you don't want big bills, then run the car as it should be driven not 10ft then stop and lock the garage. (MORE)
The RX8s have a big problem with that. The first step is to try starting it as if it was a flooded engine. You can look it up in your owners manual. Try starting it. If it fails, hold the gas pedal all the way in and then try and start it. Crank it for 10 seconds. Then let off the gas and turn the c…ar off. WAit a second then try and start it. It should start. If not than you may have a bigger problem that Mazda is still trying to figure out (something with the imobilizer security system). Take it to a dealer. (MORE)
does this particular steering wheel have an air bag if so disconnect battery .After removal of horn assembly there should be two threaded holes these holes are for a puller which can be bought from a car spare parts store or you can use the heel of your hand but beware you could brake the spokes of …the wheel .

Pettit Racing in West Palm Beach now has a supercharger kit for the RX8, but they have done turbochargers on rotarys for over 15 years.
I have an 05 RX8 (not much difference engine-wise between the two). If I drive it VERY CAREFULLY, and maintain low RPMs... I get 16 MPH. I then found out (thankfully) that I was hurting the engine by doing so. It is a RACE CAR. :-) So then I gunned it everywhere... shifting around 6000+, etc. …...and my mileage jumped to 21 MPH. The trick is to wait for the engine to warm up first before shifting high, but then do it all you want. The best mileage I've gotten with it is 23 MPH... but that was a VERY long highway trip at a constant 80-90 MPH. (this car really really really likes going fast) (MORE)
Hello there sir i would love to answer your Question but ever to do that i will need some more information from you what sort of alarm system do you have installed like is it a mongoose alarm or uniden they would be after market alarms. then you get factory alarms with the immobilsers in them..

I have listed the coils in order from the front of the car to back in the stock coil location. Coil input colors can confirm this. 1) Green coil input wire is Leading plug front rotor (bottom-front spark plug) 2) White coil input wire is trailing plug front rotor (top-front spark plug) 3) Ye…llow coil input wire is Leading plug rear rotor (bottom-rear spark plug) 4) Blue coil input wire is trailing plug rear rotor (top-rear spark plug) Hope this helps.

Both the Mazda RX7 and RX8 use a style of engine known as the Wankel Rotary engine. These engines are typically small but produce larger amounts of power than a standard cylinder based engine of the same size. See related links for a Wikipedia article on the Wankel Rotary Engine. The RX8 is also sp…ecial and noticeable for its looks (Well the 2009 one is) and the smoothness of the engine. The RX8 also uses a door style called 'Suicide Doors' which means both doors open in separate directions. It also has a good layout: Front engined rear wheel drive! It is a coupe and a four door saloon mixed together! (MORE)
No its not, you can show off in it because it is so easy to drive. People think your cool!
Dual rotor, four spark plug, side ported rotary engine. Between 170 and 200 RWHP stock with a 9,000RPM rev limit for the manual 6 speed and 7,200 RPM limit for the automatic transmission..
Jack up the car.. Take off your tire.. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off.. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc.. Now you should be able to take the pad out.. Replace the pad.. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear …down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper.. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more.. Put the relese bolt back in.. Put your tire back on.. Drive slowly and test the brakes.. Hope that helps at least a little bit. (MORE)
There is no "timing belt" There is also no camshaft nor any valves. The rotary engine does not use any of the above.
If you have the 6 speed manual it is 231bhp. In Australia the 2009 models are: . Automatic: 158kw / 212hp . Manual: 170kw / 228hp ! (I am a fan of the RX-8!)
12 seconds-1.8. Depends on if it is running on one rotor or a drag car. Be more specific please.
Shift it around 4.5k RPM. Don't go under 3k when driving or else you start wasting gas.
It is very simple. The only oil pan on the car is completely exposed. Remove the drain plug that looks like a bolt (I believe it is a 17mm wrench that is needed). Drain the oil. Put the plug back in. Then from the top of the car you can reach the fuel filter. You may want to use a cap style filter w…rench to remove the filter. The filter is located on the left side in the back of the engine.

Passenger side, under the hood, beside the radiator reservoir. You will see a black plastic cover about 6 inches wide by about a foot long, with three small bolts holding it down. The ECU is under that.
go under the car and locate the radiator in the left side you will see a small plastic bolt remove it and the the coolant will be out after its empty put it back and done.
Jack up the car on the left side and the park plugs are an easy access on the left side of the motor.
remove the driver side front tire and the spark plugs are visible and reachable. Take them off and replace them one at a time, to make certain that the wiring harness is put back on correctly.
The Mazda rx8 yields approx. 16mpg city, and 24highway. Driving habits will cause slight variation.
I own a 2004 Mazda RX-8. I have had a multitude of problems ranging from an engine failure to my transmission failing, my clutch even failed at 1500 miles. I have had the clutch pedal replace 2 times because the weld that holds the 2 parts together has failed. The engine seems to be the biggest issu…e though, andeven though there is a 100,000 mile warranty on it, it takes around 3 weeks to get it fixed under warranty because the engine has to come from Japan. Also, since I was not 25 when I had the engines replaced I had one hell of a time getting a rental vehicle while my car spent over 1 month in the shop. So yes they do have problems. Mazda also, has not been the most helpful with these issues and has tried avoiding fixing these issues every time I have taken the car in. I now have 65,000 miles on mine and am looking forward to selling it. I am sure there are people out there who have had luck, but I have 2 other friends that have them and they have had the same issues with the car and with Mazda. In the 4 years I have owned the car it has spent over 4 months in the shop, which is completely unacceptable. I love driving the car and it is fun and fast, but I will never buy another Mazda, I don't care if they have the highest rated car on the market. (MORE)
32psi for warm weather conditions. the more air in a tire the more center tread wear you get .: look on the sticker in the driver side door and there you will find manufactures recommendation's for psi.
get a rca connector kit with a amp turn on wire off eBay called add-a-amp kit, the power wire can run through the big rubber grommet where the other wires are on drivers side under the hood, be sure to cut a slit there and use a coat hanger to fish it through the other side which will be to the left… of the brake pedal. get more info at rx8club.com (MORE)
if you are/have in the past used synthetic oil stop. it will take two or three oil chances to stop this. if you run the motor six to eight hours in summer this will stop this too. the cause is water condensing in the oil compartment

you have to either take the front bumper off or remove the front wheel and wheel well. and the rest should be pretty self explanatory.
you have to take the front bumper off start with the side marker lights then there is a guard in front , youll see it when the hood is opened pull that off youll see some bolt. then look for your bolts under ur head light mount there's 3 and then one on top then one final one after the mount is off.… Am afarid that's not really true, all you need to do is turn the wheel in the way (passenger or driver side), take out the black plastic plugs and remove the panels then you will be able to see at least 1 screw and certainly feel the second maybe see it depends how far in you can get. Remove those two screws and the indicator lense will come straight out. ***Note though do not pull it right out as the bulb and wire are still connected, you need to disconnect them first. (MORE)
All of this refers to halogen lamps. If you have the xenon lamps it isn't recommended you try to replace them yourself. The owner's manual shows the basic process. Access the headlights from above the front tires, the headlights are behind the mudguards. It helps to jack up the car to make mor…e room to work above the tire, but you don't need to remove the tire. There is a top and a bottom mudguard. You only need to worry about the top mudguard; the bottom one doesn't come into play. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove enough of the push-type rivets to bend the front part of the mudguard down and back over the tire. This gives you access to the back of the headlights. The rubber gasket over the light assembly just pulls off, but it's not easy to do. You can grab one of the two flaps that stick out with a pair of needle-nose pliers and just pull. There is a black plastic piece that holds the lamp in, and aligns it correctly; this piece is held in place by the retaining clip and the lamp plugs into it. Don't touch the glass on your new lamps! Oil from your skin will vastly shorten the life of the lamps. When reassembling, you can reuse the push-type rivets on the mudguard (if they're unbroken and not too brittle.) It's much easier to insert them if you remove the center part of the rivet, pinch together the four arms of the outer part and insert it into the mudguard and the hole behind it. Once that's in place it's easy to reinsert the center part. If you need new push-type rivets, be sure to get the proper size. Some available in auto supply stores are too short and almost impossible to snap close. Mazda parts, of course, fit best (and cost the most.) HOWEVER, I strongly recommend against trying to do this yourself. I'm an experienced home mechanic (I work on my race cars), and I just caused a several hundred dollar repair replacing an $8 bulb: that retaining clip mentioned above is *completely* inaccesible, and if you pull in the wrong direction... *snap* goes the cheap plastic bit that holds it, and now I think we'll have to pull the whole fricking bumper off to get the broken headlight assembly out (the broken bit being an integral part of that assembly) and replace it. Frankly, this is engineered like CRAP by mazda, and I say that as one of their biggest fans (I currently own 3 mazdas). (MORE)
remove the intake up to the throttle body. after that you should be able to see the coils on the drivers side of the engine. remove the bolt and replace. don't mix the ignition wires.
The procedure may be different for various models, but your owner's manual should list it specifically. From what I can recall, I believe you have to crank the engine while the accelerator pedal is fully pressed down. This causes the fuel pump to not operate which in turn forces the engine to burn u…p whatever excess fuel is present while attempting to start. After a few of these "dry" starts, try to start the car normally. (MORE)
Oh, yes! The rotary engine takes unusually well to turbocharging. It is normal to get double the horsepower from the engine after turbocharging it (assuming you re-program the computer correctly), without making ANY internal engine changes at all. 500 HP is pretty typical; not bad for a 1.3 liter en…gine!

Used Mazdas are available from many sources. They can be purchased at dealerships, as well as online, and sometimes can be found on sites like Craigslist or in the classified ads of local newspapers. Caution is advised any time one purchases a used car.
Many car sales websites show that they have advertisements for used Mazda RX8s. The prices for these vehicles ranged from about $6,000 to $10,000.
No, since there are no valves, there was no need for a cam shaft or belt. Or, all the parts that go with it. No header mechanism required.
I don't know, take your car for a check up and tell them about it...
Technically, no. But that's only because the Mazda Rx-8 uses arotary engine, not piston technology. Therefore you can't classifyit as a V6. They've still got a decent amount of power, but it'stough to compare rotary and inline engines side by side; theprinciple is different.
I'm sure some people would say sarcastically that RX-8 engines are disposable. (Note how those words are supposed to be spelled.) RX-8 engines typically last about half as long as typical Japanese small engines (roughly 100,000 miles, rather than roughly 200,000). While this would be good for… an American car, it's not so great for a Japanese one. Also, they are not so easy to rebuild. On the other hand, a "worn out" rotary engine will normally run just fine, just with gradually less power, for a very long time. (MORE)
A little under 250 horsepower (225-245, depending on year and air temperature), unless the car has an automatic transmission. The automatic-equipped ones have their engines tuned so they produce less power.
Behind the protective panel that's behind the left-front tire. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, then remove the panel, and there they are. (There are 4.)

You can find this on a car dealership. On a website. You can look for postings online for that certain vehicle. Also look in the yellow pages that should give a person more information on how to obtain that type of car.
