first need to know at what point did it start acting this way. normally rotarys are very sensitive if not heated up engine tends to flood. check to see if engines flooded first, then check for spark and fuel. same thing happened to my rx-7 found that two injectors were not firing due to bad grounding, which injectors ground through the ecu(computer), determined i had a bad ecu replaced it and runs great.

Can binge eating after starving yourself cause missed periods?

It's more likely that starving yourself in the first place will cause missed periods. As you starve, some processes in your body slow down or stop, including menstruation. If you continue to disrupt your body with irregular eating and your period does not start up again, it is possible that you will never have a normal period again.
