I tested all of the fuses and they are fine. I pulled the spark plugs and replaced them w/ new ones. I cranked the engine w/ the plugs out and the fuse out, put in some ATF and put everything back. Tried to start the car and the same thing happened. So i took out the plugs and cleaned out the engine again. I'm going to let it sit overnight w/ the plugs out. If i can't get it working do any of you know of a good rx-7 mechanic in the indianapolis, Indiana area. If so please tell me for future reference. thanks

only other thing I can suggest is not to plug the fuel fuses back in until the car sounds like it is cranking over normally. Then when it sounds normal put the fuse back in for a few seconds to see if there is any signs of life, then pull it back out so you dont flood it again.

i got the car working agian. the engine was very flooded. when i put the plugs back in i heard compression. i had to take the fuse out and crank it many times before the car would start up. I sprayed some starting spray into the intake to give the car a little more boost. ONce it started up the garage was filled w/ smoke, but now my toy is working agian. thanks all.
