Any car with a hot-wire type AFM will not like oiled air filter elements. A minute amount of the oil is atomized by the air flowing through the filter, and deposits form on the hot wire in the AFM. Carb cleaner will often take care of these deposits.

New to No Pistons so i am not sure if this has been mention.



8 Owners, your car floods because gas is trapped on the top of the rotor and fouls up spark plugs, stater, and catalytic concerter. There are two ways to fix this:

1. Let car sit 3 minutes after driving (and also making sure the engine temp is at the middle)

2. Rev the car to 4k for about 5 seconds, then shutting it off while it is still revving.



I have yet to flood the car and i have had her about 7 months now. Personally, i do the revving and it works fine.

Just like other rotaries you should make sure its at operating temp before shutting it off...I dont like the shutting a car off at mid rev...

Most people know that Mazda builds sporty cars. But for driving enthusiasts, it's the company's history of building sports cars with lightweight rotary engines that sets it apart from the competition. The Mazda RX-8 was one of these, and was the only one with a four-door configuration.

The heart of the Mazda RX-8 was its high-revving, 1.3-liter rotary engine. Because of the engine's compact size, engineers were able to mount it farther back in the RX-8's chassis, giving the car a coveted 50/50 front/rear weight distribution. This, along with balanced suspension tuning, sharp steering and a svelte 3,000-pound curb weight, made the rear-wheel-drive RX-8 one of the best-handling cars ever made.

Unfortunately, Mazda did little to keep the RX-8 competitive with other sport coupes as the years went on. This was particularly true in terms of power, fuel economy and acceleration. Sales dwindled, which made it less cost-effective for Mazda to upgrade the rotary engine so it could meet more stringent standards for air emissions. Mazda finally pulled the plug for 2012. As a used-car choice, though, the RX-8 still holds plenty of appeal.
