MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine Failures

MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine Failures MAZDA RX7 rotary engines are strong and displace a lot of power for their size. Traditionally, carbon deposits and heat are their biggest enemies. Rotary engines run with a huge temperature differential, meaning that one side of the engine runs cooler that the combustion side (side with the park plugs). As a rule, cooling system damage should be avoided at all costs. Learn how these issues affect rotary engines and what kind of damage is done to them when they really fail. Presented using advanced software CG animation technology to help you understand. Part of our Automotive Technology Rotary Wankel engines and MAZDA RX7-RX8 series shown here on this channel.

Is The Rotary Engine Reliable? We Dispel The Myth
RX8 and RX7 otary engines are known for being 'unreliable' but are they really? Boost in, apex seals out and burning oil doesn't mean they're shitty engines, find out why.





4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead
4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead. The Wankel engine was last seen in a production car in the Mazda RX-8, and currently there are no rotary engines in production. Mazda may bring it back in the RX Vision, however there are many disadvantages to the rotary engine which has kept it from being successful. Rotary engines have a low thermal efficiency as a result of a long combustion chamber and unburnt fuel making it to the Exhaust. They also have problems with rotor sealing as a result of uneven temperatures in the combustion chamber since combustion only occurs in one portion of the engine. Oil consumption is also a problem, as oil is injected to add lubrication and help keep the rotor sealed. Finally, emissions are poor and fuel economy is terrible, and ultimately this is the cause of it’s death.

Mazda RX8 Compression Loss & Engine Failure
My RX8's first engine. What it was like just before it expired, so an easy way to see the "Hot Start Issue" in action.





Rotary Engine Breakthrough?
The Wankel engine always held out a lot of promise, but never was able to fully deliver on those promises. It was never very fuel efficient, and the Exhaust temperatures were very high. But now an independent car tech thinks he has stumbled onto what held that engine back. Get more video everyday at http://autoline.tv
