2004 Mazda RX-8 1.3L Rotary Engine Start Up, Quick Tour & Rev With Exhaust View - 84K (7500RPM Rev)

2004 Mazda RX-8 The RX-8 has a 1.3L Wankel Rotary Engine which makes an impressive 197 HP while paired to a lame 4 speed auto. When it comes to an RX-8 of this year, best opting for one with a 6MT which also the engine is tuned to deliver an additional 41 HP (238 HP total) Its impressive that an engine of this displacement can deliver so much power. But these rotary engines are by no means fuel efficient. MPG's are comparable & sometimes worse to that of a V8. Interior is a weebit cramped, few mechanics out there specialize in repairing these engines if it ever needs servicing, & overall reliability of the RX-8 hasnt been great. I would much rather go for the much simpler MX-5 IMO.

rx8 problem
I had a problem with my rx8, it was flooded, it flooded cause i moved it to my garage and turn it off without warming it up, after that didnt wanted to start. My uncle fixed it, he took the fuel fuse out, then he tried to start it for 8 sec. then waited 5 sec. then tried to start it again for another 8 sec. He tried the same for like 4 times, then he put the fuse back on. Then he tried to start it but it started then flooded again. then he took the fuse out again and tried to start it one more time it started for a little bit like 2 sec. then he put the fuse back on and bammm it worked!!!
