  1. These are the readings im getting.
  2. Thanks JP appreciate that! I will do all the steps outlined and see how i go.
  3. I tested it over the weekend and there is no bubbles but it does overflow. (Need to upload the video), im located in Dungarvan Co Waterford. ill get a video of it idling. thanks for all the comments lads hopefully i or someone can get to the bottom of it. I would be happy to give it to someone to check it out thats around the south east.
  4. Bought the car back in may , in my ownership i had it parked up for 2-3 months, it was previously off the road for a few years, but it always ran and driven every now and then. Previous owner did pre mix it cant remember what quantity he said, it hasn't been driven much in my ownership (Same fuel in it from the last owner) , due to a few bits needed doing to it. suspension wise and wheel wise. Before this started happening there was no issues with starting it or while driving it. However there was 2 occasions where the car was started and moved then switched off after 4-5mins. First i thought it was flooded so did the usual of sinking the accelerator, then i took out the engine ign fuse and cracked it over a good few times with plugs out of the car. I myself have done no adjusting with the car. it has Power FC but I never went near it. Coolant is leaking someplace id imagine i just can pin point where.
  5. Hi Guys, My RX7 is sick i believe Car has rough idle, blue smoke first then black smoke. I swapped the plugs out for brand new one ran it again and started doing the same things and coated the plugs with oil, (Picture is of the brand new spark plug) I suspect i have a water seal issue as the level of the coolant keeps sucking down, i didn't want to run it for too long while its like this, so im not sure if the coolant is bubbling (Champagne test) or if theres a leak under the car. I cant seem to see any leak it but again I only ran for the length of the video as I didn't want to hurt anything. Can anyone shed light on this for me before I start robbing banks to pay for a rebuild. See below link to pictures and video of it running. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0iAiTIK3GfIT0NXdHRSRzZMUzQ

  7. My First RX7/Rotary

    She hasn't been to a NCT yet with those wheels, so i wouldnt know they do stick out a tiny bit on all corners, i have 255 tyres on them which are way to big, so need to find a tyre set up which will tuck under the arch nicely.
  8. Think that will be the route to go down, cant wait 5 years to drive the car
  9. It must be, because this is where I got the details for Autoline lol. And seen your post so I said ill chance it.
  10. Major Bump in this thread here, But im trying to insure a 93 RX7 Age 25 Driving 8 years with Full licence I have a separate policy for the Main car I had another policy out on a second car last year so I was thinking of using that 1 year NCB I emailed Autoline NI they mentioned i would need to be at least 30 to insure it under there classic insurance, Tried Liberty(Who i am with now) not a hope Anybody have any luck recently that is in the same circumstances as me Thanks
  11. Sh**te only seeing this now, got sorted with all of the above thanks man
  12. Howye, Just stripped the coilovers out of the RX7, There kaputtt!! Looking for advice,recommendations and experience on certain brand name coilovers. Budget is around 800-900ish, i know its tight but its an unexpected expense at this time
  13. My First RX7/Rotary

    Sorry my bad, in my stupidness and naiveness i just took the details of what was mounted in the glovebox which states its a Knighsport, i think its redundant, but anyways the car does have the Apexi ECU under the dash hidden under the carpet so all is good there. Cheers man ill keep it in mind, before it touches the road i will need to get it checked out. Wheels are 9.5 all round et12 18s, got them second hand from a guy in donegal.
  14. My First RX7/Rotary

    Thanks man, I was thinking of doing a fresh Map on the car and get it running perfect I must check the knock readings and will post them up so see if they are ok or not, could the knightsport ECU be mapped for our fuel conditions or would I be better just getting another link/apexi ECU? Im a newbie so excuse the stupid questions.
  15. After wanting an rx7 for years finally picked one up few weeks back. Plan is just to improve on this car there has been few bits done to it just need to complete it to what i want the car to be Car has few bit including Apexi ECU Power FC with hand commander Coilovers Celtic tiger sound system (Which needs to be ripped out and standard interior put back in) Greddy intake manifold. Car came with horrible wheels: got that sorted last week with the purchase of Rota gtr-d's 9.5 et12 all round with dunlop sportmaxx tyres.
