    rx8 sills

    Hello ser, do you know anyone local to you that is a well recommended panel beater or welder because that is your guy. I have 2 beside me that is very local if I need them. Hopefully they are not as bad as you think and you might get away with a tidy up like mine

    Rough Idle Fault code

    Hi , Of the top Of my head after disconnecting several sensors on my rx8 for parts quite a few of them were manky dirty so I would clean the manifold pressure sensor and look for wear all around there. If that fails check the sensor as it may need a replacement. Then the 02 sensor whats the story with the cat. Cant remember what code but my car (gutted cat) threw a 02 sensor code but I cleared it and that’s well gone now

    Looking into this or new seats at the minute,so would be greatfull for advice thanks
  11. Hi mate, yes ignition would be my first guess and would be a good place to start as you have to get some checks in to minimize what it could be. Some simple ways on YouTube for trouble shooting with coils etc so have a look and get started. Yes, I have had something like you before but not exactly the same and it turned out to be a sticky ssv then another time it turned out to be a solenoid on the blink. We would like to know more such as how it revs through the rev range where is it kicking in and dropping off etc to see can we narrow it down a bit. Any codes at all?
  12. Ahh I thought you bought a dead one and were selling the parts, was just curious to see what mischief you would be up to with maybe rebuilding the engine mate
  13. Very nice selection of parts jp what plans have you for the engine mate
  14. Look I’m in Sligo to and a bit like yourself I am trying to learn bits. So, I bought a second rx8 for parts but can’t get time to break it although I have a little bit done. If you are feeling confident enough you are welcome to come to take whatever parts you may need, I guess with cars it’s all about having the right tools so I may not have all of what you need regarding tools. That coolant is fine do shoot me a pm if you want to arrange to come down to pull a part or 2 to see does it help you. Also, Marcin in MG Motors is fairly clued in on Rx8s and does Diagnostics for about 50 notes. Again you are welcome if you want to trial so parts
