    RX8 heating/fan issue

    I doubt it because you should be able to drop all the coolant in the radiator and refill without problems. It seems to me the rad sealer may have done the trick for you as K-Seal done the trick for me a while back Just keep an eye on this big time as having coolant issues can result in engine damage if not kept under complete control as Im sure your aware If your in any doubt in the future as jp suggested just bring it to your specialist or mechanic for peace of mind

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    WOW, really surprised you didnt find the leak if you removed the little under tray under neath the radiator and battery tray as it gives great access for touching and looking at pipes, radiator and connections. All I can think of is maybe its someting to do with the heater matrix pipes inside the car, is your carpet wet in the passenger side??

    RX8 heating/fan issue

    Just my opinion but as some of these cars are nearly 16 years old now more than likely it’s a radiator or pie leak if not replaced already. To get a better view of where the leak is coming from that is if you cant see any thing from the engine bay there is a little under tray under the radiator so you can whip that of to gain a better idea where the leak is coming from. Also you can pressurize the system as a alternative to diagnose the leak. And yes the heater cant work without coolant. Btw you can get better access to looking at the pipes if you remove the battery tray. Its in 2 parts

    As your not sure. My advice is if it were me I would get them. As the ignition system (coils in particular) can be a thorn in the side and is vital with these cars its important that your ignition system is up to scratch. Get new plugs also that way you have peace of mind in knowing that it will stand greatly to your engines health Also no harm asking Carl Ryan on the life- durability of his coils

    Hi Cupra and welcome to the forum, your right it doesn’t matter as rotaries emmisions exempt in the south of Ireland. Yah the later models have a better spec but for me it doesn’t matter as its down to personal choice and whats on the market at the time. You should join up on fduk to see whats going on there and also the facebook page. Some good tips on buying a FD below. Enjoy and keep us posted on how you get on https://irishrotary.com/forum/index.php?/topic/2183-3rd-gen-fd-buying-guides/ https://irishrotary.com/forum/index.php?/topic/2794-fd-faq/
