    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    I love being ignorant when I see developements like this, it means I can say things like...WTF is this?...or Now there's a man who's got a degree in Advanced in Starship Technology! Way to go Jamie! You're special! LOL! The above is meant in the best possible taste and admiration. Keep up the good work!

    Like @Owenk N/S oil cooler line gave up. Got a replacement on eBay from the UK, it's not a OEM Mazda but better for €64, delivery included. Being the over cautionist I rust proofed all the metal bits with Hammerite Rust Proof and sprayed then rust Proof Red for the laugh! Drained the oil before fitting, so took almost 3 hours to complete the job. Here is the fitted result! Well pleased with myself!

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    I've been off the forum (basically of the all of the interweb grid etc.,) for the last 7 months and nothing much has happened. Hence the qoute from Jamie above, nothing else to report from Jamie or am I on the wrong thread I started way back in 2015???? "F" facebook, put all your advise and know how here on the forum! I'm not giving out but that's what this, "JP and Jamies" place is for! I'll start by stating that I've nothing extra done to report on my own RX8 since Anthony & Eoin of Shadow Rotary "Completely" rebuilt my engine from the mess that I handed to them. It's been off the road for the past 6/7 months due to personal circumstances. Looking forward to getting back into the 'cockpit' before the summer and posting my addition RX8 endeavoers. So Jamie, what have you done with the above???

    So what's the story Aaron? Any up date? Hope all's well with the "Blue Bommer!" After 14 years I'm sure she needs the "once over" and in no better hands than Anthony and Eoin.

    Show us some photos of the RX in general and shots of the rust issue. I had rust issues with my sills and rear off side arch and did a DIY on them personally 2 years ago after an NCT fail, and it still passed to date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    P0302 code. Help.

    Okay I’m gonna tell you right now! Thats sounds that the same guy who rebuilt my engine in June of 2015 (Leonard). Engine lasted 12,776 miles over 16 months. Paid €2,900 and a waste. Get it to Anthony in Shadow Rotary before more damage is done. Mine was missing corner seals, wrong e-shaft and apex springs were the wrong ones for the springs. Again, check out my thread.

    P0302 code. Help.

    Call me the “feckin harbinger of doom” but last December 2016 to March 2017 I had issues that sound familiar. See my thread on here “won’t rev beyond 3500/4000rpm to see what I finally had. As Aidan says, sounds serious. Sorry but it sounds like the engine needs a rebuild. Hope to Christ I’m wrong. Go to my thread and do what I did to fault find. Hope it helps and I’m wrong about an engine rebuild. Fingers crossed for you.

    1. Are the plugs genuine or eBay shite? 2. How’s she starting hot and cold? 3. When was it compression tested and what were the results?

    They might fail you as they view the underside and see no CAT. Best is to gut the CAT as most of us have. Save you money and you’ll get the same result [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Remote Keys

    Remote programming instructions Step 1: Open driver’s door and leave open. Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door. Step 3: Insert key into the ignition. Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition. Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step). Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors. Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors. Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors. Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done! Key Programming Instructions The timing is critical to this procedure, please read through the entire procedure before attempting. Procedure: 1. Insert one of the pre-programmed transponder keys and turn the ignition to "on", leave on for at least one second (I wait until the red key symbol in the instrument cluster extinguishes), remove the key from the ignition. 2. Within 5 seconds insert the second pre-programmed key and turn the ignition to "on" for at least one second but no more than 5 seconds (use the key symbol for this as well) then remove the second key. 3. Within 10 seconds insert the new key in the ignition and turn the ignition to "on", if you are successful the red key symbol will illuminate then extinguish after about a second. If you are not successful the red key symbol will flash repeatedly to indicate that you have inserted an invalid key. Remove the key, wait a minute and try it again, it took me a few times to get it perfect and I had done it before. Sorry for the delay on posting the above. Make sure the key blade itself has a 4D chip in it so it can be programmed. Chazz[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Remote Keys

    Ah throwing me into the deep end there Aidan LOL! William, I’ll check my paperwork re where to get the ‘switch blade’ key and get back to you soon. Just so you know, that as your RX8 is the same year as mine, a 2003 model, you won’t be able to use the remote features on the Key itself but programmed correctly it will start the car. So what it’ll mean is you’ll be in the same situation as me, switch blade key to start the car and the standard key fob to lock/unlock the car. I’ll get back later with details on how to get you sorted. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
