okay so my fiance has a 2004 Mazda RX8. we think its flooded. lets see if anybody else agrees. he had to move his car the other day. he moved it quickly then cut the engine. he said that when its cold, it idles high, and its bad to turn it off when its idling that way. it was at about 3,000 rpms he said. he shut it off without thinking about that. well, now it wont start. it tries to, but wont fully start. it sounds horrible to me. when he tries to start it, white smoke comes out of the tail pipe. not an extremely excessive amount, but you can clearly see it. i dont know what it could be.

i have an rx-8 2003 automatic and yesterday i wanted to get the car and go for work. The car was not started for 2 days and when i wanted to start the engine i could not. i thought that was the battery because it was old and i changed it but the same problem again.
so i took out the 4 sparks and were full of petrol. i cleaned them and i put them back again, and left the car for 2 hours and start it again. the car again cannot start. i dont know what is happening? i check also the coils and all are good. i am so disapointed of this problem. i dont know what else to check. anybody else knows?
