mechanical advice for 13B
Submitted by No Rotor on Wednesday, July 7, 2004 - 2:42am

Have a 90 rx7 with a few problems needing fixed. Very hard to start and when running very weak in power. Bought this way so know limited history of rotary motor. What would be likely item needing fixed in order of cheapest to most expensive?

I had the same problem, I replaced the fan clutch assembly with a fan clutch from a turbo unit.I think it solved the problem

Hello my friend....
i had the same problem exactly.I bought a second hand rx8 with 4500 km...everything was ok except this gauge.I took it for inspection....the answer??The previous owner took it to a car electrician and tried to "hide" some Km!!!So,the needle of the coolant gauge was the victim of this attempt.I installed an extra gauge and everything is perfect.

I would suggest a rotary compression test. This will give you a paper trail and the only proof you're starting with a good sound basis. You will be wasting time and money if you don't do this. Second thought is a mismatched or leaking down fuel injector.I know you'll be pleased when it's running as it should.
