Re: RX8 now...... but whats your car history?

I've no idea how many different cars I've driven, or bikes I've ridden :-k
I should have started counting 51 years ago :roll:

The first car I rolled was a Renault Dauphine, aged 12 (that's both me and the car) #-o

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

They can also put a lot of strain on the hinges, so don't be surprised if the shut-line at the rear of the bonnet opens up.

No OMP, only premix, so engine oil could be synthetic.

Re: Engine Oil Pressure Switch upgrade

There may be legitimate instances where the oil pressure momentarily drops between 0.4-1bar. Would you want the PCM to switch into limp mode? There must be a reason why Mazda choose a 0.4bar switch and it's not going to be to save money, so how is a higher switch "an upgrade"? Mazda have made some p...

Re: Diagnostic scanner

Yes, iphone bluetooth implementations are notorious for being flaky, so peer-peer wifi usually works better with them.

Bluetooth works fine with (virtually) all android devices.

My WinXP laptop was also happier using BT.

I've not tried Windows phone (why would you?)

Re: Engine Oil Pressure Switch upgrade

If you want to display real oil pressure than you need either; - a variable oil pressure sensor, either on a sandwich plate or T-eed into the original pressure switch take-off, and a dedicated oil pressure gauge or - a variable oil pressure transducer, fitted as above with an CANbus encoder, so it c...

Re: Engine Oil Pressure Switch upgrade

The "gauge" only has two positions, "off" and "normal" based on the input from the pressure switch, being either On or Off, and is driven by the PCM Varying the voltage to the gauge doesn't vary the position of the needle, by any relative scale, so changing the pressure switch wouldn't help. Worse t...

Re: Wiggles Galaxy grey 231

A neighbour where we used to live found a dent in the side of his van and another on the roof at the other side. CCTV footage from the other side of the road showed a fence panel, complete with post, come hurtling down the street, into the van, then cartwheel over the top, before disappearing across...

Re: Overheating problem

There could be a split in any of the hoses, including the one to the tank.

The cooling system relies on pressure to allow it to run at 115C without boiling.
Anything that allows pressure to escape will cause it to boil over.

Re: Overheating problem

Had you previously topped up the coolant? Simply over-filling can cause those symptoms.

Unfortunately, so can an internal coolant seal failure.

Re: can anyone help with a engine fuse problem?

That method is good for most circuits but I'd be a bit wary doing it on a circuit that includes the PCM, as it doesn't like being supplied with low voltage i.e. 12V less the drop through the bulb.

Re: can anyone help with a engine fuse problem?

Your biggest problem is that the fuse doesn't blow immediately, every time, so you have some intermittent variable. One thing that's always a variable is how you sit in the drivers seat, so it could be something to do with the airbag system that runs under the seat. Otherwise you're looking at a fra...

It's very satisfying to clean/polish half of something or one of a pair, so you can really see the difference.

Only problem is... you then have to do the other half...
