luke murdoch is mobile. and travels the entire country.
Ok, I'll contact him, to find out if he would like a long trip.
But I had better check where the problem lies first.
And I do have an experienced garage nearby, and it's downhill all the way.

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

There's an obvious coat of oil on the nearside front suspension arm, part of the steering rack concertina gaiter, and on the inside of the nearside wheel arch. I know I have a rusty sump and I'm intending to replace that; but also I have rusty oil cooler p...

After 3 weeks standing on the drive, it started almost as easily as normal. :)

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

Ah, thanks. I couldn't see an address on their Facebook page and the website listed there just leads to a holding page, so I landed up finding the registered address which obviously isn't the same place as their place of business.

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

So it looks like I've been [very?] lucky with mine (assuming Big Pete uses the standard testing procedure), as his figures are at [or normalised to] 250 rpm.

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

You should be able to read a multimeter reading while cranking and/or starting the engine and you could do a test from cold and then after a journey and see if the voltage while cranking is different.

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