1987 MAZDA RX7
\015 MY MAZDA TURNS OVER BUT DOESNT STAY OVER. IT WILL DIE AND 1500 RPM. IDK WHY AND ITS STARTING TO GET TO ME BAD. SO CAN U HELP ME OUT?\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012ATF trick worked.... Thanks, BUT\015\012Engine ran for about 5 min. Smoked cleared and started idling for a while.\015\012then engine would rev up and down from 1000 to 1500 rpm.....\015\012All was looking good...oil presure, Temp and alternator charge.\015\012After letting run for the time mention, I tried to put it in drive and then as it went into gear the engine idle down and stalled after 2 to 3 seconds.\015\012Tried to start agian but no luck.....\015\012First thanks for the ATF trick...car I believed hasn't run in 3 to 4 years.\015\012Ran smooth except for the reving up thing.\015\0121. Should I do the ATF trick agian to get it started?\015\0122. the idle screw on top of the throttle intake, can I turn it to turn down the idle\015\0123. Does this defenitly mean I have a compression problem or that the seal could have beendried out from sitting for the past 3-4 years.\015
What ever you do. do not touch the idel screw on top of the intake manifold it will **** everything up real quick
1. im not sure what the ATF trick is\015\0122. yes that is correct\015\0123. no theres a few different things it could be. it most certanly could be though. it doesnt take long for a rotary engine to get messed up if its sitting. take it to a mechanic to get a compresion test that will help you determine whats up.
