10w30....in an rx8......are you sure

Mazda state that only 5w30 oils should be used, and Dexelia oils are the only ones that maxda reccomend !
#2
Is it a wankel engine in there? 10w would be a bit thick for that wouldnt it????
#3
dexelia thats the stuff i was told thanx for putin me straight
#5
yeah wankel engine ,no jokes please:whistling:
#6
how much does it use.......ive seen them drink a litre in 500 miles before......all depends how you drive !!!

and, as friction is so crutial to the rotors, the wrong oil WILL result in a loss of power, and after a short period of time....seizure !

hmmm.. i've got probs of my own.. i have an FTO and the tiptronic gearbox neutral light flashes and it sticks in 3rd gear... frightened that it might cost over a grand as soon as the word gearbox is mentioned.

If that's how you feel then i'd suggest you get rid of it before it goes wrong because you couldn't be bothered to check it:? Wankels need love and attention:w00t:

It's your car how much do you want for it?

How many owners has it had, has it ever had any paintwork done at any time and what was the mileage and date of the last mazda service?

Letting bristol street motors service it will do you no good either. They don't even understand the concept of a wankel engine and nor do they need to.

im second owner ,back wheel arch has a ding and back bumper has a scuff on corner im not 2 good a parking,i seenyour links but the car stands me to about £8500-9000 apart from the things ive just listed its fab condition like i say not desperate to sell or need to just came about talkin bout this from the oil question but the car as a package cost me 6000 plus my jag,so i cant give it away
#17
I'm not saying you should give it away. All I am saying is the rx8 is no everyday car that can be taken for granted you don't need to check the oil and send it to an everyday garage to be serviced. If you do not look after it it will cost you dearly. Looks to me like you should have bought a lexus for reliability, as you are not willing to look after a complex engine that the average mechanic has no idea about, didn't you see the look on their faces when it came up as a 1.3:thinking:
