Mazda RX-7 Problems

An oil leak can develop at the rear stationary gear seal and O-ring, at the rear of the engine. Our technicians report that transmission removal is required to gain access to the components.

If the engine intermittently does not start and is cranking OK, it may be the main relay is defective. The main relay can corrode and fail, requiring replacement.

If the ABS light is on intermittently, it may be due to a loose ABS ring on the rear axle. If a loose ABS ring is found during inspection, replacement of the ABS ring and affected drive axle may be necessary.

Mazda RX-7 Reviews

This is a very unique vehicle. The rotory engine operates better at higher rpm than a conventional piston engine. Another highlight is the rear wheel drive that it has as rear wheel drive is getting harder and harder to find. Comfort was second to speed and looks in design.
