Answer 1
That's probably OK, try checking for the condensation when the engine hot right after a good run. I don't think you should see signs of water then. If you do, I'd want to check out the crankcase vintilation system to be sure it's clean and clear. I think the weather's been wet and cold in your parts so some condensation is fairly normal. If you see any signs of coolant, that's another story. -

Be sure to check your owner's manual and use the correct engine oil. Mazda does not recommend using synthetic oil in the RX-8's rotary engine.
