Hello everyone,

Mazda
Rx-8
Automatic
4 plug
Petrol
(Engine was converted to Opel)

I had an engine knock in April and I tried replacing it after a month. I got the new Opel engine and the mechanic successfully replaced the new one with the bad one. Now, after it was fixed, the working of the car was not really top notch like it was, before the engine got bad. The mechanic/Rewire started doing trial and errors on what could have went wrong (changing the brain box, coil and even the fuel pump). The car starts, and stops immediately you put it on drive, and for other times, it takes a while to start.

The person who actually did the engine conversion is not presently in the country. I don’t know if I can’t get any help here.

You cant get any much help because you dont actually need much help.

Mazda RX8 is equipped with a rotary engine with the tech extremely different from what kazeem is used to. Inserting an opel engine inside the vehicle is a wrong move.

Buy the exact engine if you can find it or afford it

Sell as is or store away buy another car and restore it later when you are buoyant enough.
