hi, ive had a quick look through the threads and cant see this, ive de flooded a number of rx8's and this is by far the best method, sorry if someone has posted this. Firstly dont hold me responsible if you break anything.
1. Remove rear nearside seat (pulls off)
2. Underneath you will find a silver plate held in by four screws (phillips). Remove this
3. You will find the fuel pump and the plug, unplug the plug
4.Crank the car for no more than 20 secs holding the throttle 1/3 of the way down
5. Leave for 10 secs
6. after the first or second attempt you will hear the car regain compression
7. After around 10 secs you will hear the car try to start, PLUG IN THE FUEL PUMP SENSOR !!
8. The car should start, if not follow this again
9. when started, dont floor the car but give reasonable revs to clear the cat, dont worry about the smoke too much its clearing out the ****.
worked in about 5 mins as apose to the 2 hour job with the fuse, spark plug and mazda handbook method

The easiest way to start a flooded MT RX8 is to pull start it...no question

Oldest trick in the book, even (for a piston engine) with a weak starter and/or dead battery. But... what if it's an automatic transmission? I've alway wondered if the car can be push/pull started in neutral then into "DRIVE"; also, how can one determine the amount of unburnt fuel dumped into the catalytic converter that would eventually cause it to actually clog and fail?
