My ODBII port is pretty much shot. I have to wiggle the connector around for about 10 minutes before I can get a signal. I've seen a few people mention issues with the odb port, but couldn't manage to find any solutions.

Is there a common cause of issues around the port in our cars? I'm trying to avoid having to replace the connector itself at this point.

Some OBD2 adapters are loose. Try a different one. They're $4 on eBay.

I have two adapters, two cables hooked up to breadboards, and my accessport. They all exhibit the same behavior. It's definitely the socket itself. I guess I may as well just bite the bullet and repin it.

It could be a number of different things but if it is the original starter they are a known weak spot on the 04-08's. From your video it sure doesn't sound like the engine is turning over at the right RPM so that's my best guess.

If you need a starter, this is the latest OEM starter (third generation), same as came in series 2 RX8s 2009-2012 ,but no worry, it is a direct fit into any RX8 2004-2012. I bought it and put it into my 2008 RX8 and it is super.

It is made by Mitsubishi for Mazda, and Walmart has it new at a very reasonable price, much less than a dealer would want. Get it new and not a refurbished one. I bought mine online and had it shipped free to my house, (but you could have it shipped to your local Walmart for pickup,at no extra cost). Then I had my dealer install it at same time he was putting in a new front O2 sensor, with no hassles from them at all. About one hours' labor to install.

Any decent car wrench or you could install it.

Starting the Engine
• Starter
• Battery
• Engine Compression
• Grounding Wires
• Ignition Coils
• Spark Plugs
• Spark Plug Wires
• Fuel Pump
• Fuel Injectors

Idk if its a dumb question

This may be kind of long.

So car was running fine until throw out bearing went out. So i changed all clutch components and battery ended up being done for also then starter and then wasnt getting soark so i did full tune up now getting a crank sensor code i know thats the ess but ive changed it for different times and i still get the code. My leads wont spark unless i do the 20 break stomp reset and clear clode with my scanner but then inky ine strong spark. I have also tried deflooding. I love this car but im at a loss on it right now.

p.s. all thoughts and ideas are welcome.
