My rx8 when i turn on the car it takes a long time for the heat to come on. The antifreeze is full and when I return to the car an hour after driving shut off park and return the car is as hot as a oven. Ideas?

Also a few other things the brake works but needs to be replaced, Anyone have theirs replaced? Expensive?

So pissed off, I had to get an oil change recently and the auto place lost my engine bay cover but I cant prove it and they wont replace it. I had a backup cover that was given to me but my parents might have trashed it not knowing what it was in the garage.

car is hot after driving as in the cabin? check your cat if you have one. try flushing the heater core

yes its easy and no different than any other car. the rear pistons screw in not press in which requires a tool other than a c clamp. most over look these steps but serivice you caliper pins and and de burr the "ears" on the pads to make sure they slide freely in the brackets

Yes, I was going to have my own mechanic do it but he complained that he has too many cars he was working on at the time. So..go fig. I didn't look under the hood till a month later until the coolant light came up cause, the freaking guy didn't close the coolant cap ALL the way when checking all fluids.

New member question. Oil metering pump?

Hey everyone! New here and my 2009 rx8. To make it short, she was sitting for roughly 3-4 weeks because of a trans issue. Switched to a midpipe as well. Here's the issue... turned it on andgot think white smoke out the back. Not really a rough idle and would go above 3 thousand rpms. PLEASE HELP. This hasn't discouraged me or anything, just miss driving.
