Anyway, my RX8 is doing this noise when starting (cold or not):

Anyone has idea what this might be? I read a couple of posts in this thread and didn't find anything similar. The car always starts and works well after, however I don't think this is normal...

Thank you all!
It's hard to tell from a video, but it could be bearings going bad.
Try to use a piece of tubing to your ear or a mechanic's stethoscope to pinpoint it.

Starts but won't hold idle

Hey thanks for the info. I haven't tried a compression test simply because I'm worried to drive my car out the driveway in its condition.
I can't figure out why it won't hold idle. Starts great, but dies if I don't hold the gas down. Opinions??

2004 RX-8
Brand new: Air Filter, Coils, Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Starter, Battery, Oil, Coolant, and Fuel.
I cleaned the MAF Sensor
My fuel pump/filter is 3 years old.

Put a code reader on and see if any codes come up.

Bad Purchase

I took your advice and bought the little OBD II Mini. Those guys sent me a mini-disk to get the instructions (yeah, like GameCube)... Neither of my computers take them. Tried to simply use bluetooth but never recognized it. So I'll get back to you when I can get a good read, but I know for certain the O2 sensor was showing up before I parked it a couple months ago.
