Having problems with your 2004 Mazda RX-8 ?
RX-8 rough starting under all conditions
\015 At starting the engine misfires once or twice, makes a short screech sound and then starts up. Idles seems fine, runs fine, but over time the battery is slowly drained and alternator dies. Just replaced alternator and battery but same rough starting problem persists.\015
If u happen 2 have an amp and subwoofers it will drain ur battery over time without a compasitor.as far as the screeching try rubbing a bar of soap on the inside of the belts while the car is off.also check spark plugs are at the right gap specs.
