In 4th gear the clutch grinds only at high rpm and all the other gears shift great the gearbox is also making a little bit of noise. I had the transmission looked at and its fine. Do I need to add trans fluid or clutch fluid?
Only add fluid if it is low. It would be helpful to know the year of your Mazda RX8. If the fluid is red, use ATF if it is clear, use gear oil. Manual gear box holds 3.6 quatrs.
When trying to get the car inspected was told the diagnostic plug in was not working. They were using a machine that powered off of my battery. I was told to go somewhere that the diagnostic machine had it’s own battery. Is this possible? This was in Austin, Texas
Most likely your ROOM Fuse (15amp) is blown. This would make the diagnostic plug unable to read it. They may also have a bad machine and had nothing to do with your vehicle or your vehicles Data Link Connector. Some auto repair shops just don’t spend the money on good equipment and have to refer you to another shop that has better equipment.

While on break I started my car to listen to the radio and keep warm. After 10 minutes, it cut off. I checked the fuel pump to see that it is working. I check the spark plugs and found no electricity was flowing. I cleaned under the distributor cap and replaced the rotor. Still it won’t start.
Check your fuses and the main relay. Then check the condenser. Check coil and then the Crank sensor and camshaft sensor. Then the PCM. Use the wiring diagrams below to help trace the issue.
I have a 2006 Mazda 6 V6. The car will not crank. New Battery, Starter is good, as well as the alternator. When I try and start the car, there is no click to the starter/solenoid at all. I thought it might be the starter relay but those are fine as well, as they work in other spots. When I try and start the car with the lights on, the headlights do not dim. What could the issue be?
Could be a wiring issue. Could be one of the two starter relays, yes there are two. Could be the 15 amp meter fuse or one of the two key fuses or the main 120 amp fuse.
Confirm you have battery negative at the starter assembly
Check for battery positive at the “S” terminal on the starter while someone holds the ignition key in the “START” position
If both battery positive and negative are found, replace the starter
If battery positive or negative are not found, check fuses and relays and then the wiring itself

Hi. I was having problems with my mazda. It was not working on drive only on reverse and second gear so i had it replaced with a used one and the same problem exists. I’m so frustrated. My Mazda still only runs on reverse and second gear. Any advice?
