Helpful tips

Always use high octane fuel. It may cost more but it will return a better MPG , more importantly it will keep the inside of your engine clean and keep you from having problems in the future.


Never use a fully synthetic oil. Try and use a fully mineral 10-40 oil as this will burn properly inside the engine and help against carbon build up. Change your oil and filter every 3,000 miles.


Most important is the way you turn off your RX8

To shut the engine off while it is still cold, rev the engine to 4000-5000 rpm, turn the engine off and fully depress the throttle. This will clear any unburnt fuel from the engine that would cause it to flood. When you start the car depress the clutch fully and turn the key until the engine starts. Do not touch the throttle!!


Use two-stroke oil

Always a good idea to pre-mix your fuel. If you ever make short trips or flood the engine the extra fuel will remove the protective oil film on the inside of the engine.

You may also cause excessive wear if any of your oil feed pipes get blocked or damaged. This is the cause of most low compression problems. Using two-stroke oil in with the fuel insures there is always a protective layer, keeping your apex seals from wear. 


Check your coils

Get your mechanic to check your coils as regularly as possible. They should be changed every 30,000 miles. A failing coil will cause the engine to over fuel removing the protective oil film inside the engine and can also burn out your catalytic converter.

    Alex rotary did a fantastic job of my engine re-build, my rx8 has never driven so well. Would highly recommend to anybody with a rotary. A massive thanks to Daniel, Vicky and the team, I will defiantly be using you again.

    I cannot recommend Apex enough. They did an amazing job on my car and went well beyond what any garage has ever done for me.

    I had an rx8 with a dead engine which a friend needed replacing. Once I'd removed the engine and given it to Apex, the service was sublime! I delivered the engine to them at 10.00 am Saturday morning, and got a phone call saying the engine was finished at 11.30 am Monday morning. Top service from top guys full of helpful advice and information. WILL be returning!

    Just bought one today which Apex rebuilt in Feb 2014. They have honored the warranty to be transferred over to me. Great help and advise over the phone. Think I'll stick with you guys for future work and I guess it's gonna be quite often

  • Mohammed Gaffar (Tuesday, December 16 14 09:15 pm GMT)

    I had an engine rebuild in Aug 14 for my beloved 54 plate RX8 which I have now owned for 8 years. Cannot fault the ApexRotary team of engineers. Fantastic job. Developed a slight problem on starting a few days back. ApexRotary had me back on the road in the blink of an eye as the coils needed replacing. They even sorted out one of my headlamps which was cloudy. These guys are honest, hardworking, happy people who deliver efficiently and cost effectively as it states on the tin. Thank you to Vicky and the team at ApexRotary, keep up the good work.
