Two areas of concern: 1). It's possible you've got too much refrigerant in there and it's messing up the pressure bad. What makes me think that is the ten minute delay. I believe that as air passes through the condenser the refrigant cools down and the pressure reduces enough to allow clutch engagement. The only way to know for sure is to conduct a ...

I pressed the switch down manually and it was able to turn over no problem. Being my first time working on an Rx-7 when i found out about the clutch cutoff ...

You can measure the OCV "open circuit voltage" of the battery by connecting a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery with the the car completely off. And NO ...

From what I've read, most manufacturers recommend changing CVT fluid every 30k miles or 24 months. You should double check with your owners manual or dealership service department for the correct fluid ...

Low Transmission Fluid: While this cannot be 100% attributed to the issue , this can also be a factor for a high mileage vehicle, normally manuals dont need as much maintainence for upto like ...

Likely to be a worn 5th gear synchronizer. Replacement can be quite expensive as the gearbox will need to be removed, then stripped for the synchronizer to be replaced. Normally as the gearbox will be removed its a good time to replace the clutch too if its not been replaced already.

Huh? Worn? I seriously doubt that. I would think you could remove and install a drain bolt 100 times without wear. (Note: I'm assuming steel oil pan here.. I guess it's possible for an aluminum oil pan to get stripped out after repeated insertions. What is your oil pan made of, aluminum or steel?) First off the primary seal for and oil drain bolt is ...
