RX-8 low rpm rumble


Asked by Jan 03, 2014 at 06:36 PM about the 2007 Mazda RX-8 Grand Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I press the accelerator the car starts a slight rumble between 1000 and 1500. The
car runs perfectly fine after that and has a perfect idle. Sounds like it is coming from the
glove box area.
