Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've never had a nice car and I'm new
at rotary engines. Oil? Gas? Which
air intake to buy that's best? Normal
maintenance? I love my car just want
to do it right so I don't go through a
hundred Motors. I'm a single parent
of two so expert advice please?!?!

Agreed, but it sounds like you don't work on cars. You best bet is to have a local shop go over the car to get it running right. Whoever put the other motor in might not have hooked things up properly. You will be chasing the codes and issues for a long time if you don't. Those codes are generic codes and it will be hard to know which part or parts are the issue without some diagnosis.

Tom, I took my mazda to dealer the same day engine light came on. It said same stuff and cost 125$ secondary air intake pump. And fuse. But after that guy said not to worry but to get replaced when I have time. 2days after that is when the rough idle and stalling started. Goin to try cleaning intake sensor and see what that does. Also do u know anything about cleaning out carb.? Seafoam or and lube oil due to friction? And using mobile 1 5w20 oil as well as 98gas... Good bad what's ur take?
