Bloody HellFirst Phelan, now my car... I've been driving a 2nd generation RX-7 for quite some time now, about 8 years. It's been one of the most reliable cars I've ever owned until the other day. I noticed the temperature gauge skyrocketing up to hot whenever I took the engine over 3000 RPMs or had it under any sort of load going up a hill. Well, today I decided to do some fishing and found both seal bits as well as metal shavings in the coolant system. My guess would be one of the coolant seals in the engine disintegrated. Either way, any sort of overheating is certain death for the wankel engine and now I'm left with a car that I'm not sure will make it to work in all the stop-and-go traffic on Monday.
