    Update. I just got a gallon of Shell V Power 93 Octane and put it in the tank! It started and so much white smoke I could no see! I kept it reved at around 4000 rpms until the smoke was cleared then the tach meter went down pretty fast and it stalled. Got it started again, took longer, and same stall out. Then when I continued to try to get it started again it just would not turn over and was straining to start and a hear a few grinds like metal on metal when it almost started and then I stopped. What is wrong with my poor RX7? Someone help? Is it a sensor of some sort and if so what and where is it under the hood and what do I do to trouble shoot? Thanks for helping someone out there.

    Part II: I used some STP additive to take out any water and clean any corrosion etc. still cranked, but did not turn over. The I was told Seafoam may do the trick. I used 8 ounces in the few gallons left in the tank and that almost made it start but it did not. Then I changed the 4 spark plugs using the correct original plugs and that did not start it. Then I figured I would get someone to change the fuel filter and I got the OE and we did that, primed it, still cranked beautifully and did not start up. Now I am clueless and I need help from someone. WHAT DO I DO NEXT? I read so much on the net but have no idea what to do next. I am David and you can always email me at Bartharlowi AT yahoo.com I feel that the fuel sitting is all that could have gone wrong, but why is it that with a new clean fuel filter it still is not starting. The person that helped put in the fuel filter confirmed he hears the fuel pump working. HELP PLEASE SOMEONE

    PartI: I have a 1990 Mazda RX7 GXL. I am new to this site and registered years ago now finally need help from a knowledgable user with the same year and make car I have. I am the only owner and rarely have driven the car after the first few years that I put on a few 10ks each year, but always warmed it up through the year and took a mile or two drive. I know have 33k miles on it. It was regularly services during the first 5 years b Mazda dealerships. Never had a single problem with the car. This past winter I did NOT warm it up enough and the last few times I started it up several months ago it put out a little white smoke and then it cleared up. It got to a point where when I drove it it wanted to stall out and finally got to a point where I had to rev it so hard to keep it from stalling. Then it got to a point where it would not turn over. Cranks like new but will not turn over. Gas was down to a few gallons thank God so I asked around what to do.
