Other issues common to the Mazda RX-7 include an intermittently illuminated ABS light and engine surges on the non-turbo model. When the non-turbo Mazda RX-7 experiences engine surges, it typically follows up with a period of hesitation.

Mazda RX-7's built between the years 1990 and 1995 are at unusually high risk of developing an oil leak at a specific part of the rear of the engine. In order to gain access to the engine parts that are leaking, an automotive technician has to remove the vehicle's transmission.
