  2. The DIY Garage RSX
    Well fellas I've been lurking here a while, especially as my '04 is beginning it feel its age. So far I've been paying extra to get OEM parts through acurapartswarehouse.com. I know it's sometimes important to go OEM (like my off-brand gas cap that didn't properly seal), but my wallet is also...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So a few weeks back my CMC/Slave went and I lost the clutch. I drove it 10 miles home after. Now, I was a bit too desperate and went the "drive without a clutch" route as it was 10 miles with 9.5 being highway. I slowly encouraging it into gear, then managed to get up to speed and into 6th...
  4. General Discussion EP3
    Ok guys, after some thorough research on here and searching throughout the Web I'm having a hard time finding this item. A couple of the L.E.D.s in the brake light on my Type R spoiler have gone out. I want to replace the entire light assembly, but can't seem to find it anywhere. Only people...

  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Figure I would post this here because this issue plagued me for almost 2 years before I figured out the cause. I wasn't able to shift into 3rd or 5th gear. 1st was iffy. 2nd, 4th, 6th, and R worked just fine. Mechanics told me it was the clutch, or the master cylinder/slave cylinder, the...

    For the past 2 years we had these meets once a year and its always been a blast. Meeting old friends, making new friends, BBQ, and just having a great time. I know most people may not have an RSX anymore but why stop making another meet? July 10th seemed to be the best date for most people to...

    After i installed my plm header my 1st and 2nd gear drop to 6k rpm normal but my 3rd gear drop to 5k rpm sometime 5.5 rpm. Anyone know what's going on? By the way I only had one o2 sensor plug in but not my secondary sensor.
  12. Problems & Solutions EP3
    Lately I've noticed it has gotten hard to get into 3rd and 4th gear. There is no grinding, but you need to be patient and use some pressure before it will go into gear. It's fine when cold, but after a half mile or so begins. Also, I only notice the problem when upshifting. Downshifts are still...
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My 3rd gear is completely gone, wanted to see if I could get everyones opinion on what I should do next. Generally I have very limited time but should I rebuild my current trans (w/ carbon synchros) or just buy another OEM one. My mod list is below and my im currently at a 9k rev limit. I run...
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    IfA few months back my 3rd gear locked into place there was no way to pull it out so I ended up buying syncro tech rebuild kit so I replaced the bearing seals and noticed my 2nd gear and 3rd gear were pretty worn down. So I bought a new 2nd gear and 3rd gear and 1-2 slider ring from syncrotech...

  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I recently replaced my oem clutch on my RSX with an Exedy Stage 2. We put everything back together and took it for a drive and I have difficulty going into 3rd and 5th gear. In order to get the gears to go in, you have to push really hard and hold the clutch all the way in (if I try to push it...
  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I know a lot of RSX's have this problem. But what I am wanting to know is what parts do I need to buy to fix this problem? I don't want to take it to the dealer and pay 900-1100$ on a synchro replacement. Labor on tranny work is ridiculous. But anyways, if someone could help that would be great...

    Hello, so I was having a CEL which was pointing out to the tps having high voltage and it was because the type s I bought had an after market tb and the sensor could not be calibrated within spec.
