    What’s up guys, New to the forum, I just got my 06 Type S last week. When I test drove the car everything seemed fine, I didn’t hear anything, or I chose not to hear it because I really wanted the car.....:vtec: So over the course of this past week I’ve slowly been pinpointing little things...

    Just as the title states my rsx slightly hesitates when Vtec hits. If I put it to the floor I don't feel it hesitate. Also when I start my car cold it grinds for a couple seconds. Replaced my starter thinking it was that and it still grinds. I've Read it could possibly be a TCT but I replaced it...
  5. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I rebuilt my transmission 6 years ago and added a TSX 6th gear to my 5spd EP3 tranny. I replaced a blown 2nd gear and any synchros that needed it. Upon assembly, from the first time I drove it post rebuild, 5th gear would not stay in unless I was completely off the gas. As soon as I touch the...

    HELP: Sometimes car "judders" or has a slight wheel hop when accelerating from a stop Its the same feeling you get if you accidently leave the hand brake up and try to take off from a stop, but not as bad. Its like a mild wheel hop. I checked all the brakes and none of them are sticking, pads...

    I've searched and found no results on this exact issue. It sounds like the grinding is coming from front driver side and now also the front passenger side wheel wells simultaneously. Only happens when I start accelerating from a stop and goes away after a few seconds. It sounds like a...

    Alright so basically when I first bought my rsx type s a month into it my car started jerking back and fourth while driving and the rpms would bounce, it went away after a while and now recently I changed my tps and plugged in a O2 sensor that was unplugged and then the problem came to haunt me...

    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. So I went to the dealer and bought a brand new stock TB and had my mechanic install it. After the...

    2002 Acura RSX Type S 90k miles. I am wondering if this could be a sign of a clutch replacement? When I am accelerating I can hear a faint scratchy / "staticky" noise coming from under the hood, the same noise occurs when I am decelerating when I release the pedal. However, I dont feel any...
