  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Throughout the years I've seen many threads without documented solutions on how to fix a poor idle. I have had surging idle issues as well as the dreaded idle dip/stall. I understand the frustrations of having such an issue but no definitive answers or guide to follow. When you attempt to fix...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I have a 2006 Type S. After installing a AEM cold air intake I reconnected the battery and the idle is bouncing around, only if I touch the gas. If I start the car and leave it alone it idles @ 1100 rpms. As soon as I touch the gas or driving once I let off it starts bouncing up to 2000 rpms...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    2004 RSX Turbo with 94k miles. Rarely driven the car in close to 3 years and after changing the gas, adding fuel stabilizer my rpms continue to bounce. When I start the car it idles at 1800rpms and there's no bounce of the rpms. Once engine is warm the bouncing starts and continues for 1k-2k...

    Hey guys, I just purchased a base model 2003 RSX a few weeks ago it's lowered with green coilovers (don't know what kind) and it has 75k miles. The day after driving it home I noticed there's was a smell of burning rubber coming from my back tires, and black stuff all over my back bumper.. 3...
  5. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hello -- I'm enjoying the relatively low mile (132K) RSX Type-S that I picked up in June. It was driven by an older person and clearly babied -- quite a gem. Anyway, I'm noticing something that I think might be the sign of a failing clutch. Every time I upshift and release the clutch the...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I haven't driven my RSX for like 4-5 years and decided to start it up. I immediately noticed rough idle. What's wrong with it? No check engine lights, nothing. On YouTube, I found the video of exact same symptom. Mine is the base model, however it does exact same thing. The rpm keeps...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys and gals I bought a 2002 rsx type s about a month ago as a dd/beater opposite my 2004 TL. Now I know the ride quality should naturally be a bit rougher compared to my TL but this RSX seems pretty ridiculous. THE MAIN PROBLEM: If I'm in a gear accelerating and hit a bump the engine...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok, couple days ago my engine was idling really low and the engine would stall once it warmed up. I took out the IACV and cleaned it. I did not take out the sensor that covers the magnetic valve. I just sprayed throttle body cleaner into the three compartments and dried it out. I cleaned out all...
  9. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So last night on my way home from work, I accelerated up to 55 in 3rd, but something weird happened after that. It happened so fast and i was panicking so I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I think when I pressed the clutch it kept revving up and was bouncing off the rev limiter in...
  10. Turbo RSX
    So i recently put a turbo on my car and I have an RBC. I had been driving the car fine with no issues and then about a week later i start hearing a very loud fluctuating whistle sound near the TB or RBC. My car revs bounce between 1k-2k rapidly. I checked all my new vacuum lines to make sure no...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So a brief description of the problem, over the past few weeks i noticed at stop lights it felt like my car was about to stall, then i noticed the RPM's bounce a little. I usually drop into neutral when stopping, as i coast to a stop my RPMS hover around 500, and when i completley stop they...

  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've started to notice recently that my car is tending to sound weak at start up after sitting for more than about an hour. And I've notice while waiting for the engine to warm up my rpm's tend to bounce slightly as the engine warms from the 2000rpms down to idle. But the bouncing appears to...
