  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, new to the forum and rsx's, actually never owned a honda at all before. I've done a fair bit of searching and so far I plan to clean the IACV and throttle body. I'm reasonably mechanically inclined but don't know alot about tuners, more of an oldschool non computer type guy. Anyhow, I...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Soo normally my car idles fine. But just now I was having some fun with a GTI on US1 and after doing some pulls and some hard braking at a few red lights my idle wanted to stay between 1200-1500 RPM and was not very steady. The last hard brake I had to do I also noticed the brake pedal felt...
  3. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    My brake light came for a few weeks even though my hand brake is released. I didn't think too much of it since it's too cold. Well today, I guess the brake finally shot out. The brake pedal goes all the way to floor and little braking power. I check the fluid and it's empty. I filled it up and...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've got an 05 rsx type s. Have a problem and can't seem to figure it out. I've got abs light on. Car and steering wheel shaking under braking especially at higher speeds. Got wheels balanced. Good brake pads. Rotors were measured for runout and they were fine. What could be problem and what...

    03 RSX-S Possibly relevant mods: Mugen intake Ingalls Torque Damper JRRH Comptech Exhaust For the past year or so, I've noticed a sporadic vibration and audible sound when engine braking which is exacerbated when the road is wet. It sounds like the vibration/noise is coming from between...

    Is this the abs working? Or something's wrong with my rotor? My abs light isn't lit. The bulb is not fried as it lits up on when I start the engine. So no abs fault codes. How can I tell if my abs is working or not? Does the abs light lit up once the abs is activated? Sorry for the noob...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I've been researching this for a while now and have come up with nothing so far. Early last fall I started getting a clunk when I would accelerate hard or brake really hard. Every once in a while I will hear it over bumps when going slow. The clunk comes from the passenger front. It almost...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    This all started to happen when my abs light turned on. After that every time I would press on the break my radio would turn off. Then when I let go of the break it would just come back. Also if I turned on any other electronic device like lights or ac my radio would turn off. I recently had my...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    when going over small bumps in the pavement i can hear a clunking noise coming from the passenger side wheel well. sounds like a ball joint or tie rod.. so i replaced the ball joint. and shook the wheel side to side to see if the tie rod had any play and there isnt any.. but when going over...
  10. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    Watch "Ep3 Brake Noise" on YouTube Ep3 Brake Noise: https://youtu.be/LFZbJZWUCvw I started hearing this sound when heavy braking more frequently than before. It is identical to the sound my EG made while braking. My pads, rotors and sway bar endlinks are fairly new and no leaking calipers...

    03 Rsx Type S I/RH/E/IM Reflash Lowering Springs Subframe X Brace Front Sway Bar Two Rear Tie Bars (I guess that's what they're called. They're right behind the back seats) Okay, so I've posted on here before and got great responses, but unfortunately, I still have a popping sound that seems to...

    Honestly, I have no idea why this may be. My brakes work very well, but every now and then I get a low humming from my brakes. could this be because they are over heating? Thanks for ur time

  16. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    It won't be a few days until I have time to take the car into a shop to have it looked at, so for now I'm wondering if this is at all a common problem with RSXs ('02 base auto in question). Every now and then, typically when going over a bump or sharp turn under braking, I'll get a metallic...
  17. Auto X & Road Racing
    I have long felt I need to develop the ability to use left foot braking while autocrossing. I think with my car it would be beneficial. So, I have been practicing. I really like the added control it gives to trail braking, I can also modulate the wheel spin coming out of the corner better with...
  18. General RSX Discussion
    As the title says, I'm just curious how many people (if any) uses engine braking over normal braking. Talked about it a little and kinda curious as to how to do it properly w/o destroying your clutch. Kinda been messing around with it. Don't wana break anything though...
