    So before I dynod my car my tuner suggested I do an oil change but I forgot to.. On the day of the tune I brought it to him he said he can just top off and when he checked my oil I had to top off 2-3 quarts of oil. He added the 10w 40 amsoil XL and said that should help with the oil burning...

    So I recently changed my oil on my 02 RSX Type S with Castrol Edge 10w-30. I know the manual calls for 10w-20 but since it's been pretty hot I went with a thicker oil. So I did the oil change 2 months ago and now it's below half almost right to the bottom dot on the oil dip stick. I don't see...

    So I bought my type S a little over a month ago, and at the time I bought it it had no coolant in it. The car wasn't overheating or anything so I figured it was nothing, just needed coolant. So I got the price knocked down, had the dealer put some coolant in and drove home with my new car...

    I just bought my rsx for a month. And every time the car goes uphill, or when i push it a little bit, i smell a burning smell (like rubber). I kinda get freak out cuz of it. Did anyone have the same problem? By the way, my car is 06 automatic so its not the clutch. I did check the oil level...

    05 type s. I am burning 2-3qts per 350 miles. That is correct. PER fill up. I originally thought my valve stem seals were shot because the only time I see smoke is when I hit vtec. These past few weeks I haven't touched vtec all that much just to see if my oil consumption would ease up. It...
