  2. Check engine lights and O2 sensors

    The DIY Garage EP3
    Got a diagnostics on my ep3. I got a bad o2 sensor (sensor 2) and an evap code. (Meaning that gas is leaking somewhere). Smelled my gas cap area, super stinky due to a bad seal on the original gas cap. So I bought a new gas cap and the check engine light went off! What about my o2 sensor...

  9. Does the check engine light ever throw false alarm with bad O2 sensor?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Yesterday morning the CEL came on while driving and I drove right to the repair shop. Repair tech plugs in an OBD and tells me it looks like a bad O2 sensor, but since he can't work on it right away he turns off the CEL and tells me to come back if the CEL comes back on and he will test the O2...

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi, so I saw a local Craigslist ad for type R Recaros but I'm not sure how much they're really worth with the damage on it. It's originally a passenger seat, so it's a driver's side seat here. Would appreciate it if you guys could give an estimate of how much it's really worth. And sorry if...

    New Member Introduction RSX

I usually buy my cars new, so I don't have a lot of experience researching a 13-yr-old car. When and if I have a mechanic check the...
  12. Check Engine 301,302,300

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Lately I've been getting check engine light P0300,301 or 302 else. As soon as I switch my spark plugs it goes away... I think it's a bit excessive that I switch them every 2 months. I got new coils 6 months ago, and I buy the ngk top end plugs... Does anyone know what it can be?

    Problems & Solutions RSX

  15. possible misfire, no check engine light

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    A few weeks ago, my car began to jolt out nowhere. It does it regularly at 3k to 4k rpms. I have replaced the tps which helped for a couple of weeks, then I also clean the iac valve which helped for a short period of time as well, but the problem kept coming back. Just today I swapped the spark...

  20. Blinking Check Enging Light then solid

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have had an issue where the CEL blinks while driving and turns solid afterwards. I pulled the codes and they were cylinder misfires in #2, #4, and a random misfire. At this moment, the CEL also has disappeared and the car is driving great. I have not checked the plugs/coil-packs/injectors...
