  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi guys, I have a 2004 base manual with ~180K miles. Lately, the gauge cluster hasn't been working when I turn on the ignition. If I pop the hood, take out one of the fuses (when I am facing the engine bay, the one located farthest from me and to the left), and wipe the contacts on my shirt a...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I cleaned my IAC valve on my 2003 base auto because of bogging, low idle issues. I put everything back together and now my idle is at 2000. It acts like a governor is cutting off gas right at 2000 rpms, but it is constantly revving to 2000. When in drive, it sits at 1300. I also unplugged my ecu...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So for a couple weeks when I started my car cold it would idle at 600 rpms and had a hard time. Would idle fine once it was warmed up tho. So I decided to clean my iac yesterday car ran fine and idled good. Started it up this morning and everything would ok. Then I just now get in it and it...
  4. 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...

  6. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    So I've been pretty oblivious about cleaning my intake filter over the past nine years. At 120k, I FINALLY cleaned and oiled it with the K&N kit, thinking I may see a slight increase in my performance and fuel economy...but nope... I used to get 300+ miles on a tank before the gas light would...

This really is a great deal I spent a LOT of time perfecting everything and now it's time to part ways to make room for my new car. Price is 2,500 OBO **NEED THIS GONE ASAP DUE TO COLLEGE** ALL PRICES WILL...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    UPDATED JUNE 14, 2011 Okay so I took some time last night to figure out the problem again. Turns out the IAC valve was still messed. I discovered this by covering the small hole inside the TB. As soon as I did this, the idle went down and stabalized. I took the TB, IAC valve and IAC sensor...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I was having a low idle issue so I cleaned the throttle body, IACV, and replaced the throttle body gasket and reset ECU properly. Now when car is not completely at operating temperature the idle is around 1800 ONLY when at not dead stop(throwing in neutral after accelerating). When at dead stop...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I can't believe I'm having this problem. I took out my cabin filters, shook them out and put them back in. Now when the a/c is turned on, even on the strongest setting it just barely blows anything out. I flipped the filters around and tried each way and still nothing. I left the glovebox...

  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Just like title says, I cleaned my IACV a couple days ago and just noticed yesterday that hot air doesn't come out of the vents. I get air, but no matter what temp I put it at, it is always cold. Is there anything I could have unplugged/broken when getting to the throttle body that relates to heat?

    Should I get new wheels????
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Like the title said i cleaned my iacv hoping it would fix my idle but it didnt do anything. When im driving and push the clutch in my revs drop down to 800 then goes up to 1100 then drops back down to 800, only when im driving though not reving, and also my car bogs down a little when taking off...
  15. Car Care Showoff RSX
    It saddens me that it will need to be repainted. It just as too many imperfections that I can't do anything about and the the rear end has been repainted before and it's starting to show. With that said, I just stripped the wax, hit it with a quick pass of M205 and sealed it with Blackfire Wet...

  17. Car Care RSX
    I have cleaned the seats according to instruction of both Lexol cleaner and conditioner for my leather seats. The problem is a few hours after or even the next day the seats get sticky and pick up lint every way imaginable and my black seats get dirty within a week. Does anyone else get this?
