  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I’ve recently been having this issue with my base 02 rsx where the car won’t start after not driving it for 3 days. Originally I thought my battery was bad but after replacing the battery the problem continued. I started to do a parasitic draw test to see if something was always getting power...

    I recently got my motor replaced at 159K miles, no issues there besides a CEL for knock sensor. When driving under 60 MPH and below 3500 RPM there is no problem, but when I go over 3500 RPM the light will flash on or sometimes stay on, and sometimes the lights will dim and battery will die...

  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I recently installed a Megan Race Header (one piece). We didn't have a gasket between the header & my exhaust, but everything else was completed so just bolted it on without one. Needless to say my car sounds like a fluttering helicopter and the exhaust fumes are slowly killing my...

He mentioned that they make a "dying kit" for plastic and then you can paint over it so if it would ever chip...

    What is your opinion on the oil spill? Do you think is was an "accident" or was it done on purpose with a motive behind it? Also, do you think what Obama is doing about the situation right or wrong? This disaster could result it more taxes and higher gas prices in the future. BP management...
