  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hullo. I bought this car a year back and have had a bunch of issues with it, but I've gotten most of them fixed. I had the power steering pump, batter, and alternator replaced and then a leak in my power steering started happening. I took it to a mechanic and they tightened the power steering...

    I'm changing my transmission fluid out soon and the amsoil sycromesh is $35 on Amazon so I'm thinking of getting royal purples transmission fluid and want to know if anyone has any opinions for or against it.

    This first pic is how I test mounted it but it looks like on google images people were facing it the opposite direction with the fan facing out, I figured the fan should be facing in because it pulls air through the cooler fins so it would be pulling air the same direction as the radiator...

    I bought a somewhat low mileage type s back in December and everything’s completely mint besides that famous 3rd gear wall. It’s not bad all but I think it’s time to change the gear oil anyways and I think it might help. What do you guys recommend I run ?

    I'm feeling a vibration on takeoff in 1st gear directly under my seat where the trans is. My trans fluid is clear, not burnt or dirty in the least, car otherwise shifts very smooth, no hesitation or shuddering or confusion on auto downshifts altho i feel a very VERY slight jolt or jerk on stand...

    So my power steering pump started to squeak, I replaced the o-rings on power steering the noise is reduced but i can still hear it maybe it takes a while to go away. Anyway, my main concern is that when i was flushing power steering fluid, it was coming out in very thick form in my draining...

    I just picked up an 04 type s that needs a clutch. I'm going to be changing the tranny fluid at the same time and I was hoping to get some input on what some of you are running and what your experiences are with different tranny fluids. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

    Hi guys, Did something really stupid and not sure if it will ruin my engine. I was doing an oil change and accidentally grabbed the wrong bottle of fluid. I grabbed the 1 litre Honda ATF and poured maybe around 50 to 100 ml into the engine oil area. There was no oil inside as it was drained...

    Hey guys, Just have a quick question about the brake fluid flushing. I was thinking of buying some cheaper brake fluids to flush the system with, before using the more pricier Honda OEM Dot 3 Brake Fluids to fill up. I am planning to buy 3-4 bottles of the 1L Honda OEM Brake Fluids and maybe...

    Anyone have experience with burnt trans fluid in an auto tranny? Change or not to change? If change, gradual change and mix with old fluid, or complete change with new? Flush is out of the question since it seems that will lead to a failed tranny pretty quickly.
