  1. Gas Tank Shifted Backwards 05-06 vs. 02-04

    Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I didnt know that 05-06 models have the gas tank shifted backwards about 5"-6", Honda did it for better weight distribution I guess. Mine is an 02 and I want to shift mine back as far as possible. Not sure if I need the 05-06 tank, straps, and brackets.... I need to check my tank and see if I...

    New Member Introduction RSX
    I have a RSX Base, 2006. In the owners manual it says regular gas in recommended for the car. When I put Plus gas I feel the pedal being more responsive to foot.

  4. Burning gas/ low mpg / bad gas smell

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, i've had this problem since the day I bought my car and I initially thought it was the smell of burning oil and since then i've fixed the small oil leak that I previously had.

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've notice the past couple times I went to drive my 02 type-s that when I go to accelerate the rpm's will go up but my car doesn't go anywhere.

  10. Does this sound like bad gas? Low rpms/weird exhaust tone

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    This morning I went to start my car, it rained the night before and it was covered in condensation. It started right up but it sounded off. It was idling at 500 rpms and it sounded like a lawn mower when I would give it some gas. The rpms would go as low as 300 and come back to 500 after a rev...
  11. Shell Gas Horrible?

    ECU Tuning RSX
    Hey, so today I went to get a reflash at Church's automotive in Wilmington and the guy told me whatever I do don't put Shell gas in because it causes knocks. Now I've always used shell for 87 octane but not 91. What is your guys thoughts?
  12. Gas smell / gas vapor leak?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi all, I did some searching for the source of this problem with my rsx. Recently my car is smelling like raw gas. Yes it has a race header but it is not that type of smell- I can tell it is coming from under the car and near the tank. I had thought that maybe it is coming from the EVAP...

    Problems & Solutions RSX

  16. Car giving itself gas.

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    My type S idles at 1800rpm, eventually drops down to 500, starts to stall then revs itself back up to 2000. When I'm driving and shifting it barely drops RPMs which is why I think its a throttle position sensor. Would the IACV do this also? I dont get any decel pops either obviously. I plan on...
  17. Gas Tank Hard to Fill and Gurgling while fueling

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have trouble refueling my gas tank. The pressure keeps shutting off the gas pump. Also gurgling sound while fueling. Is the vapor hole clog, the tiny hole right below the gas tank filler hole? EVAP hose restriction? Anybody had this problem?
  18. Update on gas smell

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I made a post a couple months back, asking if anyone knew why my car smelled like gas. So after a couple months of being lazy I finally took a look and found that the top of the fuel pump housing had a crack, and gas would leak out of there. Anyone else had this problem?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
