    Hello i recently bought a 2002 rsx type s with 150k miles. the car runs great but it has the 3rd gear grind and pop out. it doesn't happen all the time, maybe once a day. but if i could fix it or even prevent it from happing too often that would be great. i read about people fixing that problem...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So a few weeks back my CMC/Slave went and I lost the clutch. I drove it 10 miles home after. Now, I was a bit too desperate and went the "drive without a clutch" route as it was 10 miles with 9.5 being highway. I slowly encouraging it into gear, then managed to get up to speed and into 6th...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So, let’s say on the rare occasion that I go up to redline, I’ve noticed if I shift moderately slow, it will grind sometimes. But if I quick shift, it doesn’t. Why is this? Just a little confused. Is it bad to shift slow and light af high Rpms? Or is it my syncros? Thanks!
  4. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Hello, fellow rsx owners, this is my first post on this forum:) Im wondering weather there is 2nd/3rd gear grinds on the the 5-speed base model rsx 2005-2006 .Or is it only on the 6-speed type-s model? Thanks for the replys:fistbump:
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, I just picked up my first RSX type S a few weeks ago and was wondering if some of you have experienced this issue with a easy fix. It's a 2003 with 150k on the clock. Very well maintained. The car has an aftermarket clutch but seems solid in all other gears but, a lot of the time it...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Changing the gear oil to MT90 didn't fix my second gear grind (MT90 usually does an amazing job of masking synchto grind), so now I'm wondering what could be causing it. I'm under the impression that the plastic shifter causes play that makes second gear engagement difficult (and sometimes...
  7. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Let me start off by saying I have a exedy stage 1 clutch with the stock flywheel.. I put it on at 107k and my car currently has 113k. I drove a little hard one day and I noticed a sound coming from the transmission.. when I push the clutch in the sound would disappear and right when I release...

    So for the past month or so my 05 rsx s has been making a grinding noise, but the weird thing is that it only happens at 5k rpm in every gear. Any ideas? :noes:
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Before I bought my RSX Type S 05, I didn't know how to drive a stick. I had someone test drive it for me and they said the gear felt great. (they were wrong :( )When I started to get a hang of stick shift I started to notice the pop out and grinds for the 3rd gear only. Now 3rd grinds every time...
  10. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I have an 02 Type-s and at times my 3rd gear grinds at high rpm. It also recently started grinding when I downshift from 6th to 3rd or from 5th to 3rd. But other than that it goes in smoothly when cruising. Would switching to different tranny fluid help fix the 3rd gear grind like say Royal...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hello.. recently these past 3 days I have gotten a slight grind in 2nd gear 3 times.. I know it's a common problem for rsx for the synchro to go out question is how do I know if the synchro are bad? I keep thinking that it's me not putting in the clutch all the way in ..but I wanna know how...
  12. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Had my transmission fluid leak out of a bad axle seal last I decided to rip the transmission open and replace all of the bad bearings that were whirring and do a visual inspect on all of the gears and synchros...ended up replacing nearly every bearing and swapped 6th over to the TSX...
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I just bought an 2002 Type S and it grinds going into 5th and 6th gear. It doesn't happen if you go in at low rpm's, double clutch or do it relatively slowly. I thought this was weird because it usually occurs in 2-3 for most transmissions. What do you guys think could be the problem and what...
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an 03 Type-S with about 95k miles, KPro, I/H/E (Possibly stage 3/4 clutch and lightweight flywheel, previous owner can't remember for sure) and it makes a god awful noise when pulling out or reversing. Either way it does it, not all the time but nearly all the time on a slight incline...
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey My 05 RSX-S recently started getting "caught" whenever I shift into 4th around 3500rpm or so. But when I double clutch it at around 2k it's fine. It would make a split second grind noise and then everything would be fine. Anyone know what that is all about? Thanks,
  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Just happened to me this morning. Yesterday and forever before this, never had an issue with 2nd gear. Today it started to feel difficult to put it into gear, even when the car is off and i'm not touching the clutch. When it does go in, it goes in and drives fine. It feels like something is...
