    How to bypass the heat from using the power from the car
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Issue. I have an 02 with 190k miles on it. The heater works, but only when the dial is turned all the way right, as in full heat. If I go one click off it just turns to regular cold air? Also when my A/C is on, it will work, then go to heat, then work, then go to heat. Are these independent or...

    This problem has been going on for a while now. I've just been so busy that I haven't had time to post on here. So here's the thing. When I'm driving my 02 Type s w/ 175k miles around, and the RPMs are raised my heat is hot as can be, but when I come to a stop the heat turns cold. Also, when...

    For the past week my car has been overheating at a stand still and when traveling below 40mph. It fluxuates from middle to high temps between 40-55mph.

  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    :dontknow: I've tried searching Clubrsx and Hondata's website for a solution but I can't seem to find one. I recently noticed that my car is overheating (just driving a few blocks it gets to 190 f+) and has also been going into "limp mode." The A/c fan will turn on when the A/c system is running...

    Just the other day my car started over heating on the open road. Thankfully my buddy's house was close by. Long story short I thought I was just low on coolant, so I went and bought the coolant. Then i realized that the radiator hose wasn't connected to the radiator. This was due to the fact...

    Just put a k24a2 into my brother in laws car and it seems as if the thermostat isn't opening. I used the k20 thermo on the k24 water pump. Fans kick on at 190 but the temp just keeps climbing. Any ideas? The thermostat came off the k20 that we took out and it worked just fine before. Is there...

    Ok so my heater is not working properly, I've taken to a mechanic who works at honda and he couldn't figure out what's wrong. Is there a reliable shop who can diagnose/fix the problem? The dealer is my last resort.
