  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    At first I had a squealing belt, but once I fixed that I could hear a much much worse sound. It sounds exactly like your brake pad is completely worn and scraping against the rotor. If I am at a complete stop and rev the engine, there is no noise. I could be outside of the car listening while...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I'm not sure what is causing this, and it only ever happens under load, which seems like an odd prerequisite for a knocking noise. Video here. You can hear it briefly every time I press the throttle. The engine itself only has 80K on it. Guesses: Piston slap? Spun bearing? Timing chain...
  3. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Help: I can't get into the next gear when it under heavy load(>5k rpm). I have to wait till the rpm drops before I can get into gear and it is very notchy. And then if i put it back to neutral and put it back in the same gear while the clutch pedal is pressed, I can hear a loud whining(like a...
  4. Car Audio, Security, & Electronics RSX
    About a year ago my CD player stopped working completely. 2 CDs are stuck inside. I cannot eject, load, or play anything. AM/FM still works fine. Is there a fix for this or do I need to start looking into an aftermarket HU?
  5. Problems & Solutions EP3
    Hey all, I picked up some amber Cree LED turn signal bulbs for the rear, and as expected they hyperflash. I have a pair of load resistors that I ordered in anticipation of this issue, but I forgot to look around for a good spot to mount them. They should be mounted away from plastic since they...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I spent a couple hours yesterday reading through threads about noises but none of them were talking about this that I could find. I have a little squeak sound thats been happening since last summer, coming from the front end. Only happens when the load is shifted from front to back or...

  8. General RSX Discussion

  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    You have to really listen closely but I am getting a chattering noise which is very faint but noticeable under light load in all gears. It seems to be getting louder as time goes on. I am looking for input on where to begin my troubleshooting. I have also noticed that the serpentine (drive...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Alright, this is a bit TL;DR but I'll keep it brief. A few months ago, I took my 2006 S (60k miles, bone stock at this point) into Honda due to a low/weak/unpredictable idle. After just a few thousand $ later :vomit:, all my valves and timing chain were replaced and the idle is very stable at...

  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok so here is my issue. Im getting a rattle from either my engine or transmission. When in any gear I will get a loud rattleing noise. When in nuetral I can rev the engine without a rattle. The noise is louder in lower gears and much louder when under acceleration. At first the noise was only...

  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Alright people I'm really getting sick of this CEL I have for the ELD high voltage, and worrying about it frying my o2 sensors. Could someone who's dealt with this problem post a pic of where the ground is that needs to be checked, and anything else that I might need to check to get it fixed...

  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Has anyone seen this on their Type-S? My car is stock so no mods. Under hard acceleration from stop or slow speed open throttle I get a hissing noise. I was thinking valves, but there is no other slapping from the valves under normal conditions. It almost sounds like an exhaust leak by from the...
  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    if anyone can help me pin point my issue but i can shift no problem into gears even under full load under 5k rpms but when i shift above 7k rpms or to redline into the next gear, even with the clutch pedal all the way down, it grinds for a second and doesn't slide into gear until the rpms drop...
