    Hi all, recently bought an '02 Type-S, 318,000km (for $300 :) ). I'm investing $2000 in it for a full restoration (minus the engine). The only serious problem now is misfires, which I am assuming is due to the timing chain skipping some teeth over the lifetime of the car. What is the best way to...

  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Alright, first off pardon my inexperience. I've started working on my car within the last year. I have a 2005 RSX base model manual with 185,000 miles that I purchased from my dad. When I bought it, it ran pretty well the only issue it seemed to have was that occasionally it would shut off...

    Hi, I'm hoping for some insight/help on next steps. I'm getting a misfire on cylinder 3 when the car is held at a steady 4000-5000 rpms in second gear.
