  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I mechanically over-revved my rsx type s 04 k20a2 going to 3rd instead of 5th from 4th and i saw the rpm gauge go to something more than 9k. Now I can hear very high frequency rattling sound only at around 2300 rpm. Please help me figure out what this sound could be, how to go about repairing...

  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I know over-rev causes engine problems, but how does a misshift leads to problems like misfire, bent valve or low compression.. I don't get it or understand the logic to it. Can someone explain this? And if this is the case, would alot of RSX has misfire problem due to 2nd or 3rd gear design...

    so i was cruising in 6th gear going 60-70 MPH on the freeway and was gonna pass a car, tried to go to 4th but it went to second, clutch out, gas WOT and the car sounded like it hit the rev limiter twice, and it bucked with the limiter, then i clutched in :o:mad::eek::noes: man my stomach dropped...

    Not sure if this is the right section. This car was towed in. S2000. No start. Teared the motor apart and this is what we found. Motor is completely done. So that answered the rebuild question. Cheers.

    Last night i was speeding on the freeway and decided to give myself a little boost before getting off at my exit. I didn't realize i was going 100, so i popped it into 3rd. I caught the clutch about half way through and the car is running fine since then, but . . . What should i get checked...
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I was driving my car on the freeway and was shifting from 3rd to 4th and accidentally shifted it into 2nd (first time i have ever done that) and it over revved pretty bad. I didnt notice how far the rpms actually went past the red line but after it had happened my car did not feel the same and...

  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I never really beat on my car, at least from 1st gear on so I dunno if this is normal, but it wouldn't have been a couple of weeks ago. Today dad and I go for a drive and as I leave a parking lot I rip 1st gear and shift into 2nd at redline. No chirp of the tires. I was thinking about it...
  17. All Motor RSX
    When I first got my car and was driving around I misshifted. I dont remember from what gear to what but I do remember it being pretty bad. This was about 2 years ago. I remember after it happening the car seemed fine and at that point I was uninformed about the damage that could have been...

  19. All Motor RSX
    Well I took it to acura, and like some people predicted it was an unwarrantied repair :crying: , then they start quoting me 10K, basically a new engine, so I got my car out of there as fast as I could, and started asking around for shops. Big thanks to BiturboS4(if we still had rep points I'd...
