  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, so I had my clutch changed about 8000 km ago and in the beginning all the gears were very stiff. Eventually they smoothed out but my first to second gear have become a pain. When going into first gear everything is fine as long as I'm almost at a complete stop, but pulling it out into...
  2. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I just put in a 2008 z3 transmission in my 03 rsx type s, my question is: Is it normal for it to feel a little notchy? Some additional info is that the transmission was fully rebuilt with carbon synchros and hardened gears, I also put in a brand new exedy stage 1 clutch along with the exedy...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    so i just recently purchased this rsx-s and at first it ran fine, after one night all gears were very hard to engage especially 1st and reverse. after some research i replaced the cmc and slave cylinder with autozone parts because this is just my beater. 1st gear is still notchy at times and...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi guys, My clutch started to feel all notchy a few days ago and today while driving to work, my car would die every time it was not in gear (in neutral.) If I'm going 40, for example, and take my car out of gear to coast, the RPMs will drop to 0 and my car will die. I had to ghetto-rig it to...
  5. Problems & Solutions EP3
    hey guys, i just picked up my ep3 not too long ago and decided to do a full tuneup and fluid changes. my gears were a little notchy sometimes while shifting normally so i went ahead and bought the honda mtf and changed the fluid in my tranny but now 2nd gear feels a lot more notchy than before...

I tried changing the fluid more frequently ,but that did no good.I gave up,but never stopped looking.I came across a video on youtube in which a guy was complaining...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My car has been very notchy through all the gears for the past year or so and is slowly getting a little worse. I had the clutch replaced and put it in a new master cylinder and both did not make the shifting any smoother. I have looked all over the forums and can't really find any solid info...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok so I have a 2004 Type-S with about 125,000 miles on it. Recently, about 2000 miles ago, the shifting started getting notchy and is rough when shifting from 1st-2nd, 2nd-3rd and 3rd to 4th. Shifting into 5th and 6th are still smooth and there is no roughness putting it into 1st or reverse...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've looked around and didn't find a clear answer to this: For those with the 2nd gear grind in the type-s, for the 02-04, did replacing the 5-6 gear set per tsb 02-016 fix 2nd gear, or is that completely unrelated? For the 05,06 type-s, has anyone replaced the 5-6 gear set and fixed 2nd gear...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX

  14. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    OK so my stock clutch blew, after 40k miles of dig racing and abuse. I was victim of the infamous 2nd gear grind prior to this, but only like 1/15 shifts, if that. Not bad...first off I am not a ricer and I know how to drive the car. I am embarrased to post a thread, but I am stumped, so before...
  15. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I had some problems with a grind when i put it into 2nd....I brought it to Acura and they took it for a ride.. 2nd and 3rd synchronizers were determined to be the problem. Under warranty they were happy to replace it ...the parts were 379 dollars each so i guess its deff a good thing i have a...
  16. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    i just did a black dash swap yesterday, and along with getting interference noises from the tweeter, shifting is a problem now.. is there something that causes this notchiness? all i did was swap my dash panel out and now is hard to get into every single gear.. im getting some extreme...
  17. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I keep reading about 2nd gear being notchy on the 02-03 RSX. When I do a search, everybody seems to know what notchy means, there is no definition of notchy. Maybe my tranny isn't notchy since I can't tell what you guys are talking about.
