  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Been like this for a long time... I'm assuming it might be from the power steering.. the hoses seem good though. The "gunk" or grease used to touch the belt and splash up on the underside of the hood, youll see in the pictures but it hasn't been that bad within the last few months. Within my...

    So I installed a universal catch can on the weekend and when I went to drive the next the day it idled a lot higher (2k) and threw a CEL, I also had to add a liter of oil because it was pretty low. The catch can has two ports, I fed one through the PCV valve on the left side of the engine, I...

  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Long story short - I have a 2006 type S that I bought from an owner who decided to continue to drive the car with an overheating motor, resulting in both the head and the block warping. To sum things up, I kept some of the bolt ons from the motor and went ahead and found a good deal on a K20A2...

    So, my oil pressure light started flickering. Also around the same time, I started hearing a noise on the right front of the engine. At first, I didn't think the two were associated, I thought it was a bad OPS and a heat shield making a racket. So I changed my oil pressure sensor and removed the...

    I did not know Amazon was making oil. Watched a couple of videos and it performed really well and is rated even higher than RedLine. Was just wondering if anyone has tried it and what your thoughts are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye-5EyrwkOQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9DWGtXpYUc

    Kinda embarrassing, but i didnt pay attention to the old Oil pressure sensor when i removed it. The new one is not bottoming out. I am not sure if it is supposed to or not. I have about a 1/4 inch gap between the base (flat part) and the block. Although its definitly got more than the 16 inch...

  12. Turbo RSX
    I am upgrading from my Greddy kit to a Garrett GT3076R (GT30). I would like to know if I need to install an oil restrictor. I already searched and all of the old posts do not give an answer except that full-race recommends a .060 one. But it looks like that size does not work. Anyone? thanks

  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So in January of this year I was hit while driving on the freeway. The guy was sideways and hit my driver side front end. Messed up the bumper but that was about it. Didn't even hit my wheels so suspension was fine. Took it to a shop and they fixed the body work. Right after that, I started...
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Today my car decided to go up in smoke. I pulled into a parking lot and found that my oil filter completely exploded off of the engine block. There is not enough thread left to hold the filter on. Eventually I will most likely have to replace the bottom end, I just have nowhere to do so until...

    I have a bolt that seems like it is the wrong bolt in the wrong location because it sticks out so far, it doesn't even look tightened up. It appears to be holding the VT Oil Control Valve. Just curious if this is normal because the diagram on "acurapartswarehouse" under "Engine/VTC Oil Control...

    I hate dumping oil on the subframe, so I order a Chinese relocation kit. Dont need an oil cooler because Im not racing. Wondering if there are any words of wisdom about a kit like this? Thanks. Paul

  19. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My car throws this code every time it rains really hard. Maybe because I have no fender liners and the part is clogged, IDK. I know the part is 37250-PNE-G01 and it’s actually fairly easy to change out. What I wanna know is I’ve noticed my car is having issues shifting. It’s an automatic but I...
