  4. Idle problem after putting in park

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    2002 k20a3 base auto. So I recently noticed that after I installed my SRI that after I drive around and then put my car in park, the rpms go down to about 400 or so like it wants to die then goes back to normal idle. Other than that it runs great, could my SRI be causing the problem?? What do...

  6. putting new piston rings on, Pull motor, or pull of head and oil pan

    Engine Building & Design
    As the title says, i haven't made mind up about which would be easiest to do. my buddies recommend to just pull the engine and replace it that way, but with research it makes it seem like pulling the engine from the top is a hassle and I only have a cherry picker and i cant really just drop it...

  8. Clunk when putting into gear at low speeds

    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So I posted this on ephatch, but no response as that forum's somewhat dead. This is on an EP3. The issue is whenever I shift at low speeds (from about 5-30 mph) there is a clunk. It doesn't happen if I let the revs fall to where they would be in the next gear. The clutch has only 30k on it. I...

  12. Will putting Premium gas in my Base 02 RSX make a difference?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    The past owner said he put Premium gas in it when it says it's a Unleaded gas car. Do I continue putting Premium gas or am I just wasting money? 2002 Acura RSX 5 Speed

    ECU Tuning RSX

  14. Rpms and redlining with a swapped engine.

    Engine Building & Design
    Hey guys. I have an 03 rsx S but the engine is swapped from a k20a2 with a k24a2 from a tsx. They're both vtec and they both seem to kick in at around 6000 rpms. However my gauge says I redline at 8000, since the engine is swapped, would I still redline at 8000?

    ECU Tuning EP3
    My 03 ep3 k20a3 I/H/E jut had K-Pro installed and dyno tuned and it runs great. Except for the fact that after I fuel up I start the car and it kicks over but won't hold idle and stalls out.

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have had my 03 RSX (not a Type S) for several years with no problems. It was recently involved in a small accident and I just completed the repairs. Oddly, I had what appeared to be battery issues afterwards, but it turned out to be a starter problem. I replaced the starter and it spins...
