    I have a 2002 Acura RSX base model. I started my car after i got out of school today and notice a whistling sound from the engine base and probably the air intake, the car acceleration isn’t aggressive like it was earlier in the morning and after i did an eye check it was fine, but whenever i...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I’ve noticed that when I’m cruising or driving hard, I hear a rattle at about 2k to 3k rpm. I’ve removed the axle heat shield and the catalytic converter heat shield but the noise keeps on going. I’m not sure what it could be at this point, I checked the header/downpipe heatshield but that...

    I was driving home from work going about 55mph when I hit a pothole which I came later to inspect that was about an inch deep and as soon as I hit it I started hearing this rattling noise whenever I have more than 50% pressure on the gas pedal and it's been driving me crazy. I have taken off the...

    I was driving home from work about a month ago and I was taking a turn and I hit a pretty small pothole so I didn't take notice of anything since I was playing music. The next day I was driving it pretty hard :vtec: and I noticed that if I went near 3k rpm with the throttle pressed down more...

    I have a 2002 RSX Base 5-speed, engine has about 108K miles. I started noticing a rattle noise coming from the tensioner and saw how much it moved during idle. Didn't check the arrow indicators but I'm pretty sure either the belt and/or the tensioner is going bad. So instead of guessing and...

    Rattle when A/C is on, goes away when turned off, but A/C still blows cold. Not affected by turning on heat. Googling / searching forum suggests it may be A/C pulley bearing. At that point, is it worth it to just replace the compressor as well? 103k miles. Thread that helped...

    So when I got my RSX it did not have a rattle or anything when I drove it for a week it started some rattle sound that sounds like it's coming from my exhaust manifold area or something under me while I'm driving, kind of close to the engine but definitely under me, I can tell the sounds coming...

    Spent a good part of yesterday tearing apart my hatch looking for a rattle. I think I've narrowed it down to the glass rubbing the frame, you can see in the video if I apply pressure between the glass and the frame the rattle stops. The rattle is so annoying I'm thinking about taking the car...
