  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I just had the clutch replaced on my 2006 Acura RSX Type-S 6 speed. While checking out I noticed on the paperwork that the technician stated that the car won't shift into fifth gear, that it is a synchro problem and it's not their fault. I take it for a spin and all 6 gears shift fine. When the...
