  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    hi im new here but i bought my 2002 type s 9 months ago, it was in limp mode when i bought it. I replaced the vtec solenoid and throttle body sensor and it was fine until about 3 days go. I was driving and wanted to hear that sweet vtec sound but when i accelerated i could tell something was...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hi I have a Acura rsx 2005 and yesterday my check engine light came on and I noticed that I can’t go past 4,000 rpms because the car starts to jerk. I checked the oil and I changed the vtec solenoid but it didn’t do nothing. Any suggestions?
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My car is throwing a p0505 code and is jerking at lower rpm. Once warmed up and slowly applying throttle whether in neutral or in gear it will bounce at 2k rpm. Does anyone know what the issue could be? I took it to a mechanic and he said it is most likely the iacv failing. I’ll attach a link to...

  7. 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...

  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I’ve had this issue for about a month now and it’s driving me nuts. Every time I get off of a stop my car hesitates even if I let go of the clutch slowly, in low rpms in first and second gear my car hesitates and has a delay when letting off the gas. Today when I was driving to school my car...

    The newer car I don't much about won't stay warm. By squeezing the hoses you can tell the out put heater hose is much cooler than the input. I can turn it to cold and it gets even colder as it's a whopping high of 22f today. I'm thinking the higher rpm must push enough through. I'll do a...

    2003 Acura RSX Type-S 213K mi The short of it: Idle works fine for a minute after vehicle is started, then fluctuates rapidly between 500 and 3000 rpm. Long story: Recently replaced a bunch of stuff, alternator, starter, all AC devices, coolant. After I put it back together, car ran fine but...

    Story Time: Recently, the RSX went past 150k miles and I took it in for a tuneup and 150k scheduled maintenance. The RPM has been going up and down from 1200 to 500 RPM during idle. It is supposed to be at steady 850-950, but it kept going down below 500 and it almost shuddered to a stall after...

    Hey, I just bought a 03 rsx type s and for some reason I'm hitting rev limit at 7200 but i here it should be around 8100. I always let the engine warm up before trying to go anywhere near there I am just wondering why this might be. The car is throwing codes P1457 and P0141 which I figure might...
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hello everyone, I'm new here, nice to meet you all! I recently bought my 2005 RSX TYPE S, and I have been having some issues as of late. It would idle around 1500 for a few seconds then drop to 1k, then back up to 1500 and this would happen repeatedly regardless of wether engine was cold or...

    I have a 2006 base that gets starts shuddering at low acceleration and low rpm (between about 1800 and 1000). Has anybody encountered this problem? What was the cause? Thought changing the air filter might help. I welcome any and all insight. All the research I've done turns up other cars and...

    2004 RSX Turbo with 94k miles. Rarely driven the car in close to 3 years and after changing the gas, adding fuel stabilizer my rpms continue to bounce. When I start the car it idles at 1800rpms and there's no bounce of the rpms. Once engine is warm the bouncing starts and continues for 1k-2k...
  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've searched a lot on this all over the net, but there doesn't seem to be any solid solution. At just about 5000 RPM and above, at WOT, I hear this high pitch whine or whistle. Sounds like some sort of exhaust or intake leak. Any ideas? It seems to be a common issue with the RSX. I bought the...

    Kind of sounds like its coming from the CAI but its hard to tell. i checked both heat shields (above the cat and covering the header) which seems to be ok.. Here is the video of the noise, its kind of hard to hear but the sound is at about 9 seconds https://youtu.be/VzXottR0_-E
