  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So this has happened twice over the course of a month. I’ll turn the ignition and the rpms will hover under 500RPMs and then shut off. Sometimes the oil light comes on but not consistently. If I let the car sit for about half an hour it usually starts up without a problem. Any thoughts?
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok, so I have an 06 Type S with AEM CAI, DC RH, and Kpro.. So firstly, I started hearing a little "whining" noise when releasing the clutch at lower rpms when accelerating from a stop or in lower gears. Soon after, I have been having some gear grinding and trouble shifting into gears, especially...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    my 02 RSX will sometimes rev at 4000 rpm as if it's redlined. If I let go of the throttle and slowly increase speed it revs normally and will let me go further into my rpm range. But for example If I push the throttle all the way down to quickly increase speed merging on the highway or doing a...

  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ive got a 04 type s with 205k miles on it, engine was professionally overhauled in a Honda machine shop around 175k kpro and a short ram intake was added. Car was professionally dyno'd and tuned at slowmotion motorsports in ohio. I'm now living in texas. So Ive only seen the car do this two or 3...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I had someone drive my car one weekend a month or so back, and we were driving it pretty spirited per say. Since then, the engine will vibrate like a MONSTER at 1500-2300 RPMs, but will die out and not vibrate at all after/before. I've been researching similar, but not the exact same scenarios...

  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I can't pop it out of gear when doing high rpms, say 5500+. This is most noticeable in 1st when trying to take off quick, getting on the on the freeway. I have to wait for the RPMS ( and speed i guess ) to drop before i can pop it out of gear and it put in second. I changed the tranny oil...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So when I first bought my rsx a month or 2 into it about year ago, it started jerking and jumping really hard, where it is barely drivable, but then it stopped and now its come back after I installed a new tps and plugged in a o2 sensor that had been unplugged for while the engine light does...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys my 05 type s started hesitating at high rpms usually in first gear and around 7000 rpms. It just started doing this a few days ago and I can't seem to find a legit solution to fixing this. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Edit: Resolved. It was the Water Pump. Check last post. So my car is climbing up into the 240's while idling / exiting the freeway, but it will drop to normal once i resume regular driving. Here is what i have seen: Fans turn ON if turn on the AC Still overheats if i have the AC running (...

  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I noticed my temp gauge go up to 3/4 or so after 10-15 mins of "spirited" driving, after i pulled into a parking lot. No redlining, but 6-7k rpms, with slow downs and accelerations. Temps were normal while driving, but as soon i entered the parking lot and slowed down, the gauge started to climb...
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an 06 rsx-s completely stock k20z miles are high 146k ive had the typical "clicking sound" that the dc5 normally have but over the last 2 days it has gotten worse. I now have a horrible grinding sound everytime I hit 4k rpms to 4.5k rpms. (No shit it sounds like a BOV). I have a feeling...
  16. 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?
  17. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I've got an auto base 03, and I've noticed the rpms dip a bit wildly when lifting off throttle. Pretty much what happens is I'll be driving around normally (2.5k-3k rpms) and soon as I lift off the gas pedal entirely, it'll fly down to 1,000 or less, go back up/down a bit, then finally settle...

    *****I basically copied this text from another member on here (alexmaustin) instead of typing it myself.. This is the same problem i am currently having**** I have a weird grinding(fluttering) sound coming from the front of the car, it happens at low rpms more often in the first 3 gears...
  19. Problems & Solutions RSX
    hi, I have an 03 rsx base , clutch has no slippage but feels a little weak, I'm saying that because I think that could be cause of the problem. Anyways, 1st 2nd 3rd gear in lower rpms (not so low that car normally wouldnt accelerate) when I give it gas it reacts but I can hear this hissing/very...
