    Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I did a top speed run and hit 135. Hurray for me, except that after I hit the top speed run, I went to neutral and the car died. Started it back up and it was flashing the CEL and was misfiring. I plan to take it to Autozone tomorrow to see what happened. Could it be possible that I broke...

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    A couple days ago I got the code P0217 and looked into it. It seemed to be an overheating problem, but the car was not actually overheating much unless I was stopped. AC also only worked when I was moving so I narrowed it down to the fans. Here's the thing: both fans do not run by themselves...
