  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    05 rsx type s Hello & happy New Years ! I have a minuscule issue that is very annoying and hopefully someone has experienced the same and has a solution. So around in the lower rpms after I shift I experience a slight hesitation of some sort for a split second. This is only when driving...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So, let’s say on the rare occasion that I go up to redline, I’ve noticed if I shift moderately slow, it will grind sometimes. But if I quick shift, it doesn’t. Why is this? Just a little confused. Is it bad to shift slow and light af high Rpms? Or is it my syncros? Thanks!

    Figure I would post this here because this issue plagued me for almost 2 years before I figured out the cause. I wasn't able to shift into 3rd or 5th gear. 1st was iffy. 2nd, 4th, 6th, and R worked just fine. Mechanics told me it was the clutch, or the master cylinder/slave cylinder, the...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So I got a new clutch installed about a month ago n everything was working great. Now when I try to downshift from 3rd year to 2nd it's pretty bad. Like it doesn't go smooth you have to push it hard a little in order for it to come out of third. The same thing happens in 5th year. Everything...
  6. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hi everybody! I just bought a used 2005 Rsx Type-S! I was wondering what you guys are shifting at (mph). My gears seem kind of short. With other cars I didnt need to be in 3rd gear to go 25mph. Im usually in 5th gear aroun 40mph and 6th around 45mph. My base (automatic) shifted differently so I...

  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum so if I'm doing something wrong please let me know. The problem I'm having with my 02 rsx is that the shifter will not move to either First or Second gear. When I try to move the shifter to the left from the neutral position it feels as though something is...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I am having a lot of problem shifting into 1st 3rd 5th. It is a little easier to shift when the car is off, but when it running it pretty tough. I've check and change the fluid and that did not fix the problem. I check the shift cable and shifter and there is nothing that look out of the...
  12. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    It happened to my car when doing road course, and when I tried to downshift from 3rd to 2nd around 6k rpm, it wouldn't go into 2nd. And then when I retry put it back into 3rd and 4th, it doesn't engage also. it felt like it was stuck in 3rd, but the engine is revving freely. It only happens...
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have a 2002 RSX Type-S and my car has been giving me some issues lately in regards to shifting. When I first start my car, I cannot put it in first or reverse without pumping the clutch at least 20 times and even then, it is still difficult and sometimes grinds when engaging. The clutch lines...

  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I found 3 or 4 threads of people asking about this with no solution. I just swapped my clutch to a cc stg2. I have 466 miles on it so far. Pulled a data log on it today and haven't beaten on it at all until about 415 miles into the break in(nothing too hard either). It started after the log...

    The car drives perfectly normal at lower RPM's/normal driving conditions. When taking my car into higher RPM's it feels as if there's a wall. It will eventually get into gear when the RPM's drop a little. I also noticed when I downshifted today from 5th to 4th at high RPM's I also feel a little...

  19. Problems & Solutions RSX
    The rpms jump by about 200 every shift. There is play between the wheel loads and the body which causes a deley between when forces occur and when they are felt. In other words there is a period after you make inputs while driving during which nothing happens, then suddenly a jerk is felt as the...
  20. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So about a month ago I started noticing my clutch pedal sticking a little bit when it was cold out in the morning and didn't really think much of it. But lately the pedal has been sticking after every time I push it down and my gears are very difficult to shift into and grind on occasion even...
