    So the other day I got code P0134 (O2 sensor stuck lean) and around the same time, I started to smell fuel from what I thought was from the car running rich. (Makes sense since the o2 sensor is not working correctly) However, the code had nothing to do with the fuel smell as it turns out, the...

    Hi guys, I just recently bought a base model RSX 02. After driving the car for a couple of weeks, I noticed a strong burning smell from the front tires/brakes. Also, the car is squeaking a lot and I can't locate where it's coming from. Please help! Thanks!

    Hey guys, i've had this problem since the day I bought my car and I initially thought it was the smell of burning oil and since then i've fixed the small oil leak that I previously had.

    So my car. Under heavy acceleration emits this smell, like fireworks being shot. Never appears in daily driving. Only when I’m heavy on the pedal. So makes me think something is definitely burning up. Oil level isn’t low and the car doesn’t over heat. Ideas? Spark plugs were changed within a year

    Hi all, I did some searching for the source of this problem with my rsx. Recently my car is smelling like raw gas. Yes it has a race header but it is not that type of smell- I can tell it is coming from under the car and near the tank. I had thought that maybe it is coming from the EVAP...

    Hi Im having a hard time figuring out whats wrong with my RSX. Its a 2005 Type S. The vehicle drives great, no engine over heat or smell from the inside. A little info on it, the clutch was replaced last year but reused the flywheel without any resurface. I made sure I clean it well with...
  9. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I made a post a couple months back, asking if anyone knew why my car smelled like gas. So after a couple months of being lazy I finally took a look and found that the top of the fuel pump housing had a crack, and gas would leak out of there. Anyone else had this problem?

    I just began having this issue a few days ago. At first, I noticed smoke coming from under the hood and a sweet smell. I took it to a mechanic and he said it was the AC and, as long as I didn't use it,. I would be fine. Imagine my surprise when on my way back from the diagnostic check, my car...
