  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, Recently took my 2006 DC5 running Wilwood Dynalite BBK to Streets of Willow. After one session, the brake pedal got incredibly soft. I drove the 2nd session much more cautiously. It felt as if I could get similar braking power but it took much more pedal travel before brakes began to...

    All, Here is a weird one that just popped up. Between about 45 and 55 mph my 2002 Type S has a soft side to side "wobble". The wobble is stronger if I am accelerating harder, and barely there with the clutch in. It is not a shaking, or hard vibrating and I don't hear anything else associated...

    So my issue started 2 days ago. Car: 2004 Acura RSX Type-S ABP [160k miles on speedometer] 1st day: noticed that it was getting a little hard to shift gears while driving. There wasn't any grinding noise, it just felt a little sticky to shift from one gear to the next. 2nd day: clutch pedal...

    recently put in exedy clutch and pressure plate. now it was installed, but the pressure of the clutch is soft. It feels soft, i know a new clutch is supposed to feel stern when its new. now if the mechanic did install new clutch what would be the reason for this issue.

    Hey guys, I apologize for posting yet another thread about Motor Mounts because I have read probably at least 80% of the ones out there already and I have a clearer idea of what I want but I just wanted a few more opinions on cheaper motor mounts. All 4 of my motor mounts are busted at 105K...

    Im having issues with my function form type 2. my setup is all the way down now. ride quality is so bouncy at the moment. my question is, could this be due to my shocks being blown or is this an issue with the spring rates for the type 2. ive heard some members having problems with the spring...

    Before I go into it, I would like to state that this has always occurred in the 2 years I've owned the car, and I never realized it may be a problem until recently. I have an 04 Type S with 130k, that I purchased in upstate NY in December of 09. When I purchased the car I was aware that the...

    2002 Type-S, maybe 85k. For the past 6-8 months or so, the clutch has worked just fine (no slippage, no problems shifting) but has pretty low resistance as a DD. Prior to that, it was parked for about 3 months while I was out of the country, and before that it was a DD. I do not remember the...

    Hi folks, My clutch pedal stayed close to the floor the other day and since then some times it feels soft on the way up (soft return force), mostly first,second push after the car stayed parked for a while. I searched for a few hours many topics, but most of the problems are "pedal stays on the...

    Just recently put 255/40/17 Hankook v12s on my 17x9 rims and I've noticed that they have really soft sidewalls. I don't like the feeling of them flexing while I'm turning. Tire pressure is 36psi all around. I was wondering if I increase the tire pressure it would help stiffen them up a bit.
