  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So got the P1259 vtec code, started really lagging in 2nd and into 3rd if I pushed it at all, so I swapped out the oil pressure switch, the light remained, replaced the entire solenoid and changed the oil/filter. Cleared the code and kept driving, now the lag in 2nd gear is back and so is the...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Our 5th gear on our 06 RSX k20 jdm swapped engine and auto trans, is struggling. Whenever it shifts into 5th while your on the throttle it takes a while to “get in gear” If your off the throttle it’s faster. We think it may be solenoid related, so which one 5th gear solenoid?

But car would not pass 4000 rpms.i took it to a shop, had it scanned and they told me my solenoid was going bad so I just replace the whole thing not willing to risk it just by changing the filter, and for a...

    Receiving the p2647 error, replaced the whole vtc assembly and earased the code. Drove down the road to test and it came back on. The car won’t go above 4K rpm and as long as it stays below 4K after earasing code the cel stays off. So I checked already and every one said to do the vtc solenoid...

(Mobile 1...

  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My car has had this code on since I got it June last year. It hasn't spread to anything else or affected much, so I've left it alone. Recently I've been trying to take care of everything so I tried troubleshooting instead of buying parts blindly. When I went through the steps, I seemingly found...

    I'm on the second mechanic for this issue, looking for some help. My 02 RSX S will start, idle for a bit then turn shut down. The first mechanic replaced the gas pump, but the problem still persisted. He tried to solve it, but then gave and said it was not a mechanical problem, but rather an...

    I had a little oil leak from my vtec solenoid. I replaced the vtec gasket before, but that didn't fix it. I then replaced the whole solenoid and now the leak is gone. Plus the car accelerates so much smoother. Soo worth it. Just wanted to share that with other members. The car drives way better...
