    Problems & Solutions RSX
    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...
