  1. AC Blower fan doesn't come up on startup, but does at freeway speeds

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    So i was having issues with my AC fan not blowing air at all. It started a few weeks back, but it's the 5th time it happened already. Basically no air comes out of the vents, with AC On or Off, but if go fast enough that air from the outside is coming thru vents ( recirc off), it seems to "kick...
  2. So: No Solutoins To Steering Wheel Shake @ Highway Speeds?

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've seen a handful of threads from RSX owners who have the same problem: their cars shake at highway speeds. Sometimes it's just a medium frequency shake in the steering wheel (a vibration or shimmy that is visible if you let go of the wheel), sometimes it is accompanied by rotor noises from...
  3. Vibration at certain speeds - ideas?

    Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hello, One of the most annoying tendencies of my RSX is a mild vibration you feel at 45 MPH and anywhere above 65 MPH. I'm sure it's there almost all the time but it is most noticeable at those speeds. Today I installed some new inner fenders, as the old ones were shredded off (who knows how...
  4. Can't see Fuel High Speeds table?

    ECU Tuning RSX
    Hi, I'm currently trying to street tune my RSX, when I finish my pull and go to my datalogs I can't see any values in fuel adjustment values for any of my angles. Is there something wrong with my K-pro? Anything would help! Thank you
  5. Front passenger side popping at low speeds after clutch replacement.

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    2005 RSX-S: I recently had my clutch replaced and now I am sometimes getting a popping from the front driver side during turns in parking lots and such. I searched around and note that this could be a cv joint or a spring/bearing issue among a couple other things. I know the clutch job involves...
  6. Clunk when putting into gear at low speeds

    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    So I posted this on ephatch, but no response as that forum's somewhat dead. This is on an EP3. The issue is whenever I shift at low speeds (from about 5-30 mph) there is a clunk. It doesn't happen if I let the revs fall to where they would be in the next gear. The clutch has only 30k on it. I...
  7. Soft side to side "wobble" at certian speeds

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    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...

    Hi All, I have a 2Door 2003 Honda Civic Si 2.0l I am brand spanking new to the EP3.. just got mine yesterday and I LOVE THE CAR! I am working on getting the car right and one of the things I noticed is that as soon as I get up to highway speeds my steering gets incredibly stiff AND...
  9. Another vibration at high speeds problem thread

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok, so here in the last month I have recently had this problem with my car shaking at higher speeds. Here is a history of what I have already done and a explanation of what it feels like. One day I was going to work and I hit a rather large pothole. When i got to work i check my rim, and it...
  10. Car Gets Jerky at certain speeds

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    So in my 2002 Acura RSX 5 speed, lately every gear has a certain MPH that when my car reaches it, it starts to shudder and loses power until I shift or turn my car off and back on. My thoughts on it are that it is electrical, but I don't know where to start. Anybody have this problem or an idea...
  11. Popping when steering at low speeds? Duralast CV's?

    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Every time I just turn the wheel all the way to the left or right. It Pops. I'm suspecting it to be my CV joints. Either way, should I get Auto Zone's Duralast CV's?

    Anybody get a loud throaty road-noise from the rear at high speed? I'm thinking vibrating spoiler wing but that wouldn't make sense... Are these things just loud at high speeds? Tire noise? Should I use Dynamat? :dontknow:

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I spent a couple hours yesterday reading through threads about noises but none of them were talking about this that I could find. I have a little squeak sound thats been happening since last summer, coming from the front end. Only happens when the load is shifted from front to back or...
  16. High Idle / Engine Vibe from idle throughout all speeds

    Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, A couple weeks ago my 05 RSX S-Type ( about 80,000 miles) started with a heavy idle. By that I mean, high idle, engine vibe throughout all speeds. It's not kicking out any codes, but the car is just basically running like crap. I cleaned the Idle Air Intake Control Valve and it didn't...
