  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Ok so this is driving me crazy and I need everyone’s help. My setup is Rbc manifold and s90 throttle body When my car is idling when I try and give it gas it’s difficult and takes more effort than the stock throttle body making it difficult to drive. I’ve ruled out the cable and pedal because...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Throughout the years I've seen many threads without documented solutions on how to fix a poor idle. I have had surging idle issues as well as the dreaded idle dip/stall. I understand the frustrations of having such an issue but no definitive answers or guide to follow. When you attempt to fix...
  3. Wheels & Tires
    Has anyone else had an issue with this? It isn't my coilovers. I had the same issue with stock suspension. It isn't the wheels. I've had more than one set on. The passenger side sticks out almost an inch more. My alignment is good and the car has never been wrecked. Front and back on the...
  4. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hi I have an issue with the right e-brake. The left side is working good. When I pull the e-brake up (engage it) , the little circled tab in the picture below moves down little bit. However when I put the e-brake handle down (disengage it), it hardly moves, if at all. I sprayed WD 40 around...

    I have a 2003 type s. I've had it for 11 years now; the first 7 years, not a single issue. After year 7, the clutch stuck to the floor. Garage replaced the slave cylinder. A few months later, clutch stuck again, garage replaced the entire clutch kit. Ever since the initial slave cylinder...

    I have a 2001 RSX-S manual with about 120000 miles on it. This morning, out of the blue by clutch started sticking a bit. It doesn't stay stuck, but eventually releases itself to full disengaged position after 2 seconds. Additionally, the transmission grinds when entering reverse and won't...

  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So about a month ago I started noticing my clutch pedal sticking a little bit when it was cold out in the morning and didn't really think much of it. But lately the pedal has been sticking after every time I push it down and my gears are very difficult to shift into and grind on occasion even...
  9. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hey guys. I just installed the buddy club spec II on my type-s today. The exhaust is extremely loud and I wanted to put the silencer in it. Problem is when I put the silencer in, it starts getting really tough to push it in. I'm afraid it will get stuck in there. Is it okay to lubricate the...
  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I just washed my car and cleaned the wheels really good (stock 05'-06' Type-S) but after a couple days of driving my drivers side rear wheel is coated in black brake dust while the other wheels still look really clean. It's a 03' Type-S with 136,000 miles. How can I fix this or do I just have...
  11. Problems & Solutions EP3
    I'm having a problem with my gas pedal when the gas pedal is completely released, no pressure on it/idle. When I go to apply pressure to the gas pedal, about 50% of the time, it works and modulates just like any normal gas pedal should. The other 50% of the time, I get a completely stuck pedal...
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Got around to changing my brake pads today at all 4 corners. Did everything by the manual using OEM pads. Took it for a test drive afterwards and felt a little bit of drag coming from the brakes. I put it back up in the air and spun all wheels and noticed that passenger front wheel is...

  14. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hi, I'm having an issue with my 03 type-s. I recently (2 months ago) had a stage 2 clutch installed on my car and for about a month now I've been having problems with it. Whenever I try to shift into 1st, 3rd, or 5th the gear is really tough to shift into and then it is crazy difficult to shift...

  16. General RSX Discussion
    What do you guys thing about that? Like do you think its better mixing parts or trying to stick to one name? Ex I wanna do skunk2 manifold header exhaust and maybe cams. Do parts manufactured by one company tend to work better with each other? Instead of like rbc intake dcrh hks hi power...

  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've had this problem since I had the car where rpm's will not drop when I go into neutral while moving. It drops to idle after stopping. Instead of cruising to a red light in neutral, I just leave it in gear until it drops to around 500 rpm and then I'll pull it into neutral and the rpm's will...
