  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I was a member of this forum way back in like 08 under a different username. I still have my rsx but haven’t driven it in years. I let a family member use it ( big mistake ). They let it roll down a driveway into a green power box. It took me a while to diagnose the issues it was...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Haven’t really looked into it much, figured I’d see what you guys said first, ok so I bought an rsx 2 weeks ago and every time I hit the lock button it makes a very loud eerie anyoying sound and it’s starting to drive me crazy. Sometimes I have to hit it twice to get it to lock. It scares the...

    Okay well i recently bought a auto 05 rsx with 138k miles and whenever i accelerate from a complete stop, there's a vibration that happens during the first gear and it lasts for about 2 seconds, the harder i accelerate, the stronger the vibration. If i accelerate very very slowly, there's 0...

    Hi everyone. I have been driving this car for about a year now (188k) and had no trouble except I have always had a p1457 code which everything I read said was the evap vent shut valve was leaking. So about 3 weeks ago I removed the part cleaned it checked that it seemed to work and put it...

Car was professionally dyno'd and tuned at slowmotion motorsports in ohio. I'm now living in texas. So Ive only seen the car do this two or 3...
  7. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    I replaced my clutch not too long ago. Flywheel was resurfaced. At the beginning the clutch itself driving it felt feather weight, and it didn't seem to want to move in first gear with a bit of vibration. Fast forward to now, I hear a tiny bit of squeaky noise when idling (probably because the...
  8. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Whenever I accelerate in a higher gear, I hear this strange (almost ticking) sound. I know it's somewhat difficult to hear in the video, but it's definitely audible. The sound isn't there under decel or idle, or even when I rev the engine in neutral. Does anybody have an idea of what it could...

    I'm new here so if I'm posting in the wrong area, please direct me to the right area. I'll get straight to the point. Lately, my 2005 Si has been doing this strange thing where it will run up to roughly 4000 rpm and start doing this slipping thing. It slips then catches then slips and catches...
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have a really odd noise coming from the passenger side of my type s. It sounds like a grinding/surging noise and I have no clue what it is. I'm thinking possibly timing chain tensioner, or water pump.
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey all, Been noticing the acceleration on my RSX is rather sluggish compared to what it was awhile ago. Im applying steady pressure to the gas pedal and its like at times Im like "come on!!! what the hell is wrong with you!!" seems it takes longer to accelerate for whatever reason. Im also...

    04 Type-S with 123K miles. This just started happening, my passenger side headlight went out, so I bought new bulbs, before I had a chance to install them, it came back on, and hasn't gone out since. I ended up ordering a set of HID's from The Retrofit Source, should be delivered this week...

    I get that heavy sound (like when you turn your aftermarket audio bass all the way) and vibration during 1st gear acceleration between 1-3k RPM when I press the gas quickly. Started to happen recently. During idle, or rolling at any other rpm everything is normal. Some info about my car: - 120k...
