  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have an 03 type s that was starting to burn oil so I switched from 5-30 full synthetic to synthetic-blen. I get all of my oil from the dealership. I was driving today and noticed what i think might be a slight knock. I was wondering if anyone knows if the oil could be causing the noise.

  8. General RSX Discussion
    I usually use Mobile 1 5w-30 oil with a Bosch oil filter. I've droven 400+ miles with this setup but now I'm going 600+ miles deep into Mexico with Sonoran Desert. I'm thinking about switching the oil to Amsoil (which I used when I first bought the car) and using a Honda Hamp oil filter. Just...

    I've done a little bit of searching, and read some stuff. So now I have a better idea on what HIDs and projectors are, because I had no idea. Just couldn't find the answers I was looking for, so here it goes. I bought my 04 Type-S 3-4 weeks ago, with Projector headlights + HIDs. I just restored...

  17. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    I am thinking of buying the dc5r front/rear shocks & strut combo for my 02 type S. Will it swap in no problem? Or are there any modifications that need to be done. I would imagine there to not be any problems of that kind. However I want to be sure before I make the non refundable purchase online.

  20. The DIY Garage RSX
    Do you think switching brands of synthetic oil has any effect on your engine? I do know that switching from synthetic to regular is hard on an engine so that wont be happening.
