  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have 2003 Acura RSX Base Automatic (USA) model. My car was throwing OBD code P0420 which indicated inefficiency with Catalytic Converter. I decided to change it along with both O2 sensors. I purchased following upstream sensor for my car which is: Denso Air-Fuel Ratio Sensor 4 Wire, Direct...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    First off the car has K-pro, Skunk2 alpha headers, and a k&n typhoon SRI. If that matters. I bought it like this. I tried cleaning the throttle body and the 02 sensor looked decent. It only has 1 primary hooked up, no cat, and the evap system doesn't seem to be hooked up either. It smells like...

  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I recently installed a DC sports catback and around the same time the car started throwing the CEL code P1457, indicating a possible leak. I took it to the shop and they quoted $600 for a new EVAP canister, but they said it could be anything within the EVAP system. Anyone have any...

  8. The DIY Garage RSX
    Right here. I drive a 2002 Type-S, by the way. And I've looked through some of the guides, and most seem to indicate how easy changing this part out is, but I'm still sort of nervous. If I do somehow screw it up, am I looking at a call to AAA to get it to a mechanic? I'd really like to...
