  1. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I started hearing this sort of whistle sound today on acceleration. I don’t think it’s coming from the belt or i could be wrong. Has anyone experienced this in past? I have also uploaded a video. https://youtu.be/NnDHt14CVmU
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys I have had 06 type s for a few months now and pretty much a week or two after I got it I have this whistle sound coming from under the hood while accelerating. It’s really only very noticeable in 3rd gear low rpms. But oh man the whistle is LOUD in and out of the car. Cars stock...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've searched a lot on this all over the net, but there doesn't seem to be any solid solution. At just about 5000 RPM and above, at WOT, I hear this high pitch whine or whistle. Sounds like some sort of exhaust or intake leak. Any ideas? It seems to be a common issue with the RSX. I bought the...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have a 2005 RSX Type-S, completely stock. I noticed that when I accelerate and hit Vtec there is this whistling noise. It definately sounds like it is coming from the engine bay. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound when Vtec kicks in around 6000 rpm...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys I need some help. I've checked the forums and haven't been able to find any answers to this. When I first start my car there's a high pitched whistling noise. It happens through all RPM's and does eventually stop. When the rpm's go up it gets louder and the pitch gets higher. It can...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum as well as the RSX scene. Last week I bought a 2006 RSX Type-S with 180,000 kms. Everything on the car runs smoothly and is pretty mint, but one thing is bothering me. Whenever I rev up past roughly 6100 rpms, I hear a whistle noise while accelerating. I just...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I've been battling this for awhile. When accelerating full throttle I get a whistle noise in the higher rpm's (above 6000). When sitting in neutral I'll rev it to the limiter, let it fall 1,500-2000rpm and jump on it again to the limiter, and it'll whistle. The same will happen when the clutch...
  8. Turbo RSX
    Usually I diagnose and fix whatever issues I have, but I cannot figure this one out. It started a while ago but this isn't a daily driver so I haven't made it a priority. When it first started, it didn't always do it, then shortly after it did. Around the same time I started getting a boost cut...

  10. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Long story short, I let my friend borrow my RBC for a race, i'm thinking the high pitch whistle i'm hearing is maybe an intake mani leak? A new intake gasket was not put back and i was told that every time you replace/remove a gasket you need to buy a new one to replace it because it will never...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Alright when i get around 2500-3000 rpms my car makes almost a whistle sounds similar to a turbo spooling. Its not very loud but it is noticable. It does it in nuetral, or any gear. Its a 03 type s, bone stock. I am running 91 octane with "up to 10% ethanol." There isnt any gas station...

    Metal on Metal whistle sound happening at 2800 rpm (air rushing/leak) Think its coming from my DCRH flex pipe (mechanic said no now) Shows no signs of damage or crack/leak Mechanic suggested removing serp belt to see if noise persists. if it does he mentioned TCT/ Bearing of some kind. if...
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Just a few days ago I notice while in 2nd gear right around 2500 rpm there's this high pitch whistling noise. I wanna say it's coming from passenger side. Has anyone ran into this problem before?
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So today I turned on the AC for my heated long drive home from work - and of course, it doesn't work! It still blows fine, but it just blows hot air all the time.... if it's idle or accelerating... just hot air. Further, it also makes a whistling noise while the AC is on, but it goes away when...
  16. Problems & Solutions RSX
    i start it up, and it revs at the normal rpm, with nothing weird, then after maybe 30 seconds its reving from 1k- 2k rpms constantly and doesnt stop. now it just started making a wierd whistle noise when it was "letting off the throttle", which currently turned into a constant high pitched...
  17. General RSX Discussion
    i know there have been several threads on this, but none have really answered my question. When i drive my 05 Type-s with an injen CAI depending on the throttle position it whistles really loud. under full throttle it doesnt do it, and when i barely press the throttle it doesnt do it. but pretty...
  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey, I bought an RSX recently and noticed that when I'm going about 110km/70miles an hour or more I hear a whistle from the passenger door. I believe its air getting in. While its not that loud its enough for me to get upset because its my car. I believe its the window because when I roll down...
