  1. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I'm very sad! I ordered a 3" Kteller exhaust, I waited two weeks for it. All three pieces are dented but I can live with the other two. The one piece is all crush bent and its deep. This is poor quality work. The others are mandrel bent. How can they ship something this bad out? This should have...
  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Changing the gear oil to MT90 didn't fix my second gear grind (MT90 usually does an amazing job of masking synchto grind), so now I'm wondering what could be causing it. I'm under the impression that the plastic shifter causes play that makes second gear engagement difficult (and sometimes...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I discovered water in my trunk and went to replace the tail light gaskets on my 04 Type-S and started with what I expected to be the toughest part, the screws underneath the lights. I used a long screwdriver and saw that all of the screws had rusted heads. I decided that taking the bumper off...
  4. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Yes I know. Lets get straight to business. I changed the mtf with honda genuine and installed innovative motor mounts. Shifts smoother but the second gear problem is still there. Now I'm going to try to be as specific as I can be. Problem is gear pops out. Mostly during turns and when I let go...
  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    This has been an issue with my car for quite some time. I will start by saying that the ECU was sent to hondata and they SAY it has no issues. My list of problems is: The keyfob/keyless entry does not work....remote batteries are new. I also have an issue with my driverside window controller...
  6. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I have had a CEL on since I bought the car. A few codes are stored; one main one that I think is causing my problem. p0325 for a knock sensor. The car seems to bog down almost immediately after 4000 rpm, a very noticeable lack of power, and then sometimes it will become normal again ~7500 rpm. I...
  7. General Discussion EP3
    Might as well be huh? Now that I have your attention...how many of you have tranny crunch/grinds? ie. 1st to 2nd or the the infamous 3rd gear grind/pop out. It seems to me along with the weak motor mounts in the EP3 (even the JDM review video of the EP3 the guy says EP3's have weak motor mounts...
  8. General Discussion EP3
    Been going to Kersy Auto (local shop that fixes Japanese cars) for over 5 years now without a hitch. The owner does most of the work himself along with his assistant/mechanic. Yesterday I took the car in for new brake pads/rotors. As you can tell from the photo my car is lowered. When they put...
  9. Canada West
    Sooooo I was driving down my street and my car slid out on the snow and smashed a snow bank, this had cracked my front bumper and now it needs to be replaced. The damage isnt that bad, but any damage to the bumper pretty much means a replacement bumper. Just wondering what my best bet would be...
  10. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    I got my Ingen SRI today for my 2006 'S' and I can't say I'm terribly impressed with the install. A couple minor questions I was wondering if others had run into: 1) The provided rubber grommet seems to have an inside diameter that is too big for the stock temperature sensor, I.E. it probably...
  11. Problems & Solutions RSX
    damnnit!!! i just replaced my drivers side door lock actuator.. It fixed it.. but my passenger door doesnt lock/unlock electronically it is only through the key. could it be that both of the actuators were dead?
  12. Problems & Solutions RSX
    Hey guys, searched all over and I couldn't find a solution. First my base problem. I have an 05 type-s w/ GReddy bolt on turbo, intercooler, timer, and eManage. After a few weeks of boosting 13-15 roundabout, I dogged it one day and really pissed her off. She went into limp mode and ever...
  13. Problems & Solutions RSX
    My AC has packed up :rolleyes: 1. The AC light still comes on and the system is gassed. 2. When you turn it on a load appears to be on the engine as the revs drop but you cannot heat the clutch come it. Any idea? Thanks.:thumbsup:
  14. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So, just noticed this today, 45k miles, about 3.5 years old. Notice the middle bar in the cd number on the stereo lcd display, right under disc. Anyone ever have this problem? Is this just the crap quality Acura/Honda puts out these days? Or is it normal?
  15. Problems & Solutions RSX
    The stock Bose 6 disc changer in my 02' RSX type S refuses to play CDs anymore, and to be honest, I wasn't that impressed with it to begin with. I've been digging all over the place to find a suitable replacement for it, but it looks like replacing it and all the Bose proprietary BS that comes...
  16. Suspension & Brakes EP3
    ok... just like the title says... i got some suspension problems... went out pretty late last night to go pick up drunk wifey at her mom's house about an hr away in the country... i took some back roads to get there, that i've taken before... so it's not like i don't know the area... anyways...
  17. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So the first mistake I made with my type s was letting best buy install my nav/dvd system, but thats beside the point, whats done is done...What I need to know now is whether anyone else has had their battery mysteriously lose a full, fresh charge after sitting for 48 hours. The battery is good...
  18. General RSX Discussion
    so I wanted to share with you all what I had to go through with last week. picture this, you just had a great trip to Orlando, fairly decent time at Universal Studios and Kennedy Space Center. Get home, take the dogs outside to do their business, and you look over to your car, and it looks...

  20. DC Metro
    These police are ridiculous and give a bad name to all if not most cops in the general vicinity. I parked outside Ikes which is the all night eatery, in a handicapped spot (not the smartest move, I know). Only there to drop off some friends, did a little talking but wasn't there any longer...
