Hey everybody, I'm pretty new to this car stuff so please bear with me.

I got my RSX from my sister who didn't really take the best care of it. So, basically the Transmission was totally gone by the time I got it. So, me and my dad decided to just convert it to a 5 speed manual transmission.

It's been driving pretty good for the past few months but there are still a few problems.

1. The speed sensor we had didn't work for this, so I basically can't tell how fast I'm going, and the mileage isn't going up.
2. Whenever I'm in last gear (or any gear for the matter) and try to go past 5000 rpm, the car wont rev anymore and I'm just stuck decelerating until it finally kicks in again.

Any help for what I can do will be appreciated, Thank you.

Are you still using the auto ecu? or did you swap it?. Is rare for the vs sensor to go out unless you damaged it on the process. Check if it has voltage, ground and signal (5v) do not apply power to any signal wire
