Every time my RPM goes from 2000 - 3000 RPM, there's this weird rattling noise coming from the engine. does anyone have this same problem?

that might be it but it kind of sounds like a loose metal grinding sound. i really don't know how to explain it.

Yea DOHCtor is correct. I had the same noise. It was like a light mettalic rattling at 2-3k. Halfshaft cover removed=problem was solved!

if you look underneath the car you will see somewhat in the middle, a black metal shield covering the "axle" but technically we call it a halfshaft because its a fwd car, but its in the middle underneath the exhaust manifold.

My son has an Acura RSX typw "S" and to make a long story short.........he also heard some strange noises at around 3000 RPM and it turned out to be the wrist pins on the pistons. Acura "Would NOT" cover it under warranty. They said it appeared to them that the engine had been ran without oil, which is really strange since they did most of the oil changes. He had no warning at all, no lights, no nothing. Now we are looking at a complete engine swap out.

acuras claiming thats the problem of the noise? i'm not a master tech, but thats not an easy thing to diagnose as the cause of a noise around 3k rpm. maybe someone else can chime in, but i just have a hard time believing thats whats causing your son's rattling problem.
