#990 of 1046 CLIKING NOISE!!
Feb 01, 2008 (6:00 pm)
I have owned the 2002 Acura RSX type S for about 1 month. The car does have 17" aftermarket rims and low pro tires. I have been hearing this clicking noise from the front right, by the tire. I know its not the wheels.. This clicking comes on when i press my brakes or accelerate sometimes I did replace the struts and nothing changed. Its getting really annoing.I have also noticed when switching to 2nd gear there is a lil roughness in the shift, Anyone have any suggestions on what it is.
#992 of 1046 maintenance required light on at 30k mil
May 24, 2006 (10:42 am)
The dealership wants approximately $380 to come in and have them change the air filter, cabin filter..and do some check up..
How can I save money and do things myself? and how necessary at 30k miles is it to have them (the dealership) check the car out?
Also, any local area (Los Angeles) RSX Owners use someone certified, more care giving and less expensive then the Acura Dealership?
thanks so much

if you want to do the 30K service by the book, BUT:
1. you can change both filters yourself, for about $30 in parts.
2. for $380, the dealer is without a doubt doing some type of laundry list of "services they recommend" - you could just ask them to do what is listed in the book for 30K (pretty much just those filters, tire rotation, and oil change) and see what they say for price
3. you could have a private shop just do those things, for even less money
4. you could get an oil change and turn the maintenance light off yourself - just hold down the odometer button and turn the key to 'on', hold it for a count of five or so, and the light goes out.
Some inspections are part of the maintenance schedule Honda provides. It might not be a bad idea to do them if you plan to keep the car a long time.

thanks so much.
I've asked acura and they say as long as I keep receipts my extended warranty is intaked.
I already did the oil and had the tires rotated months ago...so I'm gonna change the air filter and cabin filter..
I'm sure the belts are fine at 30K...
have a great memorial day weekend...safe driving.
#995 of 1046 RSX noise on low speed
Feb 06, 2008 (6:58 pm)
I am trying to buy a 2004 rsx
I just looked at one this afternoon.
Car is in good shape and deal is pretty good too.
I would love to buy it if I can resolve this problem.
when I was test driving this car, I noticed high-pitched noise comming from
the front of the car. I could only hear it between 0-10 miles and when I went faster
the sound disappeared.
Noise sounded like high-pitched electric/flapping sound. I was not loud but I could clearly hear it.
I am a first time driver and knows nothing about car.
Please enlight me people!

I've had RSX'03 for 5 years now. A month or so ago, at mileage of 127K, high-pitched, buzz-like noise started in engine bay, driver's side.
At irst, it was heard only when starting car cold; now it may be heard any time.
It's hard to replicate, as it comes and goes.
any suggection will be greatly appreciated!

No Low Beams on my 2004 Acura Help,
I turned on my head lights only to find no low beams, but I have high beams and all other lights. Any one else have this problem and does any one know what the problem might be? I have had to replace the drivers side low beam bulb twice before this happened.
