Question about 2002 Acura RSX
My Acura died in the middle of driving it a couple days ago. Its not the battery and its not the alternator. I can hear the fuel pump come on so i am pretty sure its not that. Here is exactly what happened… I was getting ready to pull into my parking spot and it just died, when I tried to restart the car it tried turning over a couple times and nothing, eventually all it did was click. What would cause my car to just shut off randomly like that?
If you heard a click when you cranked it, that's usually a dead battery. But, you need to check the oil level. I've had 2 RSX's that jumped time because the oil level dropped too low.
The tensioner on the timing chain is hydraulically controlled, if the oil level drops the tensioner looses tension and the chain jumps time. Its an extensive and expensive repair.
