Regarding the heating issue, sounds like your thermostat is stuck open so the coolant isn't heating up. (May need replacement) Does your engine temp guage show it running colder than normal?

Would a intake leak or vacume leak cause my 2003 acura rsx to rev up and then die when i start it ?


On the RSX I'd check the IACV (Idle Air Control Valve) It's on the bottom of the throttle body and if stuck open can cause this. Also, make sure to check all sensors under the hood are in and tight. If it's none of those may want to look at the fuel pump.

I overflowed the motor oil on my 02 acura rsx and now my engine light blinks and the car sputters


Have you drained out the excess oil from the sump. Run fault codes and see which sensor/servo has been affected by the over full situation

Sputtered for a few days, but now won't start at all. Where should I start?


You should have had it properly diagnosed & all
issues resolved six months ago,now you may have
issues you can't afford to repair.

You obviously need professional help from a repair
shop & soon

Do you think 16oz of anything in 16 gallons of gas,
would do anything other than take your money,NO

2003 acura rsx. my maint. light just came on the other day. my stock alarm only works when it wants to and the passenger side air bag light comes on randomly. im thinking there is some kind of electrical...


It's possible that there's a short someplace. You'd have to take it to the dealership for a diagnostic check. This will cost you money. Electronics in these cars is not an easy fix. The random side air-bag thing happens in our cars often. It's a bug in the system but doesn't mean anything is really wrong with it. Happens to everyone I know that has an RSX, which is about half the people on the forums in clubrsx.com (your problem may be different than anyone elses)
Check the forum there, people may be able to help you far more than here.

2003 acura rsx cough sputter


Sounds like intake air system, look for cracks in hoses (possible intake manifold gasket) all vacuum hoses and connections. Make sure TPS and all filters are clean. Sounds like a lean mixture/flooding issue. Common problems with FWD is the Air Intake Hose, lots of flexing. Cracks form on the bottom and debris comes off inside over time(thus fouling the TPS downstream). Remove inspect carefully, If it is hooped you can fab one up yourself with PVC and some clamps and Aluminium Dryer Ducting. With the proper alignment and bigger airways you will boost your performance. The TPS can be cleaned with Carb Cleaner, replace the air filter and then test with a Vacuum Pressure Gauge install in line, directly off a Intake Manifold Vacuum port.

Try that and get back to me? I'll be around...
