I have a 02 Acura RSX and I put on a really nice air intake about 6 months ago. Well, about 3-4 weeks after putting it on my check engine light came on and has yet to turn off. I took my car to Autozone and they hooked it up to check and see what was wrong with it. Come to find out it's a code saying I am taking in to much air and it's making my light come on.. that's the idea for a aftermarket air intake is to "take in more air".. So I ask the guy what can I do, he tells me to buy a new sensor and see if that works. 50 bucks later light is still on. I get mad and take my car to Acura and they say we can fix it for 500 bucks or you can just put stock air intake back on.. there has to be a way around this.. can you guys tell me how to turn the light off with out me having to drop 500 bucks or taking my air intake off?... thanks

Hello integradub: My name is Roger and I will help. The answer to your question is no. You do not have to remove the intake manifold. But before you start the replacement .MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE ANTI THEFT CODE FOR THE RADIO. You will need to remove the sub frame dampener and the intake manifold brackets that are in your way. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received as this way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
If the RPM's are going pretty low to where the car seams like its about to die, then it could be a vaccum leak. Whick could be cause by a bad gasket or something maybe didnt get sealed right when putting everything back together. If you do decide to change the gasket, i would recommend the "Hondata Intake Manifold Gasket". Its thicker and not made from metal and also keeps your intake manifold cooler.
