Make sure the cable clamps or bolts are clean and tight on the batt. Dirt will interfere and cause batt to act like it is low on power.

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...

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.

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?

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

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.

Starter engages slightly on my 2002 acura rsx but wont start car. battery is fully charged


Get a long shank screw driver and place it on the starter. While a friend attempts to start the car, tap the handle of the screw driver with a ball pin hammer. Sounds like the pin is catching upon deployment. Eventually your going to need to replace the solenoid and the starter.

My car wont start. I turn the key and nothhing I can't even hear it click over. I know its not my battery because everything else is working except for the car starting what can be the problem?


Is it a clicking sound or is it turning over like normal and won't start? If it clicks, it may be your starter. If not, it could be many things. You should try to get your car tested for codes. This will narrow your search. If you can't, start checking for fuel. Check your fuel pumps, filter, fuses, and relay switches. You can always spray engine starter in the intake. If it starts and dies, you have a fuel problem. If fuel is not an issue, it could be in the ignition system. The codes will really help you. You can usually find them at Autozone. The tester is around $50. It will save you time and money. You will need to know the codes on your car though. Buy a Haynes Book for your car. Hope this helps.

My 2003 acura rsx only start when i push it,whats the problem


It sounds like the Neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal or a starter problem. Try pushing the clutch pedal REAL FAR DOWN while starting. If it works have the switch adjusted.
If that isn't the problem try a jump start. If that doesn't work, a starter may be be needed. Try tapping on the starter with a wrench then start.
