Question about 2003 Acura RSX

1 Answer

RSX type S transmission problem

I just changed my clutch. i took it around the parking lot, driving no more than 5mph, and i heard a POP. That scared me so i stopped. when i went to move the car again. the car would not move at all. I could put it in to first gear, but even when i gave it gas it was just like the car was in neutral. the engine did nothing but rev and the car did not even roll. i check the slave cylinder and that is not the problem. i just dont know enough and i need some help. i dont have the money to take it to a mechanic. does any one have any ideas.

Check the shift cables where they connect to the tranny. will the car move in 2nd gear or reverse?

How to scare out a snake from garage

Use moth balls to drive it out. They do not like the smell and I have heard of good success with that. I will probably be doing the same around my house since my wife caught one inside. Hope this helps!

Check if you have the check engine light on, you need at least to have a scan of your car computer to understand what is happening

I have a 94 Camaro 3.4 5 spd. The other day I was pulling into my driveway and as I took the car out of first to park I heard a click at the clutch peddle wouldn't move. I tried to push the clutch in...

please excuse my ignorance here but never seen this car so iam only guessing but i would say that the automatic clutch adjustment at the top of the clutch pedal arm has broke that is if this type of mechanism was used for this year vehicle ,being a europeon mechanic iam used to certain design traits appearing on cars of different ages regardless of make and about this time period a lot of cars had auto adjust mechanisms fitted to clutches and then around the 97 period they reverted to a manual adjuster till the later models when they reverted to hydraulic systems with the slave cylinder inside the bell housing .This if iam correct is a simple enough job to do but iam afraid it can be bit of a mind teaser if you havent done one before or dont have the right tools so entrust it to local mechanic but dont be surprissed if he says a new clutch as well owing to the force required to push the pedal down as this force required if excessive will only destroy the adjuster again in a short time .

1995 camero z28. Transmission changes all gears smoothly including reverse. When I put it in park the car still rolls as if it is not in park. I thought I heard a pop a few days ago.

It sounds like there is an issue with either the shift cable or either the parking paw inside the transmission. You should be able to take to a local transmission shop for a quick diagnosis.

The 2006 acura rsx starts, but manual doesn't work

sounds like your clutch has gone out. the same thing happend to me. sorry to say but its not a cheap fix. first get it looked at to double check but im almost positive this is what has happened. this cost me around $1200. but my RSX is a Type-S and is more expensive. if you own the base model you are looking at around 750-1000

2000 Hyundai Elantra Transmission problem

I don't know if I can help but as an owner of a Hyundai Elantra 2000 GLS with 205,000 miles and the original clutch and transmission I'll try and help!

I always start with the lowest cost solution first and avoid mechanics as much as possible!

Have you checked the trans fluid?
It should be changed every 30,000 miles!
Sometimes a Lucas Trans Fluid will cure - fix slippage!

Have you checked for a clutch adjustmet!
An adjustment can cure - fix slippage!

Are you a clutch rider with your foot always on the clutch?
If so you may have worn out the clutch!

How many miles to you have on your Hyundai Elantra 2000?
