I have a 2004 Acura RSX with only 40,046 miles on it. Recently I have noticed a high pitch sound while driving. I thought it might be the automatic transmission but it changes gears smoothly. My mechanic couldn't tell where the sound was coming from and thought it could be in the engine. He suggested I wait for the sound to get louder. Has anyone else with this model RSX had this problem or do you have any thoughts about what it could be? Thanks
above light came on yesterday... manual says it is emission controls related...what am I looking at in part and labor costs??
my 1995 has a intermittent problem. The first time it acted up was a couple weeks ago. I started it up and it shut off. This happened 4 or 5 times then it started up and ran fine for a couple days. Then i was on highway and it shut off again. I pulled on the side of the road and restarted it. It ran for about 30 secs. then quit again. After about a 1/2 hr, it started and ran fine. Then it was ok for a couple days and did it again. I was stopping at a stop sign and it jerked alittle bit as i slowed down and then shut off when i stopped. It started right back up and ran fine. When it shuts off i still have the radio playing and headlights are on. Please help. Thank you.

I just bought a 1992 Integra RS with B18C Motor swap. I am having a hard time shifting into 4th, and reverse is sometimes tricky. I'll go to shift into 4th and most of the time it just won't let me. Sometimes it will go though, but I am constantly having to angle it just right. Reverse only gets sketchy every now and then. All other gears are fine. It usually grinds when I try to shift in to 4th and reverse. Grinds a little on 3rd too, but still shifts into it. My friend said its probably just my linkage. What do you think?
Often when driving
Hi. Last summer, my check engine indicator lit up and I took it to the dealership. They found Code P0740. They noted on my receipt that they found the transmission to be failing and recommended it to be replaced. I didn't notice anything wrong in the way my car was running. No noises, goes into reverse when I put it on reverse, wasn't slipping, it was running great, actually. But I know nothing about cars and when I was told that my transmission needed replacing, I had it replaced. Looking at my receipt, it appears that they also changed the ECU. The diagnosis costed me $70.04, and the transmission and ECU, $5,421.90. (Please don't scream). I was just talking to my friend about it and he told me that the only possible affected components with that code are 1) hydraulic control system; 2) torque converter, and 3) transaxle. He also said that failure of any of these three components would render the car undriveable. But my car was running just fine. He also said that the transmission is irrelevant, and the ECU is irrelevant. Can a mechanic please confirm all that? Thanks guys!
how do I take down the gas tank to change the fuel pump?
the green key light popped on when i was traving.Then my car shut down.but it started back up.what is that light for.
The problem just started recently. The release lever feels normal, however the door doesn't open. Are there any known problems with the release mechanism/spring assembly at the fuel door itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Trunk is closed but light on dash shows its open. locks and trunk button works if key is in ignition and on or with the remote immediately after turning of and removing key. But when I return later remote does not work. The electric locks inside do not work either.
Engine light came on shortly after refueling. Thought maybe the fuel. But noticed it starts much harder now.

oil is leaking now
left front wheel area squeaky
I went to the acura dealership and was given a diagnostic. It said that I had an oil leak and that the oil pump needed to be replaced. I wasn't able to see any appreciable difference in the oil levels after an oil change, though. When I went to an independent shop, they lifted the car on stilts and showed me that there was oil all around the bottom of the pan and drain plug. Does this sound like the oil pump needs to be replaced? It's a pretty expensive repair.
