Can regular gas go into a 2002 Acura RSX type S?
yes you could, but there is a down side to that it will ping in really heavy load or driving the car hard because of the tremedusly high compression that's why Honda tells you to use 91 its best for the engine
The engine control system uses a knock sensor to control ignition timing. Low octane fuel results in pretty severe ignition retard, mine would not rev over 4000rpm on regular fuel, no knocking or pinging was evident, but neither was the normal performance this engine delivers. Compression ratio is 11:1 and high miles and carbon build up may increase this further.
2002 Acura RSX Type S It is a manual and you can move the shifter all around and not find any gear to put it into what could the problem be?
Hello, According to the Scheduled Maintenance Interval chart in the Acura RSX Owner's Manual, the timing chain (the RSX utilizes a timing chain instead of a timing belt) should be replaced at the 97,500 mile interval. Although it is recommended to inspect the timing chain every 30,000 mile tune-up/service to look for signs of uneven wear, warping, etc.
