How can I reset the clock on a 2002 Acura RSX?

Are you talking about the clock on the radio? If that is what you are talking about then turn the radio off and you will see that under the FM button it says "clock" hold that button in and use the "4" button for the hour change and the "5" button for the minute change. Hope this helps. and if it is from disconnecting the battery, you will need to put in the securety code, you can find that in the owner manual, and if not, you can call an acura dealer and give them the vin and serial number of the radio and they can get the code to you

How to get my Acura RSX radio code?

I had the same problem when my battery died. I took it to the dealership fearing that it may cost money to find the code in their database. To my surprise, the code for my RSX was stickered to the outside of the glove compartment box. Siiting in the drivers seat, open the glove compartment, and look on the outside of the "inner" compartment. should be a white factory sticker

How do you remove the tail lights on a 2003 Acura RSX?

There are are few bolts on the back of the tail light that can be accessed from inside the trunk. Then there are two screws on the bottom of the lights that can be accessed by laying underneath the rear of the car and sticking your hand up behind the rear bumper.

How do you change the front drivers side headlight on a 2003 Acura RSX type S?

the front bumper needs to come off in order to take the headlight assemblys out

Not true, you can actually replace the drivers side headlight without removing the bumper however its not an easy job. Best thing to do is bring to the dealer which will cost you around 30 bucks to do. Its a pain in the a$$ if you do it yourself though, and is probably not worth your time to do it yourself.

Is it possible for a 2002 Acura RSX type s to drive 4501 miles with a quart or more of oil in it before some damage occurs to the engine?

It may. I have seen it done before; IF the engine RPM was moderate. If after adding the proper amount of oil, the engine is quiet and does not begin using oil, you may have lucked out.

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

Answeryes when i bought my rsx from Honda (used) they filled it with 87 octane but ever since ive been using 91 again. Answer

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.

Why would an Acura RSX compression 11 to 1 67000 miles smell like gasoline in the oil?

gas smell in oil is caused by blow by raw fuel pasing the rings on the piston therefore getting in the oil...........bad rings Now, now... That's not very fair. Just because there's a gasoline smell in the oil doesn't mean you should go tearing your engine apart to get to the rings. Generally this problem is caused by a vehicle running way too rich (is it misfiring?) or is a problem in the fuel pump area. Don't force a rebuild just because you smell gas in the oil. http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?UseCase=S001&UserAction=viewSimpleDiagInfo&Parameters=info

Can someone please tell you how to remove the 2003 Acura RSX Tail Lights?

Well you might be able to do it by taking the moldings off in the trunk but I have always just taken the bumper right off. It is about 2 or 4 of those plastic clips and a couple boldts and the bumper is off. Then you will have full access to the boltds that hold the tail lights in place. Be careful doing it but it will only take about 5 minutes to take the bumper off.

you create a strut on the mainstream devolper frame and transfer it to the secondary programing component which should be the sd-45. When done transfer the file onto the intrensic capacator and locate the sf-44 which should enable the mainframe to run the after market strut bar. Hope I helped!
