I hope you're not one of those fake RSX owners trying to make us look bad. I don't know why you'd be asking on THIS site... Anyway, if this is truly happening, bring it into the dealer and they'll pull the engine OBD-II code for you (likely for a price). I don't know if you're out of your warantee period yet but get it checked out.actionjackson said:Hey guys, its me, Skip, again. So I was driving my car around today for a little joyride, when all of a sudden, my car shook violently and there was a loud boom. Ever since then, my check engine light has been flashing and my car sputters badly. It sounds like its about to explode when I go into VTEC.
What should I do?
Also, it helps to know what you did prior to this happening. It also might help to "reset" your ECU but this doesn't. You can't simply disconnect the battery. I think you've got to find the right fuse to pull. What kind of gas did you put in? Did you overrev when downshifting? Did you have a tune-up or bring it in for maintenance lately? Maybe a sparkplug's not firing? I'm not even going to speculate on what happened. Get it checked out.
The RSX-S enters VTEC (no H) at 5800 RPM. It leaves VTEC at 5600 RPM. VTEC is just Honda's way of saying variable valve timing. It uses different cam lobes in VTEC. Essentially, it's entering performance mode.impalass96 said:when u go into vtech......what the f*uck does that mean?
