|Mik||I have a 2002 Acura RSX (base model) automatic. It has a modified exhaust and a AEM cold air intake. Problem is engine light keeps coming on, and after replacing the evap vent valve, and the eval pressure valve, it bogs at 4000 RPM. Prior it was running great. I drive it hard through the outmatch/tiptronic gears. shifting by rPM. Any suggestions?|

|C25A1guy||if its intermittent like that, my best and most logical guess would be a P1166. Primary AF Sensor Heater Failure. Next on the list would be fuel cap.|

|Botulism||Had the light checked out a couple weeks ago, turns out it is the O2 sensor. However, lately it as been off for almost a whole week so i think it is ok. I am still planning on replacing the sensor though.|

|Boosk6||Check the gas cap- I know it sounds stupid but sometimes a loose gas cap will set off the sensor- tighten it down past 3 clicks and then see what happens- if it was the cap the check engine light should go off after a few driving trips|

|ToFu||you are at about 97k miles rite? might want look into getting a new O2 sensor (primary) known problem that it goes out from 30k-100k miles. same symptoms as my friends 02 type-s when he hit 89k miles|
|08-19-08 03:08 PM|
well its been about a week and the light hasnt come back. must have just been some small glitch or fluke, all i can assume.
but i am always prepared to head up to autozone if it ever comes on again.

|ToFu||well if the ecu hasnt been reset, usually the code is still stored even with CEL off.|
|08-11-08 02:10 PM|
Yeah, I doubt it is, I'm just saying if it continues to come on I'd get it checked out just to be safe

|D0RIKIN||Mine was on when i was buying the car. Turned out it was the O2 sensor.|

I'd still try to get them to read it if it comes back on. I had the problem with my old RSX where it came on, and went off, and came back on and I took it to get looked at... and it was hydrolocked

yea, autozone does do free scans, but i wasnt able to take advantage of it...because the light went off on the way there. they said it will only send out info if the light is on, so i just talked to em about it. they said if it is doing something like that, it isnt a very serious problem, if one at all. they said it could mean its just time for a tune up, spark plugs, or battery. (97k miles now)
odds are it is the battery or something because the previous owners never changed the battery. one, because it never quit, and two because the standard 5 year replacement stuff didnt really happen till i got it. so i was planning on chaning the battery anyway sometime soon. hopefully that is all.
