Default RSX-S having transmission noise

My 2002 RSX-S with 20K miles on it has started making a noise from the
transmission. It only really occurs when coasting(foot of gas) in any gear,
but if I push the clutch in the noise goes away. The noise is kind of a
howl, not exactly a grinding noise but similar. I have had an Acura Tech
listen to it, he noticed it too, and he test drove another RSX-S with same
mileage as mine, it too made the same noise. His guess it is a bearing, but
would'nt say if would create a catastrophic failure or not. The tech had
asked Acura engineering and of course they haven't heard of this problem.

Has anyone else expericened the same issue? I seriously thinking of having
Acura do some major warranty work on my tranny.

Thank you,

Dave

That should be the input shaft bearing or an anti-backlash gear on the input
shaft. Wear paritcles from the baulk rings etc. get into the bearing and
cause wear over time. However, it should be a very long time before a
catastrophic failure occures. Anyway, it should be covered under the
warranty.

I'm getting sick and tired of Acura not having heard of "this and that".
Either it is blunt dishonesty or help from "college boys".

Good luck!

It would be the throwout bearing if the noise was with the clutch fork
actuated (pressure plate backed off from the clutch disc). But, noise with
the fork (clutch) released and pressure plate engaged the noise wouldn't
happen because there is no load on the throwout bearing and it is not
spinning either.

You are probably right -- except the noise goes away when he pushes the
clutch in, which suggests a clutch mechanism problem of some sort. I almost
bought the RSX S when they first came out, but the dealer wanted over 26k
for the car. I found several 01 new Preludes in Atlanta at same time (Oct
02) and bought one for a little over 20k. Actually like the car more in
some respects than the Acura.
