Update: I went to jiffy lube and got a tire rotation and oil change. The vibration has calmed down but its definitely still there. I checked my tires and 3/4 are dry rotting. Definitely need new tires, any recommendations?
The vibration you're feeling is likely coming from the axles. These cars are super finicky with axles and have a shaking problem all the time it seems. If you replace them, either look at getting your OEM ones rebuilt with OEM parts or find used OEM ones - the cheap auto parts store axles ALL shake/vibrate. Still yet to hear of anyone running those without shakes.
Edit: I didn't see this was posted in the 2nd gen section. Frankly I don't know shit about 2nd gen TSXs vs 1st gen - so I can't say if the axle problem plagued 2nd gens too. Have to see if someone else chimes in.
For tires, I'm extremely happy with Continental DWS 06. Good traction and good treadwear.
To help with vibration, see if you can find a shop that balances the wheels while they are on the car. Not many places do it but this method balances the entire rotating assembly and IMO is far superior in terms of actual balance. The caveat is it usually costs more and it also means you will have to get them balanced again if you rotate your tires.
Hey guys, this is my first post so I was hoping I could get some help with an issue i have been having. Usually during a cold start (first time start up in the mornings) the engine turns over and instantly I hear a grinding sound for a second then it stops. I don't really know anything about...
I have '09 TSX 5 speed AT, got Check Transmission and CEL few days back. Car is shifting very rough in 2 and 3 , above 40 mph driving fine. Local Indy mechanic said that's the mechanical problem in transmission and has to rebuild transmission. Quoted $2k to rebuild tranny with 3 year/36,000...
So I know it can only be a few culprits
15-20k ago in it's 90k life, I got into an accident; the entire front end was redone (radiator, hoses, etc).
My '09 TSX overheats while either stopped with the AC on, or driving pretty hard in city situations (7/10 times with the windows down a bit)...
95k 09, 5at, I use conventional oil. Bought it with 60k.
I'm worrying that I should think about a timing chain because if the issues with the 09. Idk if anyone did anything as a preventative matter inexpensively
My 2013 TSX fan is running before I turn the car on. It happens at random times during the day and turns off after about 3 minutes of driving.
I can’t hear it running from outside the car only when I get inside.
Anyone have this happen to your TSX?
