Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to be able to help you with your problem I need to know what year your RSX is as well as engine size. Also can you scan the computer system and see if there are any fault codes setting. Post back with the results as well as the year and engine size and we can work from there.

2003. 2.0 base . There are no engine lights and I don't have a scanner

Okay can you check to see if you are loosing spark to the spark plugs or injector pulse as well as checking the fuel pressure and post back with which one you are loosing when it will not start?
