Do not start the car or even switch on the ignition key because that will start and fuel pump and it will pump diesel in the MPFI system and cause more problems. Call a mechanic to open the fuel tank and empty all the fuel and clean the tank.

Regarding the heating issue, sounds like your thermostat is stuck open so the coolant isn't heating up. (May need replacement) Does your engine temp guage show it running colder than normal?

The buckle and belt need to be replaced.  They are only good for one time during a collision.  The buckle has an explosive charge in it that causes the buckle to pull back toward the seat.  The belt does the the same.  It locks up during an accident, also so body shops can't try to reuse it.  The SRS light will stay on until they are replaced.

SOURCE: acura rsx trunk latch stuck & won't open

could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.

Sounds like intake air system, look for cracks in hoses (possible intake manifold gasket) all vacuum hoses and connections. Make sure TPS and all filters are clean. Sounds like a lean mixture/flooding issue. Common problems with FWD is the Air Intake Hose, lots of flexing. Cracks form on the bottom and debris comes off inside over time(thus fouling the TPS downstream). Remove inspect carefully, If it is hooped you can fab one up yourself with PVC and some clamps and Aluminium Dryer Ducting. With the proper alignment and bigger airways you will boost your performance. The TPS can be cleaned with Carb Cleaner, replace the air filter and then test with a Vacuum Pressure Gauge install in line, directly off a Intake Manifold Vacuum port.

Try that and get back to me? I'll be around...

Just replaced the starter on a 2002 Acura RSX. had to remove the intake. after the motor warms up the RPM's start to hunt. Did not replace the intake gasket. could this be the cause?

If the RPM's are going pretty low to where the car seams like its about to die, then it could be a vaccum leak. Whick could be cause by a bad gasket or something maybe didnt get sealed right when putting everything back together. If you do decide to change the gasket, i would recommend the "Hondata Intake Manifold Gasket". Its thicker and not made from metal and also keeps your intake manifold cooler.

Just did an oil change but cannot find the reset button on a acura rsx

I can tell you that on a 2003 you put the key in the ignition and press and hold the odometer reset. While holding the odometer reset turn the key to accessory. After a second or 2 the light should go off and then release the reset button.
