Hi TeggyGSR,

I have diffuculty understanding your question.

After squealing goes off, does it come back when you come to a stop?

Does noise level change when accelerating? I would suggest checking the beltings, they might need some adjustment or replacement.

Rattling of the hood could be due to the hood supports separating due to cracked sealants plus a low idling speed and bad engine mounts.

Also when I drive I can hear a little rattle that sounds like metal against metal, like my exhaust is missing a hanger somewhere, but I only hear the sound when im driving and I take my foot off the accelerator and let the car coast.

Where noise is concerned, it is never easy to diagnose without the physical car. You have to isolate or pin point the location of the source before we are able to help.

Rattling noise are usually due to loose plates and it could be from a detached exhaust heat shield.

Yes, that indicates belting noises. Check the belting adjustments and crank pulley condition.

Being from the same generation and model, they should be similar and applicable.

There is a hose for draining condensation water from the evaporator to outside the vehicle via the firewall.

Check if it is clogged or dislodged.

Now my drivers side window wont go all the way up, it gets to a certain point then gets stuck, plus it seems like it is coming inward into the car instead of going right up into the joint of the door.
My windows are manual, roll them up myself.

The regulators are failing. The brackets could be bent when excessive force is applied to wind it up. Try applying some silicone spray onto the run channels and if the movement smoothens out, you can stiil coax it to work for a while longer.

Most probably you would need to replace the window regulator and runchannels.

I was wondering how I could shorten my gears.I was racing a 2005 RSX and beat him in first and second, but my third and fourth gears are so long that he came back and passed. Is there anyway of shortening these gears.

Sorry, I am not into modifications so is unable to assist on this.

Just some info if it helps.
If you wish to be better than a car 12 years newer, it would involve increasing the power of the engine or you would have to change the gear ratios, which is a costly thing.

You would need to get a dyno test and provide the necessary data and then plot how it is going to be for the engine or trans. By the time the work is done, the other car might not be around for you to race anymore.

I had the worst luck today.I was driving and something flew off the back of an open-back truck, and put a hole in the bottom left corner of my engine(the block). I was wondering if I could just replace the engine block, or if its smarter to get a whole new engine.

A complete engine would save you lot of time and trouble. It should be cheaper as replacing of block requires gasket sets.

Sorry, I have never done this before so is unable to provide much info.

I have heard of B20 engine blocks with B16A heads modification. But problem is the engines keeps disintegrating when pushed to the limits.

Not sure of the B20 type you are refering to and ECU would depend on if it is equipped with VTEC.
