    I had the same problem with my 1,6EL. Had the car scanned at the dealer. Turns out the transmission was slipping ever so slightly. Not noticeable when driving, but the trouble-shoot system in the car picked it up. Had the transmission fluid replaced, and it solved the problem...for awhile.

    97 acura tyranny slipping. Likely that the engine systems picked that up and generated the check engine light. I disconnected
    the battery to rewset all systems ant the problem is still the transmission. But at least the light is out.

You can do several Things to reset your check engine light. One is to simply pull the positive side of your battery cable off of the battery. Im going to say to just leave it off for about two minutes then place it back on tighten it down and your done. The other way is to bye a check engine light decoder. Are find one from a friend any way it has a reset option on it that will reset it. Ok your welcome good luck and may the force be with you.

The check engine light can't be reset per say, it will go out after a time if the problem that made it come on is repaired or clears itself, you can turn it off either with a scanner or in some cases by disconnecting the battery, i don't recommend the battery option as you will set the radio to theft mode and loose all stored data in the computer system (PCM) Note that if the problem is not repaired the light will come back on in a few days.

under the hood near the firewall. One banjo bolt on top and a quick disconnect fitting on the bottom. Fairly easy-labor book calls for 1.0hr labor.

I replaced EGR valve on my 97 Acura 3.0 CL after


I am fixing to change my EGR valve and the piece of paper that came with the part say this:

Important Notice
Before installing this part, check the EGR valve passage in the intake manifold and clear any carbon blockage. Failure to do so will result in repeat malfuntion of the EGR valve system. Refer to a technical service manual or contact a service dealer for proper cleaning procedures.

Hope this helps.

My check engine lights stays on


Hi, the best thing at at his point is to get a diagnostic review by using a diagnostic computer at the local dealership or garage. Once your car has been diagnosed, you will be able to reset the cpu and the light will go off. its probably just an O2 sensor or egr valve needed.
