Sounds like a mild fuelling fault, start by replacing the cheapest part - The ECU coolant temp sensor.

This sensor is located in the thermostat housing

I have reoccurring Fuel Injection problems with my 3.2 Acura TL

If the idle is rough but the engine otherwise seems somewhat normal, it could be an EGR valve stuck open. This allows exhaust fumes into the intake path at a time the engine can't deal with it instead of allowing engine RPMs and a better air-fuel mix to be established before dumping the exhaust garbage into the engine.
Frankly, I have the EGR 'cheated' on our stuff; guess Gore will never be my buddy...
I would have it scanned free at one of the auto parts chain stores.

1999 Acura 3.2 TL has 87,000 miles changed spark plugs but starting RPM still low about 500; sometimes it takes two starts using gas pedal. Can you adjust Idle or does it need timing adjusted.

You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

1999 Chevy S10 cranks but wont start

A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech

1999 Acura TL Problem

The problem is the ignition wiring harness, as described in the May 2002 Recall 02V120000. I tried to get Acura to replace it a second time (first time they replaced it was at 75K miles) with no success. Car started stalling/restarting again at 200K miles. I bought the part mentioned in the recall (~$70) and installed it myself - have not had a reoccurrence since.
