that is your check engine light. you need to take it in and get the codes checked to find out whats wrong. could be as simple as a loose gas cap.

SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

SOURCE: whistling noise when accelerating

you most likely have an aftermarket radio installed
the noise you hear is engine noise, if yo turn your radio off it will go away
this can be fixed by either getting better wiring for your aftermarket radio or by installing a noise filter, you can purchase that at most big electronic stores

Acura integra using too much gas. Just purchased a used acura integra and it has very poor gas mileage.


Hi GailKol

Is there a yellow light on the dash? Is the car very slow and struggles to rev?

It sounds to me that the ECU (car computer) is in 'limp home' mode. You need to read the ECU's code, usually by the ECU flashing lights, then look at the manual for the reason.

First up, reset the ECu by removing the negative battery lead for 30 minutes or remove the large 75AMP fuse. Run the car and see if the light returns or that it is still consuming too much gas. Then...>

One of the most common reasons for poor gas mileage on Acuras/Hondas is the O2 sensors in the exhaust manifold. These can breakdown instantly and cause rough running and poor gas mileage. There are two on the two exhaust banches. If you change one it is best to change both.

Check the air filter for dirt, clean it or buy a new one.
Take the air filter housing off and run car cleaner through the intake manifold.
Clean the EAVC valve which is in the intake manifold while you are there.
Drive the car and take you hands off the wheel, if it pulls to one side then the brakes are seized (usually rear ones) and needs overhaul/new ones, this will cause very poor gas mileage.

Check the cheap/free stuff mentioned above first. I hope this helps and don't give up on your Acura. You have one of the best driver's cars there of the last 25 years :)....I'm very Honda biased :)

id say that when the car hits around 55,000 miles giving it around 10,000 to use the oil to the fullest also change the filters,sparkplugs and wires, and add some kind of gas tank cleaner to keep the car running strong :)

Sounds like your EGR Valve is plugged up or stuck open with a carbon build-up. Try taking it off and check to see if the above is true...if so, unplug and cleanup as good as you can. Re-install and hopefully you'll be good to go!
