Question about 1999 Acura TL
My TCS and my check engine light went on. 1999 TL with about 162000 miles. Driving hwy is ok. But when it comes to a stop, the engine vibrates more noticably. help?
You need to get to a repair shop and have them read the diagnostic codes (the computer port is in the center console under the change holder/lighter). With that amount of mileage, it is very likely the code will show that the oxygen sensors and/or catalytic converters need replacement. If that is the case you will also need a tuneup (plug, wires, etc). I had this done a year ago at 160,000 miles. It is a pricey repair but I get 29mpg at highway speeds and it runs nicely on regular (less power but no pinging).

Replace your spark plugs and PCV. It's the cheapest possible solution. If that doesn't suffice Acura had a recal on EGR valves a few years back. I would suggest getting your EGR valve changed. It's not expensive and it's easy to get to. It doesn't take more than 10 minutes.
