You might consider a OBII diagnostic tester to find out what is wrong. US government insisted car makers had to make these cars easier to fix (democrats). I think I paid about $25 for mine at a local auto supply, here is one for your acura tl:
Cheaper ones flash a dash light to tell you what codes is showing the trouble, then you look up the code and it tells you what is wrong. It worked on my 93 Gmc recently and glad I saved a couple hundred dollars in diagnosing a coolant sensor problem myself.
I recently had the problem where nothing would happen when i tried to start the car. The negative battery cable was corroded so i replaced it. The car worked great. The the same problem. The starter was sticking. After tapping on it , the car would crank. I replaced the starter for about $90 and it runs great again.
