Question about 1999 Acura TL

Car completely shuts off going any speed

I have a 1999 Acura 3.2 TL with 135,000 miles, automatic transmission. I just started having a problem with the car shutting off going at any speed but then being able to restart it once in park. However, now it is shutting off at the gas station or going at high-way speeds and not starting again. However it is turning over just not starting/firing unless (and I am very lucky) I floor the gas.

    I have the same exact model (1999 3.2 Acura TL) 165,000 miles with the same exact problem. According to the dealership, the transmission has failed. Yet, other mechanics state that it is just the sensor. All I know is that the car will just shut off at any given time. As the other person wrote, when it does crank back up, I floor it. I have spent SO much money on repairs and rental cars, I am ready to just pitch this car. I've only had it for a year and a half. I am a die-hard Acura fan, but I don't know what it is about the 1999 TLs. Does anyone have more information on the recall that Acura did? Was it for the TL? Should I put any more money into this car? Thanks for your help!

    I also had the same problem with Acura 1999 TL with 132000 on it and I belive this has nothing to do with the transmission. I just replace the ignition switch and it runs great. The dealer charged me like $223.00

I just had this problem in my 1999 Acura TL also. It is the ignition switch. Mine has 200K miles on it though.

Transmission Slippage


You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

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.
