Question about 2001 Acura 3.2TL

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.

    The fuel pump could be going. (confirm psi readings with a pressure gauge)



    When was the last time the fuel filter was changed?



    Describe the appearance of the spark plugs.

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.
