    sounds like you are a tooth off on the timing. I just had a acura tl 3.2 here it is the same. just check the timing

    engine pinging could be egr valve not working or wrong octane gas.

Ignition timing can be checked with a timing light but timing cant be adjusted ignition timing for a 3.5 engine should be 13 - 17 degrees BTDC at 700 - 800 rpm.if timing off problem either the PCM FAILED or timing belt slipped timing.

You cann't remove only radio you have to remove whole panel which contains radio.

There are two possible scenarios for you car radio panel

1. Your car can have Navigator, Climate Controller and Radio.

2. Your car can have Climate Controller and Radio.

You have to open whole panel.

This Panel contains some of SRS components, so have to be very careful while removing it!

Please search for "Acura RL Service Manual"
