SOURCE: starter replacement on acura 2000 TL 3.2

This starter can be changed without disassembling the top of the engine on the 2.5 with automatic transmission. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. First with any electrical repair disconnect the battery at the negative terminal. The starter is on the driver's side close to the firewall below the intake manifold. Remove the transmission dip stick so you don't ruin it, then look and study the starter itself. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. The top bolt is a 14mm and the bottom a 17mm, loosen both a half turn. Remove the top 14mm bolt first, then the bottom 17mm, this will allow you to pull the starter out of the bell housing. With some angling and no brackets holding the back of the starter you should be able to pull it out enough to disconnect the positive wire and 9mm nut from the soleniod. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. Now just pull it out of the engine and fender void and you've got it, saving about a hundred and fifty dollars of labor. Take it to the parts house and match it up with a well made remanufactured or new starter. Reverse the proceedure, hook up the battery.

SOURCE: p0405 code.. changed egr valve and cleaned passage

The truck has two egr vales unless it's a 4 cylinder, then it has one, if it say your slipping and it's automatic change the filter and oil in the transmission and add Lucas transmission fluid conditioner to the tyranny. If the EGR valve is still giving a code then it means something in the egr system is not working, and one item that comes to mind is the purge canister valve on the evaporative control canister. To test find the purge valve and crimp it off with a pair of vise grips to close the vent then drive it. If it runs good then you have found your problem. Also low vacuum can cause the transmission not to shift correctly as it needs a vac. input for it to shift. Check your transmission fluid if it is brown and sort of smells like onions then the fluid is burnt and will cause all types of erratic behavior. And since I took the time to write this I would like to get some feed back as I am about to stop doing this.

SOURCE: How to clean EGR valve passages in 1993 Isuzu Trooper DOHC V6

You have to the EGR valve (sometimes the Intake manifold to EGR Vlalve line also). After you remove it take a drill bit the about 20 % smaller than the actual hole of the outlet side and rotate the drill bit with your hand to dig out the carbon. Aditionally the line coming from the intake manifold to the EGR valve will clog near the connection to the EGR valve. I use either a single piece of copper wire or the wire that you would use to tie ribar together to clean the line. When your done cleaning take a piece of vacuum line and connect it to the diaphram side and **** on it... then plug the line well with your thumb. Grasp the valve and blow thru it... Air should blow thru it freely. Remove your thumb from the vacuum line and try blowing again.. No air should pass thru the valve.
Then reinstall the valve and start the vehicle with the vacuum line disconnected (but blocked off) Use another piece of vacuum line connected to the diaphram again and **** on the line.. The vehicle should die or run really bad. If it does this then you cleaned it correctly.

SOURCE: where is plug in acura 2000 tl for check engine

The OBDII connector is located in the center console just behind the ashtray. There is a plastic cover that must be removed and you will find the connector behind the cover.

99 acura code p1491


Code P1491 in Honda/Acura vehicles means insufficient EGR valve lift. Note - this is not the same as 0401 for EGR low flow when you have to clean EGR passage in the intake manifold. If code 1491 is not accompanied with 0401 - that could be faulty EGR valve itself. Try to reset the code, and if it will return soon - replace EGR valve. If, however you see both codes together - cleane the manifold passage before you replacing the valve.

I replaced EGR valve on my 97 Acura 3.0 CL after


I am fixing to change my EGR valve and the piece of paper that came with the part say this:

Important Notice
Before installing this part, check the EGR valve passage in the intake manifold and clear any carbon blockage. Failure to do so will result in repeat malfuntion of the EGR valve system. Refer to a technical service manual or contact a service dealer for proper cleaning procedures.

Hope this helps.
