Question about 2004 Acura TL

1 Answer

Speed Throttle Hi, At the speed of between 40mph and 55mph the speed throttle seems to minimize (almost like loosing some power). Speeds lower or higher seem to be fine. Is this normal or do I need some type of maintenance service or repair? Please advise. Thank you.

Have the throttle position sensor checked.If that is ok, it needs further testing.

Ihave a 99 suburban 2500 4x4 it is shaking between 30 and 55 stops when I let of throttle and makes a rattling loose metal sound as it works up to 55mph. Any ideas on the problem


Bad tires will cause vibrations at different speeds. So will bad wheel bearings. My car made awful noise at fifty but not at forty and I had two tires the belts were broken.

Hi, I have a 1993 honda goldwing 1500se starts and runs perfect but when im on motorway (i know i shouldnt) but when i turn the throttle at high speeds such as 70 to 90 mph when slightly under load to over...


I would check the spark plugs if you haven't changed them in a while. How many miles are on the bike? Maybe timing belts are getting bad, they are supposed to be replace at or about 60000 miles. If all that checks out. Must not be getting enough fuel. Please rate my answer so my points are awarded.

My '87 samurai sputters badly when i give it throttle.


Try changing the fuel filter.If it is running ok at lower speeds around 50kmh/30mph I would say fuel supply is the problem.
Hope this helps.

TRACTION CONTROL.


that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.

Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.
