Question about 2004 Acura TL
I bought a 2000 Acura 3.2TL a month ago. It runs great most of the times. Once it gets going it keeps going. But sometimes I have problem starting the car.
1) Run it for 20-30 mins @ 30 mph(runs fine) : starts fine after a halt of 5min/10min/30min/1 day with no issues.
2) Run it for 30-40 mins @ 60-70 mph(runs fine): stop the car and try to start it after a gap of 10-15 mins it starts to shake and seems like its misfiring. After 5-10 mins of continious try and shaking it starts and then the malfunction indicator lamp comes on. Again it keeps on running well (with the malfunction indicator lamp on). It runs very smooth on the road, no issues.
Even if I run it for 30-40 mins @ 60-70 mph and then I stop the vehicle and give a break if 30 mins or more, it starts without any issues.
I have taken it twice to the acura dealer. First time they said the EGR valve needs to be cleaned and the batteries needs to be replaced, but it again came on after a week, after that replaced the ingition coils. But didn't work, again the same problem appeared. Please please suggest what might be wrong. I have already spent more than 1200 USD on this so far. Thanks in Advance.
