    On my 99 Acura 3.0 CL with only 93,300 miles. It is not covered by the recalls despite the fact that it seems to affect all the models around this year. I will never buy another Acura or Honda again. This is not the kind of problem I expected.

SOURCE: transmission dipstick location

Sorry, I'm just now getting it to you.  The dipstick is located on the passenger side of the car way down at the bottom.  It should have a yellow handle.  It's just to the right and down of the battery.  Let me know if you can't find it still and I will get you a picture somehow.

SOURCE: 97 acura CL ABS light goes on

The ABS light can be on for different reason.
sometimes a bad speed sensor on one of the wheels can trigger the ABS light.
The ABS module, or the entire braking sytem may be faulty, to find out there is need to test the ECU/ABS modules usinga code reader, and to inspect the braking system.

sounds like the trnsmission filter may be plugged or the ports in the tranny may have clutch debris in them, either way it doesn't sound good..

SOURCE: 97 Acura cl abs light on? What does this mean and

This indicates a problem with the anti-lock brake system, make sure fluid levels are correct, but it is likely that a sensor at one of the wheels has disconnected, causing the light to go on. If you have driven over road debris, snow, ice, etc. something may have damaged a sensor at one of the wheels. Jack up the car and support it to safely go underneath to inspect all 4 wheels at the back sides for damage.

It's usually the dip stick that is yellow. Be sure to bring the car up to operating temperature before checking/adding fluid. Almost sounds like a bad IAC valve or a vacuum leak.
