Question about 1997 Acura TL Series

2 Answers

Engine vibration in drive or reverse

I have a 1997 acura tl with 197,000 miles. When the car is in neutral there is no vibration but when you put it in drive or reverse the car starts shaking. Also at 55 to 60 mph with the car under load (going up a grade)the car shakes but not the steering wheel. The vibration is getting worse I noticed that there is more oil on the frame under the engine since the vibration has gotten worse. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the advice the drive shaft bearing if any would not cause the engine to vibrate in drive sitting still, check the mounts ok.

    I have a 2000 CrownVictoria and have the same shaking problem. When I put the car in drive or reverse it starts shaking pretty bad. But when I have it in park or neutral, there's no problem. When I went to get my oil changed the technician told me that I needed a serpintine belt. Would this be the problem or is there another reason for it? Thanks for any advice.

Wow..thats not good..first have motor mounts checked, maybe the tranny mount or possibly if ur car has it is the driveshaft bearings...good luck on the oil leak...maybe tranny fluid..make sure if ur losing fluid that ur checking them incl. the tranny fluid...u might find ur leak first of all by rechecking the oil cap where it is supposed to be ...same with all fluid caps.

Seat heater stuck on, Acura TL


Check your fusebox for the fuse and remove the fuse, this will turn off the seat heater.
There are two fuse boxes, one under the dash and one in the engine bay.
Your seat heater is designed to run continuously so is most likely safe th drive the 10 miles to your dealer.

Sounds like you have a lost, or weak cylinder in the engine. A compression test and, or a leak down test with confirm the condition of the engine.

I doubt they did anymore damage but i`ll bet that the engine was damaged from the training going out such as valve guides and seals and carbon build up on plugs ETC.

During driving the transmission switches to neutral (Lexus RX300)


Your tranny need to be repaired at once. The tranny is slipping. Some Lexus owners do have the similar problem including myself.

1999 Acura TL Problem


The problem is the ignition wiring harness, as described in the May 2002 Recall 02V120000. I tried to get Acura to replace it a second time (first time they replaced it was at 75K miles) with no success. Car started stalling/restarting again at 200K miles. I bought the part mentioned in the recall (~$70) and installed it myself - have not had a reoccurrence since.

Check engine light + TCS = braking vibrations


You need to get to a repair shop and have them read the diagnostic codes (the computer port is in the center console under the change holder/lighter). With that amount of mileage, it is very likely the code will show that the oxygen sensors and/or catalytic converters need replacement. If that is the case you will also need a tuneup (plug, wires, etc). I had this done a year ago at 160,000 miles. It is a pricey repair but I get 29mpg at highway speeds and it runs nicely on regular (less power but no pinging).
