00 acura tl wont start replaced starter still wont start it starter when jumped with screw driver but wouldnt go into gear is there a fuse thats stopping this

Use your key in the slot next to the gearshift. If your brake lights aren't working it won't let you put the car in gear. This slot is an emergency switch to allow you to move the car out of park to move or tow it. Either your brake light switch is bad or both brake light bulbs are out.

99 acura tl wont start. Replaced Nuetral safety switch, but still won't start. Lights work on dash, and head lights are bright. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Have you done the testing at the starter wiring your not receiving hot to the solenoid circuit on the starter when the key is turned over? Place a test light on the connector for solenoid hot and have some one turn the key if it lights check for constant voltage on the large wire connection from the battery to the starter. If that's all working your starter is bad.

Cost to replacing oil pan gasket on 1999 acura tl,

The cost of having that replaced professionally varies considerably depending on labor rates/parts in your area. This is not a question that can be answered accurately over the world-wide web. You need to contact your local repair shops with that question.

How to install a water pump for a 1997 acura tl

I suggest that you visit the website and register the car information. It doesn't cost anything and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The steps for replacing the water pump should be available there. It's a handy resource for anyone doing their own automotive maintenance and I'm sure you will find it useful. Sure hope so and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

1997 acura trys to start but wont turn over...

Sounds like a electronic spark module. You need to check if this happens again if it has spark at the end of the plug wires. At least if we know it has spark when this happens we can look at something else. If you take one wire off if this happens again take a paper clip or screw or anything metal and insert it into the wire boot. Lay it on the block of the engine and have someone turn the engine over while you watch for spark. If there is spark then we can move onto something else.
