Question about 2000 Acura TL
Ok you crank the engine over, it starts,
it can rev. to 3000 rpm for 1 second in park ?
you then select, all gears forward and reverse and car can not move on flat ground, all brakes off?
can you push car in neutral on flat ground, , y/n ?
if no, brakes are bad. (or something more serious , ask)
if yes, tranny is dead (but....)
the if RPM rises, on engine (right foot action) and car MPH is 0
and rpm keeps rising that is a bad tranny (called slip or flare) in "D"
if you set the brakes hard,
and do the A/T stall test. (read the FSM)
and the RPM is way low that is a bad engine. (weak engine power)
if the RPM is good, stall tested. the engine and tranny are working. ( brakes stuck or frozen in ice?)
if the RPM flares, at stall test. it's a bad tranny
do the stall test for 5 sec max. rest for 15min and repeat.
STALL, test, makes tons of ATF heat. and heats the TC big time
RTM, it's all there. See FSM and read the manual.
