Question about 2003 Acura 3.2TL

3 Answers

I have a 2003 Acura TL with 60,000 miles and the transmission went out on Monday, June 1, 2009. The recall in a letter June 2004 was to install an Oil Jet Kit, which the Honda/Acura headquarters says it was done on 9/16/04 and discoloration was not found. But the problem diagnose on Monday was the 2nd gear not getting the cooler transmission fluid. I heard that Acura extended the warranty for these transmissions for a length of time and mileage. My 2003 Acura has 60,000 miles and is now 6 years old. I need help because they are wanting to charge me $3,800 for a new transmission. I heard there are lawsuits regarding this? PLEASE HELP!

    If you need a trans then that is what must be done, Japanese cars are 2-3 times as much to fix as there American counterparts.

My '03 Acura transmission went out at 72,000, & 4 years old in '07. Same thing - 2nd gear. Acura wants to exchange your tranny with another, rebuilt one. Go to one of the transmission shops, i.e. Midas, etc. They rebuild yours for $2,800, with one year warranty. There are no more gears in trannys, only electrical switches.

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.

2003 acura tl won't crank over.


Sounds like tranny froze up. Not what you wanted to hear, but the shop that put the tranny in should have given you a warranty. The lights came on, because the engine stalled. Please rate me if you find this helpful, thank you.

RPM shot up to 4.5/5 while idling


I have a 2003 Acura TLS, bought new Oct 2002 currently with only 42600 KM (real low) My problem appears to be the same. I noticed specificly on warm days after 30 min driving, when coming to a stop, the idle was about 3500 RPM. Parked the car, turned it off. When starting up again, RPM stayed at 3200, also couldn't put into drive (possibly safety mechanism to prevent damage to transmission). After 30 min when cooled, was able to start again - OK.
I brought it to the dealer thinking possibly connected to FAULTY TRANSMISSION". There was a special extended warranty issued by ACURA >>> http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/09-int/2003/acura/tl/index.html I believe it also includes 2002's. Your Dealer should check into it again.
My dealer, ACURA LAVAL (in Que, Canada) seemed to look at nothing else than the transmission. In fact, 2 days after not hearing from him, he told me that they had already ordered a NEW Transmission which is being put in as I write.

Hope this is helpful to any Owner/Dealer who reads this

Best Wishes from the Great White North- Canada

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.
