I think it could last, factory says every 105,000 miles even though the car is 11 years old it hasn't been driven for all those years, remember on average you put 10-15,000 miles on a car yearly, so your car is missing like 85,000 miles on it which is like the car wasnt being driven for 8 of those years

What does the sevice code B5 mean on an acura tl?


B is an oil and filter change, with visual inspection under the car. 5 is a coolant change. If you had your timing belt done in the last few years, they probably replaced your water pump and coolant, so it would still be good. Most coolants, including Acura's, are good for 5 years. (the original coolant that came with your car was good for 10 years)

Just bought a 2000 tl has these problem P0780,P0740,P1750,P1751, now what i need to do,can i fix it my self,please help me


Their all Transaxles Codes

Being 11 years old,I think you just bought
a car, the previous owner got out of, because
you need a Transaxle Rebuild.

11 years is a long time for a transaxle

May be the second round for it.

What tuneup services should I be getting done on my 1999 Acura TL 3.2? It has 138K miles on it and has not had a tuneup since 75K 4 years ago...


Geez! Honda kept all the mechanics out of work! Well, a MAJOR TUNE UP must be done in ur FiNE & TiME TESTED car! Replacing the BELTS including timing belt/tensioner should be done. Checking brakes and FLUSHiNG brake fluids. Checking the underchasis, bushings, wheel bearing, wheel alignment, tires and shock absorbers. Checking clutch master/slave and toping hydraulics and gear oil in the transmission for manual. Checking electrical and ECU! Change oil, spark plugs, hi-tension wire, fuel filter, and air filter! Check and top up/flush steering pump. Check and flush cooling system! Thats all! hope your car will last another 10 more years! Taah!

My car has 134000 miles, last year we change the water pump and timing belt. what should I dot this year


Would not hurt to change the transmission fluid and filter. Run a can of good injector cleaner in your gas.
You did real well with the timing belt and water pump.
The serpentine belt should be replaced.

99 Acura TL dies when I try to start


I have helped many Honda/Acura owners on this issue. Many mechanics will replace many parts prior to solving this problem, which then creates unnecessary repairs and spending. So here is my diagnosis: Notice if your speedometer drops to zero when your engine dies while driving. If this happens its your ignition switch failing. Ignition switches in Honda/Acura vehicles years 97-02 encounter faulty or shorted internal contacts. This causes premateur electrical failure to vital engine electrical parts, causing vehicle to stall intermittedly. A recall has been in place since 2002, approximately 1.3mil vehicles are affected, call your local honda/acura dealer for info and possible free repair or replace the ignition switch yourself. Hopefully my info helps you!!
