Question about 1999 Acura CL

2 Answers

Total shutdown while driving

The car just totally shuts down randomly while driving under any condition of load. Usually it will restart by placing the ignition switch to the "Start" position for a moment or so. Is there some circuit Breaker or relay that might cause this and if so where might it be? The car currently has 150,000 miles on it and has not been abused.

I had the same problem with my 99 cl, it was the ignition, computer was not reading key in ignition. This was fixed by dealer, It was fixed under a recall notice, see if your vechicle is on the recall list

Check the main relay under the dash and behind the steering wheel. It is RZ-0088 and measures 2.5x1.25x1.5 and is held on by a nib that you slip a flat piece of metal between the metal housing and slide the relay up. Don't tug on the wires. There are other postings to show you how to re-solder the connections or just replace.

Tansmission slips


When you say the trans fluid is fine, is it a clear reddish color? does it smell burnt? also does your check engine light come on at all? how many miles are on the car? GM usually recommends a trans fluid flush at 100k miles under normal driving conditions and at 60k miles under more severe driving conditions. it sounds like there may be an internal problem with the bands or the pressure may be low. I would recommend taking the car to GM dealer for a better diagnosis as it sounds like it will continue to slip when it gets to normal operating temperature and it will get worse in the future. another option is to add 2 bottles of Lucas trans fix (48 ounces total) to the trans fluid but you will need to pump out that much fluid if the trans fluid is already full so you don't over fill it. the lucas trans fluid additive does work pretty good unless their is serious internal damage already done. Good luck!

97 jeep wrangler 4 cyl shuts down while driving already replaced fuel filter and crank sensor


Similar problem due to wiring on ASD (automatic shutdown relay) not connected tight to terminals on underside (fuse box under hood). I encountered this problem repeatedly after a mechanic (national chain) kept removing this wire for some reason (eventually causing computer to fry). Also related problem misfiring/backfiring/bogging down under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into computer wiring harness and disrupting sensor input/output signals. Placed 1" spacer on rear clamp to push battery forward, which cured this problem.

It's random failure of the ECM. I experienced the type of failure you describe in my '95 Windstar. Sudden total failure and check engine light on. Coasted to a stop (no traffic), let it sit for a few minutes with ignition turned off, then restarted and it ran fine.

1973 Corniche engine shut down


I sounds like a fuel delivery problem, I would first check the filter -above the rear axle- if it's clear, test the fuel pump delivery. ps; the original filter elements are hard to get, we usually fit a good in line unit instead, leaving the original filter housing in situ. Also, unless they are fairly new now is the time to replace the fuel hoses back there.
