One cylinder piston has seized. can it be repaired? 2006 Acura TL (manual) V6

Was driving and the oil pressure light came on, then engine stopped. Mechanic had a look and said the piston had seized. A while back one of his guys had done an oil change on the car but had left the oil cap off of the top of the engine and it wasn't discovered until the check engine light came on because moisture entered the engine. This was months ago, but I wonder if it is the fault of the mechanic who changed the oil? The engine seized yesterday.

Bad news is it can be fixed but requires complete overhaul I'll bet. Swapping in used engine might be better, or crate engine if price is not important.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor

Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

I drove for about 4km with oil sign on on dashboard all of a sudden car lost power I stoped to notice no oil in tappet cover but oil level is on max when I restart it idle for seconds what happened?

If your oil pressure light was on, but the oil level is OK on the dipstick, it seems that the engine lost oil pressure due to a failed pump (a rare thing to happen) or a blocked filter, or sludging in the engine.

The first thing to do is replace the oil pressure sender unit with a pressure gauge, and idle the engine for a few seconds to get a reading. If it reads zero, the engine may already be damaged. That loss of power sounds like the engine was beginning to seize.

2006 Acura rl emission code burning oil

Just as the code indicates, there is excessive engine oil in one of more cylinders. This is caused by bad piston rings or valve seats. You should have a mechanic perform both compression and leakdown tests on all cylinders to diagnose the problem. It is likely that the engine will need to be rebuilt to correct the issue.

My Acura TL 1999 is showing check engine light, P1259

Check the oil level on level ground.

V-TEC valve open at the pre-set RPM is total depend on the oil to opening the third valve.

If the pressure is not at the right level then the lifting will not be completed.

The lift sensor will trigger P1259 to warn the driver for V-TEC malfunction

Please rate my answer if it's useful to you.

Acura TL 2004, code: P0325 knock sensor1 (bank1) circuit malfunction, please help. thanks...

9 times out of 10 it is a faulty sensor. if you have the 4 cylinder engine, v-tech? it will be located on the back of the block next to the oil filter. if you have the V6 it will be under the intake can test the knock sensor with a dvm. set your mter on continuity, hook your leeds to the single pin conector and the side of the sensor, you should have a resistance lightly tap on the side of the sensor with a small screw driver. if the resistance changes the sensor is good
