Unless the car is at operating temperature , the engine rpms on start is hiogher the at run as the ECM has a higer setting for idle ( like having a choke out a bit ) until the engine checks are done and then it settles back
best run the fault codes to check for faulty sensors

SOURCE: I replaced EGR valve on my 97 Acura 3.0 CL after

Good news, the EGR valve for the 97 Acura was recalled. If your car is under 150,00 miles you should be eligible to get it fixed for free. I had the same problem with my 97 Acura CL 3.0. After changing the EGR valve, I found out that the vavle itself was not the problem, but rather a blocked intake manifold. Talk your local Acura dealer.

i cannot specifically point out what the problem might be, but an overheating car---never a good thing. check everything related to cooling. fans, radiator, hoses, waterpump, coolant overflow tank(see if its got a brownish color or looks like there is oil), and check your oil while your at it...

2001 Acura CL 3.2. Hesitation on acceleration.?just tuned up with new plug wires. any suggestions? Only code or 40 2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1.


You said you changed the plug wires did you change the plugs too? My daughter has a 97 CL and when her plugs get fouled it causes hesitation as well as problems starting up. If you haven't changed those do that first. Is that code correct at 40 or is it 401 ? You can take it to autozone and they can tell you what it means or the correct codes.

1997 acura cl 2.2 revs up to 1500 rpm and down to 1000 rpm just several seconds after start


Cars are design to run at a higher idle at start up to warm them up quick. There is a sensor that reads water temperature and tells your car's computer how fast to idle. Your RPMs seem slightly high but not out of the norm. Does idle ever drop to around 600/800 after about a minute? If not, your engine temperature sensor maybe defective.

Adjust idle on 97' Acura cl 2.2


Your idle should pretty much be set by the computer and shouldn't change to much unless some repairs have been or you have another problem. In any case below are the instructions on seting the idle. Also below I marked which fuse you will need to pull out for about 10 seconds in order to reset the computer. Make sure that if your radio has a security code that you have it before you pull this fuse as you will have to reset it. Hope this helps.

Replaced engine in 97 CL. All put together but power steering fluid has a lot of air in it and making alot of noise. How do I get air out of power steering system?


Let it sit with the engine off. this will help the air bubble seperate from the fluid. With the reservoir full (using only hoda/acura specific P/S fluid), the engine off and the front wheels off the ground turn the steering wheel full left and full right several times while keeping an eye on the fluid level. Then start the engine and let it idle. Eventually the rest of the air will work its way out. Heavily cavitated fluid will take some time.

You can also add about an ounce of Seafoam Motor Tune to the P/S fluid. This will help remove the air bubbles from the system.

I replaced EGR valve on my 97 Acura 3.0 CL after


I am fixing to change my EGR valve and the piece of paper that came with the part say this:

Important Notice
Before installing this part, check the EGR valve passage in the intake manifold and clear any carbon blockage. Failure to do so will result in repeat malfuntion of the EGR valve system. Refer to a technical service manual or contact a service dealer for proper cleaning procedures.

Hope this helps.
