Question about Acura TL
I need a diagram for the vacuum hoses in a 96 acura tl 3.2L SOHC engine, to begin with.
That's mandatory, I have some mechanical experiance. Next...I'll list the other problems.
1. I ran the car hot with a bad head gasket and a small vacuum hose where a big one should be resulting in,
- Maybe blowing the other head gasket
2. The rear pass side window doesn't roll down or up, I think it needs a motor.
3. The pass side window won't respond to the drivers side master console.
4. There's no AC Belt on the engine
5. The transmission fluid is burnt.
6. Sometimes the gears don't respond when you shift into them (Automattic Tranny) Exp: D4 = Neutral D3 = Neutral and you have to shut the car off then back on for them to work again.
7. Engine idle is unstable...again.
8. Car coughs and gasps like the exhaust is restricted but I just changed the egr valve.

sealers usually end up costing you more in the long term than the short term. these sealers react to heat and air. so you end up doing nothing more than plugging up you radiator, water passage ports, water pumps get damaged. causing more over heating problems than they solve. no i would go for what the shop gave you as a quote. that seems a pretty reasonable quote for the position you are in.

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.

The d is for drive, the number is for what gear you are using.Driving in 3rd gear all of the time will decrease gas mileage, and increase engine wear, but as long as the engine rpms aren`t too high there is no immediate damage.

as for the speedo issue, check your distributor. Make sure the wires(the ones that power the distributor) are not exposed or freyed. replace the distributor cap and rotor if you haven't done so in a while. As for the tranny, check your fluids after the vehicle has warmed up and on a level surface. A transmission filter may be need if you have'nt done it for over 50,000 miles or for the life of the car.
