You need to get to a repair shop and have them read the diagnostic codes (the computer port is in the center console under the change holder/lighter). With that amount of mileage, it is very likely the code will show that the oxygen sensors and/or catalytic converters need replacement. If that is the case you will also need a tuneup (plug, wires, etc). I had this done a year ago at 160,000 miles. It is a pricey repair but I get 29mpg at highway speeds and it runs nicely on regular (less power but no pinging).

My tcs light comes on sometimes along with the check engine light on my acura 3.2 tl. The tcs lt is not on when I start the car, I have to press the button to turn it on. This starting happening rt after I had an inspection service performed. What could be the problem?

With these computers, anytime your check engine light comes on and than you replace the part, the computer has to be reset with handheld scanner/computer.
So even with a new part, the computer still has to be electronically reset.
Even if there are no codes. You won't have codes because the part is new, but the engine light will remain on until it is reset.
If you have all new parts, no codes, and had the system reset. It could be a problem with the computer itself and will have to be put on a diagnostic computer for further testing.

There are several things that will turn the check engine light and TCS light on .If you get the code I can tell you exactly what the problem is . On your year i see transmission problems as well as EGR problems. If you go to any large auto parts store they will check the code for free or a very small fee.
