Sounds like your EGR Valve is plugged up or stuck open with a carbon build-up. Try taking it off and check to see if the above is true...if so, unplug and cleanup as good as you can. Re-install and hopefully you'll be good to go!

2002 acura TL-s engine code p1456

Code P1456: EVAP control system leakage (fuel system).
Probable causes:
1. Wire harness. Check for correct voltage, open, short to ground, short to voltage
2. Control unit software in need of updating
3. Faulty PCM or ECM
4. Vacuum leaks. Damaged hoses or improper routing
5. EVAP system. Check canister, valves, or components. (gas cap excluded because you say you replaced it)

Some or all of the above could be the source of the check engine light problem.

I have Acura 2003 3.2 TL, its Malfunction indicator light is blinking... suddenly stopped on way and when restarted... it started...possible causes?

Blinking check engine lights usually indicate the problem is severe enough that it could be doing damage to the catalytic converter. Typically engine misfires will cause this to happen. Check to see what codes caused the light to come on. Post them here and I'll be happy to help you further

Ok, my 2000 acura 3.2 tl egine light blinks and the tcs light stays on, also the engine has a slight shake at idle. Took to autozone to get the codes came back as all 6 cylinders misfire, multiple misfire,...

This is strange. The tcs is a traction controll error. If you are getting misfire codes and traction control warnings, then I would have your control module tested to make sure it is not having intermittent power issues to each component.

Acura 3.5 tl. will not start

The description in the manual is "Leak detected in EVAP Control System". These are the components that keep gas fumes from the tank from polluting our atmosphere.

Looking at all the components in the system (most are under the car just inboard of the left rear wheel)

If you have a reputable Acura dealer like I do, take it there and reference TSB 03 - 001 which described this code as a result of corrosion in the EVAP bypass solenoid valve.

Hope this helps. If so please rate me.

2000 Acura TL misfire codes

My TL would do the same, crank, crank, crank, give it gas, crank, etc, then finally, after everyone was looking at me like i was crazy, it would eventually start.
I noticed that strangely enough during this time, I filled up w/ regular gas at the same Exxon 3 times n a row, instead of going to shell like i normally do. (I used regular from shell or chevron in mine for 8 years & never a problem) Oddly enough,it would drive ok, kinda rough, for a short time then, i would walk out a store & it wouldn't start. I would give it gas while I was crankn it sometimes even until a cylinder would misfire & make that pop. when it would finally idle, just barely enough for me to put it n drive, i would step on it to keep it going. I even rode around for a week with that scanner hooked up to my car & the only code that EVER came up was cylinder misfire & only if i had to get on it & make it misfire. I put that fuel injector in my gas tank every time i filled up for about a month after the exxon fill ups & went back to shell & put plus instead of regular. We checkd the fuel pump, fine, the fuel filter, doesnt have one.
I have been fortunate to not have it happen since then but, I did some research on it & found that it could also be that the valve that controls the emissions, it would sometimes get stuck & not open/close properly thereby causing the engine to not be able to receive or give off the correct amount of air flow & therefore it wouldnt turnover to start until i would force it by giving it gas or making it misfire, or waiting a while for it to cool off.
Also, check out ur air compressor & make sure its not starting to go out. turn off the ac & see if it still sounds like ****. if it sounds better when its off then the fact that its going out causes it to pull more on the engine in order to keep it going. This could be why its running rough, like feels like its having trouble shifting in 3rd & 4th gears.
Just some advice I found helpful when I had the issue, dont know if its the cause of ur issue but, i thought I would let u know.....
I hope this helps ..... good luck!

Yellow dashboard light means...?

that is your check engine light. you need to take it in and get the codes checked to find out whats wrong. could be as simple as a loose gas cap.
