Had new rack and pinon boots replaced on 2000 3.5 RL now power steering seems to pull a lot to left. Repairman said I need an alignment? Do you normally have to get an alignment when you get new rack and...

Yes it is very possible the tie rod adjustment was not completely returned to it's previous position (not perfected by eye) after removing to install new boots; note be sure to ask that inner tie rod seals are ok, otherwise the boot replacement is only a temporary shield for the leak.

99 Acura RL 3.5 horn does not work

You have a defective part called a clock spring contact under the steering wheel, this contact is a coiled up simi rigid plastic ribbon with circuits embedded in it, after many years they l break and you loose the connection from the steering wheel controls (radio) and the Airbag. You must disarm the airbag on the steering wheel and remove it and replace the clock spring contact drum under the wheel, the cost is about $300.00

CdbI have an 1998 Acura RL, it is in pretty good shape occasionally the steering wheel will get stiff and tight. What could this be?

It could be a worn out belt or oil or antifreeze getting on the belt and causing slippage.

Steering wheel doesnt move up or down automatically

This happened on my 97 RL.

I cant say for sure with yours, but for mine, the gear for the up/down action somehow broke and developed an inch long gap.

Anyhow, google "acura rl steering column", click on any of the first few links and you will get an idea of what you are working with.

Remove the panel underneath the steering wheel. The motor for the up/down will be right behind that facing down. Unscrew the 4 screws on the panel connecting the motor to the column.

Once the motor is off, check to see if that is the problem (it shouldnt be) simply by using the tilt steering switch. If the motor is fine, check the gear it was just attached to. It will be really greasy, but check to see if the gear is sound.

If it is a broken gear, I unfortunately dont know how to fix it. If more than one person is driving the car (as in my case) you can finagle the motor onto the gear using the tilt switch and you can move the wheel into a happy medium for both parties (using the seat for fine tuning). Once done, and every thing is put back together, disconnect the motor cord cause the wheel will be able to tilt, but will get stuck again once it hits the gap in the gear.
