Question about 2004 Acura 3.2CL

2 Answers

Engine maintenance My engine maintenance light came on earlier today. I can find a bunch of info online about how to turn it off and also that it is probably an exhaust sensor or something not too serious. Is there a way of figuring this out that doesn't involve going to the Acura shop? 2004 acura el

Hello. Yes. Go to any autozone parts store, or other parts store that has a scanner. Have them scan it, they usually do it for free in hopes of selling you something, and that will tell you what is wrong. I too avoid the "stealerships" as often as I can.

Check all fluids. brake fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, and oil. Check gas cap that it is tight. check power steering fluid then if you add any. work the steering wheel side to side for about 20 times at least. This will sometimes make the maintenace light come on. Check all belts.

It just quit.. it's trying to turn over but can't..it ran great up til today. The check engine light is on also. Thank you for your time


If it isn't turning over (you mean cranking to start??) have you checked if the battery is OK? Get someone with some jump leads to check that. If the battery is OK and you can't turn it over that would indicate a serious engine fault. I'm hoping for your sake that it's just the battery if I have understood your question correctly, because it could be that the timing belt has snapped or the engine has seized if it won't crank (seems unlikely if there was no warning like knocking noises)
I hope I have been of help

My 1999 Pontiac Grand Am is producing a smell from the engine that is coming in through the vents and I've noticed this off and on for a couple days. The Break and ABS lights came on today, though i had my...


Very probably a leaking exhaust. Its probably the joint between the manifold and the exhaust system. The ABS issue is probably a red herring.

Note. Get it checked out as that smell contains a lot of Carbon Monoxide and could cause you to pass out and die. Serious stuff!

Catalytic converter check engine light 2001 s60 volvo


usually if you start to hear a rumble, and by rumble i mean it sounds like a bunch of pieces of metal are clanking around in your exhaust then the catalytic converter needs to be repaired. It could also be the oxygen sensor which is located on top of the converter. Volvo did an interesting job of having them sit on top of each other.

I have an '08 2500 w/ Duramax. My dash diagnostic LED said "change exhaust filter" then "se owners manual" and the engine light came on. There's no info for changing and exhaust filter...


The 08 diesel vehicles have a particulate filter much like a catalytic converter an a gas engine, these exhaust cannot be modified by removing the filter . The PCM will monitor this function and alert you with a service engine light if an issue is detected . Removing this filter will also cause the vehicle to go into a low power mode until the problem is repaired . It is also illegal to remove this filter as it part of your emission system for that vehicle . I don't think your programmer and intake would cause you any issues.
