See if your car has an ignition control module. They will go bad over time and cause random engine misfiring. Just went thru it with my 2002 Buick LeSabre. 120,000 miles on the engine. Replaced plugs, plug wires and check the coils. It was the ICM.

SOURCE: I just bought a 2004 Acura TL. Regular gas use?

I would not recommend using lower octane fuel. I did try once with terrible detonation on start up an under load. The damage detonation can cause is severe. Damaged pistons, damaged bearings, etc..

2000 acura tl shows misfire on all cylinders but car runs smoothly


check that the HT leads are separated and not touching each other. The misfire may be simply the spark being inducted into the plug with the least resistance and is random and that is what is setting off the light.

Random misfire


Does th engine seem to run rough? Have you checked for intake manifold leaks? Have you contacted the dealer about a possible re- programming (refered to as a re-flash) of the PCM (powertrain control module) to correct this?

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.

Engine light came on while driving care on highway after 30 mile. Care was in D3. I'ts a 1997 Acura Integra and the trouble code reads random misfire, cylinder 2 misfire and cylinder 4 misfire.


with out being there to check the spark plugs i would have to say start there. most of the common causes for misfire codes especially randoms are the plugs and wires. good luck
