You either have igniton issue or a fuel issue. Both can be caused by several reasons. If you want to diagnose this yourself and you have the tools and know how I recommend going to mitchell1diy and paying the ten bucks for the info. If you don't have the tools and know how then noone is going to be able to give you an apsolute on what exactly is the problem without hands on testing but my first choice is for a fuel issue fuel pump relay and or fuse and crankshaft position sensor or ignition module for an ignition issue or ign or pcm fuse if applicable.
This is providing you don't have a security lockout activated. Your best bet is to get any codes stored first in order to proceed.

When I park my 2000 acura tl it has a strong odor of gasoline in the garage. it is hard to start and the fuel economy has gotten bad.


more than likely cause for this is a gas leak more than likely one the metal lines under the car has gotten rusty and started to leak
another possibility is a injector is leaking or pressure regulator is bad and it dumping to much fuel into motor but this will usually trigger a engine light (code would be a o2 sensor or bank 1 to rich or bank 2 to rich) also might also have black smoke coming out exhaust
So if u dont have any engine codes more than likely cause is a fuel line leaking

HAVE A 96 ACURA TL 2.5 , WAS RUNNING FINE NOW IT HARDER TO START AND RUNS ONLY FOR MINUTES WHEN YOU PUSH THE GAS IT TURNS OFF. HOW CAN i TELL IF ITS THE FUEL PUMP OR RELAY SWITCH? PLEASE HELP


You will have to have a fuel pressure test done on the vehicle ,but it is either the fuel filter,or the fuel pump witch has gone out,it is not a relay,or fuse,or the pump would not work at all.Replace the fuel filter and see if the engine performs correctly .If the fuel filter helps,but the engine still runs poorly,replace the fuel pump,if the fuel filter went to long,being restricted,it will wear out the fuel pump.

2000 acura tl wont start. tries to start but just


You definitly have a timing problem. I dont think its a fuel problem due to the age of your car. Its about past due for a timing belt/chain replacement.

How do I change the fuel pump on a 2000 Acura TL?


hi, when you turn the ignition on do you hear the fuel pump start up if you do then the pump is fine if how ever you hear nothing then the chances are its going to either be the fuel pump or fuel pump relay, if you have a look in your fuse box you should be able to find the fuel pump relay if you cant locate it then its best you get a manual to show you the relays location, you can then put a finger on the relay and when you turn the ignition on you should feel a little click coming from the relay if you hear this then the pump needs replacing but if you hear or feel nothing then the chances are the relay needs replacing.

you can also check if the pump is working by removing the fuel feed hose from the injector fuel rail then once this is removed you put a tub under it then turn the ignition on if you have fuel shooting out then you know the fuel pump and relay are ok and you need to start thinking of some other problem such as ecu etc,

see what you find then get back to me and ill try and assist you further ok
