Check the cars history for the ignition switch recall.
If it has not been done it could be your problem. Also research the fuel rely issue. Could also cause you to stall out.

    With the car in park and running...ever so gently barely move the ignition key both directions, again, move it just a tiny bit. If the car quits the ignition switch is bad.

    the tick tick tick is the sound of your starter trying to turn the engine over but does not have enough power. the issue is likely a dead battery from lack of recharge from a faulty alternator.

    and yes for me the alternator checked out fine also. However it lied on the test. easiest test is to turn on the car and disconnect the battery. if the car shuts off you know the alternator is shot. SO please remember a shot alternator can still check as good in a test.

    Thanks Nameless one. My problem was a dirty Battery terminal. There was little to no contact on the negative terminal. I cut it off and replaced it The oddest thing happened after I changed the terminal. I could only keep my car on if I kept my foot on the gas. Once I let go it would die. I forcefully drove it home 8 miles w/my foot on gas and break pedal and when i parked at home and then restarted it, problem disappeared. Is it true that the computer can loose important information on how to run engine if the battery is off too long?

    It was my battery terminals. The battery kept testing good as well. They were corroded beyond belief. It was fine for a few months then corrosion came back. It would come back every 3 months or so even if i cleaned it and put the gel. I think the battery was just bad because it leached out that corrosion very shortly after I purchased it. Once I replaced the battery all went well. It's been a year so far and no more corrosion.

Why does my Acura CL die when driving?


Check wires. Mainly the battery wires. then work your way out. Start the car up and start shaking wires until it stops. If that doesnt work, then get a mechanic to look.
