Question about 1997 Acura TL Series
The guy is asking how to drop the tank because it is stuck. I am having the same problem with a 96 Acura tl 2.5l I have everything unbolted but the gas tank does not want to budge.

I have done all the necessary steps to drop the tank but it is stuck like there is glue. I've used my body weight to pull down the tank and no luck. Even a pry bar too.....is there any other solution?

Drain the tank with a fuel evacuation pump, then remove the straps that hold the tank in. Once you have done that slowly let the tank down. There will be hoses that are connected to the tank remove those. Then disconnect the fuel lines. Un-clip the electrical connection from the fuel pump, then lower it to the ground and drag it out.
