Question about 2002 Acura 3.2TL
Anyone out there having any intermittent problems with starting? I have had some problems when I start my TL. Sometimes it cranks way too long. I have to stop cranking and start it again. It always starts no problem, after I start it again but it just bugs me !! Sometimes when it starts it takes a second to come up to idle speed.....the idle seems to "flutter" for a second before it idle's correctly.
Take your foot off the gas ,it is fuel injected

You need to change the timing belt

1) I guesssed hot start - I think the system is dealing with gas volatility and trying to ensure that a minimum of unburnt fuel is released into the cat - in the long run, that is good for the air and your car. 2) Here is a tip which really is a tip for everyone for every start. Turn the key to on, but wait a second until you hear the fuel pump cut off - that means the fuel rail is fully pressuruzed, and the car should start right up, for a cold start. It may also reduce the longer crank times during a #1.
