Geez! Honda kept all the mechanics out of work! Well, a MAJOR TUNE UP must be done in ur FiNE & TiME TESTED car! Replacing the BELTS including timing belt/tensioner should be done. Checking brakes and FLUSHiNG brake fluids. Checking the underchasis, bushings, wheel bearing, wheel alignment, tires and shock absorbers. Checking clutch master/slave and toping hydraulics and gear oil in the transmission for manual. Checking electrical and ECU! Change oil, spark plugs, hi-tension wire, fuel filter, and air filter! Check and top up/flush steering pump. Check and flush cooling system! Thats all! hope your car will last another 10 more years! Taah!

My Acura 2005 TL has 59,000 miles. My service person says I need to have the transmission drained and flushed, and new fluid. I have heard of problems occuring AFTER this has been done. Do I need to have...


Your service person is spot on. Yes you should have it done. I can attest to your skepticism but I think those horror stories come from some of the independent and/or quick lube places. If it's the dealer doing the work, they guarantee parts & labor for one year. Your service person is looking out for you

Hi There
Well it's bets to change it every 3000 miles. or every 2 months. It keeps slug to build up in your car. here's another tip for you change your radiator fluid once a year to keep it clean. hope this gets you in the right direction.

Had the same problem two years ago, and now have it again. Apparently, there is a special tool used to pressurize the emissions so that you can get a reading. Had to go to an Acura dealership about 40 miles from my home to get this done.

these cars have major tranny issues and acura is not helpful at all,my sincere advice to you is to sell the car asap!!! i owned one for 2 yrs and paid to have the transmission fixed twice,within that 2 yrs,cost me close to $6000. i will never buy another acura again.

ACURA


thats a lot of miles . I would check to see when the timing belt was last changed and if it is an automatic i would let the car warm up and the pull the tranny stick out and smell the fluid to see if it is burnt but thats a lot of miles and problems will pop up

1999 Acura TL Problem


The problem is the ignition wiring harness, as described in the May 2002 Recall 02V120000. I tried to get Acura to replace it a second time (first time they replaced it was at 75K miles) with no success. Car started stalling/restarting again at 200K miles. I bought the part mentioned in the recall (~$70) and installed it myself - have not had a reoccurrence since.

Check engine light + TCS = braking vibrations


You need to get to a repair shop and have them read the diagnostic codes (the computer port is in the center console under the change holder/lighter). With that amount of mileage, it is very likely the code will show that the oxygen sensors and/or catalytic converters need replacement. If that is the case you will also need a tuneup (plug, wires, etc). I had this done a year ago at 160,000 miles. It is a pricey repair but I get 29mpg at highway speeds and it runs nicely on regular (less power but no pinging).
