There is no "misfire" sensor.

The computer calculates misfires based on the known RPM of the engine and how long it should take for the crank sensor to produce its signal after a cylinder fires. If it is slower than expected the computer recognizes that the cylinder did not fire and if severe enough finally turns on the check engine light and/or causes it to flash.

    There is a sensor. Error P1318 (Spark Plug Voltage Detection Circuit Malfunction) and one option is to replace the "Spark Voltage Detection Module." I already purchased the part on email and have it in my hand. But I'm having trouble locating it on the car. The inginition control module looks exactly the same but it's a different part. I was told it would be against the firewall be the passenger side but that is on a Acura TL and not RL. Need help finding it.

    I assume that most people don't really know a hole lot about what they are posting. Had you posted your comment initially I would have known that you where up to speed on what is going on and did your homework to find a solution.

    check the corner of the passenger side fender in between the strut tower and the firewall. If its not there than check the same area on the drivers side.

    Did you have any luck locating the Misfire sensor. I am dealing with the same problem on my 04' RL. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Check engine light has 5 codes, p1491, p1201, p1202, p1203, p1300


Acura 3 5RL Trouble Code Info Basically your whole engine is misfiring. BUT!! IS it running rough? What is it doing? I would replace your spark plugs first and check the gap. Clean your EGR valve and the hose running to it. One of those codes is about your EGR valve. Check out the first link I posted in this to see what your codes mean. If this doesn't fix it, you may have a coil problem . You can pick those up at a junk yard pretty cheaply. When you check the coils, make sure there is no gap in the stick. Half way up you will see a small skinny seam. It should be almost imperceptible if they are good. Also, there is this handy dandy sensor: Called a Ignition Misfire Sensor. I wonder if yours is bad?http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,carcode,1000966,parttype,10767 1996 ACURA RL Ignition Misfire Sensor 19100674-o5bk0cq15nzcjcdo4dxi1a1k-2-0.jpg <<<these are coils. Half way up the stick you may see that seam I was telling you about. So, make sure you get the tightest gap you can if you go that route.
