My 97 Acura 3.2 TL starts to overheat and I also notice that the air gets cold when the heater is on. But when I begin to drive after stopping, the temp. goes back to normal and the air gets back hot again. Is this a thermostat issue?

Possible thermostat but more likely fan belt is slipping when idling causing waterpump to slow or even stop spinning. Tighten or replace fan belt that runs over waterpump pulley

My 2000 acura tl runs fine while driving temp gauge never goes up but i have noticied the last 2 days that when i have been running my air it goes up when im stopped or parked what could the problem be


sounds like the fan may not be coming on,The electric fan
should run whenever the air is on,if you start it cold,then open the
hood the fan should be off,then turn on the air ,the fan should run a few seconds after that.
If it doesn't come on,could be a faulty pressure sensor on the ac ,
bad relay or the fan itself.

97 acura 3.2 tl temp gauge doesnt read anything stays at cold doesnt move at all, whats could it be???


Your thermostat which closes when cold to let the engine warm up and opens when the water gets hot and lets it circulate through the radiator. If they stick closed your engine overheats in short order. When they stick open it takes forever and a day for the heater to warm sufficiently. This also makes the engine use more fuel. If your thermostat is indeed stuck open it is easy to tell. With the engine cold, take the radiator cap off and start the engine. If it is stuck open water will immediately circulate as seen at the radiator cap opening. If the thermostat were operating normally you would not see water moving for 5 or more minutes of idling. You should always drain the coolant, flush and refill every 2 years. Never ever grab that garden hose and put tap water in your radiator. They come from the factory with distilled water (about $1 a gallon at any grocery store) which has no minerals in it. The minerals in tap water promotes rust and scale build-up in the cooling system reducing it's efficiency. Don't use tap water unless you WANT to have problems.

There's no heat coming out of the vent, just cold air. What is the possible solution to this problem


possible low anti freeze, air bound heater core, defective heat blend door control servo. Start with coolant level, if o.k. check hoses feeding heater core. If the lines are both hot suspect blend door servo/control unit. If only one hose hot suspect clogged/air bound core. Special bleed procedure for engine. With engine running, check for bleeder scews at upper hose mounting, open bleeder and watch for steady stream of coolant. Be careful as coolant is hot. If this does not help, disconnect hoses frm heater core when cool and blow out core with compressed air to unclog system. I hope this helps.

1997 acura tl 3.2 heater gets cold at a stop..then the engine overheats..get back to 20MPH & everything is back to being ok


I'd guess you have a low coolant level, or an air lock in the system. At idle there is not sufficient flow for the heater to work (nor to cool the engine), but at speed you get better flow. Check the level, and bleed the system if necessary. I hope this helps you.

99 Acura TL dies when I try to start


I have helped many Honda/Acura owners on this issue. Many mechanics will replace many parts prior to solving this problem, which then creates unnecessary repairs and spending. So here is my diagnosis: Notice if your speedometer drops to zero when your engine dies while driving. If this happens its your ignition switch failing. Ignition switches in Honda/Acura vehicles years 97-02 encounter faulty or shorted internal contacts. This causes premateur electrical failure to vital engine electrical parts, causing vehicle to stall intermittedly. A recall has been in place since 2002, approximately 1.3mil vehicles are affected, call your local honda/acura dealer for info and possible free repair or replace the ignition switch yourself. Hopefully my info helps you!!
