Most likely, the thermostat needs to be replaced.

if that doesn't fix it, check the water pump

Acura rl 3.5 antifreeze pushed out reservoir cap. no white smoke out back of pipe when starting


Blows out? Probably a head gasket. they don't always blow white smoke. Parts store sell a kit to check exhaust in the reservoir or radiator. Best bet. If it blows out, Fill it with water, leave the cap off. Start it and put your hand over the reservoir opening. You feel any pressure being cold. Head gasket.

A ight came on in my dash teling me to check coolent tempture and the tempture gauge was high


So you have an overheating problem. Check the coolant level in the radiator, check for coolant leaks with engine running (fill radiator if necessary), check temperature of upper rad. hose as engine gets hot (this checks for thermostat operation). Could also be a clogged radiator, bad fan clutch, or blown head gasket.

I need to find a driver side headlight for my 96 acura rl. any good suggestions?


Do a Google search and also look on Ebay. Might take more than 1 day of looking since items change constantly. If you have any nearby wrecking yards look there too. I think 96, 97, 98 and maybe 99 share the same headlight assembly.

The fan on my 96 acura tl comes after i cut the car off and runs loudly


The fan on a 1996 Acura RL will normally run for a short period after the engine is shut off if the temperature sensor determines the engine is too hot. However, if it is running constantly and not shutting off after you shut off your engine, then you will need to replace the fan relay. It is most likely stuck in a closed position. If your fan does shut off after running for a period of time when you shut off the engine but you have a noisy fan, then most likey the fan bearings are wearing out and it is more cost-effective to replace the whole fan. Thanks for using Fixya.

96 acura rl will run about 5 seconds then cuts off but will restart and cuts off


I had similar problem with my 97. Cuts off then on high way. I replaced the main relay, which controls the fuel pumper, under the dash of driver side. and the problem was gone.
