Question about 1997 Acura RL

Open Question

My 97 Acura 3.5 RL just died while I was driving(has 240k on it but runs great). I WAS LOW ON GAS half mile from the station then it died. I put 2 gals of 94 in it, it cranks and everything but wont start. I replaced the fuel relay 5,000miles ago. I have been using cheap gas and whever it was low if I came to a quick stop it would stall but always start back up.Today I replaced the fuel filter and left it out while I tried starting it and no gas came out the line. Do you think $ 90 non returnable relay or $140 plus labor non refundable fuel pump is best bet? I am really just lost, would fuel not go to filter if relay is bad? Any question, comment, remark, idea would be so helpful!! I would be so grateful for any advice, need car for work and am pretty much broke at the same time. PLEASE ANYONE CALL ME AND EVEN JUST OFFER AN IDEA. Thank You 267.593.3455 Ed

SOURCE: remove back seat to get to gas tank to see if feul pump is working

If you ran the car out of gas, there is a very good chance that the fuel pump is dead. Gas is coolant for for the pump like anifreeze is for the engine. The pump has now been overheated and will need to be replaced. You must drop the tank to do this and I hope you did not fill the tank. It is a very good idea to never run your fuel tank below 1/4 because you stress the pump if you do.

Did you ever find a solution to the P0304 warning. I am at 40,000 miles on my 07 RL and got the same warning along with an AWD warning. Just got it serviced last week, what a coincidence.

What is the recommended mileage between synthetic oil changes for a 2006 Acura RL?


It depends on your driving conditions, and the stresses put on the engine.

A good rule of thumb for synthetic oil change is 6000 mile intervals

I have 97 Acura RL 3.5/V6, got 'Check Engine Light' on (OBD Code P0740) about a year, my car is running OK, except slightly low fuel economy (19 Miles/Gallon). My questions are: 1)Could it be just Solenoid...


it will be a solenoid
the code p 0740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid ---circuit malfunction===causes --wiring--TCC-- ECM /? TCM ( transmission control module
it is not a transmission problem so leave it alone
it is an electronic control problem so check wiring and connections and if it is either the solenoid or the TCM replace what is faulty
take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop have an tranny oil change done , have the bands and clutch pack s adjusted and have them check the TCC solenoid and TCM for correct operation
probably find that there will be an improvement in the fuel consumption after that

How many more miles do you have when the fuel light comes on?


Depends on a lot of factors:

1. Gas mileage of your vehicle. If you get excellent gas mileage, 50 MPG +, you can go quite a way. But with a 98 GMC Jimmy, you're probably getting 19 MPG at the best.

2. How you drive your vehicle. The gas mileage means nothing if you are street racing and redlining your vehicle through every gear with the low fuel light on. You definitely won't make it very far like that!

3. The make and model of vehicle. There is no set national standard for when the low fuel light illuminates on a vehicle, so they vary greatly anywhere from half a gallon remaining to 2 gallons remaining. In newer vehicles, the ECU actually takes into account how you drive the vehicle and what speeds you typically go as to when to turn on the low fuel light.

For your specific application, I would say it comes on when you have roughly 1 to 2 gallons left which means that as long as you are driving in a fuel conserving manner you can probably make it about 30 miles or so before you'll be running on fumes. But that should be plenty of time to find a gas station right?!

Hope this helps!

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going


You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
