Having problems with your 2001 Acura 3.2CL ?

1999 Acura 3.2 Problem

\015 Guys\015\012My 1999 Acura 3.2 , 138000 4 door is acting up. Whilst driving, the engine will just shut down. If you wait a while, or sometimes crank the engine immediately, it starts back up. The first time it happened the AC was on. I had it checked out completely by 2 mechanics but no one seems to be able to diagnose the problem. There is no error code, we cleaned the throttle etc. \015\012\015\012this happens randomly. HELP!!!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Check if there was a recall on your car. I had a same problem with my 1998 CL. There was a recall on my car about the ignition switch. The Acura dealer did it for free and I had no problem since then.

Battery dead, or starter problem? My 1992 381i won't start. The battery has at least some juice in it (I can turn the headlights and interior lights on). But the digital clock has re-set to 0:00, suggesting there could be a battery problem. When I try to start, it won't turn over. After turning the key to "start" once or twice, I receive a rapid clicking sound. I tried to jump the car, but that had no effect. Don't know whether this is a starter problem, or a battery problem. Any thoughts?

My 1998 Olds Bravada has violent shaking at 0-30 mph with no shifting of the trasmission beyond 30 mph. RPMs up to 2100 after 30 MPH. After 30 MPH and approximately 25% of the time I can manual shift into neutral and then back to drive and the shaking will stop. Also when slowing to a stop, sometimes you can feel a bang of the downshift. When gradually accelerating everytime, the problem persists.

When I drive for about 15-20 miles, the speedometer 0-outs and I have no acceleration. The "check engine" light starts flashing. However, the motor does not die. After 10-20 secs., the speedometer starts working and the motor is once again engaged. I replaced the speed sensor. The problem continued. I used an od-2 and the code came back as a defective EGR valve. I replaced that and it seemed like that would solve the problem. However, it did not. Same problem.

I have a 2012 Acura TSX. Problem is when I go to start the car while turning the key I hear a buzzing sound and the car will not start. Turn the key again and no problem it starts. The tech that checked it out said that I am turning the key too slow. I guess at the age of 50 I don't know how to start a car. So now I turn it faster if that is possible, and guess what - the problem is still there. Now this only happens like 2x a month but I am concerned that it may not start one of these days. Cou

I have a 2003 Acura TL with 60,000 miles and the transmission went out on Monday, June 1, 2009. The recall in a letter June 2004 was to install an Oil Jet Kit, which the Honda/Acura headquarters says it was done on 9/16/04 and discoloration was not found.
