Known Problems

A loud rattle type noise may be noted from the engine after a cold start. This can be caused by a faulty valve timing control actuator. Replacing the failed actuator will commonly correct this noise issue.

Some vehicles may develop a soft, low brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition may be caused by a faulty vehicle stability assist (VSA) modular control unit. If this is the case replacement of the VSA modular control unit would be required.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P2422. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by spider webs in the EVAP system charcoal canister vent hose. Acura has made available a spring to install inside the vet hose to correct this issue.

Engine ping may be noted under moderate to heavy acceleration. Our technicians tell us a revised knock sensor and powertrain control module (PCM) software are available to correct this concern.

A faulty tire pressure sensor may cause illumination of the low tire warning light even if tire pressure are correct. If this condition occurs the affected sensor(s) should be replaced.

The hood may flutter or vibrate at freeway speeds. Acura has made a revised rear hood seal available which should eliminate this problem.

The fuel door may not open correctly at times. This may be caused by a lack of clearance between the fuel door and the release latch. The common repair is to slightly trim the top of the fuel door lock tap.
