1998 Acura TL Problems

The green "Drive" light on the dashboard tends to burn out, requiring replacement of the burned out bulb.

The exhaust manifold commonly fails on the 5 cylinder engine and may develop an exhaust leak that is especially noticeable when the car is cold.

No need to replace the EGR Valve when this code appears; the valve itself is still good. The code appears because the flow is insufficient. Clean out intake manifold as shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOnoJFiwDKw

1998 Acura TL Recalls

Acura is recalling certain 1996–1998 TL and 1996–1999 RL models because an automatic transmission case bolt may loosen and fall out, allowing the transmission to disengage from the differential. This may cause a loss of power to the drive wheels without warning. Also, a parked vehicle could move unexpectedly if the parking brake is not set. Dealers will install a redesigned transmission case bolt to correct this issue.

The ball joints in the front suspension may prematurely wear out. The ball joints could break in severe circumstances, which may cause an accident. Dealers will replace the front suspension lower ball joints. This recall is expected to begin by May 17, 1999.
