2004 Acura TL Problems

Check Engine and D4 Lights Flashing

The 1998-2014 Acura TL V6 may develop issues with the automatic transmission.

Rough shifting may occur, and the “D4” light and check engine may begin to blink. The check engine light will also illuminate, and OBD trouble codes P0700, P0730, P0740, P0780, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.

If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty transmission fluid may be the case.

In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.

The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF replacement intervals and procedure.

Engine Mounts

I found out that at only 83000 miles my TL had to have the engine mounts replaced already at a cost of almost $800.00

Automatic Transmission May Fail Prematurely

Automatic transmission problems are common and these transmissions have high failure rates.  Acura has voluntarily extended the warranty on many of its automatic transmissions, so be sure to check with an Acura dealership to confirm warranty coverage.

2004 Acura TL Recalls

Acura Recalls 2004-2007 TL Models Due to Power Steering Hose Leaks

Acura has recalled certain 2004-2007 TL models because the power steering hose may leak onto the extremely hot catalytic converter, which may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the power steering hose with a new heat-resistant design.

Acura Recalls 2004-2005 TL Vehicles Due to Corrosion in the Wiper Motor Housing

Acura has recalled 2004-2005 TL vehicles because the wiper motor may stop working. Water may enter the wiper motor breather port and cause corrosion, which may cause the electrical circuit in the wiper motor to fail. Dealers will replace corroded wiper motors and modifications will be made to prevent water from entering the existing or new wiper motor.

Honda and Acura Recall Various 2001–2004 Vehicles Due to an Internal Transmission Fault

Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
