2008 Acura TL ProblemsCheck 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.
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
A squeak type noise may be noted when raising or lowering the front door glass. Our technicians tell us that in most cases this issue can be corrected by replacing the door glass seal.

I want to buy this 100,00-mile car from an individual. How complete an inspection should I get? Could I get a good deal on inspection if I was willing to bring car to shop for work as needed.
2008 Acura TL RecallsPotential Power Steering Leak
Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage. Power steering fluid can leak onto the catalytic converter leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire. Dealers will install a new heat resistant power steering hose to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is S39.
