2011 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.
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.
The exhaust recirculation valve (EGR) on the 1995-2014 Acura TL may fail, causing:
The EGR valve has open and closed positions, and opens or closes on command from the computer.
Exhaust gases constantly pass through the valve when it is open, leaving carbon deposits on the valve. These carbon deposits may lead the the valve sticking in the open or closed position.
To correct this issue, sometimes it is sufficient to clean the valve, but replacement is recommended in all cases.
