1998 Acura RL Q&A

1998 Acura RL Question: Engine light hard start

Engine light came on shortly after refueling. Thought maybe the fuel. But noticed it starts much harder now. -
Answer 1
It could be the wrong blend of fuel for the temperatures you are experiencing in SD causing a lean (not enough fuel) condition due to low volatility.. Also the gascap could be loose or leaking which could turn on the light. but that shouldn't affect starting. I suspect fuel quality. BTW, I recommend you have the key turnied OFF when you are fueling if you don't want to set a trouble code and put the light on for no good reason.
