The clutch in the torque converter can fail allowing debris to circulate throughout automatic transmission.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because the hydraulic valve that controls the engine valve timing stops functioning correctly. A failed engine timing valve will require replacement.

The anti-lock brake system can sometimes leak brake fluid, making the brakes less effective.

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.

Automatic Transmission May Fail Prematurely

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to failure of the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve), or restricted passages in the engine related to the EGR system.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an EVAP system fault. Commonly this is caused by the failure of one of the EVAP control valves.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with a stored code P2422. Our technicians tell us this can be caused by spider webs in the EVAP system charcoal canister vent hose. Acura has made available a spring to install inside the vet hose to correct this issue.

Using the incorrect oil in the rear differential on cars with a limited slip differential causes a clattering noise on turns. Replacing the oil with oil specified by Acura should fix the problem.
The fuel pump electrical relay sometimes stops working.

The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve or the evaporative emission control (EVAP) solenoid can stop functioning. Failure of either one can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an EVAP system fault. Commonly this is caused by the failure of one of the EVAP control valves.

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.

Engine ping may be noted under moderate to heavy acceleration. Our technicians tell us a revised knock sensor and powertrain control module (PCM) software are available to correct this concern.

The switch that controls the cooling fan gets stuck in the "On" position causing the fan to run continuously, which drains the battery.

The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve or the evaporative emission control (EVAP) solenoid can stop functioning. Failure of either one can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate.
