My 2002 TL's SRS light is on after the head light repair by the dealer. When I brought the car to dealer, the technichian told me the SRS sensor is mulfunctioning. He told me they would fix it for free because the SRS system is on recall. But after they got the ordered part, another person told me the sensor and the mechanical parts in the seat are bad. And told me that since the recall is expired I have to pay for the repair about 1200 dollars. I don't want to spent that much money witout knowing they are right. I am not sure if they are honest because they told us mislealing information previously when they repaired the head light. Any suggestion? Is there anything I can check my self. I am not a mechanic but have reasonable knowledge in electricity and used to repair my cars years ago.
Thanks. Peter

I have an MDX with 185K miles I took it to the dealer for the 180K mile service which consisted of flushing various fluids. I told them that I had noticed that the car's mpg had dropped from 20.5 to 18.5 and that I was noticing the tach jumping from 1500 to 2000 when I was driving between 35 and 45 mph. They said the torque converter is going bad and that I would need to replace both the torque converter($2500) and the transmission($5000). I ask about replacing only the TC and they said that if I replaced only the TC then I would be back in in 6 months to replace the tranny and I would need and another TC. They also said that I should not flush the transmission fluid. Why? If metal is in the fluid wouldn't flushing it be a good idea?
To their credit they said since it had 185K miles, I should just drive it until it dies.

When does the timing chain need replaced on a 2004 TSX ACURA?

When does the timing chain need replaced on a 2004 TSX ACURA?

I have a 99 TL with 232K. Just got all 6 ignition coils replaced, replaced power steering pump, power steering line, fuel injection service..etc.

Now there is a whining noise and have taken it back to the mechanic and he says he looked at everthing and reflushed everything but still sees that the noise is still there. He says the whining noise (frequent at first with new power steering pumps) should have already died away but could take up to 300 miles to allow the pump to be broken into .

He did say that if after 300 miles, the noise is still there, I can take it back and he will order another pump and install.

Anyone share their experience? Is this common ?

I was stuck in the snow and when I was trying to get out the front tires were spinning. All of a sudden I heard a loud crack from the front and then some banging. Tires won't move anymore. The RPM's and MPH go up but nothing but lots of unusual noise from the front if I hit the gas. Axle? IDK

I have an issue with my rsx-s where in low gears (1-4) the rpm's will jump from 3500 to about 4000 when I accelerate without putting any power to the wheels. The horsepower kicks back in as soon as it hits 4k rpm, so it isn't wheel slip. Another problem I've been having in is 5th and 6th gear on the interstate. When you accelerate and hit just below 4000 rpm, the revs hold steady and no matter how much gas I give the engine, they won't climb any higher. It can't be the rpm gauge because it goes well above 4000 in every other gear, but won't in the higher ones. Please keep in mind this is a 6-speed manual, not an automatic. Thanks!

Had hose replaced under recall in 2010. Now had pump leak and needed replacement. Is this due to the original recall problem?

I changed my radiator about 4 months ago, then my heater went out, so I jimmy rigged fuses for one of my relays that got it working. About a week after that, my car died while it was idling, I had a jump and it started. Then 3 days ago it stalled when I was on the highway. I waited 10 minutes then is started. The next day it did the same thing but wouldn't start at all! I checked the battery, it's good, the connection to it is good, the fuel pump works, I changed my spark plugs a year ago..What could it be??
