Acura CL QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have a problem with the power steering in my 2001 Acura CL Type S. The steering seems to be unusually stiff, I have found leaks from the power steering reservoir. I have changed the power steering pump also but it did not get any better. When the tires are in ideal condition there is no problem, but when i steer left or right, there is a noise coming from the steering pump. The oil level becomes zero after i drive for around 3-4 miles. Is it a problem with the hoses and their connections?? Is there a clog in the system?? or has my rack and pinion system broken down?? How do i know when the rack and pinion system is broken down and needs to be replaced as i dont find any sort of leaks near the rack and pinion. Most of the oil leaks right underneath the steering pump onto the ground!!
when i push the button i hear the motor. so i took my door panel off and there's not much access to the window ect.. so i can see that there is a metal wire that came out of the track and i have no clue how to fix it unless i take the window out and i can't seem to figure out how to completely take the window out????????
and changed the thermostat. what is left to do????
car died while driving dash went black now car cranks no start check engine light came on 10 min before car died
With steam coming from under hood and all!! Let it cool off and added water. I c no leaks but car runs hot in minutes with pressure on hose. Did I kill my car??
How would anyone know it was leaking?
I just changed the EGR valve and it still is not ready. I drove my car trying to reset but still nothing.
You can still hear it clicking when you press the steering wheel. Also, the security alarm isn't on anymore. Are they related? Is it the relay?and where is the horn anyway??? behind the grill?
I keep getting error code in my radio/ CD player once car battery was changed.
keep cut off. I have changed the fuel pump and fuel filter check the Cadillac converter I also made sure that the alternator is charging correctly
Fans work, No leaks.
Don't know if it's fixable or duo I need to replace the entire ignition lock key and cylinder.
Also bumping, grinding noise when hard excellerating in low gears.
Noise is worse in 1st & 2nd gear, but also noticeable in 3rd through 6th.
sometimes the windows wont work either or the reverse lights. I have installed 7inch screen/radio but that will still work when the fuse blows.
Intermittent starting problem in hot weather
So I have been told I will need to replace the 'computer' in my Acura. I'm trying to get an idea of how much this will be. I also was going to check junk yards for this part. Just looking for any advice. Hoping to keep the maintenance cost down. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
He says there is no spark. Had to have car towed to this shop when it died on freeway in fifth gear. Now won't start. I'm kind of at his mercy but I wanted to see if I could get any further input on this problem. Trying not to get swindled just cuz I'm a chick. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
