I went to the acura dealership and was given a diagnostic. It said that I had an oil leak and that the oil pump needed to be replaced. I wasn't able to see any appreciable difference in the oil levels after an oil change, though. When I went to an independent shop, they lifted the car on stilts and showed me that there was oil all around the bottom of the pan and drain plug. Does this sound like the oil pump needs to be replaced? It's a pretty expensive repair.
and how do I know when I need valve adjustment?
how much should it cost to replace the rear mainoil seal on acura-- 2001 3.2tl
Would start with boosting; replaced battery and get clicking sound only. The car is getting power to lights, sensors, etc, but will not crank?

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.
At what point should timing belt service be done and what should be average cost?

When the car is started in the morning and the engine is cold, the steering make noise when it is turned. When the engine gets warmed up, the noise stops. No noise when the steering wheel is turned either left or right.
I have a brake lamp light on in my acura 2.3 tl 1997. It's the left side of the car, the right side is o.k. I put in new bulbs in, but brake lamp light is still on. Is it a fuse problem, and if so what fuse to replace? I don't have the car manual.\r\n
when im driving in the snow it shows a triangle with !
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

Spilled coffee on the gear shift & lower console of my '06 TL two days ago. All electrical is working & car has driven fine until today. Now I can't get it out of Park (the brake lights do work, however). Appears the coffee has gummed up the works. Gonna try spraying some contact fluid before having it towed for repair. How do I remove the black plate surrounding the shifter without removing the entire console? Or is that even possible? Thanks in advance.
Over the past several weeks, when I turn the key to start my car it doesn't always start. When I try a second or third time it starts fine. This was happening intermittently and I wondered if I just turned the key to quickly or possibly didn't have the key inserted fully. Now it won't start at all, even after 100 trys! No noise or anything. I am hoping it is a fuse and not the starter. I replaced the battery about 3 months ago, so that is not the prob. plus lights are fine. Help! If it is a fuse, which is the one I change?
