that the power steering and brakes be "flushed". The dealership said today that the power steering fluid was leaking and that the brake axles front and back are at a critical level (2 and 3, although I don't know what that means). Not sure who to trust and how urgent these fixes are.

list the maintenance and repairs that are suggested

Hi I bought my car not too long ago and I was driving and my car started jerking and misfiring. Every once and a while when I'm at a light it will idle weird like it wants to cuff off I was told the a/c idle valve needed to be clean but my engine light,Vsa, and my little triangle light were on. I think my car goes into save mode when all of these lights turn up because my car will not rev over 3,000rpm. I usally pull over and turn the car off and turn it back on and just the engine light will appear and the triangle and Vsa go away I took it today and had my check engine for codes. MAP(p0108) and camshaft sensor(p0344) i think it will resolve the problems if I have my map and camshaft replaced. If anyone knows how much labor is for both parts? I know where to get and have them installed how much is labor? Also if I want to merge with traffic fast it will jerk and not want to go quick

Took battery out to change starter. Must have left it out to long. Everything works on the car but the following.
Air Conditioning will not turn on. Heat will not turn on. Fans will not turn on. Defrost will not turn on. Lights on climate control dash are not on. This is not a coolant issue. I believe the ATC Module needs reset. Anyone know the codes? Or must the Dealer do this.

After getting a wheel alignment, I was told that my rear lower control arm needed to be replaced because it couldn't be adjusted which is causing wear on my tire. I shopped this work around to a few other shops and one shop told me that the rear lower control arm on my vehicle couldn't be adjusted. The folks who did the alignment said that my wheel couldn't be adjusted because the control arm needed to be replaced. Could it be that the control arm simply needs to be replaced and that's what's causing the abnormal wear on my back tire?

Need to know where release valves are located and what to do I need to know where the fill valve is on my car

I get a refund back from the factory because I had to pay out of my pocket

On my 2012 Acura TL the charging system indicator stays lit whenever I start the car but I have no problem driving or using other features in the car and service person can't find any problem with the battery.

Crank sensor is good, battery is good,starter is good

Because of reasons beyond my control I can no longer repair my car. My rear stabilizer bar link on the driver side needs replacing. I have all new bushings and right and left link.

My Acura TL 3.2 of 2002 - given cranking noise,vibrates when it moves 40 miles on stretch on highway.It doesnt happen for 10-15 miles trips.
1.)How long can i drive this car?will it be good for going to office daily for 10 miles one side or its a risk?

Also,I have seen engine light sometimes and the RPM soars (3 times in last 30 days)then but it becomes normal after restart.

2.)Is it worth reparing- Minimum estimate to replace transmission was 2000 dollars?

For example: when trying to parallel park. I have zero power to the power steering - it seems to revert back to manual steering. It takes all my strength to turn the wheel at that point...
If I drop into neutral and rev the engine, the power steering "returns" and I can turn the wheel. There are no problems with the power steering when the car is running at normal street/highway speeds.

There is an "S1" that periodically appears on the right side of the gear indicator lights. What does it mean?

I can't find any info in the owner's manual and the dealer has never heard of it! Can anyone tell me what this "S1" means? Thanks!

For about a month every time I turned the key on my 2004 Acura TL it would intermittently start upon turning the key. I would turn the key and I could hear the throttle plate open and the fuel pump engage. Everything would come on but I would have to turn the key like 10 times to get it to crank maybe once or twice and I had to put my foot on the gas to help it when it did finally crank(even though it's fuel injected)I would be turning the key another hundred times. Over the course of a month it just got worse and worse having to turn the key over a hundred times plus before it would start or strand me...driving me nuts. So I had to obviously replace the battery. I had the starter checked and it was fine, so after some digging I decided maybe I wore down the ignition contacts..yep I did, so took out the electrical part of the ignition switch and replaced it. That was me being a stubborn procrastinating poor man...so eventually no more intermittent starts every thousand turns of the key. But after I installed the switch, she would finally crank really well, but still no start. After installing electrical part of switch (I do get spark) I noticed that the fuel pump was not engaging anymore. I cannot remember if this was already happening before the switch or after. So of course I Took out the pump and dry tested and it worked just fine but once I put it back into tank no sound no nothing so I figured either it was freezing up for some reason, or it was not getting enough voltage to engage, but I have a new battery, so why not? I then replaced the fuel pump relay and even a new pump just in case, even though I know Honda fuel pumps hardly ever go out. Can't hear the new pump engage either. Someone Please have mercy and help!! Was it because I only changed the electrical part of the Ignition switch? Do I need to replace the entire "steering lock" as acura calls it? Is it a sensor like the Crank Positon Sensor, the camshaft sensor, both? Neither? So to summarize New battery, electrical part of steering lock switch, new fuel pump, new fuel pump relay, immobilizer is reading key, starter is fine, she cranks and their is spark, All other relays test good, no other blown fuses. I think that's where I am at and still no start. I'm not convinced it is the fuel/exhaust system, maybe the ignition switch needs the rest of the steering lock assembly and a new key to go with it, I don't know any more than the next average Joe about Honda acuras. Need help, need to have my car running so I can go feed my the stray cats I've fed every night for the last 2 years, they might be starving, I know they can hunt, but they look forwar,d to me being there every night for an easy meal. Please help me figure this out. I'm going mental over here. TIA!

i have replaced my starter, battery, and i have replaced my starter relay fuse. I checked the ground wires on my car, what is wrong with my car?? any help would be nice
