My name is Michael Moran Jr. I am a Master Certified Technician with over 18 years of experience in the auto service industry. I am currently shop foreman at our family owned service facility founded by my father Mike Moran Sr. in 1982. My credentials include C1 Service Consulant, Advanced Engine Performance Specialist (ASE L1), Collision Mechanical and Electrical components (ASE B5). I believe that in my field of work "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". So, how may I help you?

Question Answered: 

Under Intake manifold on firewall side. Hopefully you've had vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Technician already. I'm sure it would be helpful is you had the replacement part on hand as well. Hard to replace? that depends on your mechanical abilities/tool arsenal too. Good Luck hope everything works out.

Do you if its part is New,Re-manufactured/Rebuilt? Sometimes its hard to believe but one gets what one pays for... So i recommend you compare Warranty (Parts/Labor),Brand because a Master Cylinder play a very important roll within the brake system of any vehicle. Good luck.

Question Answered: 

On your vehicle you have a primary fan (Mechanically operated by fluid displacement) Only way to test the fan clutch is with engine off and cold engine. Carefully inspect if front of fan clutch is oily? Indicating not enough internal fluid to operate as designed. Also have your secondary fan (electrically control) because sounds like that was the cause of original cooling system failure.

Question Answered: 

May want to confirm that your fuel tank has fuel in it. Sounds crazy but fuel gauge malfunctions do NOT have a failure indicator prior to failure. Also check fuse's too. If you find a blown fuse and it starts then drive it to your service station and point out which fuse was blown so they could determine the root cause.

Confirm your battery connection are NOT loose. Could be something in the staring system: Battery Cables,Starter Motor,Battery or even ignition switch. I would advise you to have your regular service technician inspect it before it leaves you stranded. Good luck.

Question Answered: 

I would recommend that you investigate a little more into your wiper motor/linkage and figure out what is the root cause or have your normal service shop look into the wiper linkage malfunction. Cost can be figured out once it is known what all is required.

I would have your Acura inspected by a qualified Technician because it could progress into a serious starting system malfunction &/or even an electrical fire. I do NOT believe its related to ignition wires because your vehicle has a coil over plug design. Good Luck.
