I have a lift can I replace my oil pan on my 2002 tl type s 3.2 myself how difficult is it
Hi There,

Got CEL and TCS on my 2002 Acura 3.2 TL:
1. P0845 - Generic - Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor / Switch B Circuit
2. P0740 - Generic - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit / Open

Problems I noticed:
1. First drive in the morning, while it is cold outside and before the engine heats up, there is delay in gear shift from reverse to forward and from lower to higher gears, specially from 1 to 2 and 2 to 3
2. Transmission fluid is burnt / smells / I think I need to replace transmission fluid.

Questions: What may be the root cause? What should I be doing to get this fixed?

Please suggest.
So I gave my sister the car for the day and she drove on the highway for about 7 hours... Turns out she was in triptonic mode accidentally and noticed the car driving oddly but didn't think anything of it... She said it "sounded like an airplane" Thankfully the car changes gears automatically even while in triptonic mode, although it does so only when absolutely needed... My question is what kind of damage could this of done? Should I take it to a mechanic, oil change, transmission fluids?
2002 acura tl 3.2
To drain coolant from system
I went to get my emissions done and the tech said there was no power to the port. He suggested a fuse might be out, perhaps the cigarette lighter. Is that the ACC relay fuse? If not, which fuse? I don't see cigarette lighter on the fuse diagram.
Do you need to take the exhaust down to get it out?
Is it the bushings?
When I connect my A/C Pro DIY gauge to the low side it is in the red. The relays and fuses are in great shape but it still blows hot air. When I cycle from cool to hot I can hear everything cycling and working. Could you please help? Thank you.
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?
