Once in a while the car shows Automatic Transmission Loss and stops. One has to switch off the ignition and restart. This happens once in couple of weeks or so, as soon as I take my car out from garage. Kindly advice the issue and how do I fix it? Dealers tend to misguide you.
I replaced a Taillight Driver side and the whole Tail light assembly now doesn't work. The Turn signals as well as the Brake lights are fine . However the Taillight doesn't work on the driver side only. I had quite a struggle getting it out and I thought I might have damaged the Socket assembly . So I ordered another one for $25.00 plus shipping.. I still doesn't work . ... I went into Autozone and got some more lights and the associate said I take 2 different bulbs . 1 Single
action and 1 Dual action. ? I will try it out when the sun comes up today. "

there is nothing wrong with my car - I just haven't had a tune up since I've had it. what should be done in a tune up
It seems, that when the weather is hot, my dash lights don't work. The lights in question include ALL the instrument cluster lights, the lights behind the HVAC and radio controls as well as the lights that illuminate the gear selection. These lights should come on when the headlights are turned on, but they do not.

Occasionally when the lights DO come on, they won't turn off when the headlights are turned off.

I have checked fuses, logic dictates that if it were a fuse, then the lights would not work at all. What possibly could be causing this?
How much of the Acura Fluid to refill?
Just resurfaced rotors and replaced pads. Also had tires balanced and rotated. Asked shop to reevaluate rotors for warping and they say they are OK. Could this be a tire issue or balance issue ?
I can turn the key but nothing happens. No click-nothing. All the dashboard lights are on and stay on even after I remove the key. I can't get them to go off. I tried to jump start the car and nothing happened. The fob will not lock or unlock the doors. Working fine when I parked it. Went out to go to work and nothing.
Fuel fill is extremely slow. The automated nozzle continues to kick out during filling. I do not believe there is an obstruction but maybe a venting issue. I know there are several vents in this system but not sure if one specifically could cause the filling issues. No problems with how the car runs.
