Intermittent starting problem in hot weather

So I have been told I will need to replace the 'computer' in my Acura. I'm trying to get an idea of how much this will be. I also was going to check junk yards for this part. Just looking for any advice. Hoping to keep the maintenance cost down. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

He says there is no spark. Had to have car towed to this shop when it died on freeway in fifth gear. Now won't start. I'm kind of at his mercy but I wanted to see if I could get any further input on this problem. Trying not to get swindled just cuz I'm a chick. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

changed fuel filter, tested main relay, I can hear the fuel pump go on. one day it will start right up, leave it running for an hour and the next day nothing.

Is it fixable? I can not tell how fast i am going or how many miles i have driven

When I start my car 141,000 miles in the morning or after sitting for a few hours it is fine but if I drive home from work about 30 minutes of driving, run in the house and change, or stop at the store, when I start the car again it dies. It has no problem initially starting it just idles at such a low rpm it dies. It I push on the gas after the car starts and rev it up to about 2 or 3 thousand rpm and keep it there for 10-30 seconds it's fine. Taking it to the dealership and thinking the diagnostic might be a waste of money if someone already knows what this is.

The place I took the car changed the water pump and told me that the timing belt was fine and now it is broken. I thought they had bought the kit and were going to fix all belts. Now its costing me more money.

Couple years ago I bought my car and 9 months later I was experiencing major problems. First as I was on the high way the car would brake on its own and drive again but then to brake again repeatedly causing my passengers and I to feel jerked until I pulled over on the shoulder. I couldn't exceed 30 mph for that night nor get out of 2nd gear. The following day I took it to a friend of a friends shop who said it was the top dead center (tdc) sensor. So I bought one from oriellys but not even 3 days later the car did same thing but this time I'm allowed to exceed 30 mph and drive in all gears except 3rd

1997 Acura Cl 3.0
Had the clutches replaced new torque converter

car goes in neutral, wont go forward, but it does go on reverse, i shut it off and it goes forward again till u stop then wont go forward again.... HELP!!!!

Whats is my problem??
External sensor?
Valve body?

I was sitting in my car on friday waiting to start work. I had it running and all of a sudden the car turned itself off. No dash lights no power. I waiting about 10 mins before I tried to turn it back on out of fear. It did turn on and so far hasn't happened again,
It was the first time it's ever happened. Just bought the car about 1/2 a year ago. Took it to a mechanic who said that the car lookes like it was in really good condition.
I would be greatful for any help.

I replaced the EGR Valve as it threw all the codes P0301-P006 then also a random Cylinder misfire along with the P1399 they said that was the EGR valve took out cleaned the best I could and replaced with new. Did nothing else. Still having issues. Engine light flashes when accelerating then stays solid when at higher RMS's. This is a 2001 Acura CL S Type and never had one single problem with this car runs like it just came off the lot. I am shocked to say the least. It does have almost 150K on it so something is bound to happen. It's lagging spitting and misfiring. Should I change the plugs also before taking it to the dealer? I am a female so anything to me is foreign this was just an easy one that I was able to handle on my own. I keep reading about maybe a bad coil. It was pretty grimy and I dug out a ton off stuff. Thanks in advance

I tried using a scan tool and I have no display of Oxogen sendor bank 2. My interest is looking at the fuel trim for bank2., I have a 1997 acura cl 3.0 its the v-6 engine. I need to see if there is a lead wire coming from it and where it connects to the second oxogen sensor.

In August, 2014 it happened in the middle of rush hour traffic and now on Dec 2, 2014 on the 5 in Gorman, CA going 70mph in MOUNTAINS!

50mph winds, rain and it happened literally 15 times total!!! Driving 70 MPH!!!!! Why was I not notified and this car has been with one owner for 16 years!!! Will they replace this for free since it's their PROBLEM????? I am scared every moment I drive this car, I hate it...I literally have more anxiety then I have ever had in my life...


I went to do an emission test and found that there were no drive cycle memory. I did the drive cycle but still have the same problem. Every time I turn off the ignition the memory is lost in the computer. What can I do to fix it?

1000 miles ago. I don't think they can be worn again. The computer code says it is a shift solenoid. I changed a filter Honda said did not need to be after problem had happened again. (Should have in the first place). ? Is will changing to the recommended Honda atf clean up the problem? Or do I just drop in a Honda Odyssey trans?

in the number 4 drive position, feels like its slipping. what could the problem be.

sometime it would start, and sometimes it won't start

Crank sensor

I am doing an oil change in my car, changing all of the fluids and filters. This is my first time doing this on my Acura. I was able to change the oil and filter. Now I am un able to locate the transmission filter so that I can replace it. How do I locate and replace the transmission oil filter?

The front lower middle engine mount is also broken
