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.

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.
