Question Answered: starting problem
April 16, 2010, 08:00 AM
One of my old cars did this in the rain and it was because there was a area where the water entered under my hood where the electrical box was, so my car wouldn't start until the area was somewhat dry. One day the car just completely stopped working and I salvaged it because the repair cost more than the actual car because it involved getting a new computer and electrical wiring. Hope this helps.
Question Answered: cooling system

I drive the same car and I've had to change my radiator once in the past 8 years that I owned the car. I'd say the cooling system is reliable if you maintain it properly like getting your radiator flushed and refilled at the proper mileage. Hope this helps

First thing get you battery checked. Sounds like your battery may be drained. I have a 96' Acura 2.5 TL with 212000 miles on it so I have had every problem in the book. After you get the battery checked then check your positive and negative cables and see if they're corroded. Both of these things caused my car to do absolutely nothing. Hope this helps.

I drive the same model car and my car does the same thing. Your button may be sticky because that's why my car does it.
Question Answered: How can I determine if I have a oil leak or not ?
April 16, 2010, 07:36 AM
I drive a 96 Acura TL and I had smoke coming from my hood due to a rear seal oil leak. The answer is yes you do have an oil leak probably from your rear seal. I had mines repaired a year ago and now the main seal is leaking. I took my car to the shop yesterday to have it repaired. It could run you around 400-500 dollars for this type of repair just to let you know.

I had this car for 10 years and it is the best. I have had minor problems and the engine is in great condition. The interior isn't the best because the leather seats are all cracked. I plan on replacing the motor when I get to 250,000 miles. Only 30,00 miles to go.
