Looks like you have check most of the basics - but i don't see anything about coil packs. Better check those as well. Not likely that all went out, but likely that one is misbehaving. Should be able to see the voltage toggle with a meter on the input. Also check compression to make sure the combustion chamber is OK

The question can you get a new one in. you can always cut the old one up enough to get it out. In the past, I've skipped the factory hose and put in a completely flexilbe one. You can have flexible hydraulic hoses made up at most truck shops. The only thing critical is the end connectors. You might even be able to save the old ones and splice in a hose.

Fuel reset buttons are usually under passenger kick-panels on the side. Follow fuel lines from engine back and should be able to spot the location as well.

Smoke can only be caused by something burning. Only candidates are oil and water. It doesn't take much - maybe even small enough that you won't notice loss over many miles. Check compression on all cylinders. You should see something there.

Amber, what is the question, mam?

1997 Acura RL | Answered on Sep 14, 2017

it will be a solenoid
the code p 0740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid ---circuit malfunction===causes --wiring--TCC-- ECM /? TCM ( transmission control module
it is not a transmission problem so leave it alone
it is an electronic control problem so check wiring and connections and if it is either the solenoid or the TCM replace what is faulty
take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop have an tranny oil change done , have the bands and clutch pack s adjusted and have them check the TCC solenoid and TCM for correct operation
probably find that there will be an improvement in the fuel consumption after that

Open either the driver's or passenger's side front door. The ends of the dashboard the but-up to the door when their closed should have a plastic cover/door that can be pulled out. Behind that cover should be a fuse box that might have the flasher unit.

Do you have mirror above or near your front windshield? my lights stayed on a couple of times, and I had to get out my manual and see where to click them off. I think when I put my sun visor up it clicked it to the on position on the mirror. I don't have the same type car as you though, but that could be where your problem might be.

Hi Naomi , there is a lot involved in the control of the cooling fans on your vehicle ! There are three fuse's , three relays an a fan control unit !
1. radiator fan main relay , located in underhood relay box A
2.condenser fan relay , located in underhood relay box A
3.radiator fan relay , located in underhood relay box C
4.Cooling fan fuse # 47 20amp. underhood fuse / relay box
5.condenser fan fuse # 50 20amp in underhood fuse / relay box.
Any one of these could cause them to not work, rather then just replacing parts an wasting money you should take it to the repair shop !
