Possible you have to reset antitheft mode ,is there a red light flashing when you turn key to on possion not starting it ? some will reset by putting key in drivers door and turning it open close 3 times look for lights to flash then try to start.

You definitly have a timing problem. I dont think its a fuel problem due to the age of your car. Its about past due for a timing belt/chain replacement.

1996 acura tl 2.5 how do i test alternator to check if its bad


go to auto-zone if you do not have a voltmeter. they will check it for free. with car running there should be at least13.5- 14 volts at battery or better. take neagative cable off of battery, while its running. if car does not quit its fine, if it does alt. is bad.

I have a 2000 TL as well. Had a VERY similar situation. It wasn't a constant problem and ran fine between times just like you said! Frustrating!
It wound up being ONE coil that was starting to fail. www.acurazine.com is a wealth of info.
Bought one coil and held onto it until next time it ran bad, then went around the rows swapping out the old coil for the new one... one at a time, until it ran right. Then I knew I found the bad coil.
Don't know if this helps, but sure hope it does!

HAVE A 96 ACURA TL 2.5 , WAS RUNNING FINE NOW IT HARDER TO START AND RUNS ONLY FOR MINUTES WHEN YOU PUSH THE GAS IT TURNS OFF. HOW CAN i TELL IF ITS THE FUEL PUMP OR RELAY SWITCH? PLEASE HELP


You will have to have a fuel pressure test done on the vehicle ,but it is either the fuel filter,or the fuel pump witch has gone out,it is not a relay,or fuse,or the pump would not work at all.Replace the fuel filter and see if the engine performs correctly .If the fuel filter helps,but the engine still runs poorly,replace the fuel pump,if the fuel filter went to long,being restricted,it will wear out the fuel pump.

1996 cavalier with 2.2 wont start sometimes.i


Replace your fuel pump, starting to go out.Not bad idea to also replace fuel filter with fuel pump.

Going 70 miles per hr on highway just died. the only prior problem before was that the day before it was acting like it ran out of gas then it was fine


sounds like the fuel pump has gone out on it. To test your fuel pump have someone turn the key on, but do not start, and listen for a humming sound by the gas tank. It will only last a second or two. If you hear nothing then your pump is bad and will require removing the gas tank. If you do hear it try replacing the fuel filter and see if that helps.
