I'd check fuel pump first. Could be a bad pump unit.

SOURCE: trying to replace a front headlight bulb on 2001 acura 3.2 TL

Look for the end of the wire retainer clip. Unhook it and lift it up. Remember not to touch the bulb. But if you do, just clean it with a bit of alcohol.

btw - Here's a bit of info from a previous post of mine...
The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out. The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to start up.

Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

If the problem stays on that side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black covers.

If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

You need to replace your IAC (idle air control valve). The IAC, like it sounds, control the idle of your car. When they go bad they will cause the low idle and stalling. The IAC is located on the throttle body and is usually held on with a couple of screws. It is an easy relatively cheap fix that you can take care of by yourself. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Does low oil indicator come on when oil is low in 96 tl. i checked but oil was below min mark and sounds and runs fine before i checked it. is there a problem?


Could be. It wouldn't be a bad idea to have it checked further. Could have bad main bearings. They are more responsible for oil pressure than even an oil pump.

RPM shot up to 4.5/5 while idling


I have a 2003 Acura TLS, bought new Oct 2002 currently with only 42600 KM (real low) My problem appears to be the same. I noticed specificly on warm days after 30 min driving, when coming to a stop, the idle was about 3500 RPM. Parked the car, turned it off. When starting up again, RPM stayed at 3200, also couldn't put into drive (possibly safety mechanism to prevent damage to transmission). After 30 min when cooled, was able to start again - OK.
I brought it to the dealer thinking possibly connected to FAULTY TRANSMISSION". There was a special extended warranty issued by ACURA >>> http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/09-int/2003/acura/tl/index.html I believe it also includes 2002's. Your Dealer should check into it again.
My dealer, ACURA LAVAL (in Que, Canada) seemed to look at nothing else than the transmission. In fact, 2 days after not hearing from him, he told me that they had already ordered a NEW Transmission which is being put in as I write.

Hope this is helpful to any Owner/Dealer who reads this

Best Wishes from the Great White North- Canada

1999 Acura 3.2 TL has 87,000 miles changed spark plugs but starting RPM still low about 500; sometimes it takes two starts using gas pedal. Can you adjust Idle or does it need timing adjusted.
