New 4th Gen Owner! 2012 SH-AWD w/ Tech (Pics)
Hi everyone! I am proud to say I recently purchased the 2012 Acura TL with the SH-AWD and tech. I used to own a 3rd gen TL, but decided it was time for an upgrade/something more modern. It was real hard to find the ebony on white with the tech and AWD in michigan, so I had to drive 250 miles...

How to check a transmission?
Hi friends I'm going to look at a 2002 TL next week and I'd like to know what I can do myself to check out the transmission? Check the oil, but what else? I asked the guy about the VIN number but havent heard from him yet. I will run that when I get it. All the best.
How to change trans. fluid with cooling line suction method
Hi all, From posting in a different thread, I would like to know how to do a transmission fluid swap using the suction and return lines of the 3g transmission as 3x3 doesn't get you to the 87%> mark of old fluid removal which is effectively doing the job 3/4 of the way, dirty oil wouldnt be...

Transmission draining 3x1, 3x3, 3x?
Hi all, I have been reading about the 3x1, 3x3, 3x? flushing of fluid. Why is there no way to drain off the old fluid from the converter? It seems like a monumentally bad design would be an understatement. To get to 97% you have to spend 300ish and drop it 9 times? This is seriously the only...

Intermittent VSA, !, abs lights on
Like the title stated, it doesn't stay on all the time. I could start the car with it on and after a while driving they'll turn off. Then later they'll come back on.
