Get a list of the actual codes car is throwing, describe in as much detail any other symptoms you're experiencing, and the folks here can do their best to give you that 2nd opinion.

Go to auto-zone, get pictures of the codes it’s throwing they’ll read them for free, and post the pictures up.

mechanics call turbos a lot for the turbo code, which may be caused by slack in the waste-gate actuator, not knowing it is replaceable, or even adjustable. ive seen the code go away from just moving the nut on the arm a few turns until the slack is out.

Your mechanic is an idiot !

Do you have any transmission slipping? Besides the check engine light being on? If you have slipping, flush out the transmission fluid, and refill. There is a refill bolt to remove and refill. Do not refill it from the dipstick. Or it will take you an hour. Replace the 3 transmission pressure switches. Then disconnect the negative side of the battery for 5 minutes. This will clear all the old codes. The car should be fine then. I would disconnect the negative battery terminal first. After 5 min, put it back on, start and drive. If no light comes back, it was an old code. Of it comes back on and you have trans slipping, follow the directions above. Make sure you only use Acura trans fluid. From the dealer. Acura are very sensitive to other trans fluids.
