I have owned 3 Tls.

The first Acura TL I bought had 280k, 97 3.2P . My second was a 2002 TL, I was in a horrific car accident with a semi. I lived but the car was totaled, they cut me out with the Jaws of Life. I just purchased a 99 tl for 400$. HAD alot of problems. Windows and guages didn't work. Whole car would shake taking off from a light, no power. Transmission would nearly fall out when it was shifted from park to reverse. 400$ Put in a fuse to fix windows and gauges. Transmission was overfilled and fluid had not been changed since the car was new. Engine problems for misfires on three different cylinders. New spark plugs and ignition coils and now the thing purrs like a kitten.

Intake resonator.

I'm seriously considering removing my stock intake resonator just to see what it sounds like. Nothing permanent, but I've seen some really great DIY ideas for removing intake resonator.

Line through my post. Sorry newbie.

New to the site sorry about the line... I am really amazed at how much information and knowledge you can find on this site. I've been an Acura fanatic for years but never joined. Thanks to all for sharing info.

150,150 Clocked on TL-P (AV6)



2002 TL-P with 150,150 miles on the clock. J-series FTW.
I hit the satisfyingly symmetrical mileage 150,150 when I pulled into my garage tonight. Tranny shit the bed about four weeks ago, got an AV6 with 103k installed about two weeks ago, loving having neither a shitty car nor a car note.

My TL has about 90k. I just replaced the transmission about 5k ago. The car drives great. My only problem is that the paint is starting to really show its age. I wish there were a way to repaint without a lot of money (fool hardy, I know).

I'm at 204K right now. There are a few issues that I've been experiencing so I'll either spend a lot of time here researching it or sell it and get something else.

Update...

222K miles originally bought at 180K with a blue-bolt trans which was replaced with an AV6 unit at around 208K. It's starting to nickle and dime me on minor pieces & parts but no major faults. It's never been out of service outside of the trans swap.

Hey Ruet, what do the blue-bolt markings signify? The guy I bought the car from said it had something to do with being re-manufactured, but he was a tad odd so I'm not sure about believing him.

Just do it. I did the same 5 years ago. Not that much difference unless you're a lead foot.
