HELP! 99 TL completely shuts down while driving!!!
Hi...just found this site. Great info!!! Need some major help.
I have a 99 TL with 75,000 miles and up until now no major problems. But a couple weeks ago the car the completely shut down on me while coming to a stop at a light. The car immediately started back up. However, the problem continued to occur a couple times a days. Again, starting right back up with no problems. It has even shut down while going 70mph on the highway. Not a good feeling.
I have taken it into a AAA approved mechanic twice now and the problem persists. The first time they changed out the Idle Control Valve (an Acura dealer suggested this would solve the problem). That didn't work. Next they changed the Fuel Pump Relay. That didn't work. I am now driving around with dread!
Help!!! Are there any suggestions out there what could be causing this? My mechanic seems to be at a loss. I hate to keep throwing $$ into this 10yo car and it might make sense at this point to sell what I can get for it and call it a day.
THANK YOU for any thoughts!...
