Hi, I'm new here and am looking for answers on why my 2000 Acura TL has starting issues. A little background: Last summer, only when the temperature was around 90 degrees or higher, my car had a problem starting. Mechanic thought it was the cylinders. no. During the winter, no issues at all. Again this summer, same thing. Turn the key, crank...won't start. Outside temperature reading is reading abnormally high such as 110 degrees when I know it's only 90 degrees. Wait ten minutes with hood up, heater turned on (not really ON because the car won't start.) Outside temp gauge drops to 102 degrees, car starts but is sluggish and sounds 'flooded'. Once I get the car in gear and start driving, with the heater turned on high, outside temp drops on the gauge and car runs fine. I think it has something to do with outside temperature gauge because once that drops, it runs as it should. Any suggestions as to what is causing the problem?
