I am new not only to this Forum but also to CLs. I've owned this 1997 Acura CL 3.0 for a couple of months now. I started by cleaning it out, then I removed the wing, badges, replaced the Valve cover gaskets, coolant resevoir, replaced the batter and terminals, changed spark plugs, oil change, wires distributor, I lowered it, new wheels and all. It always had a bad idle, but recently it has gotten alot worse. The idle is really low, it sputters at red lights and stop signs almost like it wants to stall, Its been having trouble starting, sometimes it wont even start and every once in a while when it starts up plumes of white smoke flow out of the exhaust for a good 10-15 minutes. Does anyone have any advice on what this could possibly be?:paranoid:

Sounds like potentially a head gasket issue, but check your coolant and oil levels to see if they're out of the norm. Any check engine lights?

Yes there is a light but its reading for multiple random misfires and I was suggested to change oil, spark plugs, wires and distributor because that would help stop the misfires but it still continues to happen.

I assume you've cleared the codes since. What are the exact codes you're getting now?
