Customer Question

1999 Acura TL when it gets heated after driving a distance, & I make a stop for 30 mins. I start it up again & it seems like it's going to die, so I press the gas until it feels like it won't die out then I continue in my way

114783, had the trans done, no check engine light on,haven't scanned for codes,coolant level good,not sure about thermo, temp good

i would check thermostat and water pump,

if you are adding coolant to it , than you have to check for blown head gasket

you can run a test on that and see.

i doubt at the 114k, unless you rant hot, and it went in the red and drove on it .

Most possible reasons

1- thermostat

2- water pump

3- radiator check for good flow

4- make sure the coolant fans si not turning off intermittently

Please let me know if you need anything else on this issue

Hope I was Helpful to you

A Positive Rating is Much Appreciated

This Post will stay open for you to come back and ask me any follow up questions you may have on this issue even after you rate me
