I am going to move your question out of the Toyota category and open it up to other experts .

I am not aware of any Acura 3.5 rl models if this is not corect please repost the correct model so an expert can help you.

Also you will NOT get a P0505 code in a 1988 acura

Turn the ignition switch OFF .
Remove the CLOCK RADIO (7.5 A) fuse from the under-hood fuse/relay box for 10 seconds.

NOTE: If the BACK UP RADIO (7.5 A) fuse is removed and the ignition switch ON (II), MIL will report on and PCM will store the DTC P0560.

DO YOU RECOMEND THAT I CHANGE THE THERMAL VALVE
Expert:  Randall (Cheeko) replied 6 years ago.
Hi, if you performed the flow chart test and it has led you to replace the valve which it sounds like it may have from the readings, then yes, then reset the pcm and drive and retest the system to verify the repair , thanks
