1.- i do have a problem with misfire and i dont know which cylinder is
2.- i have to replace the o2 sensor and it says it is from cylinder one so is that on the left side or right side bank1 sensor 1
thank you
Do you know the code that is turning the light on? post it back and I can tell you what sensor it is. Also be sure to use an Acura sensor the after market sensors wont work on this engine.

i think it was P0132 but what i remember it did said bank1 sensor 1.

the other code i dont remeber but it only said misfire, how can i make sure all my coils are working right?

disconnect the coils one at a time and listen to the engine it will slow down the same on each coil .If one sounds less or not at all thats your bad one. the coils dont go out often on these. check the spark plugs CLICK HERE and CLICK HERE for your locations and firing order. If this car has under 150,000 miles this is covered under warranty.

Ok now i have another problem, winter is coming but is already cold in the morning so today i turn my heat on and nothing just cold air but if i push the gas then hot air coming out but if i stop then cold air again, whats wrong any ideas?
check the water level in the radidator. This could be a sign of a leaking head gasket as well. if it is low see if you can find a leak somewhere if it has no leaks you may have a leaking head gasket.

hard to do that but anyways i just bought a set of stock rims and tires(235/45/170) from a 2004 tl is this perfect fit or i will have problems.
I'm pretty sure they will fit ,They are wider than the stock tires and you may need to bend the lip on the rear fenders to keep them from rubbing. I have done this on 99 tl's but not on the 96-98 model.

so should i go with smaller tires like 225/45/17 would that work or i still have to bend the lip on the rear fender? thank you
225 would fit better. that would be a better way to go.
