Customer Question
Hi: Starts and run like...
Hi: Starts and run like a champ, then stalls. Suddenly. Hard to get going. Then, will start and stall. Shop says it started after they sprayed carb cleaner. Says "everything points to fuel pump". He cannot measure pressure. Sound like a fuel pump?
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: No Check Engine light. No, stalls only when running--well--almost each time when running happily and smoothly along--then stall.
JA: What is the model/year of your Acura?
Customer: Sorry. 2002 Acura 3.2TL 225K. Love the car. First time ever I have needed a tow of had a stall.
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Cannot becuase it stalled right near my mechanic. So, not fixing my self. Battery check OK and charges fine, it seems. 12.4 and 14.6V.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: What does 'connect' me mean? It was inspected 2 weeks ago. No issues. Had a coil replaced 1 month ago.

Mechanic for Acura: david craig, Acura Mechanic replied 1 month ago

another issue on these are clogged or partially clogged fuel injectors. I've seen it countless time. Alao it probably time for a valve adjustment.

He does not get fuel pressure he said. Can we speak by phone? (###) ###-####
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Too expensive to speak. Do the symptom jibe with fuel pump problem? What kind of data should I ask for to ensure it is actually the fuel pump?
Mechanic for Acura: david craig, Acura Mechanic replied 1 month ago

you need to request a phone cal through the site. not allowed to make personal calls.

if he doesn't get fuel pressure then you have a clogged filter or bad pump, can you hear the pump running for a few seconds when the key is turned on?

well, if you could just tell me how to verify the mechanic did a good dignosis that might do it for me.I was getting 23 mpg in mixed driving and ~28 mpg on highway. Runs perfectly. How mch is a valve adjust?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Not sure. I do know that battery boosting had no impact. starts up okay. stalls after about 10 minutes. I wait 10 minutes it starts stalls about 10 minutes later and so forth
Mechanic for Acura: david craig, Acura Mechanic replied 1 month ago

ok, if its starting the the fuel pump is working and there's fuel pressure. but you need to know if the fuel pressure is at spec. a valve adjustment takes about 2 hours. I would have it looked at by another mechanic if this guy cant read fuel pressure.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
