1998 Acura RL Repair Question
1998 Acura RL Engine hesitation acceleration
1998 Acura RL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 127000 miles
Hi everyone, I hope someone can help. My 98 RL hesitates and stutters when accelerating from a dead stop. This just started a few weeks a ago and my mechanic has not been able to help. I had the air filter changed, new spark plugs installed, and oil changed. The check engine light has not turned on. The hesitation only occurs when I accelerate with my than half throttle. If I just ease the throttle, it accelerates fine. Could someone please assist?
Lack of acceleration,chugging,hesitating,bogging etc. could be caused by one of the following below:
Possibilities: Inspect and test all the following listed below:
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
False air leakage.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.
Note:If it doesn't apply disregard it.
