About Acura CL
Acura CL (Contemporary Luxury) is a mid-size coupé manufactured by the Acura division of Honda from 1997 to 1999 and from 2001 to 2003. The first Acura CL was introduced for the 1997 model year and designed based on the fist-generation Acura TL. It was the first Acura that built in the United States. Although the CL was considered to be a satisfactory vehicle, it did not gain popularity like the other Acura coupés. It had been through two generations.
The first generation Acura CL (1997-1999) was produced as a 1997 model. It offered base and premium trim levels. Available engines included 3.0 L 200 hp J30A1 V6, 2.2 L 145 hp F22B1 inline 4-cylinder and 2.3 L 150 hp F23A1 inline 4-cyliner engines. And engines were attached to a 4-speed automatic transmission and a 5-speed manual transmission. Then in March 2000, a complete redesigned Acura CL was launched as a 2001 model, which marked the beginning of the second generation (2001-2003). It then was available in Premium, Sport and Type-S in Navigation system. It was powered by a 3.2 L SOHC VTEC J-series V6 engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission (only for 2003).
Acura CL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Just like other cars, Acura CL has an expired date. In order to put off the day to come, we have provided some common problems and solutions for Acura CL owners:
First, engine performance reduced. The most obvious sign of this problem is the illuminated Check Engine Light and audible metallic sound. Other symptoms included dirt, grime and carbon deposit on the inside of the housing and a very poor or high idle. What's more, rattling noises from the front of the engine as well as retarded ignition timing and engine misfires as well as oil leaking are common. If any above signs appear on your Acura CL, you had better check the throttle body gasket, oxygen sensor and timing belt.
Second, cooling system problem. Actually, this problem is still related to the engine. In general, Acura CL drivers have to refill coolant constantly as coolant leaks at the front-center of the car. Steam would come from the radiator, engine being overheating and the water pump pulley being loose. Under these situations, water pump and radiator are auto parts that must be checked.
I assume every Acura CL owner would like to show it to others. Then you must get a shining emblem to let others know which brand. What's more, excellently operated wiper arm and cabin air filter are also auto parts that people would car as they play important part in proving safe and comfortable driving environment.
