My acura

#1

I have a 2003 tl , it runs great except for an occasional tug between gears, mostly second to third, anyone else have this problem and if so is it necessary to go to a transmission place to look at it or should I just turn the radio up?

#2

You know that automatic transmission fluid and filter change you were going to put off until you needed it? Well, this is it.

#3

Actually, these transmissions don’t have a user serviceable filter, the fluid is all you can change/maintain. It’s easy to do a fluid change: open the trans drain plug and ~3 of the 7.2 qts will drop out. Refill via the fill plug on top or the dipstick hole. Use Honda ATF-Z1 (or Amsoil ATF if you want synthetic).

Btw, what do you mean by an “occasional tug between gears”?

occasional tug between gears

should I just turn the radio up?

If I put those two together it would seem that it may be grinding between gears and that you may have a manual  transmission.  Is that true?  If so Hello and 65 were mislead by a lack of information.  I my guess is right, you may need to have the clutch checked out as well as the linkage and syncro hubs.

Actually, '99-'03 TL was only available with an auto.
