Maintaining your vehicle according to the schedules given in this manual helps to keep your driving trouble-free while it preserves your investment... When your vehicle needs maintenance, keep in mind that your Acura dealers staff is specially trained in servicing the many systems unique to your Acura... Your Acura dealer is dedicated to your satisfaction and will be pleased to answer any questions and concerns...

Page 4

To help you make informed decisions about safety, we have provided operating procedures and other information on labels and in this manual... This information alerts you to potential hazards that could hurt you or others...

Page 8

This section gives you important information about how to protect yourself and your passengers... It shows you how to use seat belts properly... It explains how your airbags work... And it tells you how to properly restrain infants and children in your vehicle...

Page 9

A seat belt is your best protection in all types of collisions... Airbags supplement seat belts, but airbags are designed to inflate only in a moderate to severe frontal collision... So even though your vehicle is equipped with airbags, make sure you and your passengers always wear your seat belts, and wear them properly... (See page ... )

Page 10

Some safety features do not require any action on your part... These include a strong steel framework that forms a safety cage around the passenger compartment; front and rear crash zones, a collapsible steering column, and seat belt tensioners that tighten the front seat belts in the event of a crash...

Page 11

However, you and your passengers cant take full advantage of these safety features unless you remain sitting in a proper position and always wear your seat belts properly... In fact, some safety features can contribute to injuries if they are not used properly...

Page 12

Help keep you in a good position should the airbags ever deploy... A good position reduces the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, and allows you to get the best advantage from the airbag...

Page 13

Always wear your seat belt properly, and sit upright, and as far back from the steering wheel as possible while allowing full control of the vehicle... A front passenger should move their seat as far back from the dashboard as possible...

Page 14

The following pages provide instructions on how to properly protect the driver, adult passengers, and teenagers who are large enough and mature enough to ride in the front... See pages for important guidelines on how to properly protect infants, small children, and larger children who ride in your vehicle...

Page 15

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada recommend that drivers allow at least 10 inches (25 cm) between the center of the steering wheel and the chest...

Page 16

Reclining a seat-back so that the shoulder part of the belt no longer rests against the occupants chest reduces the protective capability of the belt... It also increases the chance of sliding under the belt in a crash and being seriously injured... The farther a seat-back is reclined, the greater the risk of injury...

Page 17

Position the lap part of the belt as low as possible across your hips, then pull up on the shoulder part of the belt so the lap part fits snugly... This lets your strong pelvic bones take the force of a crash and reduces the chance of internal injuries...

Page 18

Adjust the steering wheel, if needed, so that the wheel points toward your chest, not toward your face... This provides optimal protection from the front airbag...

Page 19

In addition, an occupant who is out of position in the front seat can be seriously or fatally injured in a crash by striking interior parts of the vehicle or being struck by an inflating front airbag... Being struck by an inflating side airbag can possibly result in serious injuries...

Page 20

When driving, remember to sit upright and adjust the seat as far back as possible while allowing full control of the vehicle... When riding as a front passenger, adjust the seat as far back as possible... This will reduce the risk of injuries to both you and your unborn child that can be caused by a crash or an inflating front airbag...

Page 21

Objects on the covers marked SRS AIRBAG could interfere with the proper operation of the airbags... Or, if the airbags inflate, the objects could be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone...

Page 22

All seat belts have an emergency locking retractor... In normal driving, the retractor lets you move freely in your seat while it keeps some tension on the belt... During a collision or sudden stop, the retractor automatically locks the belt to help restrain your body...

Page 23

For added protection, the front seat belts are equipped with automatic seat belt tensioners... When activated, the tensioners immediately tighten the belts to help hold the driver and a front passenger in place...

Page 24

If a seat belt is worn during a crash, it must be replaced by the dealer... A belt that has been worn during a crash may not provide the same level of protection in a subsequent crash... The dealer should also inspect the anchors for damage and replace them if needed... If the automatic seat belt tensioners activate during a crash, they must be replaced...

Page 25

If you ever have a moderate to severe frontal collision, sensors will detect the vehicles rapid deceleration... If the rate of deceleration is high enough, the control unit will instantly inflate the drivers and front passengers front airbags, at the time and with the force needed...

Page 26

After a crash, you may see what looks like smoke... This is actually powder from the airbags surface... Although the powder is not harmful, people with respiratory problems may experience some temporary discomfort... If this occurs, get out of the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so...

Page 27

Your front airbags are also dual- threshold airbags... Airbags with this feature have two deployment thresholds that depend on whether or not the occupant is wearing a seat belt...

Page 28

When you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), the indicator should come on briefly and go out (see page )... If it doesnt come on, stays on, or comes on while driving without a passenger in the front seat, have the system checked...

Page 29

When you turn the ignition to ON (II), this indicator will come on briefly then go out... This tells you that the system is working properly...

Page 30

Although Acura does not encourage children to ride in front, this system is designed to shut off the side airbag if a child leans sideways and the childs head is in the side airbag deployment path...

Page 31

Any airbag that has deployed must be replaced along with the control unit... If a front airbag inflates, the seat belt tensioners must also be replaced... Do not try to remove or replace any airbag by yourself... This must be done by an Acura dealer or a knowledgeable body shop...

Page 32

If you have children, or if you ever need to drive with a child in your vehicle, be sure to read this section... It begins with important general guidelines, then presents special information for infants, small children, and larger children...

Page 33

According to accident statistics, children of all ages and sizes are safer when they are restrained in the back seat... The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada recommend that all children age 12 and under be properly restrained in the back seat...

Page 34

To remind you of the passengers front airbag hazards, and that children must be properly restrained in the back seat, your vehicle has warning labels on the dashboard and on the drivers and front passengers visors... Please read and follow the instructions on these labels...

Page 35

Do not leave children alone in a vehicle... Leaving children without adult supervision is illegal in most states and Canadian provinces, and can be very hazardous... For example, infants and small children left in a vehicle on a hot day can die from heatstroke... A child left alone with the key in the ignition can accidentally set the vehicle in motion, possibly injuring themselves or others...

Page 36

Keep vehicle keys and remote transmitters out of reach of children... Even very young children learn how to unlock vehicle doors, turn on the ignition, and open the hatch, which can lead to accidental injury or death...

Page 37

When properly installed, a rear- facing child seat may prevent the driver or a front passenger from moving the seat as far back as recommended, or from locking the seat-back in the desired position... In either of these situations, we strongly recommend that you install the child seat directly behind the front passenger seat, move the front seat as far forward as needed, and leave it unoccupied... Or you may wish to get a smaller child seat that allows you to safely carry a front passenger...

Page 38

If it is necessary to put a forward- facing child seat in the front, move the vehicle seat as far to the rear as possible, be sure the child seat is firmly secured to the vehicle, and the child is properly strapped in the seat...

Page 39

All child seats must be secured to the vehicle with the lap part of a lap/shoulder belt or with the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system... A child whose seat is not properly secured to the vehicle can be endangered in a crash...

Page 40

Your vehicle is equipped with LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) at the rear seats... The lower anchors are located between the seat-back and seat bottom, and are to be used only with a child seat designed for use with LATCH...

Page 41

Place the child seat on the vehicle seat, and attach the seat to the lower anchors according to the child seat makers instructions...

Page 42

After the belt has retracted, tug on it... If the belt is locked, you will not be able to pull it out... If you can pull the belt out, it is not locked, and you will need to repeat these steps...

Page 43

After confirming that the belt is locked, grab the shoulder part of the belt near the buckle and pull up to remove any slack from the lap part of the belt... Remember, if the lap part of the belt is not tight, the child seat will not be secure...

Page 44

When a child reaches the recommended weight or height limit for a forward-facing child seat, the child should sit in a back seat on a booster and wear a lap/shoulder belt... The following pages give instructions on how to check proper seat belt fit, what kind of booster seat to use if one is needed, and important precautions for a child who must sit in front...

Page 45

If you answer yes to all these questions, the child is ready to wear the lap/shoulder belt correctly... If you answer no to any question, the child needs to ride on a booster seat... A child who has outgrown a forward-

Page 46

If the passengers front airbag inflates in a moderate to severe frontal collision, the airbag can cause serious injuries to a child who is unrestrained, improperly restrained, sitting too close to the airbag, or out of position...

Page 47

Devices intended to improve a childs comfort or reposition the shoulder part of a seat belt can make the belt less effective, and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash...

Page 48

High levels of carbon monoxide can collect rapidly in enclosed areas, such as a garage... Do not run the engine with the garage door closed... Even with the door open, run the engine only long enough to move the vehicle out of the garage...

Page 49

These labels are in the locations shown... They warn you of potential hazards that could cause serious injury... Read these labels carefully...

This indicator comes on when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II)... If it comes on at any other time, it indicates a potential problem with your front airbags... This indicator will also alert you to a potential problem with your side airbags, passengers side airbag automatic cutoff system, or automatic seat belt tensioners... For more information, see page ...

Page 54

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II), and when the ignition switch is turned to START (III)... If it comes on at any other time, there is a problem in the ABS... If this happens, take your vehicle to a dealer to have it checked... With this indicator on, your vehicle still has normal braking ability but no anti-lock... For more information, see page ...

Page 55

The left or right turn signal indicator blinks when you signal a lane change or turn... If the indicator does not blink or blinks rapidly, it usually means one of the turn signal bulbs is burned out (see page )... Replace the bulb as soon as possible, since other drivers cannot see that you are signaling...

Page 56

This indicator comes on when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II) with the headlight switch off and the parking brake set... It should go off if you turn on the headlights or release the parking brake... If it comes on at any other time, it means there is a problem with the DRL... There may also be a problem with the high beam headlights...

Page 57

Between 8,000 miles (12,800 km) and 10,000 miles (16,000 km), it will come on for two seconds when you first turn the ignition switch to ON (II), and then flash for 10 seconds...

Page 58

S... federal law and Canadian provincial regulations to disconnect, reset, or alter the odometer with the intent to change the number of miles or kilometers indicated...

Page 60

This shows the temperature of the engines coolant... During normal operation, the pointer should rise from the bottom white mark to about the middle of the gauge... In severe driving conditions, such as very hot weather or a long period of uphill driving, the pointer may rise to near the upper white mark... If it reaches the red (Hot) mark, pull safely to the side of the road... Turn to page for instructions and precautions on checking the engines cooling system...

Page 64

The rear window defogger will clear fog, frost, and thin ice from the window... Push the defogger button to turn it on and off... The indicator in the button comes on to show the defogger is on... If you do not turn it off, the defogger will shut itself off after about 25 minutes... It also shuts off when you turn off the ignition... You have to turn it on again when you restart the vehicle...

Page 65

Adjusting the steering wheel position while driving may cause you to lose control of the vehicle and be seriously injured in a crash...

A radio stations signal gets weaker as you get farther away from its transmitter... If you are listening to an AM station, you will notice the sound volume becoming weaker, and the station drifting in and out... If you are listening to an FM station, you will see the stereo indicator flickering off and on as the signal weakens... Eventually, the stereo indicator will go off and the sound will fade completely as you get out of range of the stations signal...

Page 100

Radio signals, especially on the FM band, are deflected by large objects such as buildings and hills... Your radio then receives both the direct signal from the stations transmitter, and the deflected signal... This causes the sound to distort or flutter... This is a main cause of poor radio reception in city driving...

The build-up of snow or mud on your vehicles underside adds weight and rolling resistance... Frequent cleaning helps your fuel mileage and reduces the chance of corrosion...

Page 130

When properly installed, cellular phones, alarms, two-way radios, and low-powered audio systems should not interfere with your vehicles computer controlled systems, such as the SRS and anti-lock brake system...

Page 131

Some examples are: Lowering your vehicle with an aftermarket suspension kit that significantly reduces ground clearance can allow the undercarriage to hit speed bumps or other raised objects, which could cause the airbags to deploy...

Page 132

However, carrying too much cargo, or improperly storing it, can affect your vehicles handling, stability, stopping distance, and tires, making it unsafe... Before carrying any type of cargo, be sure to read the following pages...

Page 133

For example, if there will be four 150 lbs (70 kg) occupants in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 100 lbs (45 kg)... 4 150 lbs (70 kg) = 600 lbs (280 kg) 700 lbs (325 kg) 600 lbs (280 kg) = 100 lbs (45 kg)

Page 134

If you can carry any items on a roof rack, be sure the total weight of the rack and the items does not exceed the maximum allowable weight... Please contact your Acura dealer for further information...

Page 136

This section gives you tips on starting the engine under various conditions, and how to operate the 5-speed and 6-speed manual transmissions and automatic transmission... It also includes important information on parking your vehicle, the braking system, and facts you need if you are planning to tow a trailer...

Page 137

Make sure all windows, mirrors, and outside lights are clean and unobstructed... Remove frost, snow, or ice...

Page 138

If the engine does not start within 15 seconds, or starts but stalls right away, repeat step 4 with the accelerator pedal pressed halfway down... If the engine starts, release pressure on the accelerator pedal so the engine does not race...

Page 139

The manual transmission is syn- chronized in all forward gears for smooth operation... It has a lockout so you cannot shift directly from Fifth to Reverse... When shifting up or down, make sure you push the clutch pedal down all the way, shift to the next gear, and let the pedal up gradually... When you are not shifting, do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal... This can cause your clutch to wear out faster...

If you exceed the maximum speed for the gear you are in, the engine speed will enter into the tachometers red zone... If this occurs, you may feel the engine cut in and out... This is caused by a limiter in the engines computer controls... The engine will run normally when you reduce the RPM below the red zone...

Page 141

The 6-speed manual transmission has an electric lockout so you cannot accidentally shift from Fifth to Reverse instead of Sixth... If you cannot shift to Reverse when the vehicle is stopped:

Page 142

These indicators on the instrument panel show which position the shift lever is in... The D indicator comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II)... If it flashes at any time (in any shift position), it indicates a possible problem in the transmission... Avoid rapid acceleration, and have the transmission checked by an Acura dealer as soon as possible...

Page 143

This position is simi- lar to D, except only the first three gears are selected... Use D when towing a trailer in hilly terrain, or to provide engine braking when going down a steep hill... D can also keep the transmission from cycling third, fourth and fifth gears in stop-and-go driving...

Page 144

In Sequential SportShift mode, each time you push forward on the shift lever, the transmission will shift to a higher gear... Pull back on the lever to downshift... The number of the gear selected is displayed on the instrument panel (see page )...

Page 145

If you try to manually downshift at a speed that would cause the engine to exceed the redline in a lower gear, the transmission will not downshift... The gear indicator will flash the number of the lower gear several times, then return to the higher gear...

Page 146

If you exceed the maximum speed for the gear you are in, the engine speed will enter into the tachometers red zone... If this occurs, you may feel the engine cut in and out... This is caused by a limiter in the engines computer controls... The engine will run normally when you reduce the rpm below the red zone...

Page 147

Put a cloth on the edge of the Shift Lock Release slot cover next to the shift lever... Using a small flat- tipped screwdriver or a metal fingernail file, carefully pry on the edge of the cover...

Page 148

Set the parking brake before you put the transmission in Park... This keeps the vehicle from moving and putting pressure on the parking mechanism in the transmission...

Page 149

If the brake pads need replacing, you will hear a distinctive, metallic screeching sound when you apply the brake pedal... If you do not have the brake pads replaced, they will screech all the time... It is normal for the brakes to occasionally squeal or squeak when you apply them...

Page 150

You will feel a pulsation in the brake pedal when the ABS activates, and you may hear some noise... This is normal: it is the ABS rapidly pumping the brakes... On dry pavement, you will need to press on the brake pedal very hard before the ABS activates... However, you may feel the ABS activate immediately if you are trying to stop on snow or ice...

Page 151

on loose or uneven surfaces, such as gravel or snow, than a vehicle without anti- lock... Slow down and allow a greater distance between vehicles under those conditions...

Page 152

The weight that the tongue of a fully-loaded trailer puts on the hitch should be approximately 10 percent of the trailer weight... Too little tongue load can make the trailer unstable and cause it to sway... Too much tongue load reduces front-tire traction and steering control...

Page 153

To achieve a proper tongue load, start by loading 60 percent of the load toward the front of the trailer and 40 percent toward the rear, then re-adjust the load as needed...

Page 154

Always use safety chains... Make sure they are secured to both the trailer and hitch, and that they cross under the tongue so they can catch the trailer if it becomes unhitched... Leave enough slack to allow the trailer to turn corners easily, but do not let chains drag on the ground...

Page 155

If you choose electric brakes, be sure they are electrically actuated... Do not attempt to tap into your vehicles hydraulic system... No matter how successful it may seem, any attempt to attach trailer brakes to your vehicles hydraulic system will lower braking effectiveness and create a potential hazard... If you use a converter, you can get

Page 156

Drive slower than normal in all driving situations, and obey posted speed limits for vehicles with trailers... If you have an automatic transmission, use D position when towing a trailer on level roads... D is the proper shift lever position to use when towing a trailer in hilly terrain... (See in the next column for additional gear information... )

Page 157

Crosswinds and air turbulence caused by passing trucks can disrupt your steering and cause trailer swaying... When being passed by a large vehicle, keep a constant speed and steer straight ahead... Do not try to make quick steering or braking corrections...

Page 158

If you have the skills and tools to per- form more complex maintenance tasks on your Acura, you may want to purchase the Service Manual... See page for information on how to obtain a copy, or see your Acura dealer...

Page 159

Some of the most important safety precautions are given here... However, we cannot warn you of every conceivable hazard that can arise in performing maintenance... Only you can decide whether or not you should perform a given task...

Page 160

Avoid exceeding your vehicles load limit... This puts excess stress on the engine, brakes, and many other vehicle parts... The load limit is shown on the tire information label on the drivers doorjamb...

Page 161

Your authorized Acura dealer knows your vehicle best and can provide competent, efficient service... However, service at a dealer is not mandatory to keep your warranties in effect... Maintenance may be done by any qualified service facility or skilled person to keep your warranty in effect... Keep all the receipts as proof of completion, and have the person who does the work fill out the Maintenance Record... Check your warranty booklet for more information...

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID DIPSTICK (Yellow loop)

Page 167

To add oil, unscrew and remove the engine oil fill cap on top of the valve cover... Pour in the oil slowly and carefully so you do not spill... Clean up any spills immediately... Spilled oil could damage components in the engine compartment... Install the engine oil fill cap and tighten it securely... Wait a few minutes and recheck the oil level... Do not fill above the upper mark on the dipstick; you could damage the engine...

Page 168

Changing the oil and filter requires special tools and access from underneath the vehicle... The vehicle should be raised on a service station- type hydraulic lift for this service... Unless you have the knowledge and proper equipment, you should have this maintenance done by a skilled mechanic...

Page 169

Open the hood and remove the engine oil fill cap... Remove the oil drain bolt and washer from the bottom of the engine... Drain the oil into an appropriate container...

Page 170

Fill the reservoir with a good-quality windshield washer fluid... This increases the cleaning capability and prevents freezing in cold weather... When you refill the reservoir, clean the edges of the windshield wiper blades with windshield washer fluid on a clean cloth... This will help to condition them...

Page 171

If Honda antifreeze/coolant is not available, you may use another major-brand non-silicate coolant as a temporary replacement... Make sure it is a high-quality coolant recommended for aluminum engines... Continued use of any non-Honda coolant can result in corrosion, causing the cooling system to malfunction or fail... Have the cooling system flushed and refilled with Honda antifreeze/coolant as soon as possible...

Page 172

The coolant level should be up to the base of the filler neck... Add coolant if it is low... Pour the coolant slowly and carefully so you do not spill... Clean up any spills immediately; spilled coolant could damage components in the engine compartment...

Page 173

Check the fluid level with the transmission at normal operating temperature and the vehicle sitting on level ground... Remove the transmission filler bolt, and carefully feel inside the bolt hole with your finger... The fluid level should be up to the edge of the bolt hole... If it is not, add Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) until it starts to run out of the hole... Reinstall the filler bolt, and tighten it securely...

Page 174

Always use Honda Heavy Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3... If it is not available, you should use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid, from a sealed container, as a temporary replacement... However, the use of any non-Honda brake fluid can cause corrosion and decrease the life of the system... Have the brake system flushed and refilled with Honda Heavy Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3 as soon as possible...

Page 175

An auto-tensioner adjusts the tension of the drive belt... The indicator on the auto-tensioner should be in the proper range... It should be checked according to the time and distance recommendations in the maintenance schedule...

Page 176

Clean the hood latch assembly with a mild cleaner, then lubricate it with a multipurpose grease... Lubricate all the moving parts (as shown), including the pivot... Follow the time and distance recommendations in the Maintenance Schedule... If you are not sure how to clean and grease the latch, contact your Acura dealer...

Page 177

Your vehicle has two bulbs on each side, four in total... Make sure you are replacing the bulb that is burned out... Your vehicle uses halogen headlight bulbs... Handle a bulb by its plastic case and protect the glass from contact with your skin or hard objects... If you touch the glass, clean it with denatured alcohol and a clean cloth...

Page 178

If you need to change a headlight bulb on the drivers side, remove the bolt from the battery hold- down, and carefully push the battery toward the windshield to obtain enough working space...

Page 179

If you need to change a front turn signal bulb on the drivers side, remove the bolt from the battery hold-down, and carefully push the battery toward the windshield to obtain enough working space...

Page 180

(Drivers side) Place the battery in its original position, then install the bolt in the hold-down, and tighten it securely...

Page 181

Pull the bulb straight out of its socket... Push the new bulb straight into the socket until it bottoms...

Page 182

Determine which of the five bulbs is burned out: brake/taillight, turn signal light, side marker light, back-up light, or taillight...

Page 183

If your seat belts get dirty, use a soft brush with a mixture of mild soap and warm water to clean them... Do not use bleach, dye, or cleaning solvents... Let the belts air dry before you use the vehicle... Dirt build-up in the loops of the seat belt anchors can cause the belts to retract slowly... Wipe the insides of the loops with a clean cloth dampened in mild soap and warm water or isopropyl alcohol...

Page 184

Check the condition of the wiper blades at least every six months... Look for signs of cracking in the rubber, or areas that are getting hard... Replace the blades if you find these signs, or if they leave streaks and unwiped areas when used...

Page 185

Examine the new wiper blades... If they have no plastic or metal rein- forcement along the back edge, remove the metal reinforcement strips from the old wiper blade, and install them in the slots along the edge of the new blade...

Page 186

To safely operate your vehicle, your tires must be the proper type and size, in good condition with adequate tread, and correctly inflated...

Page 187

Use a gauge to measure the air pressure at least once a month... Even tires that are in good condition may lose one to two psi (10 to 20 kPa, 0... 1 to 0... 2 kgf/cm ) per month... Remember to check the spare tire at the same time...

Page 188

If you check the pressure when the tires are hot (driven for several miles), you will see readings 4 to 6 psi (30 to 40 kPa, 0... 3 to 0... 4 kgf/cm ) higher than the cold reading... This is normal; do not release air to match the cold pressure...

Page 189

Replace your tires with radial tires of the same size, load range, speed rating, and maximum cold tire pressure rating (as shown on the tires sidewall)... Mixing radial and bias-ply tires on your vehicle can reduce braking ability, traction, and steering accuracy... Using tires of a different size or construction can cause the ABS to work inconsistently...

Page 190

If you mount snow tires on your Acura, make sure they are radial tires of the same size and load range as original tires... Mount snow tires on all four wheels... The traction provided by snow tires on dry roads may be lower than your original tires... Check with the tire dealer for maximum speed recommendations...

Page 191

When installing chains, follow the manufacturers instructions and mount them as tightly as you can... Drive slowly with chains installed... If you hear them contacting the body or chassis, stop and investigate... Make sure the chains are installed tightly, and that they are not contacting the brake lines or suspension... Remove the chains as soon as you start driving on cleared roads...

Page 192

Check the terminals for corrosion (a white or yellowish powder)... To remove it, cover the terminals with a solution of baking soda and water... It will bubble up and turn brown... When this stops, wash it off with plain water... Dry off the battery with a cloth or paper towel... Coat the terminals with grease to help prevent further corrosion...

Page 193

If you store your vehicle for 12 months or longer, have your Acura dealer perform the inspections called for in the 24 months/30,000 miles (48,000 km) maintenance schedule (Normal Conditions) as soon as you take it out of storage (see page )... The replacements called for in the maintenance schedule are not needed unless the vehicle has actually reached that time or mileage...

Page 194

This section covers the more common problems that motorists experience with their vehicles... It gives you information about how to safely evaluate the problem and what to do to correct it... If the problem has stranded you on the side of the road, you may be able to get going again... If not, you will also find instructions on getting your vehicle towed...

Page 195

Replace the compact spare tire when you can see the tread wear indicator bars... The replacement should be the same size and design tire, mounted on the same wheel... The spare tire is not designed to be mounted on a regular wheel, and the spare wheel is not designed for mounting a regular tire...

Page 196

Park the vehicle on firm, level, and non-slippery ground... Put the transmission in Park (automatic) or Reverse (manual)... Apply the parking brake... If you are towing a trailer, unhitch the trailer...

Page 197

Lift the bass speaker out of the spare tire and set it aside... Do not pull on the wiring harness going to the speaker...

Page 198

Place the jack under the jacking point... Turn the end bracket clockwise until the top of the jack contacts the jacking point... Make sure the jacking point tab is resting in the jack notch...

Page 199

Put on the spare tire... Put the wheel nuts back on finger-tight, then tighten them in a crisscross pattern with the wheel wrench until the wheel is firmly against the hub... Do not try to tighten them fully...

Page 200

Store the jack in its holder... Turn the jacks end bracket clockwise to raise the jack and lock it in place...

Page 201

Check the transmission interlock... If you have a manual transmission, the clutch pedal must be pushed all the way to the floor or the starter will not operate... With an automatic transmission, it must be in Park or Neutral...

Page 202

Turn the ignition switch to START (III)... If the headlights do not dim, check the condition of the fuses... If the fuses are OK, there is probably something wrong with the electrical circuit for the ignition switch or starter motor... You will need a qualified technician to determine the problem (see on page )...

Page 203

Open the hood and check the physical condition of the battery... In very cold weather, check the condition of the electrolyte... If it seems slushy or like ice, do not try jump starting until it thaws...

Page 204

Connect the second jumper cable to the negative ( ) terminal on the booster battery... Connect the other end to the grounding strap as shown... Do not connect this jumper cable to any other part of the engine...

Page 205

If you do not see steam or spray, leave the engine running and watch the temperature gauge... If the high heat is due to overloading, the engine should start to cool down almost immediately... If it does, wait until the temperature gauge comes down to the midpoint, then continue driving...

Page 206

Start the engine, and set the temperature control lever to maximum... Add coolant to the radiator up to the base of the filler neck... If you do not have the proper coolant mixture available, you can add plain water... Remember to have the cooling system drained and refilled with the proper mixture as soon as you can...

Page 207

Start the engine, and watch the oil pressure indicator... If it does not go out within 10 seconds, turn off the engine... There is a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired before you can continue driving (see on page

Page 208

Immediately turn off all electrical accessories... Try not to use other electrically operated controls such as the power windows... Keep the engine running; starting the engine will discharge the battery rapidly...

Page 209

If you have recently refueled your vehicle, the cause of this indicator coming on could be a loose or missing fuel fill cap... Check the cap or replace it... Tightening the cap will not make the indicator turn off immediately; it takes at least three days of normal driving...

Page 210

To check if they are set, turn the ignition switch to ON (II), without starting the engine... The Malfunction Indicator Lamp will come on for 20 seconds... If it then goes off, the readiness codes are set... If it blinks five times, the readiness codes are not set... If possible, do not take your vehicle for a state emissions test until the readiness codes are set... See State Emissions Testing on pages

Page 211

However, if the brake pedal does not feel normal, you should take immediate action... A problem in one part of the systems dual circuit design will still give you braking at two wheels... You will feel the brake pedal go down much farther before the vehicle begins to slow down and you will have to press harder on the pedal...

Page 212

Try closing the moonroof... If the new fuse blows immediately or the moonroof motor still does not operate, you can close the moonroof manually...

Page 213

The vehicles fuses are located in two fuse boxes... The interior fuse box is underneath the steering column...

Page 214

and or the diagram on the fuse box lid, which fuses control that device... Check those fuses first, but check all the fuses before deciding that a blown fuse is the cause... Replace any blown fuses, and check if the device works...

Page 215

If you cannot drive your vehicle without fixing the problem, and you do not have a spare fuse, take a fuse of the same rating or a lower rating from one of the other circuits... Make sure you can do without that circuit temporarily (such as the cigarette lighter or radio)...

NOTICE: Improper towing preparation will damage the transmission... Follow the above procedure exactly... If you cannot shif t the transmission or start the engine (automatic transmission), your vehicle must be transported with the f ront wheels of f the ground...

Page 219

If you decide to tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground, make sure you use a properly- designed and attached tow bar... Prepare the vehicle for towing as described above, and leave the ignition switch in the Accessory (I) position so the steering wheel does not lock... Make sure the radio and any electrical accessories are turned off so they do not run down the battery...

Page 220

This section gives you the dimensions and capacities of your Acura, and the locations of the identification numbers... It also includes information you should know about your vehicles tires and emissions control systems...

Page 221

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-digit number your Acura dealer uses to register your vehicle for warranty purposes... It is also necessary for licensing and insuring your vehicle... The easiest place to find the VIN is on a plate fastened to the top of the dashboard... You can see it by looking through the windshield on the drivers side... It is also on the Certification label at- tached to the drivers doorjamb, and is stamped on the engine com- partment bulkhead... The VIN is also provided in bar code on the Certification label...

Page 225

The treadwear grade is a compara- tive rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course... For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one- half (1 1/2) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100... The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual condi- tions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences in road characteristics and climate...

Page 226

The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tires resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel... Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure... The grade C corresponds to a level of performance, which all passenger vehicle tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No... 109... Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law...

Page 227

Whenever tires are replaced, they should be replaced with tires of the same size... Following is an example of tire size with an explanation of what each component means...

Page 228

The burning of gasoline in your vehicles engine produces several by- products... Some of these are carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and hydrocarbons (HC)... Gasoline evaporating from the tank also produces hydrocarbons... Con- trolling the production of NOx, CO, and HC is important to the environ- ment... Under certain conditions of sunlight and climate, NOx and HC react to form photochemical smog... Carbon monoxide does not contri- bute to smog creation, but it is a poisonous gas...

Page 229

The exhaust emissions controls include three systems: PGM-FI, Ignition Timing Control, and Three Way Catalytic Converter... These three systems work together to control the engines combustion and minimize the amount of HC, CO, and NOx that comes out the tailpipe... The exhaust emissions control systems are separate from the crankcase and evaporative emissions control systems...

Page 230

The three way catalytic converter contains precious metals that serve as catalysts, promoting chemical reactions to convert the exhaust gasses without affecting the metals... The catalytic converter is referred to as a three-way catalyst, since it acts on HC, CO, and NOx... A replacement unit must be an original Acura part or its equivalent...

Page 231

If you take your vehicle for a state emissions test shortly after the battery has been disconnected or gone dead, it may not pass the test... This is because of certain readiness codes that must be set in the on- board diagnostics for the emissions systems... These codes are erased when the battery is disconnected, and set again only after several days of driving under a variety of conditions...

Page 232

Select a nearby lightly traveled major highway where you can maintain a speed of 50 to 60 mph (80 to 97 km/h) for at least 20 minutes... Drive on the highway in D (A/T) or 5th (M/T)... Do not use the cruise control... When traffic allows, drive for 90 seconds without moving the accelerator pedal... (Vehicle speed may vary slightly; this is okay... ) If you cannot do this for a continuous 90 seconds because of traffic conditions, drive for at least 30 seconds, then repeat it two more times (for a total of 90 seconds)...
