car is sputtering and running hot

Asked by Jun 04, 2013 at 03:53 PM about the Acura TSX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

...I'd first put a brand new thermostat in...top off the coolant level on the reservoir tank to "full cold"---and see if she's still overheating...your ECU needs good information such as ambient air temperature, coolant temperature and air flow and O2 to see how's it doin'~ see we really cannot move on these parts replacements until someone undoes the "diagnostic" plug and hook a scanner to it...please report~
