2001 Acura CL 3.2 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)


I have had my 2001 3.2 CL since 2004. That's right she's 11 years old and has been so good to me as I have been to her. Last week I had an interesting experience that I've never had before. She putted 3 times while in traffic and just died. It wasn't the battery and 30 minutes later she started up and the problem has not reocurred. She has been with mechanic for approximately a week and they can't find anything wrong. Mechanic has been driving her to and from work to see what happens.
If mechanic can not find the issue, I may have to consider replacing her, I drive too often and late at night and am afraid of getting stranded or worse. Up to this point she has been reliable. I love her but

most likely is the efi relay i.e. fuel pump and fuel system hondas are know for this. My brother inlaw's old integra was so bad about it he had 3 or 4 he would swap out in the summer. It's a $40 part. it's to the back left of the steering column under the dash.

I recently experienced the same problem and the dealership had it for two weeks and couldn't get it to mimic the same problem your describing but the mechanic with my explanation said it sounded like the fuel switch so I said to go a head and replace it. and that was the problem! 2 months later and still running like it was brand new!!
