How do you change a Acura TL 3.7 TL?

This starter can be changed without disassembling the top of the engine on the 2.5 with automatic transmission. You will need a 10mm, 14 mm, 17mm, and a 9mm wrench. First with any electrical repair disconnect the battery at the negative terminal. The starter is on the driver's side close to the firewall below the intake manifold. Remove the transmission dip stick so you don't ruin it, then look and study the starter itself. You will notice the starter drive housing with a top and bottom bolt. The top bolt is a 14mm and the bottom a 17mm, loosen both a half turn. Remove the top 14mm bolt first, then the bottom 17mm, this will allow you to pull the starter out of the bell housing. With some angling and no brackets holding the back of the starter you should be able to pull it out enough to disconnect the positive wire and 9mm nut from the soleniod. Disconnect the starter ignition small wire by pulling it off it's connector. Now just pull it out of the engine and fender void and you've got it, saving about a hundred and fifty dollars of labor. Take it to the parts house and match it up with a well made remanufactured or new starter. Reverse the proceedure, hook up the battery and smile. Now take someone you love to dinner or buy yourself a HUNDRED DOLLAR GIFT and you still saved fifty dollars. God Bless

I have an 04 Acura TSX and when i pull the e-brake or hand brake my brake light on the dash lights up but i cannot drift or 180 why isn't the hand brake working?

Don't do that to your TSX. Buy a Pontiac for that kind of crap.

-Two reasons why the TSX will not work well as a drift car-

1. Drift cars are typically rear wheel drive, the TSX is front wheel drive. Drifting requires excess power to the rear wheels capable of overcoming the friction of the tires on the pavement. A 4 cylinder TSX is a poor choice for a drifting car due to the lack of torque from the engine. You need at least a 6 or 8 cylinder engine, or a super-tricked out 4 cylinder engine to get enough torque. (Don't forget rear-wheel drive works best for drifting) A better choice might be a Lexus GS 400; 8 cylinder, rear wheel drive.

2. In order to lock up the rear wheels with the emergency brake, it has to be a very strong e-brake. The design of the rear calipers mechanically activates the standard brake pads which will always be less effective than with the hydraulic brake system. The e-brake design of the TSX is only to keep the car from moving when already stopped on a hill, or to gradually slow the car to a stop should your hydraulic brake system fail. Also, the anti-lock braking system of the TSX helps limit the possibility of locking the rear wheels to go into a slide. (Thus the name ANTI-LOCK BRAKES)

How do you change rear brakes on 2007 Acura TSX?

I have a 2004 TSX and learned the hard way how to change the rear brakes and had to buy a rebuilt caliper for my mistake. Most brake calipers compress with a simple C-clamp to make room for the larger/newer brake pads. The rear brakes on a TSX are different and you'll notice they have a couple of grooves on the caliper piston. They make a tool that is sold at AutoZone that allows you to compress the caliper piston by rotating it clockwise back into the piston. (It looks like a metal cube with metal prongs sticking out) I also recommend using brake grease on the exposed caliper piston boot prior to compressing it as this will allow the piston to rotate without damaging the boot. Don't forget to bleed the brakes afterward since rotating the piston will likely allow some air into the brake caliper.
