Ideally, you would lift the whole car up, but that's not 100% necessary. This precise control of cam timing benefits power output, fuel economy and emissions performance. This is where the clear tubing and the funnel comes into play. As much as we love 'em, sports cars are pure automotive self-indulgence, with a low practicality index. With five closely spaced ratios, the automatic transmission helps deliver impressive acceleration performance. The system also alters response based on the road slope, providing more throttle gain on uphills, and less on downhills, and also reduces changes in gain on curvy roads to make the car easy to control. If a bunch comes pouring out, then you need to let it drain until it is at barely a trickle.
Owners may contact Acura Client Relations at 1-800-382-2238 and select option 4 or go to www. When we speak of back roads, we speak of this car's prime venue. In order to check that you have the proper amount of fluid in the transmission, you need to have the car level. In short, we hoped the G6 would make a good showing. You will need more than two quarts, but likely less than three.
The drain plug seems like such a pain to reach! The rear seat was cramped. There were unhappy observations concerning the interior as well. A similar low-gain response makes starting out on snowy or icy roads more predictable. With this cooperation between engine and transmission, shift time from second to first gear drops from 1. Replaced clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and flywheel.
This time around, it had a profound impact on the outcome. With better mixing in the cylinders, burn speed and combustion stability are improved. The pressure-cast block with its bed-plate type main bearing cap is a highly rigid assembly, helping to resist vibration. And they sunk lower still during the first two or three legs of the drive to southeast Ohio, as various wheelmen struggled to make the odd angle of the driver's seat acceptable. Owners may contact Acura Client Relations at 1-800-382-2238 and select option 4 or go to www. Also, at high engine speeds, intake valve lift and opening duration were increased to speed the flow of air into the cylinder.
This information is then used to define the throttle control sensitivity. Cannot replicate easily, but frequency of occurrences increasing over past few months. Make sure the car shifts well, and if no warning lights or any other concerns pop up, you are good to go. We're nonpartisan in these derbies, but sometimes we can't help rooting for the home team, particularly when the home boys could really use a victory. Whatever you choose to use, you will need a funnel with a long hose to reach the fill hole. Never work under your car without using jack stands. Bend the splash shield back and out of the way.
All hands cited major wind noise, an apparent leak in the upper right-hand A-pillar area--a little more tolerable than Chinese water torture during freeway cruising, but not much. When it is time to change your manual transmission fluid typically after 60k miles, then again every 30k miles afterwards , don't think you need to immediately call your favorite professional to do this simple task for you. If you remove this plug and nothing comes out, you need to add more. If you drain the transmission fluid from the drain plug, and then can't access or remove the fill plug, you've just immobilized your own car. A lightweight clutch with low-inertial mass allows the engine to rev quickly, the clutch pedal stroke is short and the effort is comfortably low. Targeted changes reduce backpressure and increase exhaust flow from 115 liters per second to 125 liters per second.
Well, it's actually quite simple. As a conceptual group, our roundup of 30-grand sports sedans isn't new. Jack up on front crossmember. The intake cam is progressively advanced as rpm builds, so the intake valves open sooner and valve overlap increases. Refit the inner fender liner if you removed it.
Step 2 — Access the fill plug Sounds a bit odd, right, why go for the fill plug first? Save your hard earned cash, read on, and get this done to restore slick shifting. The liners are made using a spin casting, centrifugal process. It whooshed to 60 mph in 5. To do so, remove the clips holding the plastic liner in place with your flat head screwdriver. There is one inside the driver's side wheel well, and then a few more underneath the front end on the driver's side.
Active Lockup Torque Converter To improve fuel economy and while maintaining a high level of drivability, the 5-speed automatic transmission includes an active lockup torque converter. The SportShift transmission can be operated in two different modes: fully automatic or with driver-selected ratios. Other than routine fluid changes and inspections, the first scheduled engine tune-up is not required for 100,000 miles or more. This produced runs to 60 mph of 6. Step 6 — Replace the splash shield and drop the car Once you have refilled the car with the appropriate amount of fluid, replace the splash shield by popping the plastic rivets back into place. Emissions control As automotive emissions standards tighten, a trend toward decreased power output is the natural result. Go for a test drive to ensure the transmission shifts smoothly, then it's good done.
To cope with the additional power output for 2006, capacity of the second gear clutch pack has been increased. Another important safety feature: The logic will not allow a downshift that would cause the engine to over-rev if the driver selects too low of a gear ratio. Yes, yes, how we do suffer. Other space saving measures include a double-row idle gear and a tightly packaged second-gear clutch. And in a couple cases, a profusion. To establish the current driving conditions, the system monitors pedal position, throttle position, vehicle speed, engine speed, calculated road slope and corner radius and engine vacuum.
