#88 of 144 Question regarding my 04 TL transmission?
Jun 17, 2010 (8:53 am)
(Question) I have a 04 Acura Tl I purchased it I would say a few months ago. I have noticed something with it that I'm not use to with other cars I've driven in triptronic. I notice that the car automatically shifts in second gear by itself is that supposed to be normal? When down shifting it does the same thing. As stated earlier I've driven other automatic cars in manual but you have to change each gear by yourself.

every car I have ever driven, including my 06 TL, that has a manual mode for the automatic transmission will shift automatically to the next gear (up or down) as speed changes

Thanks you for your reply "Mikey" but I'm not speaking about driving it in automatic I'm speaking about driving it in manual, when you drive it in manual you have to shift it up or down yourself as if your driving a stick-shift. I've had the Audi 04 & Saab 9-3 and you have to shift through all gears unlike my Acura that is goes in second gear by itself and you shift through the rest.

When needle on the Tach goes pass a certain RPM it automatically does that- it prevents over reving. I had the same issue with my 2003 type S, the 09 that I have now does not seem to do that, and the revs match when you down shift. I think they are improving this technology better and better each year. When I had the 03 I use to do a lot of over revving when down shifting.

If you'll reread my post you'll notice I was talking about driving an automatic in manual mode.

Oh ok I misunderstood!! I did find out that I was able to drive in first then switch to the second gear manually but only some times. Should I worry about this? When I drive in automatic the gear shift ok I wont say perfect because some time I feel the gears kick in.
#94 of 144 Manual Trans. '05 3rd Gear
Aug 04, 2010 (7:46 am)
I purchased an '05 TL with a 6 spd. manual transmission.
Love the car. One issue/question, when I am shifting into 3rd, on occasion, it wants to grind a little, almost as if I was not pushing the clutch pedal (which I am).
It seems to be intermittant.
Any thoughts here?

I have the exact same problem. I purchased my MT '05 TL in June '08 and that "notchy" shift to 3rd has always bugged me. It is intermittent indeed. I'm having the "B24" maintenance done this Tuesday and asked the owner of the car service place to change the transmission fluid too and that I don't want the Acura recommended fluid. I've read quite a bit on Acurazine that GM's "Synchromesh Transmission Fluid - Friction Modified" is the way to go. My service guy said to let him know and he wil try and procure it. One place to start reading up on this is the following link below. Can't wait until after this Tuesday when I get the service completed!

Hey thanks for the info.
Please let us know how this works out for you.
I may have the same service done if you have good results.
BTW, enlighten me, what is the B24 maintenance?
