Driving along and power goes out. As if pops out of gear. But do not hear a popping into and out of gear. Then all the sudden pops back into gear. This is dangerous. High speed and then power goes out.

2004 Acura TL engine cut off. Consumer also states that there was a throttle actuator malfunction. Seems that the consumer is requesting reimbursement for repairs. A diagnostic test revealed the throttle body was filled with carbon which caused the engine to stall and the vehicle would not respond to acceleration.

Intermittently while driving vehicle stalled.. when this occurred the engine died, and vehicle lost power steering. This made it difficult to steer the vehicle. Dealership serviced the vehicle 4 times for this issue, but was unable to provide a remedy because they couldn't duplicate the failure.
