▼ ▲ Main Menu Engine Exhaust Controls The engine exhaust emission control systems are designed to control combustion during idle, acceleration, cruise, and deceleration. These systems are entirely separate from the crankcase and evaporative emission control systems described previously. PGM-FI System The PGM-FI system consists of three independent subsystems; Air Intake, Electronic Control and Fuel Control, thus allowing more accurate control of air/fuel ratios under all operating conditions. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) detects the amount of air drawn into the cylinders and determines the amount of fuel to be injected to provide the optimum air/fuel ratio for all engine needs. Ignition Timing Control System This system automatically controls the ignition timing to reduce the amount of HC and NOx. Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) The EGR system is designed to control the formation of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) caused when fuel mixture burns at high temperature. It works by recirculating exhaust gas through the EGR valve and intake manifold into the combustion chambers where it reduces peak temperature by diluting the air/fuel mixture. Catalytic Converter The catalyst is used to convert hydrocarbons (HC), carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in the exhaust gas to carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), dinitrogen (N2) and water vapor. Air Supply System A secondary air supply system helps improve emission performance by promoting more complete combustion during deceleration. ▼ ▲ Main Menu Catalytic Converter A catalytic converter is installed in the exhaust system to help clean-up the harmful exhaust gases that can cause air pollution. CATALYTIC CONVERTER To be effective, the converter must work at high temperature, so don't park your car over dry grass, leaves or anything else that could burn easily. To stay effective, the converter must not be contaminated by leaded gasoline; use only unleaded gas as explained on page 70. CAUTION: The converter can be overheated and damaged if it's fed too much unburned fuel mixture from the engine, so: — Don't push or tow the car to start it; if the battery is dead, jump start the car as shown on page 1 3 1 . — Dont't turn the key off while the engine is running above idle speed. — Don't change the ignition timing, or remove any emission control parts. — Use only the spark plugs specified in this manual. — Don't keep driving your car if it isn't running properly, or if its Check Engine warning light comes on; have it checked by your Acura dealer. ▼ ▲ Main Menu Warranty Service Warranty The following warranties are provided with every new vehicle. 1. New Car Limited Warranty 2. Emission Control Systems Warranty 3. Emission Controls Performance Warranty 4. Battery Limited Warranty 5. Rust Perforation Limited Warranty 6. Accessory Limited Warranty 7. Replacement Parts Limited Warraty 8. Replacement Muffler Lifetime Limited Warranty 9. Seat Belt Limited Warranty All warranties pertaining to your car can be found in the Warranty booklet provided with your new car except the required maintenance schedule which is contained here in the Owner's Manual. If you are unable to obtain warranty service or are dissatisfied with the warranty decision or service you received at an authorized Acura dealership, you should review the matter with that dealership's Service Manager. This will normally resolve your problem. If it does not resolve your problem, you should appeal the decision with the owner of the dealership. Please bear in mind that your problem will likely be resolved in the dealership, using the dealer's facilities, equipment and personnel. So it is very important that your initial contact be with the dealer or his management. After following these steps, if you wish to have the matter reviewed by the Acura Automobile Division you should contact: The Acura Automobile Division, Customer Relations Office, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., 100 W. Alondra Blvd., Gardena, CA. 90248 Telephone: 1-800-382-2238. When contacting the Acura Automobile Division, please provide us with the following information. Vehicle Identification Number Servicing Dealer Name and Address Date of Purchase Mileage on your Car Your Name, Address, and Phone Number Nature of Problem Selling Dealer After a review of the facts, you will be advised of what can be done. ▼ ▲ Main Menu Service Manuals An Acura Service Manual is available for your car. It is written for the Journeyman mechanic, but it is simple enough for most mechanically-inclined owners to understand. An Electrical Troubleshooting Manual is also available for your car. This manual complements the Service Manual by providing in-depth troubleshooting information for each electrical circuit in your car. You can purchase these manuals through your Acura dealer's Parts Department.
