Default Is Acura Cl and Tl the same Transmission?

My Transmission for my 2002 Acura Tl type-s Broke, and I am wondering if a 2001-2003 Acura Cl type-s Fit in my Tl??

They are the same. Have you taken it to the dealer? Acura extended the transmission warranty to 7 years or 100,000 miles on your TL-S.If you're just past 100K, they still might take care of you. Also try other dealers, they are not all the same.

As mentioned, the transmissions are the same between the Type S sedan and coupe versions...Please check out the PDF file (below) of the actual Honda (court) settlement covering their transmission failures. The make/model/year of your car is most likely covered under this settlement (the PDF will list a range of VINs that you can match up against your own vehicle). The vehicles affected are mainly V6 models, from 1998 to 2002, with a smaller number from 2003.And if I'm not mistaken, the settlement goes for 7 yrs and/or 109K miles. On the practical side & from annecdotal stories coming off various Honda/Acura enthusiast sites, Honda's customer service related to making 'good' on the settlement has been a bit spotty. I recall accounts where Honda will only cover the cost of the tranmssion, not the labor. I've also read of accounts where high milage transmissions (those close to the extended warranty coverage) were only covered at a pro-rated basis.Any documentation you can produce showing you've been regular in your car's maintenance will also work to your advantage. The actual problem was associated with 2nd & 3rd gear clutch pack failures; there seems to be a 'theme' of either faulty matterials used in sub-assemblies, or an inadequate design. I also understand that various production runs of these transmission were built to Honda specs, but subcontracted to either Ford or GM. IMO, there is value for those driving Acuras/Hondas with the J series (SOHC, V6) engines from '98-'03 to consider adding an off-board transmission cooler, and to religiously change your transmission fluid per factory specs...keep your maintenance records! Honda claims that only 3% of their cars cited in the lawsuit have transmissions that are affected. Some websites claiming to be in the 'know', say the numbers go as high as 8%.
