Default New transmission in TL

Well I got my 2000 TL back from Acura today. With 87k miles on it they put a
new (remanufactured) transmission, fuel regulator, PCM (computer), and front
engine mount. I had to pay for the latter. I also had to pay for a new
seatbelt that had a bad buckle switch that caused the SRS light to stay on.
BTW he told me there was a SB and extended warrantee on the passenger seat
sensor and computer for the SRS (but that turned out not to be the problem).

It drives like a new car! The general roughness I was experiencing was
obviously the transmission. He claimed the remanufactured transmissions have
all new guts. It seems to have extra parts attached to the top compared to
the old one so hopefully there were some changes made to the design to fix
the problems.

Acura seatbelts have a lifetime warranty. You should not have paid for the
belt buckle. The extra parts you are referring to is an oil injector kit and
the new trans should not have one on it. However it wont hurt anything. Just
sprays fluid on clutchpack/gear inside the trans fill hole.

It was listed as a "fuel regulator" and I assumed it was a fuel system
component not part for the transmission.

Thanks for the information about the seat belt. I'll give them a call.

I received a recall in the mail for my '01 TL. Something to do with:

Front Seat Belt Buckles and,
Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) Control Unit / OPDS Sensor

If the SRS light comes on and it's due to one of these components
failing, they will fix it for free. They have extended the warranty on
these components to 10 years / 240,000km.
