Acura Legend QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I was drii and it just stoped it has water and oil but wont start or shift out of park
just trying to see what all needs to be done
1988 acura legend Coupe, The tachometer stopped working, motor has hesitation, and stalls when I put the car in reverse a couple times and started back up after 15 minutes, check engine light comes on after 10 minutes of driving, I cleaned out the terminals on the shift position console switch which since the dashboard display doesn't show what gear its in and the car appears to be always taking off from 2nd gear on, when gear is put in drive or S3 no difference, when I start the car the computer under passenger seat and footboard both flash light once
My car is an automatic and it drives ok for the most part but it does tend to be jerky between gears 1,2,and 3 there is no strange noises or anything but the D4 light is blinking should I be worried ???
No heat til car been running 20 or 30 min. Replaced thermostat, coolant temperature sensor and 2 hoses. Overflow bottle is nearly full. Runs at normal temp for a few minutes then temp gauge goes up to redline for just a few seconds and then back to normal. Lost all my coolant for the 3rd time...Besides this the IACV needs replacing as the engine races up and down in Park.

the battery and alternator seem OK, but the engine wont catch. This only happens when it is over 80 degrees. Could this be a fuse or a relay?
Battery dies repeatedly because the cooling fan is coming on at night and draining the battery

I've done changed the spark plugs and spark plug wires, and also the distrubiter cap
Once I crank it up, it will stay on for 5 mins and then cut back off. And once it does it won't crank again for 24 hrs. and do the same things all over again.
11/10/2011 replaced the battery cause car wouldn't start. Started to have issues with dimming lights. Eventually led to car dying and not starting again. Replaced the alternator. Got lights and sound but engine does nothing. Any suggestions?
alway's idle at 1500 rpm
I have no defrost it used to come on once in a while out of the blue but now it seems to never want to come on now that it is cold. Is there an easy solution to troubleshoot the control panel or blower motor? I have checked the fuse and it is fine. It also seemed when it did come on that the speed was only 1speed like medium. I would appreciate the help it's too scary to drive with no defrost and it is my only car. Thanks
I have a 90 Acura Legend L (automatic). I was driving to a new job (uphill) and all the sudden the engine light came on and the car started dieing when I pushed on the gas. I was able to drive it back home. When I got it home I tried starting it up and it would act like it didnt want to turn over. Once it did, it would idle rough and try and die. When I push on the gas to go, it dies.
I checked the self-test and it flashed once. I changed the front O2 sensor and then check it again, it flashed twice. I changed the rear O2 sensor. I also changed the spark plug and wires along with the fuel filter and still same results.
I was told possibly my distributor so I changed that today. Now since I changed it, it wont start at all. It act like it wants to but wont turn over where before it at least did that.
I checked the spark on the spark plugs and it sparks but not at a normal spark; very low, dull spark.
Could I have done something wrong when putting it in or do you think the ignition coil is now bad?
My dad recently replaced my tie rod ends and upper control arms (L&R) 3mo ago; ever since there have been crazy sounds...a creaking sound whenever I apply my brakes & terrible clunking noises whenever driving over uneven road surfaces. Before the work, you could hear general squeaking like that of an old spring bed & some clunking noise but now it's crazy annoying & worrisome. Furthermore, last DEC a Baltimore mechanic told me that the clunking stemmed from the need to replace upper control arms in my rear wheels; overall, I didn't get a good vibe from him or shop mgr.
1990 Acura Legend LS (V6)
Furthermore, all interior lights (panel & console excluded) & cig-lighter stopped working maybe 2months ago; there's also been a faint radar-like beeping when engine is started (not always heard & tends to stop after a short time; once it persisted during a 2hr drive). Could it all be related?
This happens every once in awhile.when i move the shifter to neutral, it will start right up.
I was driving from Sacramento to Truckee and my check engine light came on. Then my car started puttering. I stopped at a gas station, checked the oil and turn around. It was still puttering and I made it all the way to my drive way before it died. Now, I can start it and it is fine idling but as soon as I give it gas, it dies? Suggestions?
