Acura Legend QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I brought my car to a mechanic to repair the air conditioning. They told me the compressor was out, and so they charged me $600 to replace it. About a week later the AC was no longer blowing cold. I took it back, and they tried some things, not sure what, but it also didn't work. So I took it back a third time and they replaced the air compressor, at no charge. About 5 days later, no cold air. Took it back again and now they are saying they found the leak, and it is the condenser, and it too will have to be replace for another $315 or so. Does this sound legit? It seems that this all should have been done at once, so I am wondering how much additional labor is warranted to replace the condenser, and would it have been cheaper to have it all done at once.
WHAT IS CAUSING THE ANTILOCK BRAKE SENSOR LIGHT TO BE ON
I just had my front struts replaced. All of a sudden, after the replacement, I am getting vibration and clunking noise after the car has been driven a while. This comes out of the front drivers side. The noise disappears temporarily when I take my foot off of the gas and let it coast. It started immediately after the struts were replaced. The dealer says, after his mechanic drives it, that there is nothing wrong. I am a tyro. I trust my dealer. I am just perplexed that they cannot find or fix this problem and it occured after the major work in the front. Please Please help!
how do you read the codes on the code box?
when is it time to change the timing belt?
There is a code box under the passenger seat. I need to know if there is a way to find a list of codes on line. The car turns over but won't start.
1. The engine is shaking when am accelarating expecially on a hill
2. The car bings our white smelling smoke from the exhuast and the temparature rises.
3. The D4 light is always binking after a 3min ride and never stops, but the gear sellection is normal
car has 155,000 miles started with getting hot then temp gauge went back down. now just stayes hot. changed coolant and themostat.
Mytransmission will not go into reverse
when i am at idle my car vibrates like wanting to shut down
engine overheats, no heat inside, engine revs up and down at idle.
I was recently in traffic when the person in front of me suddenly slammed on his brakes, forcing me to do the same. Even though I did not hit him and no one hit me (no physical damage to the vehicle), the airbags deployed and the seat belts locked up. Now, I am unable to deploy either of the front-seat seat belts. How can I "release" these so that they are useable again?

My 1988 Acura Legend used to have stalling problem while driving slow or stopped. And about three weeks after that problem appeared, my alternater went wrong and drained my battery and I had to put a new one in. After I put the new alternator in, both problems dissapeared, until last Friday I hit a pot hole and my car started stalling like that again. It happenes like this: first I slow down or stop, and the engine started jerking and I can feel the uneven strong shakings from the engine, and then it dies. And if I restart the engine, it will die again within seconds unless I hit the gas. Does that sound like the flywheel had been messed up by that flywheel, or it maybe something else?
We've checked the radio fuses and they seem good but no lights are coming on the radio and the antennae is not rising. We've had no other issues with the radio before.
it seems like we need to either rebuilt the engine and the housing or replace it with a japenense 2000 or 2001 engine, could that be done, and would it interfere with the computer
I went to run an errand and when I unlocked the door, the alarm went off. I put the key in the ignition and the alarm turned off, but the car wouldn't start. On top of that the lights, int.&ext., all flash and there is a clicking sound coming from the fuse box. What is this and can I repair it myself at minimal cost?

My car recently developed the starting problem. Last time I had to tow it to the mechanic shop. The mechanic says my car has blown head Gasket and it is smoking. So when the engine is heating up it is having the starting trouble.
My temp gauge does not show that my engine is heating up but I definetly thin white smoke coming out of the exhast for the last one week. I have recently changed the engine oil in Walmart. They have put Castrol.
I am not able to believe that it has a head gasket blown. What could be the cause for the starting trouble it has?
I am replacing an Ignition Lock Assembly on my 93 Acura Legend. How do I remove assembly from the steering column?

My Legend is an 89 coupe. The cooling fan comes, and goes off, even after the car has been sitting in my garage for 18 hours. Is there anything that can be the cause other than the temp sensor???
I was just told by a representative that I'm going to need a new wheel bearing replaced on the front right side along with the racket pinion, and ball joints. I'm looking for a good inexpensive mechanic that will work on the for much less than the price they are trying to charge me which is more than I paid for the car. What exactly would this type of work consist of that it would be so expensive?
thanks a lot for get back to me. I'll keep you post
