I recently replaced the alternator in my 92 acura legend. I charged the battery. When i turn the key all the lights come on but the engine doesnt turn over or make a sound. What can i check ?

I recently took my 92' Acura Legend in for what I thought would be a simple tune up and electrical work on power windows. I was told I needed a head gasket replaced and that it would be cheaper to just replace the whole engine. My Acura is in very good condition I kept it in a garage for the past 4 yrs. and only drove it maybe twice a year. I noticed a little smoke from the tailpipe but related that to nonuse and I kept it serviced never getting alerted to any issues. I agreed to go this route which was going to cost me about 1600 motor and labor a good deal I was told. Now after having my car for over two weeks the call back saying there's something wrong with my axle. I do not know what to think or believe. I have never had a problem with my axle and like I said before my car has had limited driving was barely over 100,000 miles for it's age, nor have I ever had any problems with axle related issues. What could be going on and is it all worth it. I really love this car and I have taken great care of it!

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.



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 95 Legend's engine is loud.
Sounds like the gas is being pushed when im not applying the gas.

ok, here what I have. first of all the year list above isn't correct, I have 86 legend with 2.5 liter V6 or translate to 1st generation legend. I bougth the car from elder couple and plan to fix it up and I did. the problem is over heat and compression leak. ok I figure head gasket and I change it. plus new timing belt and water pump. put it together and car run fine for couple block couple times. then I wanted to flush out the dirty oil and water mix in the motor. I put in 1 qt of gunk motoflush and the car start runing rough. and hard to start, it's even making grinding sound something hitting inside. what is the problem can someone help!!!!

D4 light flashs and speedometer falls to zero miles per hour
than back up to speed.

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?

where is the fuse box on my 1990 acura legend

How can I idle down a 92 acura legend
