Acura won't start

I have a 1988 Acura Legend with a 2.7 v6. When the ignition is turned on the check engine light does not come on, and when you lock the doors the security light does not flash. The engine turns over but the car is not firing. What might be the problem?

I have a 1988 Acura Legend with a 2.7L. My starter turns over but my car does not turn on. There is power going into the coil. I know that for sure. I don't know if there is coming out of it. I know there...


Remove the cable which connects your coil and the distributor from the distributor side. Have someone to crank your engine while holding the cable (use insulated pliers to hold the cable by insulated part). Maintain 1/2 inch distance from the engine surface where is some bare metal without paint. If there is the spark, then replace your distributor's cap and rotor. If there is no spark, replace coil and check your cap and rotor anyway, if they look worn and black inside, then replace them anyway. Note: before removing spark plug wires from distributor cap, mark wires and distributor!

Have a 1988 Acura Legend with a bad ignition switch...problem is how to get it apart to fix it. Can't get the bottom column cover off...any suggestions?


i think you meant Ignition switch.
really a 1988> no 1998?
the latter has air bags, and BOOM are very very dangerous.
yes, you are fiddling plastic covers. use a flash light.
covers, are you talking the steering column combo surround covers?
remove the screws , under under, do down, and look up, bingo?
i hope its a real 88,
i login to alldata.com
i look at lock removal.
7 steps, you are stuck at step 2
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column lower cover. Disconnect the ignition switch wire connector from the dash fuse box.
  3. Insert the key and place on the 0 position.
  4. Remove the 2 screws and replace the base of the switch.

  1. To remove the lock, remove the steering wheel and the steering column covers.
  2. Center punch each of the shear bolts and drill their heads off with a 3/16 in. drill bit. Be careful not to damage the switch body when removing the shear head.
  3. Remove the shear bolts from the switch body.
end remove.
ask questions.

My 89 Acura legend starts cold and has never died after running but after I turn it off it won't start again for 15 minutes or so. It's done this since I bought it 2 years ago. Anyone know how I...


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

How do i check or know if i need a new oxygen sensor for my 1988 acura legend


What you do is pull the engine error codes. On the other hand, oxygen sensors can be replaced, based on time. A good running engine keeps the sensor hot enough to last a really, really long time.
