Question about 1991 Acura Legend

1 Answer

96 Acura SLX, Drove 80 miles and died. Just quit on side of road.

Engine oil checks good, engine turns over fine, not fast not slow. Sprayed starter fluid in intake and would not start, so I think that eliminates fuel problem. I am thinking main relay or some other electrical problem. Please help.

I once had this problem and it was a fuel relay!
Mine was under the dash on the drivers side. The fuel relay was a small black rectangular box that pulled out like a fuse.
Newer model cars usually have these under the hood.
If you find it and decide to pull it and buy a new one ask the parts store if they can check the old one first to see if it's good before you buy a new one!
I hope this was helpful!
Good Luck!

Accidentially left the the engine oil cap off. Drove for less than 24 hours about 20 miles. The car had a rubbery odor. I thought it was the tires from my daughters bike in the back. The engine oil...


If the cap has been replaced, wait til the car is cool/cold and purchase a can of brake parts cleaner and inspect under the hood for signs of where the oil sprayed. Clean it with cleaner and allow to dry prior to starting it.....fire hazard. Good news, this stuff dries fast.

Hey i have a 95 honda civic ex coup. the car has been idleing funny and when i push the clutch in it seems to want to die some times. then one night i drove around and it seemed to drive fine i parked and...


Sounds like the timing belt may have broke. You can check by opening the oil cap on the valve cover and watching the valves while someone cranks the engine. If the valves do not move, your timing belt has snapped. Please let us know if this is not the cause or if you would like instructions for replacing the belt.

2002 Acura MDX. AT TEMP light came on and and steam and oil came out by right driver side tire. Do you have any idea what this could be ?


The Drivers side is the LEFT ....you mean Left tire correct? Your Automatic Trans was overheated. WHY??? who knows, but its not good. Start by checking the ATF fluid level, and the engine coolant. Were you driving hard? fast? up a mountain? off road? was the engine overheated? I woul dhave it checked ASAP, you may already have damaged something.

96 Honda Accord won't start.


Check three things:
1. Oil is being "siphoned" by the flow of air when you drive (like a whistle)
Is the oil dipstick missing? or hanging out a little?
2. There may be too much oil in the crankcase. Turn OFF engine, clean oil dipstick and then check oil level. Too much oil will be drawn onto the engine.
3. The rubber seal around the PCV valve is compromised. Replace PCV valve ($6 AutoZone)

Questions: When you try to start the engine, what does it do?
nothing?
click?
the starter spins?
Do headlights stay ON when you try to start?

I have an 1998 acura slx. It will not start after replacing the old battery? All it does is click when I turn it over?


Check connections to make sure they are free of corrosion and tight, including connection at starter. If all connections are tight and clean, check the battery. Even if it's new, there is a chance you purchased a defective one. You can bring it to a parts store for a free check. If it checks out ok, you may have a starter problem. Pull it, and again, bring to the parts store, they can check its' condition off the vehicle to see if it's operating properly,

Engine started dying after serpentine belt replaced. Had mechanic check codes, none showed up. After picking up the car, drove 5 miles, engine died again frequently on way back to machanic. He drove and...


If I remember correctly, the serpentine belt change on this motor can be quite involved. It may require the battery being disconnected to avoid shorting out cables. Check for loose battery cables especially on the negative side where it is secured to the engine block.

Starter kick back


If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !

Spark plug replacement


you will see six wires running from the engine to a central box.....trace them from the box to the engine and at the end of each wire will be a spark plug. You may have to remove a hard plastice shell from the the top of the engine.
screw drives and deep socket are all the tools you should need

Good Luck
