Replace the clutch on my 1990 acura legend coupe, or sell the car

I have a 1990 acura legend coupe with 239,000 miles on it. I have to consider whether to replace the clutch which is going out now..or to sell the car/save for a "newer" car. I have some sentimental attatchment to this car since it's my first car and it was given to me from a family member, however, the car does have a lot of miles on it-and someone told me that if I replace the clutch it will just wear the engine down very this true?

Sounds to me like someone wants you to get rid of the car because of the milage thats on it, that is alot of miles, but a new clutch is not goin to wear down the engine, someone is just afraid its not going to stop with just a clutch that its going to nickel and dime you to death. what you got to understand is someone is looking out for your best intrest, you got to weigh out what you want to do spend the money for a new clutch, or put that money towards a newer car, its not sentimental any more its economics.

Replacing acura legend clutch master cylinder

Well, it just unbolts, remove fluid line and replace the unit.

What is very important is to "bench bleed" all of the air before mounting unit. parts stores have easy bleeding kits that essentially reroute the output from the unit, directly back to the reservoir. if you do not pre bleed, you may die before you ever get it working...

My acura legend 1990 jumps out of second gear and sometimes wont get in gear.just sart makin a loud noise but gets quit when i clutch in .i think its my clutch thats goin out but dont know

Probably your synchros in the transmission, if so it's cheaper to replace the tranny with a known good/tested junkyard trans.

If it was your release bearing on your clutch you would hear a ringing noise when you push the clutch in to release it.

If the car is in overall good shape you might consider changing the trans and installing a new clutch kit, it will come with the bearings, etc. Be prepared to lose a gear completely and you'll have to skip that gear during your shifting order to get up to speed.

How do i change the headlights in a 1990 legend coupe?

Lift the hood to find the rear of each head lamp assembly. there is cup-shaped cover over the rear that needs to be rotated 1/4 turn one way or the other and removed to access the bulb inside. With fingers or needle-nose pliers, depress and unhook the centering wire-keepers off of the bulb and pull-out the bulb by the connector. you can now replace the bulb

The anti lock light has just come on in my 1990 Acura Legend LS Coup but the brakes seem to be functioning just fine? just a sensor of an indication of a pending problem?

Just an indication that a sensor has probably gone bad, and thus the sysem has defaulted to "off". You can test this, of course... Find a safe place, accelerate to 50 MPH. Hit brakes as hard as you possibly can press them.

EEEEEEEEERT!!!!! ? Anti-Lock is off.

Thumpa-Thumpa-Thumpa? Anti-Lock still working!

Thumpa - (screeeee from one wheel) - Thumpa? You've found the culprit...
