Question about 1990 Acura Legend

2 Answers

Car won't start

My 1990 Acura Legend is hard to start.
This problem is never in the wintertime. Now it is starting again since its getting close to springtime and it is getting hotter (weatherwise) outside during the afternoon. Since it is coller (weatherwise) outside in the morning I do not have that problem.
It usually takes about an hour to get it going lately.
I checked with a timing light that the spark plugs are getting juice. It seems okay at that point

    Is this the main/starter/power/ignition (a bunch of parts stores call it different names) relay?

I have 1992 Acura Legend v6 3.2L. If the outside temperature is 85+ the car won't start but when it is cooler outside it starts. What could be the problem and its solution?

It could be the coolant temperature sensor is reading wrong. You can verify this by having a live data scanner hooked up to see what it is actually reading.
