SOURCE: symptoms a 1991 acura legend water pump is

The water pump on your vehicle is ran by the timing belt.The timing belt will have to be removed to change the water pump.You have a engine that is classified as interference witch means that it will bend the valves if the timing belt goes out.I would recomend that while you are doing the water pump you should change the timing belt to be on the safe side.

1991 acura legend starts to over heat and the top hose is hot but bottom hose isn't but the overflow bottle is bubbling.what's the solution?


If the upper hose is hot and the lower hose is cold than there is a flow issue. I'm guessing you replaced the thermostat to try and resolve this issue and you bled all the air out of the cooling system? If this is tru than I would suspect the water pump is bad. Possibly the impeller has come off from the shaft? The water pump is timing belt driven.

I have a 1992 acura legend. i change the main relay. i am still have the same problem with starting. what else can it be?


Sorry, if it wasn't the relay. I had AAA say it was the fuel pump and had replaced it and the filter before finding the pump wasn't getting powered up. If there is a bad ground (it was a wire bolted to the thermostat housing on the Cl) you will have to go thru them one by one. Fuel pressure is harder to verify without guages-are the injectors ticking?

Water in head


I do hope your referring to the vehicle 1992 Legend and not your own Head. Acura Legends are V6 equipped motors there would 2 "heads" I'm assuming the water is present when the oil filler cap is removed This is a serious indication of which I recommend having your Legend inspected (Dealer service or Qualified repair shop) for any damage or needed repairs.
