Take off the hose to the throttle body and look for any obstructions. This has been know to cause performance issues similar to those described

    timing could be off timing belt out of time.if timing good do a cylinder leak down. check for cylinder ring leak intake leak and valve leaks.poor compression will cause no starting problems.

    I had this problem... My Acura would start and stop as soon as I let go of the key..... This problem was due to my Battery being to low..... I just needed a NEW BATTERY.....

  • Jonah Oneal Sep 05, 2011

    CHECK AND SEE IF SPARK PLUGS FIRING COULD HAVE BAD IGNITION COIL. ENGINE NEEDS SPARK OR FUEL TO RUN. IF YOU GETTING FUEL AND NO SPARK YOUR IGNITION TIMING OFF TIMING BELT WORN CAN ALSO THROW OFF VALVE TIMING IN WHICH WILL CAUSE ENGINE NOT START.

My 91 Acura legond moter cranks over but won't start


Engines need 3 things to run-spark, compression and fuel/air. Check the simplest things first. When you turn the key and the warning lights come on, does the check engine light come on? It should turn off in 6 seconds, if everything's ok. I Check the air filter, make sure it isn't plugged up. Take off the oil fill cap, and look in. I believe you can see the rocker/cam, use a flashlight. Have someone crank the engine with the key, see if the cam turns, rocker moves. If not, broken timing belt. Next remove an igniter, put a plug in it, have it plugged in and hold the plug near a ground. Have it cranked, check for spark. If no spark, it needs more professional diagnostics. If yes, Fuel is left. If you sit in the drivers seat, windows up and quiet, turn the key to run, all the warning lights come on. The fuel pump runs for 2 seconds, a low hum from the back. You can usually here it if it is quiet around you. (Just because it makes noise, doesn't mean it's good.) Your car also has a main relay that powers the fuel pump, a common failure. Last thing to try is starting fluid sprayed into the throttle, throttle open 1/2 way, while someone cranks.
One of these should lead you to the failure. Note: the main relay is powered by the ignition system, except for that initial 2 seconds. So if there is no spark, the fuel pump won't work either.

Acura legend won't start


Acura is made by Honda, and Hondas built in the 1990s had a problem with the fuel pump relay getting hot and failing. Its located under the dash on the driver side.
If you are loosing fuel pressure I would check that relay.

Why wont my 1989 acura legend start, it cranks up but it wont start?


Probably your fuel pump. If its EFI remove the cap from the shreader valve on the fuel rail and turn the key to the on position. Listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump kick on. Leave the key on and press the shreader vlave. if fuel doesn't come out hard and strong then either it's the pump (most likely) or the fuel pump relay might be bad. That relay can be changed with other relays of the same part number in the fuse console under the hood. Try switching it out and see if the car starts. If all that checks out good then the next step I would take is to look at the cam / crank sensor.

Intermittent starting problem and now it will not start.I cannot hear fuel pump. ive been told to replace main fuel relay. I replaced ignition switch a year ago.


Your starting problem may be a clogged filter or a bad fuel pump. You are not having problems with the engine cranking I assume.

1990 Acura Legend, location of main relay for fuel pump


looked it up online, looks like its in the underhood fuse box but couldn't get a good diagram that shows which relay number it is. the website i use is sort of dependent on the manufacturer, apparently acura did not feel like sharing that info. hope that helps

Acura Legend Sedan 3.2 lts 1994


replace de ignition module first.. if still wont start good chances is the crank sensor is located behind the timing belt.. my 94 legend use to do the same thing until i replace the crank sensor.. and also if u can afford i will suggest u to replace the main fuel relay too... all this is after u are 100 pcnt sure that ur fuel pump is working....
