Question about 1992 Acura Legend
Hi i have 91 legend i need a specialists to work on my car, i went to the dealer and they ****, i live in new york astoria. can anyone help me find a great shop, thanks. car shakes on park, neutral, idles low, and normal, engine shakes low idles sometimes, i hear a tick, tick, noise, and a scraping noise only inside the car, u dont hear it outside or under the car, i took it to the dealer and they **** big time, they just charge alot for notin.
I just did a quick search and came up empty...I may be wrong about the
actual shop/store name...I sometimes associated shops through ownership
instead of what the name on the door was, because many shops are owned
by one person but have bought out other shops. Like the Volvo shop in
Amityville is owned by the same guy that owns the Land Rover shop up on
the North shore almost opposite Amityville and also the one in South
I think the shop I was thinking of is in Valley stream. Generally speaking the further away you get from New York City, the more honest the shops get. Labor prices are scary high though in all of them. Personally I think all those cars are over -rated, Accuras are pretty much overgrown hondas. But, what do you expect from a Jeep guy? I re-read your post to see if I could offer any insight to the cars problems but aside from the possibility of a vacuum leak somewhere and maybe a lifter hanging up, I won't even try to guess at the scraping noise. I stress to everyone that asks for mechanical help the importance of testing. Yours is a good example of why "remote control" diagnosis is sometimes nearly impossible. If I was working on your vehicle I'd need to do some testing and probing before coming up with anything definitive. so, guessing is a "shot in the dark"
You may be able to find a smaller shop with specialists who have left dealerships and started out on their own. Check with people you know and see if anyone knows of such a shop and has used them. I ran a shop some years ago and we took in just about anything that rolled. My guys were all specialists, and "fugitives" from dealerships. I found that by limiting stupid rules that restricted creativity and thought, I could turn these guys loose on anything and they would fix it! Hope you can find a shop like that...There are still a few around!
