There is a air adjust screw on the side of the throttle body. I got the RPM slightly higher. Everything is computer controlled and a tune up is the user friendly thing to do. Plugs/wires/rotor/cap and air filter. Check the hoses for a loose or broken one (vacuum leak) and if you take off the air filter tube you can spray carb cleaner onto the throttle "butterfly" where it gets dirty.

My 1993 acura legend will die for no reason but most of the time it will start right back up some times it will take a wile but it will start back up. You never know when its going to do it you might drive...

When it dies does it take enough time to restart as if it needed to cool down for maybe 15minutes or so? the problem sounds most like your starting to have a pgmf-i main relay go bad.Its located on drivers side up behind lower kick panel. its a dealer only part but any acura dealer will have several in stock.
