SOURCE: Acura Legend 1994 fires, but won't start

'Fires' implies that you have spark and fuel; I think you mean that it cranks with the starter. Checking these separately is not difficult, you need to remove one spark plug lead and insert a screwdriver, then position the wire and the 'extension' so that the shank of the screwdriver is close to, but not touching some metal related to ground. This is about any exposed metal on the engine. When cranking, during each revolution you should see a healthy blue spark between 1/4" to as much as an inch. This tells you that the system supplying the high voltage is at least working. Of course that alone doesn't tell you that each plug is getting spark but to do that, you would need to remove each plug wire from the plug in succession and test them individually. Generally, if you have a single failed plug wire or plug, the engine will start but miss noticeably and it isn't not likely that all plugs and wires fail at the same time.
Checking the fuel supply depends a little on the delivery system. I think your car does have fuel injection so look for a fuel 'rail' that runs parallel to the engine. This is a length of pipe to which the injectors are attached and delivers gas to them. Most of the fuel rails will have a pressure relief valve on them that looks similar to a tire valve. After cranking for a few seconds, depressing the center pin should result in gasoline squirting from it. If it doesn't, you may have a failed fuel pump or a severely clogged inline filter. A bad fuel pump is more likely.
There are other points of failure such as a defective ignition switch but these will not normally fail instantly but become unreliable first.
When a recently run engine refuses to start, it is sometimes due to too much fuel in the cylinders (flooding) and this can cause plugs to fail to fire and can be alleviated by depressing the accelerator pedal completely to the floor and leaving it there; don't pump. This causes more air to enter the engine without causing additional fuel to flow and will, after cranking for 30-60 seconds, dry the plugs out and allow them to fire again.

The fuel pump in your car may be fused so I would check the fuse box for any visibly blown fuses too.

SOURCE: 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

Show me a picture where the fuel pump relay is located on 1994 Acura Legend?


Acura Coupes and Sedans 1994-2000 Repair Information

PGM-FI Main Relay

This relay is located behind the dashboard's lower cover. It consists of two individual relays. One is energized whenever the ignition is ON , thus supplying battery voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This relay also supplies voltage to the fuel injectors, and power to the second relay. The second relay is energized for two seconds, when the engine is turned ON , to power the fuel pump.
See Figure 1

Fig. Fig. 1: Schematic of the PGM-FI relay
If the engine starts and continues to run, the PGM-FI relay is working and does not need to be replaced.
See Figure 2

0900c1528008be05.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 2: PGM-FI relay terminal numbers

  1. Remove the relay.
  2. Apply battery voltage to the number three terminal.
  3. Ground the number two terminal.
  4. Check for continuity between terminals five and two.
  5. If continuity is detected, proceed to the step 7.
  6. If there is no continuity, replace the relay.
  7. Connect the number four terminal to the positive side of the battery.
  8. Ground the number two terminal of the relay.
  9. Check for continuity between the number five terminal and the number two terminal of the relay.
  10. If there is continuity, the relay checks out "OK". If the fuel pump still does not work, test the harness.
  11. If there is no continuity, replace the relay and retest.

Hi, I have a 93 Acura Legend. I tried to start it a few days ago and it would turn over but wouldn't start. After some time the car did finally start but stalled on the way home. We got the car started...

may need to take a good look at your fuel filter itself...... may look ok ....but check the line as far as you can trace it........and all relays related to the fuel and ignition system'd be surprised! Exspecially the fuese.....under hood and kick panel! I have found that fuses youd think would not effect much ....turn out to be nacessaties for these exurberatated works of head turnin art.............on my third one ........even had a coupe...5speed...I know where to get a six speed...for dirt cheap.. but LUV the sedan! good luck!
