Purchaser a can of spray White Lithium Grease and spray the hinges. Wipe off excess.

    Thank you kindly.
    I guess I should have been more specific. The pass. door is fine but the drivers creaks like mad. There are hinges top and bottom and nothing seems to penetrate them. There is also one of a different sort in the middle. At the body side there is a pin under the plastic that has a circlip on the bottom that came off easily and I greased the pin and holes and it quieted some. I can feel it vibrate when I move the door which leads me to believe most of the noise comes from it. I removed the two screws on the door side but could not get at the bar that goes into the door. I did not want to remove the door panel if I could help it because I always seem to wreck the fasteners. The two main hinges have rust colored grease around the pin and female hinges. I could not seem to get those pins out, there is some kind of retainer on them but are difficult to see even after cleaning as best I could...lots of dried up grease rust etc.

    I understand. In this case you need to purchase a can of spray penetrating oil. Something like P7 which will dissolve rust, lubricate, remove moisture, and is not harmful to paint and plastic. You will have to spray every single contact point. It will come with a plastic tube to insert into tiny spaces. You should not have to remove any parts to reach the culprit using the tube. Another good one is Kano Kroil which is fantastic. SP3 is also very good. There are many choices. Once you hit the right spot the noise will be gone. The center object you speak of stops the door from opening to far. Spray the underside and the top. Do not take the pins out of the hinges. You may need to clean as much of the lithium grease off the hinges as possible before spraying them. I am sure with one of these penetrating sprays you will solve this problem. I have had the same problem on some cars where you just think you are never going to stop the squeak, but keep at it and you will succeed. If it moves spray it.

I have 93 acura legend i wanna know can i put a 99 coil pack on a 93

No. I don't think there is such a thing as a 1999 Legend. '93 is a COP(coil on plug) design. '91 to '95 are interchangeable.

Why is door locks sticking. All the doors don't lock when the car is placed in drive, and only one or two unlock when unlocking with key fob. What is the problem?

You are not telling me where you live, but here are some ideas.
Door locks have "always been" inside the doors of the car, and as such, cannot be easily lubricated at all.
From the factory, they have no lubrication, are supposed to "just work" for 20 years or so.
I would be highly suspicious that you may live where there is ice and snow, which can cause rust or corrosion inside the doors, and may make your locks stick . Fixing would include taking each door apart and lubricating the mechanisms. That is a big job.
Be blessed.

Lexus 93 ls400 remote not working for driver's door

if all other doors work the door lock actuator needs replaced most likely. if door switch works the same. if not then it could be a bigger problem in the circuit or remote control module. use a meter to test for signal to lock actuator. if no signal then ck control unit. if signal replace lock actuator.

I locked my keys in my ignition in my 88 legend Coupe LS does anyone know how to open from the trunk so I casn crawl in

Only by breaking and entering: you'd have to punch out the lock cylinder to get to the latch.
Try a coathanger wire past the door molding to reach the door lock and trip it. A "slim jim" may also work-a thin metal bar that slides down the outside of door window into door and catches the lock rod to spring lock open. Finally, call a locksmith to open door, and have him make you a spare key after he opens door.
Good luck.

My 93 acura legend wont start. Ticking sound??

That sounds like a dead battery. The ticking sound is the relay (a type of switch) which enables power to the starter motor when you turn the key. If the battery is weak, the relay will click, but there is not enough power to turn the starter motor.

'93 acura legend sometime will not start, or will start and cut off in a couple of seconds. Wait a while and it starts up. The wait time varies.

My 93 legend starts up when i turn the key, but sometimes when i release the key the car will cut off.
I had the fuel pump replaced some weeks ago thinking that was the problem but now its doing it again. Any solutions will be much appreciated.
