    There is a problem similar with mine and it APPEARED that its link with the water pump that has to be replace.
    because this car has a lot of electronical features the cpu of the car will stop the engine if we push the car too much while having that problem.
    cost to repair: around 500$ can dollars.

    anyone knows if we could buy a better part that does the same job as the water pump and less risky to break like that?

I had the same problem, replaced thermostat and still didn't fix it. What did fix it was simply a thourough coolant system flush and fill. It fixed the engine temp problem. They said there was air in the coolant lines. It also fixed a idle rev in cold conditions.

I have 1992 Acura Legend v6 3.2L. If the outside temperature is 85+ the car won't start but when it is cooler outside it starts. What could be the problem and its solution?

It could be the coolant temperature sensor is reading wrong. You can verify this by having a live data scanner hooked up to see what it is actually reading.

Temperature gauge problem

Possibly a bad head gasket. If the water pump is good and the thermostat is ok then its the head gasket. Very expensive on this car since because it requires many hours of labor.It is a known issue with this motor.

1992 acura legend very weird problems

This particular model suffers with head gasket problems. I have had to replace head gaskets on several of these vehicles to solve the overheating problem. The two cylinders in the rear of the engine are the problematic ones. The head gasket goes bad in that area which sends combustion gas into the cooling system. This then creates air pockets which in turn causes the engine to run hot. The air pockets then shift and as water starts to circulate again, the temperature goes back down. This cycle repeats over and over.
Solution is to replace the head gaskets.
