The use of R134 came in the early 90's. The addition of a can or two of R12 would be expensive in the "86 but I used R134 when I changed the compressor (no freon to save) and it worked. The kit has a label to keep others from adding the wrong freon. The belts are different on the 1st and 2nd generation legend.

    They are different engines. The older car had R12 freon, which is expensive, but if you change the compressor you can switch over. Put a sticker on the low side to show others you changed to R134. Put in the oil/seal restorer additive appropriate for the freon you go with.

The radio code for a 91 acura legend 2 dr


The code was issued on two cards that came with the car documentation. If they are not with the car anymore any acura dealer can give you the code if you go there with the car. The code is matched to each car's vin number so they will need to see that the radio is in the car.

1991 acura legend idles fine forever but driven for a short distance overheats and overflows coolant tank, also noticed the fans don't go on. thermostat has been replaced.


Legends are notorious for blowing head gaskets- the most obvious signs of a BHG (blown head gasket) are:
White milky substance on the bottom of your oil cap
white sweet smelling exhaust
a surging idle when the car is started cold.

Have a mechanic run a compression check on all 6 cylinders- this is the most sure fire way to tell what the problem is.

If all cylinders are good to go- check the hoses going to and from the heater core- these sometimes crack and **** in air which will create problems.

Water pumps for this vehicle are recommended from acura to change every 60000 miles so that could be your issue too.
