If the engine is burning too much fuel at idle(rich mixture at idle), the ECM should show a trouble code. If possible, have someone scan your engine computer for codes. The codes should indicate what is causing the rich idle condition, such as a bad O2 Sensor, or multiple cylinder misfires. If you can't scan the engine, or the scan does not produce any codes, the only thing I could suggest that would help the condition is a fresh air filter and new spark plugs.

1989 acura legend will not crank over after replacing alternator and battery

May not have been the alternator , check the main relay module , may need to re solder the connections. Its under the dash on the left side
of the steering column , its a little hard to see and get out but the connections often burn through the solder and present problems such as this that mimic a fuel supply problem .

1989 Acura legend white smoke from exhaust and won't pass smog what is the problem?

white smoke maybe a sign of a blown head gasket,crack in cylinder or head,letting water leak into 1 the cylinders.check and see if you have water(coolant)in the oil,if there is ,it will look kind of like a bad chocolate/vanilla milkshake mixture.if any of this is true then your looking at rebuilding the motor,which should be done by a qualified automotive tech,and get the extra warrenty if possible.

Acura Legend 1988

You can get some idea of what you need done by the smog stations readout.I suppose you looked at the computer codes under the passenger seat, the O2 sensors could be faulty. If you have done a total tune-up after the car was running rough, you may have to replace the Catalytic Converter. It's job is to be so hot it can finish any unburnt fuel, but it can be "spent" if the car was abused. The final engine thing is the exhaust valve adjustment, but you can hear clicking if the clearances are too great.
