First scan the PCM for trouble codes using a hand held scanner, Then repair codes by replacing failed sensor as needed. If no codes are present then try replacing the idle air control motor.

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.

The butterfly valve inside your throttle body may be loose causing your idle problem. have it inspected to see if it is.

One of your redundant magnetic speed pick-ups are bad. Probably a couple hundred bucks service from your dealer. Worth it. I also had a low idle problem when this happened; car would die at low rpm. New mag pick up fixed that also.

1993 Acura Legend Overheating.


This could happen if your fan is indeed weak.  To test disconnect the thermostat of the radiator by removing the terminals near the radiator hose towards the engine.  You should see the fan run at its highest speed, then you can check if your fan has weakened.

Brake lamp is on


when the brake light is on it usualy means one of two things. First one is parking brake is on, second is low on brake fluid. More then likely time to change brake pads or could be leak in the system.

Engine runs really hot, and engine light comes on while in D4


I had the same problems with my Acura Legend. On the problem with the running hot and the idling up and down, your cooling system is low. Fill your cooling system start it up and look for leaks, steam, or etc. repair and refill and your problem should be cured if the cooling system is full. At this time i'm working on the other problem. Good Luck
