#332 of 812 Anything I should know?
Feb 16, 2002 (4:02 pm)
I have recently come into possession of a 1995 Acura Legend GS, with all the works, but it also has 130,000 miles on it. I've never owned Honda/Acura cars before, and would like to know if anyone knows of problems occurring with this model at this stage. It appears to be in excellent condition, and I have not had any trouble in the last couple of weeks I've driven it, but as I said, I'd like to know of any problems (if there are any) that happen to these cars. So far, I've been very impressed by it; it handles very well and is a lot more responsive, agile, and faster than my previous vehicle ('89 Isuzu PU). Any comments would be appreciated.

Brent-The metallic rattling noise that you hear is more than likely the catalytic converter heat shield. There was a TSB on it and it can be easily fixed
mrdosguy-A '95 Legend GS with 130k miles has plenty left in it thanks to the great Honda/Acura reliability record. Has all of the required maintenance has been done(timing belt and water pump are the two most important)? If so, you shouldn't have too much to worry about. The most common problems for the Legend occur in the cooling system. The stock radiator has a plastic tank that has a bad habit of cracking. Other than the cooling system, not many things usually go wrong. Enjoy your car!
#334 of 812 Engine revs from 1000 to 2000 rpms and back

Anyone had problems with engine surging while in park? Occasionally, the engine will surge and rpms go from 1000 - 2000 and back/forth. I own a '92 Legend? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the info, th83. I haven't had it looked at, but I made an appointment for next weekend, so I'll find out if anything is wrong with it. I hope not, cause I have to say I've fallen in love with this car. Very nice ride...

jkr-I have that problem, too. I also have the aforementioned overheating problem which leaves me to believe that my car has a blown headgasket. As much as I hate to admit it, it makes sense. My car is also losing coolant and I think it may be going into the oil. Check your oil and coolant levels often for any changes in the levels. If your coolant levels drop but your oil level raises, chances are you have a blown headgasket. If the levels do not change, you may just have a vacuum leak. I hope this helps...
mrdosguy-Glad that I could help!

#340 of 812 92 Legend Trunk Release not working by jkr1

#341 of 812 dashboard lights not working
Feb 22, 2002 (7:19 pm)
1991 Legend LS Sedan. The light(s) for the speedometer and tach don't work. All the idiot type lights and turn signal indicators do work, but they are lit from behind. I can find no fuse in either box for the dash lights. Is there a light in the dash for the instruments, how do I get to it, or is that the likely problem? Thanks
