#587 of 812 Clutch Sinks to Floor and Does not Return
Oct 03, 2005 (6:18 pm)
Clutch pedal sinks to floor and has no pressure to return to its normal postion. Has anyone had a similar problem? What should be done?
My 1992 Acura Legend Coupe v6 engine with 5-speed manual transmission
Any clues appreciated. TIA.
PS. The mechanic wants to change clutch slate and master. He said "hydralic part has slow internal leak and needs to be changed." It is normal wear and tear of the part. Clutch and transmission have been already been changed 4 months ago.

There should be a TCU (transmission control unit) mounted right next to your ECU, I'll leave it up to you to figure out what that does But as for the ECU...
Straight from a reputable auto repair website:
"Definition: The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) controls the fuel injection system, ignition timing, and the idle speed control system. The ECU also interrupts the operation of the air conditioning and EGR systems, and controls power to the fuel pump (through the control relay). The ECU consists of an 8-bit microprocessor, random access memory (RAM), read only memory (ROM), and an input/output interface.
Based on information from the input sensors (engine coolant temperature, barometric pressure, air flow, etc.), the ECU determines optimum settings for the output actuators (injection, idle speed, ignition timing, etc.)."

Anyone care to comment on a 7900 Purhcase price for a car with 48k in excellent condition. This car should have 100k to go based on my experience with Honda and Acura but the pricing appraisals all come back in the 5000 -5500 range. Thanks

I'm definitely not an expert....
But, I do own a '92 Legend L.. with around 40K on the clock...
Before I bought it from my uncle, he had a few dealers tell him that they would put it on their lot for $8500, and probably get $7500 out of it... this was a couple years ago...
The Legend is very popular, and the LS model even more so.... but, it seems prices have started to tail off a little, as it gets harder every year to find nice examples...
Not sure if this is a dealer or private seller, but if the car is in good shape, in accord with the low miles, then I'd say it should probably bring $6500-$7500... The lower end from a private seller, and the upper end from a dealer...
With that mileage, I can't see it going under $6K, unless it has some bad custom work or is an iffy color, or some other problem...
Hopefully, some of our members will chime in with some recent pricing experiences.. (I got a family deal on mine).

Great Info - thanks kyfdx.
What are the trouble areas I should look for? Isn't the tranny an issue for some years? Also, wasn't there a hefty HP increase for the last year or two on the 6 speed. I saw some information a while ago and can't find it now. Any help is appreciated.
Also as an enthusiastic car person, what other great buys would you suggest. I like the idea of an old early 80's low miles supra. I saw one going for 14k. I love the idea of getting a car for 8K and selling it in 3 years for 7k. Grand National may not lose much value either but good ones tend to cost a tad more. Sorry to digress but Acura sure did a good job way back then and I'm wondering if anything can compete before I sell my G and have to decide.
#592 of 812 Yellow ABS Warning Light
Nov 02, 2005 (12:48 pm)
I have a 1990 Legend (L Series) with 188K miles. For some time, well over a couple of years, the yellow ABS warning light comes on after brief driving and remains on. A local mechanic has assured me nothing is wrong with the ABS system but nothing can be done to "turn off" the warning light. Does this sound reasonable and has anyone else had this problem? I'm getting ready to sell this car and I'm sure this question will arise with a perspective buyer.
#593 of 812 car seat cover
Nov 02, 2005 (1:10 pm)
I have a 93 Legend Coupe.
leather seat, and driver side power seat. The leather on the front seats cracks pretty badly.
I want to cover it with a seat cover. I'm using a t-shirt to cover it for now. But because of the bucket seat shape, the back doesn't fit well at all.
Anyone uses a seat cover of some sort to cover their seat ??
If so, can you tell me how good they fit, what brand, and what price ??

I have read several comments on overheating. I wokred for Honda for a few years so I had access to my techs on a regular basis. I have a 93 Acura LS Coupe Type II, 6spd. It had an overheating problem as well. The relay to the electric fan had to be replaced, it was as simple as that. Check your relays first, look at your diagram in your fuse box, the one located in your engine compartment. My Acura mechanic had stated the relay that runs the second electric fan (the one that usually turns on after your car is off and turns on and off as your car is at idle) usually has to be replaced after 10 yrs or so. Try that if you haven't. If I recall the relay was about 20-25 dollars.
