This trouble is a possible clutch slip which can be fix only by overhauling or the shift solenoids are not working properly, the S3 lite flashing on you means they are not working. Try flushing first and clean the solenoids by carb cleaner and smacking it on a flat board to dislodge the dirt. Then spray again and after which you ground the body of solenoid then connect the terminal to the plus side of battery (positive) and the solenoid should kick with a cliking sound. Strong sound means it is still good and a weak sound means still dirty or maybe out. No sound is dead solenoid. Good luck.

If I were you, I will seek the help of Transmission guys right away, The slip mean only one thing the pressure in those clutch pack is escaping or the o rings are gone/broken. The clutch held for a while when pressure is not that much until it rose and push the fluid out of the clutch when the slip occur. If you don't have the S3 flashing green light the aforementioned statement apply. However, without the light you need the overhaul. Flashing S3 light menas the shift solenoid is not connected or not working at all. You need to flush and replace the solenoid. It will cost you around 125 USD plus the fluid, another 20 USD. Good luck.

Possible source of clink, clink noise is from your fly wheel where the torque converter is attached. Fly wheel sometimes got cracked or fractured..so when the car is pulling the noise is more audible or at idle. This, however, applies if the transmission is shifting/working right. You need a transmission shop to fix this trouble.

#21 of 23 Problems with 91 Legend Sensors
Nov 18, 2009 (4:39 pm)
my 91 legend started overheating.i thought it might be the jacket lining in the engine, but oil and water were not prevalent on dip stick and performance is fine. So acura recommended i take out the thermastat,so i did that and operating temp is normal.If i put it back in the rpms go up n down repeatedly. oh n it's worth mentioning that before this overheating the speedo stopped working. Sometimes it would work,but usally only for kms or two. Then i ordered a new speed sensor had it installed and all the speedo does is jump around.I read about the procedure with the fuse and have done so,but no dice. the d4 light on the shifting sequence just blinks.The other part of the suggestions was the therma sensor may be shot and or the coolant sensor. I have both those sensors and i will try. I am just wondering if any one has any suggestions or if they are familiar with these problems.
#22 of 23 Radio Code - 92 Acura Legend L
Dec 11, 2011 (5:42 pm)
I had my 1992 Acura Legend to the dealership last year, they had to disconnect the battery to do some work, they reset the radio code as I told them it was located under the ash tray.
A month or so ago I had my battery disconnected and never got around to recoding the radio.
Today I pulled out the ash tray and to my anger someone had scraped off the code from the bottom of it. I will call the dealership tomorrow but for now am pretty upset that they would do that. What benefit would someone gain by this action? And where do I get the code now?
