Newbie from Ridgefield Wa

Just thought I would stop in and say hello. I have had several Honda/Acuras over the years starting back in the early eighties, smokin Rabbits and 1st gen Jettas with a modified 78 civic coupe.Oldest son is drivin a sweet 91 Prelude.Just picked up the Legend LS sedan for the wifey.Hopin i can find a few answers to a couple little problems before I put in needless wrench time,and maybe I can throw in my 35 years of car knowledge to help some one too.

Glad you guys made it out, and nice meeting all of you.

Thanks for the welcome.Ive been checkin the forums for a smokin problem everyone seems to head toward valve stem seals, but my car does not smoke at start up, only after you let it idle. When I take off I get short burst of bluish oil smoke then nothing until it idles for 5 to 10 minutes???

Welcome to the forum Randy, that's typical signs that the valve stems need replaced.

Thanks for the welcome Big Boy.I grew up racing/wrenching Detroit muscle, and still have a few. Those cars always smoke at startup when the valve seals are shot. ( I have a Vortech 350 apart as we speak for the same issue) Looks like I will be doing the same thing on the Legend. I found the write up on seal replacement. Great info here for beginners and old guys like me too Thanks again
Randy

Glad to see someone from near my old stomping grounds. My wife and I are from Vancouver and moved to SoCal a couple of years ago. Miss the green. Don't miss the wet.
