Lots of us here spend more time fixing our Legends than we do driving them, but those few moments that we spend with our babies are worth it all.

help!

okay.... so.... i had been having symptom #1 (temp gauge up then down) erratically for a while until my car threw up antifreeze all over my driveway -- a mecanic replaced the thermostat, and the guage problem recurred.... I started working at an Acura dealership, they did the head gasket replacement job b/c that's what they said the problem was.... symptom #1 returned after about a week.... brought the car to a friend's machine shop so he could test it, and the gasket work held; no coolant leaks, pressure tested fine, etc.... been driving it for a couple weeks now, symptom#1 still happens usually once a day, sometimes less sometimes more, and now ive been developing symptom# 3 (loss of heat)... my manager here at acura thinks it's possibly the thermostat, maybe a clogged radiator.... any thoughts??? HELP!!!

I believe there is 3 screws for that one. Just take a deep breath a carefully look and pry and see what is holding it.

I would tell ya for sure what it is but I haven't removed them in so long.sry

There is a third bolt above the alternator more or less. You can't see it without a small mirror or something like that, feel around in that general area and you should find it.

Its recommended but not necessary. I didn't use new ones and its been 2 years with no problems (concerning the head gaskets).

Considering most Legends have the problem and many aren't willing to shell out the cash to have someone else do it, this should be a popular DIY for years to come.

I finally convinced my boy to turn my site back up. You should be able to see all the pics now. Sorry about that everyone but I live a hectic life...... Now I have to do another on my 95GS cause it's having the same problem. Maybe I should do another one with more pics. I already replaced the timing belt and water pump on her so I only need to do the heads. How is everyone fairing on this?
