Online Quick Guide to the C32A1
Here is something I found while searching for Legend maintainance tips. I thought every G2 owner could benefit by using at this quick guide. I modified the original image to easily fit on the forum page. Print it out and put it in your Legend!
(If a mod could sticky this it would be greatly appreciated and might be beneficial as well.)
The Acura Legend is a near-luxury car, but under the skin it's still a Honda. All of the familiar Honda pieces are in place, but there are a few unique technical features. The manual transmission has an oil pump to circulate oil through an intercooler at the bottom of the radiator, exactly the same as on the automatic transmission. With the powertrain mounted north-south instead of sideways, the differential is in a separate housing bolted to the side of the cast aluminum engine oil pan. There is an intercooler inside the differential housing too, with engine coolant circulating through that one.
The "Check Engine" light will flash trouble codes by connecting a jumper wire across the service-check connector behind the right side of the glove compartment. The ECU is under the front passenger's feet. The injectors are the same as those used on other Hondas, but the service manual actually lists the resistance of the injectors themselves (1.5 to 2.5 ohms) along with the resistance of the injector resistor assembly (5 to 7 ohms between terminal E and all the other terminals). The timing belt drives the water pump, and there's a cooling system bleeder on the engine behind the upper radiator hose.
There are several service bulletins for the automatic transmission, but with the reputation for reliability and durability, many owners are willing to spend the money to keep these cars in good shape. For owners who have followed the maintenance schedule faithfully, a quarter-million miles is not uncommon.
