Correct Water Pump - Single or Dual Outlet?

Can anyone definitively tell me what Type of Water Pump will fit my 1994 LS Sedan? I haven't taken the timing belt cover off or purchased the water pump yet to know exactly. Maybe someone could list the correct water pumps for all the second generation Legend sedans and coupes for everyone's reference. Thanks in advance.

Not sure, but I think all coupes might be dual.

I replaced mine a while ago. It's a dual outlet.

why would coupes and sedans be different? its the same engine, unless its a typeII.

however, i don't know the answer to that questions.

I think it might have to do with the oil cooler. As I stated before, I'm not sure(you just have to read). Could be Type I or Type II related as well, again not sure. I really do think it has something to do with the oil cooler. Maybe type I's have it and Type II's don't.

I am pretty sure my '94 L was a single outlet. I am also pretty sure you can see the outlet from beneath the car without removing the lower cover. If your car is stock, just call a dealer and have them tell you.

Yup, did some research and found the following:

All coupes have an oil cooler stemming from the oil pump housing, the only difference being that type I and type II cooler "caps" (where the hoses get connected) have the water hose nipples at slightly different angles.

91' and 92' sedans have an oil cooler as well, same "caps" as the type I coupes.

93' thru 95' sedans do not have an oil cooler they just have a plain "cap" with no hose nipples at all, however, the GS sedan(both 94' and 95') has an oil cooler and has the same "cap" as the type II coupe.

With this information and using deductive reasoning, I would say with an oil cooler you would use the water pump with two ports and without an oil cooler would be the water pump with one port.

Anyone else feel free to do your own research, but I'm confident that this should be the difference.

BTW don't usually do this but

+1 for me

I don't have an answer to your question. I am, however, going to take one step back and strongly suggest that you do not seek an aftermarket remanufactured water pump. Call a Honda discounter (Acura of Augusta for example) and buy/install a new OEM Honda water pump.

Read what I posted and you will see that what I stated will coincide with what you just posted and what many others will post. That's why I stated that who ever thinks it's incorrect, find it.

I am positive that your Legend will have the single outlet(your car does not have an oil cooler). Call Acura and ask them

BUMP

I am curious as to why Acura/honda had type 1 sedans from 93-95 without the oil cap etc and all type 2 had one and yet earlier type1s did also????

This is so bizarre....
