Overheating....once

Hey guys,

I just got a 95 Legend LS about a week ago. And today it started overheating. I have read most of the forum a lot of people have had this problem. Cold Air from the heat, and engine spiking. When i pressed the brakes, the heat went back down. That happened just this morning, and i drove around all day 2day. It did not happen any other time, just morning. Could it be a temporary problem?

Looks like a "Large amount of air in cooling system" problem looking at JetDoc's post in this forum. But y did it happen jus once

If it happens once it will almost always happen again. Sounds like the beginning of a problem. Check your fluid level. If the anti-freeze isn't at the very top of the filler neck where the rubber seal of the filler cap presses on the rim, you are too low.

If its all the way to the top and there is no air in the system you may need a new thermostat. You have to diagnose it now before your potentially minor problem turns into an engine rebuild.

I tried to bleed the system but a steady stream of anti freeze never flowed out of bleeder. I took thermostat out cleaned it hen replaced it but erratic idle is still there . Im new to this site and to owning a legend so all help would be appreciated.

i wish we had like an Ac forum rep in every state cuz im in NJ and i am a newb when it comes to cars period. What would you suggest JETDOC a complete and utter newb should do as i own a 95 Acura Legend GS and i dont know what to do, pretty much every symptom you wrote about has occured, and i was told to switch my thermostat so i did that and the mechanic says "Hey you never had a thermostat in there" i dont even know what that means, like is that possible if so why. I am so depressed right now, and i wish someone knowledgable on here lived in Jersey so i could bring my car to them.

Sorry to say, somebody sold you a Legend with a BHG, and they new it. They removed the thermostat to hide the symptoms. The bhg got worse and now it can't be hidden. If it's too late to return the vehicle then all you can do is replace the headgaskets or replace the engine

overheating problem

hi, i know its not a legend or rl but i couldnt find much other info on overheating on my perticular model, the systems are simmilar enough i hope? I was driving when i noticed that the heat was damn near the red. so i pulled over waited a while then kept driving. stop and go till i got to a store, picked up some antifreeze premix stuff, opend the rad *it has a new cap and poured half the thing in there. then noticed that the other reservior thing was full with hot antifreeze. poured some out. the temperature went right down, and stayed there. so after it cooled down i poured more antifreeze in the rad, and had to empty some again from the reservior thingy. i repeat this proces every other day. so now the temperature goes up, maybe about 3/4 or a bit higher then drops down, even a little bit below normal temperature. so i guess i have some air in the system then, need to bleed... but why is it that that reservior thingy is gettin full but not empty, my exhaust seems ok, the antifreeze is a normal color, had some issues with the heat in the car from time to time but works fine lately. my worry is that its the headgasket, i just bought the car 4 months ago, took it to a mechanic before and it was in great shape. He spent 2 hours looking at it and found only a bit of oil in between the tranny and engine but said that it wanst a major deal and some people drive with that for years and years... so its a v6 3.2 and i have about 210k on it. any ideas? thanks
