please help. My 92 legend while idleing sometimes would idle up and down
then it would run good. It would also stall when idleing at a light
sumtimes. It would start up but stall right away unless i kept my foot on
the gas to make sure it idle a little higher. car always ran good. Then
one day while driving it just stalled and died. it will turn over but wont
start? sensor?? timing chain?? please help
If the timing chain or belt broke,the cranking sound/speed will sound
radically different(any engine).Much faster than with an intact timing belt
or chain,because the valve train and cams are no longer being spun and
valves are open,thus less of a load on the starter.
You need to check the ignition system;distrubutor,igniter,plug wires.
See if you are getting a good,healthy spark.I would suspect the
igniter;it's a common Honda/Acura failure. Tegger's website has lots of
good stiff on igniters!(but I don't have the URL at hand,but Google will
