The problem could be a problem of lack of fuel and spark. May be your battery is low to start the car. It can also be because of a blown fuse or a bad fuel pump. Check the car well to identify the specific problem.

we have 1993 acura legend it hard up it 4 to 5 times to start up when it start it will start up e.z i mean when engine warm up any body have any idea ?

its probably the main relay that needs to be replaced

Check your starter it may be grounded when hot.

It could be several things, start with the fuel filter, it can cause issues such as this, another thing could be the fuel pump losing pressure. If it is the factory pump, it may need replacement. Hope this helps.

press both buttons at the same time, it will start blinking, set it then.

It would be your ignition lock not cathing and needs to be replaced. I have 90 acura legend L. Problem is bad ignition switch. They are about $70 at autozone.

check the distributor cap and rotor also check the coolant temp. sensor.. can cause a hard start condition when cold.

WEll it could be different could be the starter...or the spark plugs not making contact or the wires to the park plugs...or it can even be the battery not having enough juice to turn the car over.....a car is a hard thing to figure out....there are alot of parts that can do the same thing.....and cause the same problem What does it do when it doesn't start? Nothing happens (no sound) when you try to start the car? Does it sound like the engine wants to start but doesn't? We found the answer out to this question...It was a relay switch deep in the dash area of the car. We experienced the similar problem with an '88 Acura Legend...immediately had the relay switch more problems!

notorious fuel pump issues in 87 acura...check the fuse to start .. also they have a issue in the rotor it seems to shorten and the distibuter arcs. take the cap off the distributer and look for any carbon build up ,if it is dirty in there at all that's your problem..

extra battery creating a start situation indicates loose connection or bad battery. I have also seen starters be damaged in the fields and armatuer that will activate with extra power.

most likely flooding the cylinders due to a bad temp sensor. or you have an elec problem and the starter doesn't engage.... you didn't specify.

There are a few possibilities for the problem. The most likely are the main relay and the engine temp sensor. The main relay is a problem very common to older Honda/Acura models, and the temp sensor is a common cause is general.

why won't my acura tl start even though the battery isn't dead

why wont my 97 acura cl 2.2 vtech always start

most likely flooding the cylinders with fuel due to a bad temp sensor. or you have an electrical problem and the starter doesn't turn.... you didn't specify.

spray starting fluid in the air cleaner then try to start it, if it don't start its ur main relay, if it does then its your fuel pump

how do you jump start compressor on a 97 acura 3.2tl

have you checked the fuel filter?it might be clogged up that way no fuel is being delivered to the engine...happened to me on my 90 legend is fine now.

Check your negative cable to the battery.
