If an explosion of gasoline and air mixture wont damage the cylinder you can be CERTAIN that shop air wont.

Just an FYI: My beloved 91 blew both rear cylinders (gasket on both rears). It never overheated in the 3 years that I drove it after replacing the engine in early 07. I first observed coolant resorvoir levels depleting regularly in December of 07 and was in BHG denial until late 08 early 09ish. The Definitive test is really that definitive!

Default performance chip

Hi this is to SR5guy,
I'm new to this forum, however I understand you are the guy to go to for the performance chip for the Legends? I am interested in purchasing one, if you still have them. Please contact me at my email at Bkim187@gmail.com. I would greatly appreciate it. thanks

I did this the cheap and easy way. But It was beyond clear mine were blown...
1. remove 1st rubber seal on radiator cap. with out this the cap will automatically send any pressure to the reserve tank. Cap will be destroyed but o well your probably fucked anyway if your doing this. lol

2. get a 3/4 full, clear bottle of water and set it on the front bumper with the cap off.

3. put hose from radiator (that went to the coolant reservoir) in the bottle.

4. start it up and watch for bubbles.

5. U can also set the bottle on the battery or something so u can watch it from the driver seat if u desire to rev it or just wanna listen to some tunes cause you might be tearing that amp out soon.

6. If you have bubbles, (not just a few loaner bubbles probably in the system anyway) I mean bubbles that keep coming up after 10 mins of doing this. Your HG's are blown.

7. By using clean water u can also see if there is any oil shine in it. And of course u can smell some exhaust If its real nasty... BHG.

7. No tools required, just a cap that's 12 bucks at Acura. I guess u could use an aftermarket cap and just save your good one.

Good luck!

Or, better yet, just pop on the Lisle spill-free funnel that clips on to the radiator neck. Every Legend owner should already have one of these as they are essential to properly bleeding the cooling system anyway.
