1988 Honda Legend K3 2.7 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
I love it, but everything seems to cost $3000 to fix
The problem I have got, is that the car feels like it is in 3rd gear when I take off, so I put it into 2nd gear, then as soon as I am rolling, I put it into drive, and all the quotes I get are 1500 to 3000 dollars to fix the problem. So can any one help me out here? I have been told that the gear box solenoids (the lower one) can get a build up of muck on it and make it difficult to operate properly, does any one know how to take these solenoids out?
The tappet noise problem, may be fixed by removing the sump off the engine and cleaning the oil pick up filter/mesh, as this is very fine and can get blocked easily over time.
The Legend is a great car, and one day I would like to fit a DVD screen in the upper dash compartment, plus do a few other treat add ons, even a twin system that looks standard. 4 pipes out the back... yum.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
