Brake fluid is forced out under pressure from ABS resevior

I have an 89 Honda Legend that develops pressure in the ABS resevior and forces up to half a litre of bkake fluid out the top. This first occurred on a hot summers day immediately after being driven but now happens after being driven on random occasions.

Hi,welcome to fix ya. this usually happens when the solenoids stick in the modulator . take the car to a dirt road and apply the brakes several times to activate the ABS system to clean up the valves in the solenoids. this usually frees them up. if not you will need to replace the ABS modulator.

Break pedal loses preasure and drops quickly it's like the abs is taking over.


The most common cause of loss of pressure is a faulty master cylinder. The seals in the master cylinder could be allowing fluid pressure to pass thru.

How to blead clutch in 2004 holden clubsport


im assuming its a vy clubsport?
Make sure you remove all the old fluid from clutch resevior and clean it out properly.
You will need to raise the vehicle on a hoist or atleast 4 cat stands .
you will need 3 people in total to get the job done correctly.
fill the clutch resevior with new fluid.
get someone to stay under the car to open slave cylinder to release air.
someone to seat to drivers seat to pump clutch pedal.
and someone at resevior all the time to top up fluid.
when bleeding system just pump the pledal slowly when the person bleeding slave cylinder says hold.hold the pedal down with light pressure when the slave is open you will get air and then little fluid .
repeat process until just good flow of fluid comes out ,once this happens you should have a good pedal..
hope this helps you

How do you drain the transmission fluid from a 1988 acura legend coupe?


The drain plug is on the right side of the automatic transmissions towards the front. You will get 2 to 3 quarts out and need to get Honda approved fluid (which is really Dextron I). It is $8 a quart at the dealer and the Castrol version is half the cost.

Chirpping noise coming from the ABS system,why? Under the hood there is a black ball like cylinder right under the brake fluid resevior, that says something about being "pressurized" that seem to vibrate...


HBB- hydralic brake booster
there was a recall for that - check you local dealer with VIN. I had the same thing, but somehow mine didn't fall under that even though the symptoms were as described by recall - as soon as you touch brake pedal it chirps. some metal baffle inside corroded and it's loosing the pressure
i ended up paying dealership $300 part and labour about 3-4 hrs.

Top goes down but not up


the hydraulic pump /resevior is located behind the back seat.lift up front of bottom cusion,pull forward,remove.lift up on seat back,like it's hanging on hooks.remove.locate fill screw or rubber plug on top of resevior.w/ top down fluid should be 1/2'' to3/4''below top of fill hole.it uses automatc trans fluid,so if you see red fluid under the seat you have a leak.

Procedure for fluid change and filter 9/89 acura legend


The oil filter is a twist-on for this year and is near the passenger front tire. There is room for an oil filter wrench but it may come off by hand. The drain plug is in the center of the pan facing the rear of the car. Add 4 quarts and check.
If you change the transmission fluid only use Honda approved. You won't get too much out of an automatic, but it would extend the life of the trans.

1993 Acura Legend Overheating.


This could happen if your fan is indeed weak.  To test disconnect the thermostat of the radiator by removing the terminals near the radiator hose towards the engine.  You should see the fan run at its highest speed, then you can check if your fan has weakened.

I have a 1990 honda civic hatchback si with an 89 ZC DOHC black top engine.. the rear motor mount is cracked and each time i down shift the engine raddles.. how do i change out the mount? and if possible.....


You will need something to lift the engine so that you can take the pressure off of the mount. It sounds like your fuel pump may be wearing out and it is not responding like it should...The pump on the gas tank should be located on the top of the tank....Under the back seat....

Engine coolant


you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..

((WHEN THE ENGINE/COOLANT IS COOL>>VERY IMPORTANT!!!))

1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.

2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.

3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.

4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.

5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.

6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.

7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.
