ACURA VIGOR MAINTENANCE PROBLEM
1993 Acura Vigor • 250,000 miles
This is a great car but now it giving me a little trouble. The car has an exhaust leak, so its a little on the loud side. But as im driving I get to about 35 - 40 mph it get rough as im maintaining speed im guessing it needs a tune-up just want a little more helpful advice as to what it could be. Steering is tight, so I popped the Hood and all the belts were just hanging and the middle cylinder coming out of the motor was loose but it still drives . So I parked it so I don't mess anything up. Please help me!!

DO YOU DO YOUR OWN WORK?
IF THE BELTS ARE OFF---THE WATER PUMP MOST POSSIBLY AIN'T TURNING---IT WILL QUICKLY OVERHEAT AND SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE COULD OCCUR IF YOU RUN IT LONG OR DRIVE IT
GET THE BELTS AND PULLEYS --- TENSIONER -- LOCKED UP/ BROKEN DEVICES (LIKE THE BELT ITSELF-- A/C--A TENSIONER-- ALTERNATOR) REPLACED AND / OR REPAIRED----SOMETHING MADE THE BELT COME OFF!!!
CHECK YOUR FLUIDSCATCH UP ON NEGLECTED MAINTENANCE
THE KEY TO OWNING A 35 AND 66 YEAR OLD DRIVING PARTNER IS PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE, CHECKS, AND SERVICES (PMCS) IMMEDIATELY FIXIN' CRAP WHEN IT BREAKS
HERE'S ANOTHER "KICK -BUTT" CJ MEDEVAC ANSWER!
I ANSWER WITH MUCH BETTER INFO IN THE CJ 7 AND CJ 5 FORUMS HERE AT 2 CAR
I ALWAYS DO IT ALL, TO INCLUDE FULL BRAKE INSPECTION (REPAIR IF NECESSARY) CHANGING ALL FLUIDS TO ANY "NEWCOMER" VEHICLE TO OUR DOMESTIC FLEET (WHICH AIN'T VERY OFTEN...I WIND UP DOING IT ALL FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!)
I DO NOT TRUST ANYONE ELSE'S "CLAIM" OF WHAT WAS DONE IN THE PAST----WHEN I GET DONE, I KNOW EXACTLY WHEN/ WHERE/ HOW THINGS WERE DONE---NOT TO MENTION IT ALSO SERVES AS A REALLY THOROUGH INSPECTION---I KEEP SORTA DECENT RECORDS WITH A LOG BOOK WITH ALL WARRANTY RECEIPTS--AND MOSTLY MY SERVICING RECORDS, MPG CHARTS ON SOME...SEE MY 1ST PICS...JUST A PEEK OF SOME OF IT
I CAN ALSO SHOW YOU HOW TO FIND A "KEEPER" INEXPENSIVE, TRUST-ABLE MECHANIC (IF YOU NEED ONE) I PROMOTE DIY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT!
I CAN ALSO SHOW YOU HOW TO SAVE A GOOD CHUNK OF $$$ IF YOU ARE BUYING YOUR OWN PARTS
SIMILAR SAYING LIKE FOUND IN THE "KARATE KID" MOVIE---"(pending member)-SON, YOU MUST BE ONE WITH YOUR JEEP......I mean ride!"
DON'T YOU THINK A "REAL VEHICLE" WOULD LOOK GOOD IN THAT CORNER PARKING SPOT......LIKE A REAL JEEP?
