hello acuraworld. I wanta introduce myself really fast and also have a question. First off im new to owning a tl. My dad owned a 1st generation legend and also owned a 2nd generation legend all as my dad says smoove. the 2nd generation got stolen so he went and bought a 1st generation tl. so i guess its kinda in the blood to buy acuras. my wife is on her way to getting a third generation tl. So ill be posting her car along with some light changes. so my question is one of my friends is selling a 1996 acura tl with 175k body is fine interior is good. im thinking about buying it but i dont know much about what i should check or get checked out to make sure its a decent car. he said he would be willing to take it to aamco to have them diagnose it so i know what the deal is. is there anything else that i should look at or anything that i should look out for. any advice would be appreciated. thanks.

Find out when the timing belt was last changed. If you can't determine when it was done.....CHANGE IT. You will be SORRY if you let it break..... Even if all you change is the belt and not the water pump. Now let me say if you have to pay someone to do the belt, do the pump. If you can do it yourself and don't want to pay the $100 for an OEM pump at least do the belt, if you have to pay do them both.
