    Replace the main relay. It is located under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the plastic panel to gain access.

    The main relay, is that the fuse panel on the driver side along the side of the car or is it actually up under the dash board?

    The main relay is located up under the dash on the driver's side. It controls the fuel pump. Click on this link for more information: http://techauto.bravehost.com/acurarelay.html
  • Seen alot of misinformation, I just want to clarify a few things.

    First off, the question of which is better, TYPE-R or GS-R?

    If you want to stick with all-motor mods(non-turbo/supercharger), go with the TYPE-R, it has a higher compression(11:1).

    But, if you want all out power and insanity, go with a GS-R, it's compression is still high at 10:1 but with low compression pistons and cylinder sleeves, it responds much better to TURBO or SUPERCHARGING, mods and is capable of far more power than a TYPE-R.

    I do not remember the magazine, but from a shop called ENDYNE in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas, they turbo'd a 95 GS-R to 744 WHP(wheel horse power). without slicks it was running 10.01 in the 1/4 mile.

    Stock TYPE-R's at 195 hp are faster than Stock GS-R's(170) and will respond better to simple cheap mods.

    VTEC in fact kicks in at 4400 with the first lobe, and the second lobe of VTEC kicks in at around 6000.

    I own a 95 GS-R got it around 04-05 for 6k, the owner before me added Cold Air Intake, DC Headers, and Borla exhaust. An enormous storm here in UTAH swamped my old GS-R engine because i did not have an air bypass valve(now i know), USDM(united states domestic market.) I imported a JDM(japan(ese) domestic market) engine. it has a higher compression of 10.6:1 than a stock USDM GS-R, and 180hp instead of 170, with mods has over 200 hp.

    I haven't topped out my new engine yet, need to fix my front right drive axle first(huge 1-1/2 foot porcupine damaged it) but my old motor with same mods hit 149 on I-215 here in utah.

    Take Care All, and please research before giving info.

    I'm going to test drive a 1994 GSR sedan with 200K miles tomorrow. Are there any problem areas I should look at? The owner has all maintenance receipts and is the original owner.

    I'm really looking forward to the drive. I had a 1998 GSR that I sold in 2001 and can't wait to get back behind the wheel.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Have a 99 Integra GS, with 38k, Just brought it in for servicing. Here is what they told me I needed with prices. Am I being ripped off, or is this legit?

    New Belt- $799. ( never had it replaced, so probably need it, car bought in 99, new, have had all service done, but never new engine belt.. they are telling me it should be replaced every 60k or 5 yrs.)
    Trunk Latch-$468 (latch is sticking, telling me they need to replace whole thing)
    Front Brake-$189 (they say needs replacing, ok..break is making kind of hollow sound, so could be true)
    Brake Cap-$75
    Splash Shield-$117.98 ( hanging down, needs replacing)
    Sunroof-$918 (sunroof is difficult to open and they say the whole motor is going and entire thing needs to be replaced) I live in southern nevada, so love having the use of the sunroof with the nice weather, but is it worth to replace or not?
    Basic 37,500k service- $79.95

    Love my car, have had no trouble since owning it. Replaced battery once, and recently bought new tires. Should I be putting this kind of money into a car that is this old? Should I skip the sunroof repair? :confuse:

    Any insight you can give me would be much appreciated!
    Thanks!

  • OK, I have the same Car, Turn Key, Just a "Click" I tried the Clutch pedal positioning, reset the "Maint required" even That it was not on, it's a waiting game till it starts. WHere Can I find this Switch under the dash? Is there a Shematic that can lead me to this item? SOme say: Starter is going bad, Others say Starter relay, I have replaced the Fuel Pump relay Last month ( and it was not needed) Also the ABS system was replaced not I have an issue with the Breaks!
    The Pedal st a stop will eventually go all the way to the floor. Acura service want 400.00+ for repair of just the Break Master Cylinder.. I can get the part for less that 75.00. Is there a web site I can go to to show me some parts breakdown for the "Switch you refer to and perhaps the Master Cylinder are.. I really Love this car and have had it since the day of it's birth :-)
    By the way, I have read many of your replys to folks... I would like to thank you in advance for your support to them and Also to let you know... You have helped me as well :-)

    Thanks

  • WOW, Was I asleep!? The Vehicle is a 1994 Acura Intergra GS-R. 110. K miles. All services done since birth of car. I wonder if this Starting problem is something Acura may already be aware of. Perhaps I may get LUCKY and there is a service Bulletin on it. Hmmm?

    Recently replaced:

    Clutch assy
    Shift Master Cylinder (was leaking) then not shifting properly
    Battery with Reversed leads
    Relay (which controls fuel)
    ABS master cylinder and accummilator
    Break pads

    Shouldn't this car be Toast?
    :sick:
  • hi. i bought mine in 2005 with 189k on it for $1500, but i did buy it from the parents of a friend. i feel you though, i love my integra, but i feel like i think it's worth way more than anyone else is willing to pay for it. hope this helps at all.

    by the way, my 92 has no badge other than "west" on the hatch. i think it's a gs-it's a 1.8L 3dr. just curious if anyone knows.
  • what's up everybody? new to the neighborhood. anyway, my 92 has been giving me trouble starting. the battery is less than a year old. lately, i've been needing a jump to get it started. also, i noticed that when i raise the power windows with the headlights on, the headlights will dim slightly. is this necessarily an alternator issue?

    thanks
  • At present I have a 98 Integra LS with 302,000 miles on it and would like to know how long do these typically last, and how much more I can drive this one before I make any more major repairs or replacements. I just wonder if the recent repairs and the upkeep expenditures were worth it, considering the mileage and the fact that I am looking to replace this one sometime this year.
  • hey everyone. my 92 integra has a problem with the fan running for way too long after i cut the motor, to the point where it drains the battery and won't start. anyone have any suggestions? thanks!
  • We bought this 1992 mint condition Type-R in Dec 07. Only had 50k miles. Drove perfectly for 1 month. Then it would not start. Taken to dealer determined after many checks that it was a blown head gasket. Now they tell us that one of the cylinders is cracked and that the engine is shot.

    The dealer said they cannot find a engine to get replacement parts.

    My questions are these;
    1) Does anyone know of a web site that has alot of Acura parts available?
    2) Can a LS engine be put into a Type-R, will the tranny work?
    3) Does anyone know of a machine shop that could manufacture the cylinder?
    4) Any known good Acura rebuilders in the NE

    I really want to keep this one. The body and interior is truly in mint condition. Please help.

    Hello.
    I hope to soon sell (or possibly trade in) my 1996 Acura Integra GS-R (70,000 miles). However, currently it needs a new radiator and other parts. My local auto shop has given me a bid of $700 for parts and labor.

    Should I have them repair it before I try to sell or trade it? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hey i have a 98 integra dashlights and interior lights dont work when i change the fuse it blows...my antenna wont work and the light for the door is always on but doors are closed if anyone can help me it would be great its a pain lol thanks
  • tparktpark Posts: 3
    I believe you have a short somewhere in the wiring of your lights. Trace the wires from the inside of the dash back to the fuse box or from the fuse box to the dash.
  • hey guys...can anyone help me locate the a/c high and low pressure service ports on my 92 integra? i'm trying to recharge/retrofit the system to 134a...thanks!

  • I have a 96 gsr and Some times when I get on it, the passenger side half shaft will pop out of the tranny. I can get under the car and pop it back in and it drives fine. I replaced both half shafts and my motor mounts are fine. Any ideas?

  • when im driving 40-60 mph and my foot is on the throttle my car makes a whistling noise, im new to the imports so im not sure what it is, any suggestions?
  • If you have an after market air intake the filters sometimes make that noise. I have had two cars that have done that. I wouldn't worry about a slight whistle. If you wanna see if it is the filter, take it off and put the stock one on and go 40-60 or you can just take the filter off, but don't drive too far with it off, you don't want stuff going in your intake manifold.

    Hello:

    What are the insurance costs like for an 1999 Acura Integra LS sedan with automatic transmission?

    Are these costs more than other import sedans like a Maxima, Corolla, or Accord?

    I know that Integras (and like other Hondas) are the targets of thefts and also used for street racing.

    I have experienced that same thing, I have 93 GS. But mine was never too serious and mysteriously went away w/o any repair.

    Sorry this reply may be a little late for you. (Strangely, i bought my car the same week you posted your msg).

    I have an intermittent starting problem with my 1993 Acura Integra GS that my mechanic has been unable to duplicate or diagnose. When the engine is cold, i sometimes hear nothing when i turn the key (though not every day!) But then if i keep trying it, the engine will eventually turn over, and starts fine the rest of the day. Sometime the delay is only a few seconds, sometimes almost a minute. Can anyone offer an explanation?
  • mmyk72mmyk72 Posts: 67
    My 94 Integra LS did the same thing a few yrs back. Eventually it wouldn't start at all or only intermittently. I took it to a shop and they said to put in a new starter. After that, it has worked fine for several yrs now.

    Another possibility could be just loose connection at the battery.
