Hi i got a '95 Integra 2-Door and I was just asking if i can put a Acura RSX engine in it I like the engine in it allready but ther are so mounch stuff i can do whith the RSX so if you have aneythang to add feel free to add
It cranks but doesn't fire. My husband checked it out, and it's getting no spark. Question that we have is could it be the ignition module? Or the atual switch? And if it is the module, where is the module located? My son-in-law is an awesome guy, and we would really like to fix his baby for him.
Help in this would be deeply, DEEPLY appreciated!
get a high-flow catalytic converter instead. that should clear up your check engine light issues.
if I were you, i'd consider getting a JDM b18c5 or b18c5 (type R) engine instead. they'll be somewhat cheaper.
or you could get a JDM h22a from a prelude that is much less and has much more horsepower and torque.
Question, the number one piston is at the top right now and the crankshaft is on the timing mark. (piston 1 and 4 are at top now actually, and 2, and 3 are down.) With the Piston being at that posistion and the Crankshaft on the mark, is it definatly at TDC. Would any rotations possibly be required of the crank for TDC, or should I definatly be there seeing the piston at top?
Also, when Installing the Camshafts, should I put both on in UP posistion and set the distributor back on the intake cam with rotor automatically at the number one spark plug wire posistion and all will be well? ( Of course prior to belt install). Thanks for input
I took the car to a mechanic and he's telling me I need a new head gasket. I'm skeptical b/c I didn't see any smoke from the engine or tail pipes. Is my skepticism valid?
ACURA OWNER FOR LIFE!!!!!
Yesterday I had our local garage come over and check it out. They replaced the Main Relay two hours later and it starts ok now. The main relay is located under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the plastic panel to gain access.
Hope this helps
I have always liked my friends GSR and a guy I work with has one he is selling. A 2000 GS-R for 5500. The only issue I have is that the car has 138k miles on it. I know the car is worth the money, but I am kind of leary about the miles. Can anyone help me with how long the VTEC engines last mileage-wise and what expenses I might take on given the cars age and miles??? Thanks in advance for any advice you all can give.
Thanks for your time.
I have not tried changing the relay, but I have found that the butterfly valve that is on the end of the throttle cable is the area of problem, atleast it seems that way for mine. It always restarts after tweaking this valve. My mech cleaned the mechanism and that solve it for a few days, but then the issue came back again.
I have found that moving the throttle valve cable or depressing the valve in front will sometime solve the issue. I have pictures and can explain better if one is interested.
I have never had the problem when first starting up from over night or after sitting more than 30 mins. Just once warmed or after stop and starts. Always though at the most in inconvenient times!!!
I love the 1990-1992 Integras, looking to get another in the near future. May have found one with one 56k miles. I get excellent gas mileage and low cost for insurance! I just wish Acura would go back to the liftback version!
I can explain in more detail and send pics. Leave a message and will contact via email with pics
As for the expenses that may occur (and this is not all-inclusive) those that relate to the engine and related components include the radiator (had to replace mine 2x), the timing belt (normal upkeep), and the emission control devices. Other expenses may include the wheel bearings ( I will need those shortly), power window mechanisms and the A/C system.
* Found in:
o 1996-2000 UK Civic 1.8i VTi Acura Integra
* Displacement: 1797 cm3
* Compression: 10.0:1
* Power: 169 hp (124 kW) @ 8000 rpm & 128 ft·lbf (174 N·m) @ 7500 rpm
* Transmission: S9B
I believe your engine is the same as a USDM GS-R. If you're having trouble after installing an axle, make sure that you fit the axle in all the way. If it's sticking out 1/2 way it might pop out of your transmission, or worse, make an annoying noise which you're probably hearing.
Any idea on the problem..Catalytic converter??? Any help would be appreciated.
I was sure it was the butterfly valve on the front end of the intake ( I have a FI engine) because I could tweak this valve and the light would reset. But once warm or run for a longer than normal time it seemed to come back on.
anyways, have them run a test on the distributer, also have them pull the codes. The distributer is pricey about $250 for a OEM. Good luck if not fixed already
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 GSR, 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.
