    if you crank it dont start, you need to push gas pedal to get it started, but when you let it go the car just turns off, the problem was the water pump, i changed it and put the timing belt back, but dont have the other three belts on, some people saying it might be a sencor ?????

    well ..

    when i start the car and pushing the gas pedal the car sounds ok like its working but when i let it go its just shots off, so i guess the motor should be good then

    can it be sencor or something else, maybe i can check something, becouse i didnt brake anything really.

    when i was installing the belt i mooved the upper chrankshuft and i put it back in place by instruction thats the only thing what happend wrong, can you sugest something

    First you might want to throw the belts back on. Your car needs the alternator to keep the battery charged when it is running. When you took your timing belt off did you mark where the cam pulley and other pullys were to make sure nothing moved. If not there is a good chance your timing has moved and you will have to reset it. Your car has what is known as an Interferance engine. Basically it means that if the timing belt breaks the pistons will collide with the valves and this is not a good thing in cars.

    Can you tell me more about how long it takes. Is it a hard start? Alot of cranking or flashes up right away the first time?

Yeah its sounding like you have your timing out, when you put your foot to the floor your increasing your air / fuel and it can compensate some for your problem but soon as you let it try and idle it stalls. You will have to go back to your timing belt and double check your timing marks. Your local parts store will be able to sell you a simple repair manual that will walk you through it step by step.

97 acura integra brake lights stay lite and won't go off when the key is out of the iginiton. I have pressed the brake pedal but the lights do not go out.

Look at the upper area of the brake pedal, there is a brake light switch near the brake pedal. On upper side of the brake pedal, there is a plastic part that is worn out and missing. If you see a round hole at the brake pedal, the plastic part came off and missing. You can buy the missing plastic part from the dealer or make one. You will need to plug the hole for the switch to turn off the brake light.

suggest the first thing you do, is to pull the codes off the ECM, and go from there...more than likely it's a TPI, idle sensor or fuel pump relay thats dirty or sticking thats causeing the problem...
Your local AutoZone can perform the scan and explain the results to of charge.
Good luck, hope this helps,please rate me a fixya.

I have a acura integra ls 97 a need a code for my radio please if you have a code contact me at 203 772 9651 o give mea text msj plase

You need to get the serial number off the sticker attached to the radio. It will require pulling apart your dash. Call an Acura dealership with that serial number and they should be able to provide you the code. Or you can take it directly to the dealer but you will be charged labor.
