Question about 1992 Acura Integra Hatchback
I have this problem on a regular basis with my 91.
it happens in hot weather, and sometimes after having to start and stop the car several times quickly(like going ot different stores over and over) again, in warmer weather, like 25 C+.
my problem though.
i start the car, it turns over and within the second it started it revs back down and cuts out.
then, when i put the keys back in, and to the second position just before cranking, my lights are on, and i get the s3 blinking, (which indicates a transmission malfunction, DO NOT START YOUR CAR OR DRIVE IT WHEN THIS LIGHT BLINKS, this is a transmission problem, but it is electronic, and runs your tranny really hard)
i would take the keys out, go read the paper for a few minutes or something, come back, put the keys in, and as long as that s3 light isnt blinking, the car starts fine.
the issue relating to gas would make sense, because if the engine doesnt get enough fuel it, well, shuts off. i have had injector issues before,(while applying gas nothing happens for a second) so i started using fuel injector cleaner every 4th or so fill-up.i have seen some better results, in driving as well.
try this, along with hitting your gas tank. BUT, hit your tank at your discretion, you dont want to accidentally cause damage, like maybe shake some electronics loose, which would cause even more problems

I had the same problem just the other day with my 92 integra, i just got to wrk and when i parked the car, i turned it off, i found a closer parking space and tried to start but it wouldnt i tried for almost 10 minz, it cranked and everything but wouldnt start. i took auto classes in high school and my teacher said that the fuel pump on older cars tend to stall, so with a small stick hit the gas tank from the bottom and that will get it going again and try starting it. to my luck it worked and it started perfectly. im not too sure about the check engine light, it hadnt occured on my integra.
hope this helps

Also forgot to say, it could be vapor lock, now im not exactly too clear on how this happens, but its basically engine gets too much air, not enough fuel, so it might tie in with the fuel injection
