I have a 96 Acura Integra 96. In cold weather, my car does not start. It was cranking over, but does not start.
I have changed the gas tank, distributor /cap, rotors, wires set, spark plugs, gas filter, flushed the radiator and coolant system, cleaned fuel injection.

1. Clean the cables on the battery, even if they don't appear to have much corrision it doesn't take much to prevent the alternator from charging the battery at it's peak level. When you're finished try to start the engine.
2. If it still will not start, try to find someone to give you a jump. Even if it's cranking it may not be providing the minimum speed needed to allow the engine to start. Having atleast the Minimum, " Cold cranking amps ", required by your vehicle is crucial, especially in cold/cooler weather.
If the vehicle starts with a jump you likely have an issue with your battery. Many parts stores will hook up a diagnostic machine to check your battery, alternator, and some will also check the starter for FREE.
Try holding the gas pedal down to the floor. Do not pump it, just hold it down and crank the engine.
Don't burn out the starter, but don't release the gas pedal, between cranks. That should flush out the excess gas and hopefully the engine will catch in the process, when the mixture is just right.
No guarantees for this one..
THE MAIN RELAY HAS BAD SOLDER CONNECTIONS TO THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD. THE HEAT IN THE CABIN ALLOWS THE CIRCUIT TO OPEN. I HAD LUCK RE-SOLDERING THE LEGEND'S RELAY AND DIDN'T SPEND THE $ ACURA WANTED.
YOU SHOULD HEAR THE PUMP WORK FOR A FEW SECONDS WHILE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS LIT (WHILE YOU CRANK).
I finally just had this fixed on my 1992 Integra, after dealing with it the past year or
so (same problem, and only in cold weather). They replaced the shifter switch (parts and labor
cost me $150), and it's been fine ever since, I'm very happy to say!
