It could be anything from faulty coils, injectors, head gasket. Did the car over heat? Has it been regularly maintained, is it low on oil?

SOURCE: acura integra 1990 turns over fine but doesnt start

for you to check if it is the fuel pump, see if there is fuel running out of the hose if you remove the fuel filter. Another is to directly connect the pump to the battery. If the pump works that way, then it could be a efi relay issue which is found underneath the dash or a wiring issue.

SOURCE: 98 acura integra.....not getting spark to

is there power at the coil's electrical connector(key must be set to ON? Is some of your warning lights not lit(that normally light-up when key is on) such as airbag, abs, engine, battery etc??? If you answer yes to any of this, your ignition switch has failed. Acura/Honda models 97-02 have a recall on this in 2002 approx 1.5million vehicles affected. Symtoms include, intermitted speedometer/tach fluctuating to zero while car is in motion, intermitted stalling or no start(symtoms increase in hotter weather). The electrical contacts on these ignition switches are faulty causing shorts and archs within. Therefore power supply to vital engine electrical components are cut off. If this is the case, call your local Acura/Honda dealer with your vin# at hand, your vehicle may qualify for a free repair. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!

Why does my car stalls when the chk eng light comes on? Press gas pedal and car barely moves.

You describe a symptom that most often is related to malfunctioning / failing Throttle Position Sensor. Check engine codes and reference them to a OBD II code reader, you can use a inexpensive code reader from a Discount Auto Parts store... If code references TPS sensor replace and reset codes... hope this helps...
