Sumbody help please. I got a 90 Acura Integra. the car recently
Started while warmed up, the tack drops to zero and i lose power, then i get the power back, and the it drops to zero again. Eventually the engine shuts down and i have to pull over. One the car cools down it will start up and i can drive it again. Then it warms up and does it again. It has been getting progressively worse over the last few days. someone took the coverter off and cleaned it all out and that didn't work. Any suggestions. other than the distributor that was replaced last august? Thanks

Same thing happen to my car, it was the distributor. FIRST CHECK YOUR PLUG WIRES TO YOUR DISTRIBUTOR BECAUSE ONE OF MY FACTORY WIRE DOES NOT HAVE A GOOD FIT. THE LACK OF CONNECTION BURNED OUT THE METAL CONNECTOR IN THE WIRE. I REPLACE WITH PERFORMANCE PLUG WIRES.

The clicking is the solenoid in your starter, you need to check your battery terminals, then check your starting voltage with a multi meter on DC volts, put the leads on your battery terminals if your battery voltage is dropping below 11 volts you need to get a new battery.... you need to check the connections to your starter....
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!!
