Question about 1991 Acura Integra Hatchback

2 Answers

Engine is turning over but will not start...

I have a 1991 Acura Integra and it will not start. Usually when this happens its because its either not getting spark, or not getting fuel. I'm pretty sure I got spark so I replaced the fuel pressure regulator because its easy. I got a start and idle out of it, but wouldn't start again after that. Possibly a relay? I don't know much about thes cars and would like any help possible. Thanks.

    Thank you. I will do as you say and check the relay first. If there is no clicking, then the relay is or could be the problem, right? On the otherhand, a new fuel pump would require dropping the tank, correct? I don't know if I could do that...

    This was a great solution, but was already tried. I do believe now that it is the main relay.

Spray some starter fuild and/or a little fuel inside the throttle; if it begins to run but stalls shortly thereafter, your fuel pump will have to be replaced.

Yes! You will have to drop the gas tank to remove and replace the fuel pump.

Your public library will have a manual covering your mechanical repair. Moreover, they have the best automotive shops online software called AllData.

I think if u test the fuel pressure u will find u have none, a fuel pressure regulato will not cause a no start, if the car has over 100,000 miles the fuel pump is most likely the problem, replace it (it is located in the fuel tank). if u wish to check the fuel pump relay first follow these instructions:
The fuel pump relay is in the Main Relay attached to the firewall above the foot rest in the drivers foot well. When you turn on the key you should hear a clicking sound, you can feel the relay click if you feel around while turning the key on and off, with the keys turned on the relay will click on and then off in a few seconds..

I have an 1991 acura integra LS when I go to turn on the car all the lights turn on but the car does not turn over but while doing so I hear two clicks what does that mean

Usually this means your battery does not have enough power stored to crank the engine. Try jump starting it. If that works, then have your battery tested.

1991 acura integra stalls or wont start runs rough

Integra stalls because you need a tune-up. And have the timing checked. I bet you need a new distributor too. And have the ECM (car computer) checked as well.

You should check all of your cables coming off the intake manifold and the air filter box...

Check to see if they are all connected...most likely a vacuum issue to do with these cables...

also check to see if there are no tears / rips in the hoses or the connections

go to the nearest parts house and get you the main efi relay and the problem will go away.It's under the driver side dash .It's kinda hard to get to but trust me when you turn the key on that relay is not cutting the fuel pump on .Be good as new hope this has helped you and good luck!!!!
