Question about 1991 Acura Integra Hatchback
First off I was having an issue with the car over heating due to the radiator fans not activating. After pulling and re installing the fan relay all was good. However, I am still having an issue that the motor has no power at large throttle openings. If I let the car idle in gear it will move and behaves normally up to about 1/8 throttle, but as soon as I press the accelerator any further the engine loses all revs and wants to die. If I don't let off the gas the engine will die.
Related parts replaced over the last 2 years: distributor assembly, pcv, spark plugs, air and fuel filters.
Any advice appreciated.
Check your timing and also your idle. Also, if your "check engine" light is on, get it tested or buy the diagnostic device from any auto parts store. Read the instructions and if you get a code you can look it up here or let me know what it is, that would help a lot. Your car is dying when accelerating because there is either too much fuel or oxygen in the chambers, so the mixture is not proportional and one of the two overcomes the lower one, thus not producing a proper balanced combustion inside your cylinders.
