Question about 1990 Acura Integra Hatchback

1 Answer

1990 acura, when it gets hot outside, the check engine light comes on and wont let me start my car. Happens after about 12 hrs of sitting outside. Starts fine in the morning on my way to work, but then when i get off, the check engine light is on, and it wont let me start the car. At all other times the car runs just fine. Starter is working well with engine sounding like going to start but doesnt. At times if i let the key in ignition, the light will go off, and then i can start the car up fine. How can i turn off the check engine switch to allow me to start car. stuck at work right now. Thanks

Unfortunately anything could be causing your check engine light to come one. You'll actually need to have it towed to autozone or someplace like that to have the car scanned to determine what is causing the issue

When the car is hot, and you turn the key, the check engine light goes out, but the car will not start. The fuel pump has been changed, but the problem is still there. What should we do?


It is your main relay. Go to Youtube and search acura legend main relay. The main relay is located by your feet above the steering column. The solder point in the relay are weak due to temperature in the car while sitting and the outside temp is high. Also do a google search. several schematics on location. I would tap mine while turning the key and it would fire right up. Best solution is to remove and resolder the joints that are bad. Visually you will know.

My 1990 acura integra wants to start but won't turn over. A couple of times it has started then dies. I'd keep trying to start it until it finally turns over and starts without dying. Could the fuel filter...


It's hard to know whether or not this is a fuel issue or a spark issue. Here is where I'd start:

Have a mechanic check your fuel pressure to make sure you're getting fuel. An intermittent starting issue could point to a clogged fuel filter. This would be more likely than the pump.

With the age of the car, a faulty main relay could also be the culprit. They are notoriously bad on Acuras of that age. The solder joints break and they will work one minute and not allow the car to start the next. (starter will turn the engine over but not "catch")

If this problem happens more often when the weather is hot or cold, it points toward the main relay. Good luck.

My 1990 integra starts only after sitting for a while like in the morning as soon as the weather gets hot and the car has been sitting it will crank over but won't start doesn't sounds like fuel pump is...


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).

check your FUEL relay. under the steering wheel. In mine the soldering cracked and as soon as the metal expands from the heat it looses contact. Cost $70 Good Luck :)

1990 acura


the ignition will come on as the engine will have stalled whats happening is when you press the brake the brake servo is taking all the vacuum out of the inlet manifold causing the engine to stall does your brake pedal feel ok because the usuall cause of this problem is the brake master cylinder is leaking brake fliud into the servo the fluid gets sucked into the inlet manifold causing it to get blown out of the exaust replace the master cylnder try again yates210456
