If you heard a click when you cranked it, that's usually a dead battery. But, you need to check the oil level. I've had 2 RSX's that jumped time because the oil level dropped too low.

The tensioner on the timing chain is hydraulically controlled, if the oil level drops the tensioner looses tension and the chain jumps time. Its an extensive and expensive repair.

replace de ignition module first.. if still wont start good chances is the crank sensor is located behind the timing belt.. my 94 legend use to do the same thing until i replace the crank sensor.. and also if u can afford i will suggest u to replace the main fuel relay too... all this is after u are 100 pcnt sure that ur fuel pump is working....

SOURCE: 93 acura legend just replaced alternator and

I f the car turned over before you replaced the alternator then maybe the problem is not the alternator but ignition issues, sometime the igniton module goes on these cars without warning my advise would be to remove one of the spark plugs to check for spark, remove wire then plug in plug to wire lay the plug on a part of the motor that is metallic, have an assistant turn the car over and try to start look to see if plug has a blue spark or purple don't do test in direct sunlight. If a good spark is seen go on to next test stick your finger into the hole where the spark plug goes have an assistant turn motor over you should hear and feel alot of pressure trying to push your finger out of hole if you don't feel a good deal of pressure you probably broke the timing belt and the cylinder head must be removed and rebuilt because of the nature of the designed interference engine (valve gets hit by piston bending it when timing belt breaks) good luck

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

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.

I had exactly same thing on my boat recently...which has a car motor in it. And I also charged the battery and I also had a reading that said I had charge. HOwever, I tried another battery from a car and it suddenly worked. Don't know why, but it really was the battery. When I put the old one back in, it still wouldn't start. With a new battery it's fine. Ya just never know why sometimes!! Good luck!

My 89 acura legend will not start it makes no noise when i try to start it it doesnt make any sound when i try to start it i checked all my fuses there all fine i pulled out my starter and had it checked...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I strongly suggest that you check or replace the positive cable going to the starter. It can be broken inside that's why there's no current going to the starter. I believe you'll be good after.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2000 Acura Integra LS. The car started this morning and now it wont start. It will turn over and its getting gas, but still wont start up. I put in new spark plugs and still the same result. any...


A few things you may want to try;

1. Clean the cables on the battery, even if they don't appear to have much corrision it doesn't take much to prevent the alternator from charging the battery at it's peak level. When you're finished try to start the engine.

2. If it still will not start, try to find someone to give you a jump. Even if it's cranking it may not be providing the minimum speed needed to allow the engine to start. Having atleast the Minimum, " Cold cranking amps ", required by your vehicle is crucial, especially in cold/cooler weather.
If the vehicle starts with a jump you likely have an issue with your battery. Many parts stores will hook up a diagnostic machine to check your battery, alternator, and some will also check the starter for FREE.

I hope this helps you get your car going.

I have an 1998 acura slx. It will not start after replacing the old battery? All it does is click when I turn it over?


Check connections to make sure they are free of corrosion and tight, including connection at starter. If all connections are tight and clean, check the battery. Even if it's new, there is a chance you purchased a defective one. You can bring it to a parts store for a free check. If it checks out ok, you may have a starter problem. Pull it, and again, bring to the parts store, they can check its' condition off the vehicle to see if it's operating properly,
