Question about 1991 Acura Integra Hatchback

1 Answer

My acura integra's heat doesnt work. It was stuck on cold last week so i pushed it until it gave way. It felt like there was no tension in the control( i could move it back and forth freely). It has since regained tension but even if its on hot or cold it now only shoots out cold air.

It sound slike the connection between the lever and the heater core has come loose.

You are going to have to find the heater core and check the cabling connected to it...

Unfortunately this is situated underneath the dash and will require a bit of work...

Sorry to bear the bad news.

96 Integra blower works but limited heat produced

It sounds like the engine coolant thermostat might be stuck in the open position, if your heat gauge is reading cold that is likely the problem...You should be able to find a you tube video about changing the thermostat, it's fairly easy.

Ac Belt diagram for a 1997 Acura intrega


Inspect the drive belt(s) every 30,000 miles or 24 months. Determine the belt tension at a point halfway between the pulleys by pressing on the belt with moderate thumb pressure. If the deflection is found to be too much or too little, perform the tension adjustments.
On some Acura models it will be necessary to work from beneath the vehicle when servicing the accessory drive belts.
Before adjusting, inspect the belt to see that it is not cracked or worn. Be sure that its surfaces are free of grease and oil. If contamination is present, belt replacement is recommended.

  1. Push down on the belt halfway between pulleys with a force of about 20 lbs. The belt should deflect: 0.16-0.41 in. (4-11mm)-on Integra and 0.22-0.45 in. (5.5-11.5mm) on all other models.
  2. Adjust the belt tension by loosening the adjusting bolts.
  3. Next loosen any mounting bolts and/or nuts that may hinder adjustment.

3.0CL models have automatic tensioners therefore no belt adjustment is required.
  1. To adjust the alternator belt tension on Integra, loosen the adjustment lock bolt and move the alternator with a prybar positioned against the front of the alternator housing.

WARNING Do not apply pressure to any other part of the alternator or damage may occur.
  1. To adjust the tension on all other accessory drive belts (all Acura models except 3.0CL), loosen the adjustment lock bolt and turn the adjusting bolt (if applicable) as required.

Do not over tighten any of the belts. Damage to the pulley's bearings may result.
  1. After obtaining the proper tension, tighten the adjustment lock bolt.
  2. Tighten all other bolts and/or nuts that were loosened in the adjustment process.

Many Acura models are equipped with a theft deterrent audio system. Make sure you have the necessary code before disconnecting the battery.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the driven accessory's pivot and mounting bolts.

If removing the alternator belt on a 3.0CL, pull back on the belt tensioner with a commercially available tool.
  1. Remove the belt.
  2. Install the belt by moving the accessory toward or away from the engine until the tension is correct. You can use a wooden hammer handle, or broomstick, as a lever, but do not use anything metallic, such as a prybar. Certain models may utilize an adjusting bolt to do this work for you. Simply loosen the mounting bolt and turn the adjuster.

On 3.0CL pull back on the tensioner to install the belt, the tension is automatically set.
  1. Tighten the bolts and recheck the tension. If new belts have been installed, run the engine for a few minutes, then recheck and readjust as necessary

Runs 5 minutes then dies. Won't start until engine is cold.

Try the WD-40 spray in intake of throttle body with air intake hose off, to see if it will kick at all, even for a second or 2. We need to confirm whether your losing fuel or spark when it dies. Ignition & fuel, can cause similar symptoms in this case.

Radio code for Acura Integra LS-SE 1996

Well, ive solved my own radio problem LoLz! On my 1996 Acura Integra LS-S the serial number is located on the back of the radio. The dealership told me to bring it in and they will remove my radio for $9O. That's ridiculous.If you can remove it yourself then you save ninety dollars. Or just do what i did...I squeezed my lil a** under the steering wheel and peeked behind the indash thingy where the radio is held and with a flashlight i was just barely able to see the serial number. I dont know if the serial numbers are all the same for all the makes, models and years like mine. But heres what i got. The serial number is: PH22481 the code for the radio is 26162. I called my local Honda dealer and gave the serial number and they gave me the code over the phone. If it doesnt work try disconnecting the battery for about 6O seconds and try again. Good luck and i hope this helps. FOR I FINALLY HAVE MUSIC!!!! YAY!!!
