Hi GailKol

Is there a yellow light on the dash? Is the car very slow and struggles to rev?

It sounds to me that the ECU (car computer) is in 'limp home' mode. You need to read the ECU's code, usually by the ECU flashing lights, then look at the manual for the reason.

First up, reset the ECu by removing the negative battery lead for 30 minutes or remove the large 75AMP fuse. Run the car and see if the light returns or that it is still consuming too much gas. Then...>

One of the most common reasons for poor gas mileage on Acuras/Hondas is the O2 sensors in the exhaust manifold. These can breakdown instantly and cause rough running and poor gas mileage. There are two on the two exhaust banches. If you change one it is best to change both.

Check the air filter for dirt, clean it or buy a new one.
Take the air filter housing off and run car cleaner through the intake manifold.
Clean the EAVC valve which is in the intake manifold while you are there.
Drive the car and take you hands off the wheel, if it pulls to one side then the brakes are seized (usually rear ones) and needs overhaul/new ones, this will cause very poor gas mileage.

Check the cheap/free stuff mentioned above first. I hope this helps and don't give up on your Acura. You have one of the best driver's cars there of the last 25 years :)....I'm very Honda biased :)

1992 honda integra horn fuse blows after applying brakes


Honda makes the Integra but it uses the Acura name in the US.
According to the wiring diagram the brake lights and horn are on the same circuit. So I would check the bulbs and sockets for a short.
The brake light switch also involves the cruise control system.

My 99 acura integra is buring through a ton of oil


More background information is required to completely understand your problem. Probable or possible causes of excessive oil consumption are as follows, ring job (complete engine overhaul) inadequate oil viscosity, or worn engine bearings. I would suggest you change you oil to higher grade such as, 10w30 and try the high mileage brand, if you are currently using the recommended 5w30.

Can i put a 1994 acura integra ls trans to replace a 1989 acura i


I don't think this would be possible wihtout some hassles.

The engine type build changed twice between the 89 and the 94 series integra.

I would suggest you speak to Honda specialised mechanic before you purchase the 94 tranny.

Also check out the Honda forums as they ahve guys who have done some handy things with the ol integra

When i was driving my 98 acura integra and it died


has the timing belt been verified OK. that would be the first thing to check. the oil would not make a difference, was the oil level really 1 qt over full, and did they charge you for 5 qts? if so I would want to talk to the service manger. the dealer, of all places ,should know how much oil their cars hold!. A lot of places charge for a flat fee for oil changes but will only fill it to the full mark. ( they arent ripping you off, just trying to make it easy so all oil changes are the same price)

Acura Integra is Hesitating when I apply the gas badly!


Cheapest possible solution is the fuel filter. it is a black canister on the firewall with two steel fuel lines going into it. Beyond that, it could be your fuel pump ($100+) or your distributor(200+) . Check all your vacuum hoses for leaks. It will have to be driven by a mechanic to determine the true diagnosis.
