The two solutions do not apply to my Acura, last year a ney starter was fitted, Ijumped the car, but it still did not start. The car had given no problems up to now, the check engine and maint/reqd lights comes on but they go out shortly after.

Yes if fuel pump is faulty,then this types of problems occur.To confirm if the fuel pump is faulty.Get the fuel pressure checked,.If the fuel pressure is low then its faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter.Both has to be replaced. ------- But if fuel pressure checks ok then there are many other possibilities too for this problem:---

1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.

2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.

3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.

5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

----------

Also one more thing.As you mentioned in your question that,check engine light comes and goes.This is a indication of error code stored in the car computer.If the problem repeats again n again then it's advisable to get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code. As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring. For more help: --- at www.autozone.com it's absolutely free to get car scanned.

1992 acura,my car wont start,not even cranck . head lights,and dashboard work, but dont cranck.


What happenes when you try to jump start the vehicle? If it starts - then it is most likely the battery or alternator. If it doesn't start then the solenoid or the starter or the engine. To get it down to the starter or engine - disconnect the serpentine belt and turn the crankshaft with a wrench. If it turns - then it is your starter/solenoid.

I replaced the battery in my 2003 Acura TL a month ago. I had no problems with it until last week when it wouldn't start; after a few minutes it started and again, no problems until yesterday. Now when I...


I suspect the problem lies in your starter. When a battery goes bad, it can cause surges that can adversely affect the rest of the electrical system, causing different components to go bad. If you've done a load test on your battery and it is functioning correctly, then you'll need to have the starter tested and / or replaced. The single click implies the solenoid is working correctly but the armature in the starter is not turning. If your starter is expensive, you may be able to have a mechanic replace the armature in your starter. If you choose this option, have the mechanic replace the brushes in the starter as well.

Car won't start right away.


The clicking is the solenoid in your starter, you need to check your battery terminals, then check your starting voltage with a multi meter on DC volts, put the leads on your battery terminals if your battery voltage is dropping below 11 volts you need to get a new battery.... you need to check the connections to your starter....

My 1995 Acura Integra starts running roughly at 3500 rpms. Kept below 3500 rpms, it runs fine with no problems. It just started doing this. Never before. It seems there is somekind of govenor that kicks in...


If the fuel filter hasn't been changed in the last 2 years, that is a good place to start. Also,have you given it a full tune-up recently? those are the easy suggestions. Typically the major stuff shows up with a "check engine light" indication. My '97 Civic acted similarly to this, and it ended up being the fuel filter(at 167,00 miles). Cap/rotor/plugs or other ignition system faults will also limit high rev performance. When in doubt, Autozone will check your computer system for no charge if you're concerned about sending good money after bad.

Car wont start; jumped successfully once; wont start again; battery fine


1. Start solenoid stuck: remove minus battery cable. Remove starter. Remove solenoid and clean and lightly grease the slide.
2. Go to most Auto Parts Stores for a free test.
3. If the battery connections and Block Ground connections are not clean, make them clean.
4. Only clean the positive connection at the starter After removing the battery minus connection.
5. Use 150 grit sand paper to clean the small solenoid lead. If you must remove the small bolt be very sensitive of your applied pressure, these small bolts break and strip easily.
SAFETY: The last connection made is always the negative/minus battery connection for all starter related repairs. These wires will burn you if the battery is not safely disconnected and best when wrapped by a rag or paper towel.
Good Luck.

95 Acura Integra starting problem


This happened to me on a 95 Integra GSR and the entire starter did not need to be replaced, just the solenoid pieces. They get old and worn down and the plunger no longer makes a good connection with them, hence the "click". Replace the solenoid panels and sand the plunger and your good as new. You can find instructions for this on the net, just do a search for it.
