Just changed all season tires to winter tires -1996 Acura Integra RS- now there is a squeeking noise that happens when driving slow or turning - also sound picks up speed when tires spin faster?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The squeaking noise may be due to the winter tires being stiffer and having different tread patterns than the previous all-season tires. This can cause friction and noise when driving slow or turning. It is also normal for winter tires to make more noise as they pick up speed, especially in cold temperatures. If the noise persists or worsens, it's recommended to have a professional mechanic inspect the tires for any issues.

Why is your maitenance required light on in a 1994 Acura Integra?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The maintenance required light in a 1994 Acura Integra typically indicates that the vehicle is due for its regular maintenance checkup. It could be triggered by reaching a certain mileage interval or when the vehicle's onboard computer detects a need for servicing. It's recommended to consult the owner's manual for specific information on what maintenance is required at this time.

What does this means when a 1992 acura integra makes clicking noise after letting go clutch into 1st gear but it moves fine but clicking before it moves?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The clicking noise after letting go of the clutch in 1st gear could be due to a worn-out CV joint or axle. The clicking noise indicates that there may be damage to the joints or components, and continued driving in this condition could lead to more severe issues. It is recommended to have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic to diagnose the exact cause of the clicking noise and to prevent further damage.

Why would a car stop running while driving then not turn over again?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Here is some advice from contributors:

  • Sometimes your car will just plain stop running if you have a faulty coil wire. I had this problem before where it didn't matter what time of day or the weather, it turned out to be a coil wire.
  • I have an automatic '94 Nissan Sentra that would stop at the strangest of times (while it was being driven) at least once or twice a week. It would drive me crazy. I would take a turn at a light, and right in the middle of the turn, the *car's power would go out and stop. The only thing that would work was the brakes (thank God!). And then I had to quickly start it up again and pray that it would get me home. This was especially embarrassing when I had a date in the car. Does this sound familiar? Well, I found out it was an electrical problem, as well as a fuel pump that needed to be replaced. Cost me a good $300 to fix. That was about 2 years ago so I'm sure prices haven't changed much.
  • My car used to just stop in the middle of the road, and then could restart no problems. It turned out to be that the alarm was old & faulty & the alarm was connected to an immobilizer which was a bit over-zealous - hence immobilizing in the middle of the road. The solution was simply to remove the alarm (the whole thing had to be removed though, it wasn't good enough just to turn it off).
  • Because the gasket plate (insulator) is worn out, this happened to my 1984 Honda Accord. .
  • I have a 96 dodge caravan and it would do some of the same things. Sometimes it would not start in the morning wait a few min. and then it would start, sometimes it would just cut out while driving. The solution after all the relays were changed was a new computer. It was covered under a Chrysler 8 year warranty. lucky me as it saved me $1000.
  • I had my 92 Oldsmobile fixed it turned out to be torque converter needed to be replaced now the car works.
  • if your alternator goes, no more power the engine will stop...
  • This is a problem with a lot of vehicles that is overlooked for this reason: when a mechanic will hook up their computer and download the codes from the car's computer, the codes will generally tell you the problem the car or truck is having, if the car or truck kicked a code to the computer. Then the car or truck will run through a diagnostic system check and when the system check comes back fine and there are no problems then what?
  • Sometimes the problem can not be found by the computer and the reason is that when the car or truck runs it's system check, everything checks out fine! How can this be when the vehicle just stops running and then starts running after you pull to the side of the road and shut it down for a couple of minutes?The answer is simple.The ignition relay acts like a breaker in a house; when you have a relay that is weak, you will get this problem. But the computer will test it as good because it still is good.It's just weak, making it trip.The reason it will start again is because the relay will automatically reset itself after the relay cools and you are off and running again.To explain the type of reaction your car or truck would experience if this were to happen is as follows:The car or truck will just plain die! no warning!IT WILL NOT spit and sputter like it is running out of gas. Now, a module for the distributor will act the same way, but the difference is that the car or truck will not continue to start after a period of time.My suggestion is a cheap way to fiqure this out: purchase a continuity tester at any local hardware store (they are only a couple of dollars) and check the leads coming from the distributer mod. If it is good, it will light up the continuity tester. If it is bad, it won't. This only works if the car will not run at all because the mod will check good if it is weak as well as the ignition relay.Another way to fiqure this out is to go to a local junk yard and pick up a distributer mod and a ignition relay and it will cost you maybe the better part of $10.00 and you may be worry free as long as you own the car with the used part.But if you feel uncomfortable putting used parts into the ingnition system, then replace one or the other but not both and see which one works and then buy new.
  • Check your computer for trouble codes.Any problem will be stored in the computer,even if it is intermittent.
  • Usually it is some type of fuel pick up problem, or fuel filter. It is possible the engine was slightly flooded, causing it to loose power. This all happened to me when i had an 1987 Corvette. One day i was driving, then it just stalled when i was on a local road. Thank god not on a freeway, cause when it stalled, the steering became locked up. But i did what the manual told me to do, if the engine has became flooded, push the accelerator to the floor and crank the engine. And that go me going again, and strait to the mechanics. It was all in fuel pick up and i need a new fuel filter.
  • Just replace the distributor cap and roter. I had same problem in my Honda accord 98.
  • My car stopped all of the sudden while driving. When I tried to start it, it started but within seconds the engine would turn off. So my car had to be towed. The problem happened to be the ignition switch which eventually had to be replaced with a new one. It cost me about $600.
  • I had a 1990 Honda civic that would not start when the ambient temperature got high. I diagnose it and found that the base of the fuel pump relay situated just behind the dash had a poor solder connection.I re-soldered the connection and it was the end of my problem. Just thought you could possibly have the same problem.
  • Most common problem I have found is the idle control value (aka. idle stepper motor). It sets the idle for the engine control computer. It bypasses the throttle plate. They get gummed up, I believe from PCV fumes.This has caused intermittent low idle/dying and start-up problems. The gum prevents it from responding fast enough. My Porsche had low cold idle. My Tahoe required tap on accelerator to start (usually flick of key). My Range Rover intermittent dying & inconsistent low idle. All idle control valve. FIX: Remove it and clean the spring/plunger with Carb cleaner. Also take cotton swab and clean seating area with cleaner. Sometimes replacement is necessary, mine have ranged from about $45 to $125 depending on vehicle and source.
  • I had a Vauxhall Carlton 2.0i which would stop for no apparent reason. It was driving me mad. Just couldn't find the cause. In desperation, took it to the main dealer. He put in new plug leads, new distributor cap, new plugs, and 'tuned' it. It did exactly the same the next day. Back to the garage.In the end I found it myself. Locate your Fuel Injector Relay in your fuse and relay box. When your car stops, pull this relay out, and tap it sharply. Re-insert it, and if the car starts again, that's your problem. Apparently the inside circuit board breaks down, and a new relay is the only answer. Intermittent faults like this are a total pain. In fairness the dealer gave me a full refund for the work that they had done. someone else.

Why will a car not turn over if there is power and the starter and alternator are new?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Internal combustion engines need 3 things to start and run: air, fuel, and spark. First look over all of your fuses, to make sure none of them such as the fuel pump fuse, or the fusable link have burned out. Make sure your battery is not faulty, even a brand new battery could potentially be no good. Check the voltage with your volt or multi meter, it should read around 12.5v. Inspect the cables to and from the battery and alternator, but sure they are properly installed. Check your air induction system, make sure the air filter is nice and clean, no blockages. If your vehicle is equipped with a MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) make sure it is plugged in correctly. Likewise if your vehicle is equipped with a MAP (manifold absolute pressure sensor) be sure that is plugged in correctly. Visually inspect the entire length of the intake piping, for loose clamps, cracked piping, or gaps. Once you have completed that if your vehicle has a distributor system, remove the distributor cap and replace it if necessary. If you see any visible damage to the spark plug wires, or the age of them is unknown replace them. Next check your spak plugs for the correct gap as recommended by the manufacturer, be sure they are in good shape before reinstalling them. If the vehicle still will not start, try replacing your fuel filter. This is usually inline, though in some cases it is in the fuel tank itself. Once that is completed turn the key to the accessory position, in most vehicles you should hear the fuel pump turn on and prime the lines for starting. If you do, you should be in good shape at this point.

Can you convert an automatic transmission to a manual in a 1994 Acura Integra and if you can what changes need to be made?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, it is possible to convert a manual into an automatic. I converted my automatic integra into a manual. It runs smooth as silk. To tell you the truth and not to discurage you, it would be easier to sell your manual or even trade it for somebodys automatic. There are many Integra lovers that would love to get their hands on a manual. If this is not possible here it goes. It will be even more expensive to convert to an automatic than it is to convert to a manual.Why? There are more electoronic components involved versus the manual.(sensors, shift lock, ect.) These are the parts: 1: Automatic transmission with sensors 2: torque converter and plate 3: automatic mid shaft(manual's is different) 4: shift cable 5: automatic pedal set (brake and gas) 6: automatic shifter complete with interlock switch and harness 7: automatic cluster 8: automatic ecu 9: automatic flywheel cover 10: rear transmission bracket and the lower transmission bracket( the manual ones is different ( trust me I know) You will also need the top transmission mount and the top transmission frame bracket that you can purchase at Acura for about $50. You will have to cut the manual off the frame, grind the welds down and weld the auto bracket in place. 11: You will need a wheel saw to cut away at the center console where the manual shifter is. you need to make room for the manual shifter and the shift cable 12: The center shift console needs to be changed as well. The manual one is smaller. 13: You need the auto flywheel plate bolts, the manual one are longer. 14: you need the automatic starter as well. 15: you need the automatic radiator, the manual one does not have the tranny oil cooler in it. 16: The only other thing brother is the electrical. You need to run two wires to the shift lock, the reverse wires to the auto shifter, the cruise controll to the auto shifter and you should be set and ready to cruise. Now the only thing left is for who to do the install?

Why does your 96 Acura Integra make a short groaning noise from the engine bay randomly when running?

Been wondering that myself for years. I was just looking under my hood for an unrelated issue and it made the noise.

The mystery continues...

How do you locate and change the main relay on a 1992 Integra?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Main relay to what? There is no "main relay". You have multiple relays for a variety of functions. There is what may be considered a main relay, it is a "circuit opening relay". It controls the function of a variety of circuits (I.E. fuel pump, ECM, starter). Goto AutoZone.com and look up your vehicle and see if their website gives you the location for this relay.

Actually there is a Main relay it is under the steering coluum it is a 10mm bolt that holds the hazard flashers and the Main relay it is a burnt brown color easy to fix best way is to take the kick panel off (the 2 Phillip screws) and a couple clips and you will a little black box and behind it there is the Main relay =)

How do you remove the gauge cluster in a 1991 Acura Integra?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

fist and foremost, make sure you have ample daylight to do this, i learned the hard way. first you take out the speedo cable from the transmission, and feed it through the firewall, not all the way though. then you unscrew the pannels from under the steering wheel, glove box, and take out the shifter cover. there are two screws outside of the guage cluster that you have to remove. take off the a/c and a/c temp. control and there should be 3 screws, take those out. there is a screw hidden behind a tiny panel on the bottom most right part of the black dash panel, take that screw out as well. now you should be able to remove the whole black dash panel as one whole peice. unclip all of the switches from the back of the panel and remove it from your work area. there are 4 screws holding on the guage cluster that also needs to be removed. be careful pulling out the guage cluster because there are two clips or three clips depending on model that need to be removed as well. also, be careful not to pull the speedo cable off the connector, i also learned that the hard way. now you should be able to replace the cluster and just back track these steps to put it all back together

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 96 Acura Integra?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

underneath the dash, easy to see if you remove the bottom area of the dash below the steering wheel. its brown colored.

This location is likely the same for 94 and newer Integras.

In a 1994 Acura Integra, the relay was about the size of a twinkie though not as long and located slightly lower and to the left of the fuse panel which you can see by taking off the fuse access panel. It has a grey case and rust-colored wiring harness with 7 wires. A large metal tab is attached to the housing which bolts to some sheet metal. All useful marking face the firewall. Part number is likely RZ-0132.

If you are trying to locate the relay due to a problem with starting/restarting the car on hot days or when using the heater in winter and like DIY solutions try this: remove the relay from the vehicle. Carefully separate the housing from the relay guts. Grab a soldering iron and reheat all of the points on the circuit board and add a little solder if you have some on hand. In the 94 integra there was a hairline crack in the solder around one of the points. After re-melting with the iron the intermittent problem went away. They relay fires when the key is turned to "on" to prime the fuel system and clicks off when the check engine light extinguishes. By placing your hand on the installed relay, you should feel the unit click on with the key and click off when the check engine light goes off. When I was having the intermittent starting problems, the relay would not click on/off when the key was turned to "on."

Can you swap a B20 in a 91 integra LS with stock transmission?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes. The 91 ls came with a b18 and that engine shares it's block with the b20. The new engine will drop in, but you will have to swap out some of the parts off of your old engine such as intake manifold, distributer, fuel rail, etc. The only modification you will need will be to extend the temp sensor wires to reach the new location by the thermostat housing as your old sensor is on the rear of the block. You can use your old motor mounts, transmission, harness, belt etc. on the new engine, and any bolt on modifications for the original engine will fit the b20 as well. The transmission bolts right up with no problems.

What is a throttle position sensor?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is basically a rheostat. Here is how Merriam Webster defines it: ; Main Entry: : rheo·stat ; Pronunciation: : \ˈrē-ə-ˌstat\ ; Function: : noun ; Date: : 1843 : a resistor for regulating a current by means of variable resistances

Basically, the TPS offers variable resistance depending on the winding or unwinding of its actuator. When you goose the throttle, or take your foot off the gas, the TPS tells your vehicle's computer where the throttle is. Look under your hood at your fuel rail or throttle body. on one side you will see the terminus of the throttle cable and the cam around which the cable is wound. Directly on the opposite side of the throttle body from here, you will see the TPS.
