Car: Acura, Integra, 1992     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Acura Integra Repair Manuals

Q.i have a 1992 acura integra Ls. i bought it used about a year ago, and have always had trouble with it starting right after i have driven it. last night when getting off the fwy the engine turned off and it when i pulled over to try and start it but when i turn the key it kind of makes a kind of grinding sound as it tried to turn over... any ideas? it does have oil, gas and its not over heating...

Answer Grinding sound - sounds like starter relay when there is not enough amp. power. Meaning your battery connection may be bad. Check your battery wires.
If car dies unexpectedly - pretty good chance your main relay may have solder cracks on it. This thing hunted me for a long time. Described here:

Let me know if any of this apply to your situation!
