If you're car shakes every time you brake my guess is your rotors are done. You can try to resurface them if they're not too eaten up... otherwise you should just upgrade/replace them.
If your car is a manual and you dont want to be constantly resurfacing your rotos I recommend NOT braking in neutral. Yes, you heard me . Just leave your car in gear when you're braking and than don't pop the clutch in until you're about to stall out. I'v had so many friends that dont know how to drive and refuse to take my advice and suffer a similar fate as your shaking car.

Thanks, bdog for the suggestion. I'll give it a look. I guess I am a little concerned about staying small b/c of the saftey factor, but not so concerned that I want a big gas guzzler. I feel that the handling of my Integra & especially its fast braking has saved me from several accidents.

#775 of 1037 Sudden shutdown of the car
Feb 07, 2006 (11:03 am)
Hi all. Can someone please help? I have a 98 Integra GS-R, and it has run excellent without problems and I do the routine maintenance work on it. The other day, I was driving on the freeway about 70-80mph, when the car just shut down completely. The tach and speedometer just went down and the car shut down, basically leaving me crusing in neutral as you would if you just let the parking brake off while parked and cruised in neutral down a hill. When the car shut down, the radio stayed operational, but NONE of the lights on the dash came on. I tried to start the car three times to no avail. Each time, the car cranked very well, but would not ignite. After waiting a minute, the car finally started and I drove off and haven't had the problem since. Soon after, I had the battery and alternator checked, and those both checked out very good. I asked around and was told possibly the fuel relay, distributor or ignition coil. Does anyone have any idea what could have happened? Or yet, can anyone speak from experience? Thanks for reading and thanks for your help!

No, it shakes when the car is stopped, like at a red light or something. it has been shaking even worse and it hasnt been runing right lately have any cluse on what it could be? Also when it gets cold out the keys get stuck in the ignition of the car do you know what that could be from?
#777 of 1037 Accura RSX and Mazda 3
Feb 10, 2006 (4:31 pm)
Had my Type S in for Service and I rented a Mazda 3, regular gas. After driving the Mazda for 3 days,it has zoom zoom ,but my RSX Type S gets way better gas mileage and I use premium. It's really a wash,except for the high end torque,Type S has way more zoom zoom.
I live in Maine, so I drive to NH for service.They wanted to keep car as my driver's side seat, after 20k cracked.They wanted to replace it.
The Mazda cornered well and was very responsive,but not the same build quality of an Accura.The Mazda's ride was stiff,but more comfortable than my car.
In order to get heated seats you have to buy your RSX S in Canada. The Mazda 2.3 comes with leather and with heated seats, I wonder how M.P.G. you get though.
I don't know,if I was to buy again,I'd get a base RSX 160 H.P. 5 spd.I wish they still made the Integra.

You own a 94 Integra yet a 06 Mazda 5 does not have enough upgrades for you? What sort of upgrades did you have in mind?
I've had my Mazda 5 for about 2 months now and also own a 90 Integra GS. I purchased my Integra brand new and have proudly owned it ever since.
The Mazda 5 is about the same length as my Integra, narrower then my Integra, yet through enhancements in design and engineering is so much roomier inside. The Mazda 5 really handles like a car, the brakes are strong, the engine is really responsive, overall performance is very good. However, what you gain in performance you lose in mileage. The 5 seems a bit on the thirsty side even though I havent been driving it hard. With that said I would still recommend the Mazda 5 to anyone. The 5 has to be one of the best values out there, you get alot for what you pay.
One thing that alot of people forget to mention about the early 90's Integra's is how good they were on gas. They are cheap to run.
By the way there is one thing in common between your Integra and the Mazda 5, they are both built in Japan.

could be a vacuum leak or something to do with the fuel/air delivery (clogged injectors, relay, etc.). Idle problems have a huge range of possibilites. It could even be your TPS sensor.
#781 of 1037 1995 Integra LS-Engine Code
Feb 15, 2006 (10:17 pm)
I'm new in the Acura Integra scene . So far what I've found out is that 1995 Acura Integra LS has B18B1 motor in it. Is that correct? Can I see the engine codes anywhere on the motor itself? Is it easy to put mods on this engine to bring output to about 180-210 horses?
