#983 of 1037 1997 Acura Integra GS 2 Door Hatchback
Jun 17, 2007 (1:43 am)
I'm looking to buy this car. I have read a few things here that seem helpful but nothing specific in this model so far from what i read there are no major complaints. I would really appreciate as much information that i can gather on this car from experience owners or Acura's aficionados. The car is an automatic, one owner, l12,000 miles, and no accidents. Some guy wrote that Japanese automakers are bad with automatic transmissions I tend to disagree since I own a 1987 Toyota Camry and boy that car is a soldier after 200,000 miles. I thinks is the fact that by having a manual trans you have a better feel for the car is a 2 in 1 with the car type of feeling as least that's what I think. Thanks in advance for the help!

Did you ever find out about the whole fuse box code thing???
I am trying to decipher my 94 acura electronic fuse box. I want to install a radio and speakers, but the power line is just not sending any source to the radio... Let me know what you found out or did, please!!!!
#985 of 1037 Power Steering Fluid Leak
Jul 02, 2007 (5:59 am)
I just noticed the PS fluid is right on the "Low" line of the reservoir, and there seems to be oil seepage on the pipe that comes out of the reservoir.
Is this something I should be concerned about? Is it ok to just top off the PS fluid. (I think it's a small leak - not more than a cup or so every few months). How expensive is it to fix?
I just bought a bottle of PS fluid for Honda cars (have not added it to my car yet). In the store, I noticed another brand of PS fluid that says it's safe for all cars and that it stops leaks. Is it advisable to use the type that stops leaks? (I'm a bit worried since my owners manual says to use only Honda fluid or else damage is possible).
I've a 94 Integra LS.

Actually I last checked this and the oil seepage is not on the ends of the rubber hose, but on the pump itself. Any ideas if it'll be expensive to fix?
#987 of 1037 Non Functioning Instrument Panel and climate control lights
Jul 04, 2007 (10:01 pm)
I recently had Best Buy install a new head unit in my 1997 Acura Integra and when I took it home I noticed my instrument panel and climate control lights are no longer functioning. I checked all the fuses and it still will not turn on. I noticed when I tried to dim or brighten the lights a fuse will blow. But now when I mess with the dimmer it no longer blows a fuse. I was looking into the manual and found out that my tail lights and license plate lights run with the same fuse as my instrument panel and climate control lights. My tail lights and license plate lights function properly. Please help!!!

Replace the main relay. It is located under the dash on the drivers side. Remove the plastic panel to gain access.

The main relay, is that the fuse panel on the driver side along the side of the car or is it actually up under the dash board?
#991 of 1037 ACURAte Integra Info

Seen alot of misinformation, I just want to clarify a few things.
First off, the question of which is better, TYPE-R or GS-R?
If you want to stick with all-motor mods(non-turbo/supercharger), go with the TYPE-R, it has a higher compression(11:1).
But, if you want all out power and insanity, go with a GS-R, it's compression is still high at 10:1 but with low compression pistons and cylinder sleeves, it responds much better to TURBO or SUPERCHARGING, mods and is capable of far more power than a TYPE-R.
I do not remember the magazine, but from a shop called ENDYNE in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas, they turbo'd a 95 GS-R to 744 WHP(wheel horse power). without slicks it was running 10.01 in the 1/4 mile.
Stock TYPE-R's at 195 hp are faster than Stock GS-R's(170) and will respond better to simple cheap mods.
VTEC in fact kicks in at 4400 with the first lobe, and the second lobe of VTEC kicks in at around 6000.
I own a 95 GS-R got it around 04-05 for 6k, the owner before me added Cold Air Intake, DC Headers, and Borla exhaust. An enormous storm here in UTAH swamped my old GS-R engine because i did not have an air bypass valve(now i know), USDM(united states domestic market.) I imported a JDM(japan(ese) domestic market) engine. it has a higher compression of 10.6:1 than a stock USDM GS-R, and 180hp instead of 170, with mods has over 200 hp.
I haven't topped out my new engine yet, need to fix my front right drive axle first(huge 1-1/2 foot porcupine damaged it) but my old motor with same mods hit 149 on I-215 here in utah.
Take Care All, and please research before giving info.
