what's up everybody? new to the neighborhood. anyway, my 92 has been giving me trouble starting. the battery is less than a year old. lately, i've been needing a jump to get it started. also, i noticed that when i raise the power windows with the headlights on, the headlights will dim slightly. is this necessarily an alternator issue?
#1000 of 1037 Acura Integra Service- HELP!
Nov 28, 2007 (4:49 pm)
Have a 99 Integra GS, with 38k, Just brought it in for servicing. Here is what they told me I needed with prices. Am I being ripped off, or is this legit?
New Belt- $799. ( never had it replaced, so probably need it, car bought in 99, new, have had all service done, but never new engine belt.. they are telling me it should be replaced every 60k or 5 yrs.)
Trunk Latch-$468 (latch is sticking, telling me they need to replace whole thing)
Front Brake-$189 (they say needs replacing, ok..break is making kind of hollow sound, so could be true)
Splash Shield-$117.98 ( hanging down, needs replacing)
Sunroof-$918 (sunroof is difficult to open and they say the whole motor is going and entire thing needs to be replaced) I live in southern nevada, so love having the use of the sunroof with the nice weather, but is it worth to replace or not?
Basic 37,500k service- $79.95
Love my car, have had no trouble since owning it. Replaced battery once, and recently bought new tires. Should I be putting this kind of money into a car that is this old? Should I skip the sunroof repair?
Any insight you can give me would be much appreciated!
#1001 of 1037 time for a new vehicle?
Jan 27, 2008 (9:42 pm)
At present I have a 98 Integra LS with 302,000 miles on it and would like to know how long do these typically last, and how much more I can drive this one before I make any more major repairs or replacements. I just wonder if the recent repairs and the upkeep expenditures were worth it, considering the mileage and the fact that I am looking to replace this one sometime this year.

We bought this 1992 mint condition Type-R in Dec 07. Only had 50k miles. Drove perfectly for 1 month. Then it would not start. Taken to dealer determined after many checks that it was a blown head gasket. Now they tell us that one of the cylinders is cracked and that the engine is shot.
The dealer said they cannot find a engine to get replacement parts.
My questions are these;
1) Does anyone know of a web site that has alot of Acura parts available?
2) Can a LS engine be put into a Type-R, will the tranny work?
3) Does anyone know of a machine shop that could manufacture the cylinder?
4) Any known good Acura rebuilders in the NE
I really want to keep this one. The body and interior is truly in mint condition. Please help.
#1005 of 1037 1996 Integra GS-R: should I repair it before selling?
May 09, 2008 (7:38 am)
I hope to soon sell (or possibly trade in) my 1996 Acura Integra GS-R (70,000 miles). However, currently it needs a new radiator and other parts. My local auto shop has given me a bid of $700 for parts and labor.
Should I have them repair it before I try to sell or trade it? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I believe you have a short somewhere in the wiring of your lights. Trace the wires from the inside of the dash back to the fuse box or from the fuse box to the dash.
