    • Integra FAQ Thread: Reformatted and Generally Spiffed Up.. READ IT!

    I'm serious.. read and use it.

    Since the original FAQ was turning into a jumble of tables and stats, I've stripped it down and completely overhauled it. It is now more readable and much more intellgently organized IMO.

    MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS:
    * You can now scroll down to the index and click the link to get the info you want.

    * Also, there is a very detailed list of threads regarding basic modifications. This index has been created to eliminate the common reposted topics about intakes and exhaust and all the other simple stuff.

    So use this thread as your resource to find the basic info.


    CONTRIBUTIONS WELCOMED!
    To preserve order, this thread will remain locked.

    If you have a contribution, PM me or Provocateur and we'll glady consider it.

    Also, if anyone spots a glitch in the data, please let us know.
    All submitted corrections & contributions will be credited to their authors.


    New Members / Readers: A very important note:
    The RSX is not included in this FAQ, nor will it ever be.
    See the RSX & 02+ Civic Si Forum for questions related to the RSX platform.

    How to Retrieve "Check Engine" Light / ECU Fault Codes:

    HOW TO RETRIEVE "CHECK ENGINE" [CEL] CODES

    If your CEL has illuminated, it is far more helpful to know WHY it has lit up instead of just guessing at the problem.

    How do you find out what the error is?
    Well you will need a short piece of wire or a paperclip.

    On the passenger side of your car, under the dash beneath the glove box, you will find a green cover above the kickpanel that houses a blue connector that has two wires.
    Spoiler for Pics:


    Images by c-speedracing.com


    PART ONE: RETRIEVING THE CODE(S):
    1. Turn the ignition off and use the piece of wire or paperclip to jump the blue connector, so that you connect the two wires together.
    Stick one end of the paperclip or piece of wire into one prong on the connector and stick the other end of the paperclip or wire into the other prong.

    2)Turn the key to the IGN position and watch your CEL light.
    It will illuminate in a series of flashes.

    3) Record the CEL lamp flash pattern.
    You will notice that there will be LONG flashes and SHORT flashes.
    All of the ECU trouble codes are two-digits.

    PART TWO: DECODING THE FLASH PATTERN:
    LONG flashes determine the TENS digit by the number of times it flashes.
    SHORT flashes determine the ONES digit by the number of times it flashes.

    As an example:
    LONG-LONG-LONG
    followed immediately by
    SHORT-SHORT-SHORT-SHORT-PAUSE
    is the trouble code: 34

    If the ECU has logged only one code, then the pattern of flashes will simply repeat until you remove the key.

    If more than one ECU error code has logged, then you will see a different series of flashes followed by the long pause.

    Once all the ECU codes have been displayed, they will continuously cycle until you remove the key.

    As an example:
    LONG-LONG
    followed immediately by
    SHORT-PAUSE
    followed by
    LONG-LONG-LONG-LONG
    followed immediately by
    SHORT-SHORT-SHORT-PAUSE
    indicates the trouble codes: 21 and 43

    Once you have determined the codes, you can simply remove the paperclip or wire from the connector and replace it back in the green housing.

    And another one for the ABS error codes. You jumper the same SCS connector as when you're reading ECU codes, but it's the ABS light that flashes. If you have ECU and ABS problems, then both lights will be flashing.

    - Plug in the jumper, turn on the key. ABS light comes on for a couple seconds then off for a couple seconds. That isn't part of the code.

    - Short flashes for the first digit of the code.
    - Short pause.

    How to: Decode Integra VIN Numbers: 3rd Generation [1994-2001]

    As heavily modified 3rd Gen Integras start hitting the used car market, it's best to get the straight story on what the car started out as.

    With body modifications and motor swaps galore, a shady seller could claim to be selling an "ultra-rare left-hand JDM iTR sedan" at a premium price, when in fact it's just an average USDM car with a lot of work done.

    So.. the well-educated buyer ought to use this guide to cut through potential BS spewed by a "motivated seller".

    Example VIN : JH4DB7551WS000001

    Spoiler for Instructions:
    Separate the VIN like so: JH4 DB7 5 5 1 W S 000001

    JH4 = Honda Motor Co. Ltd. Acura Passenger Vehicle

    DB7 = Body & Engine type:
    [See above posts for output and specs]
    >> DB7: 4dr B18B
    DB8: 4dr B18C
    DC4: 2dr B18B
    DC2: 2dr B18C

    5 = Body & Transmission Type:
    [See Gen III Spec Sheet for specs and ratios]
    3: 2dr 5spd
    4: 2dr auto
    >> 5: 4dr 5spd
    6: 4dr auto

    5= Vehicle Grade:

    [NOTE: May vary from year to year.]
    1: Type R
    3: RS no pass. airbag (94 only)
    4: RS with passenger airbag (94 only)
    >> 5: LS
    6: GS/SE
    8: GS-R
    9: GS-R w/ leather seats

    1= Check digit, Ignore.

    W= Model year
    R: 1994
    S: 1995
    T: 1996
    V: 1997
    >> W: 1998
    X: 1999
    Y: 2000
    1: 2001

    S = Factory Code
    >> S: Suzuka, Japan

    000001 = Production Order Serial Number


    Thus decoded, JH4DB7551WS000001 translates into a 1998 Integra LS Sedan with a 5-speed manual transmission.

    HOW TO: Turn off a Flashing Maintenance Req'd light.

    So simple, that us long-time owners have forgotten about it. But for the Integra n00bs who see this flashing, don't fret. It's easy as 1-2-3 to shuts it off.

    What is it?
    It's a dummy light designed to go off after certain mileage intervals for "service." This service is an oil change. It's blinking in your face for 10 seconds after starting your car.

    How do I turn it off?
    Like resetting a circuit breaker in your house:
    -Turn the ignition key to "ON," the position before you turn to crank the motor - do not start the car
    -Under the panel above your right leg, there is a small box attached to the inside of this panel.
    -Reach under and feel for a small, square button.
    -Push and hold this button.
    -On the gauge cluster, the "MAINT REQ'D" light will illuminate then turn off.
    -Release the button, turn the key to the "OFF" position, then start her up. Viola! No more idiot light!

    Can I prevent it from coming on again?
    You sure can. That same box with the reset button has a harness connected to the top of it. If you pull this harness, the light will not come on anymore.

    HOW TO: Correct Surging / Erratic Idle Speed

    As originally posted by JimBlake:

    Surging Idle

    There's tons of postings about "MY IDLE GOES UP & DOWN! WHAT DO I DO?" It's tempting to yell & scream & tell people to search, but hopefully this will be more useful than flaming...

    Here's what to check:

    Look for (& fix) vacuum leaks. They can be anywhere...

    Get ALL the air out of the cooling system. Some years have a bleeder screw near the upper radiator hose. You also have to squeeze the hoses & work the air over to the radiator cap. Air likes to hang out in the heater core too, so have the temperature slider set to full-hot when you do anything.

    Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) is bolted on the back of the intake manifold. Clean it out with throttlebody cleaner.

    Fast-Idle Thermo-Valve (FITV) is mounted under the throttlebody (up thru '95). If your car has it, clean it out too. Sometimes it's guts get loose, so you can drain some coolant & open up the cover. Tighten & put it all back. (Beginning in '96 the FITV's job was built into the IACV.)

    After everything else is fixed, set the base idle speed like this.
    - Warm up the engine & turn off ALL accessory loads.
    - Unplug the elecrical plug from the IACV, hold the revs up so it doesn't stall. Gently let it drop to idle.
    - Adjust the idle screw (above the TB bore) to get 480 rpm.
    - Turn off the engine, plug in the IACV, pull the ECU fuse or battery cables to reset the ECU.
    - Start the engine & let it idle for several minutes without touching the throttle.
