Default 1995 Acura Integra help?

Alright, so my friends 95' Integra LS 4-cyl non vtech, automatic, is having some starting issues, was wondering if you guys had any idea as to what the problem is. (This is basically my weekend car aswell)


When you start the car when its cold, all is good. No issues at all.

When you start the car after its warmed up, it starts normal, then just dies. Like the RPMs go up, then come straight down. To start it after its warmed up, you have to start it, then rev it up to about 5k, then let off the gas and it'll stay on.

*New fuel filter, new engine ~130k, runs perfect, no engine light.

Any idea's guys?

I know the #1 issue is the "Honda motor co" on the engine, but besides that. Hahahaha.

Sounds like a distributor problem, will it crank back up with you reving it right after it shuts off?

Ohh well then its probably not the distributor, if it was it wouldnt crank up after it shut off until the distributor cools back down. Have you tried a new fuel pump? Its probably reving up right before it shuts off because it is trying to suck gas but it isnt getting any.

But when its cold it starts fine? Would that still make sense with the fuelpump?

Hmmm didnt think about that. Does it run fine until you shut it off and then try to crank it again?

Id check the coil, when hot the coil heat soaks and might not start then. Is there spark when this happens?

Idk man sounds like something is getting hot and shutting it off when it does. I would think that if it was the distributor it wouldnt crank back up at all until it cooled off. And it really sounds like a fuel pump problem but it cranking fine when it is cold is confusing. Your right on the tricky part lol.
