I would suggest down shifting to a lower gear. Honda engines dont have any torque so uphills for them are trouble. On mine going up a hill I try to keep it in 3000rpms and higher.

What the 1st answer said is absolutely correct. If you are driving a stick, you should try to downshift into a lower gear and accelerate a little more. If you are driving an auto, try shifting it into D3 so it can accelerate a little better.Also, an Integra has plenty of power. But the thing is that it doesn't have alot of torque, because Honda engines weren't meant to make alot. They were meant to have higher redline RPMs. Every car manufacturer has tuned the engines to a certain want. In Honda's case, higher RPMS.

Integras make enough power for daily driving, so that's not the problem. Whenever you have a small displacement, high RPM motor, you will naturally make low torque, and any torque you do make will be in the higher RPMs (torque is the grunt behind the engine). To go up the hill, downshift to increase RPMs, and you should have no problem going up the hill.

Additional DetailsIt is an automaticYou answered your own question.Automatic integras have a whopping 140 hp, at least in a manual you don't lose as much power going through the transmission.automatics = slow
