Bad thermostat;make SURE you get a ACURA thremostat,the right temp for your
car.It's worth the money.I checked out PepBoys generic replacements,and
the recommended TS was the wrong temp. My 94 GSR uses a 195degF TS,and the
PepBoys one was only 180,so the motor would not warm up to the right
temp,and the fan and VTEC would not activate,amd I believe it also affects
fuel economy(mileage).


Your earlier Integra may use the 180 degF TS;check to be sure.
