Default ’91 Acura Integra dies

My ’91 Integra used to die on me at start, but after giving it some
gas, it would stay on. So, I used the Fuel Injection liquid to clean
the fuel injection pipes, and it worked once. It was fine for a couple
of months until today. I started it, it died right away. I kept giving
it gas, but it seemed that me giving it gas was killing the car even
faster. So, after 4 tries, it finally stayed on. But after driving it
for about 20 minutes, I turned it off and then back on, and it died
again, and no matter how many times I try, it would NOT start again!
What do you think it is? It’s not the battery. Fuel/Injection flush?
Is that what it needs? But not to the point when it doesn’t even stay
on, right? Some help needed. Thank you.
P.S. it starts, just doesn’t stay on, so it shouldn’t be the starter
either...

How many miles on her?
No mechanic here, but maybe a good tune-up, replace PCV valve, & clean
throttle body.
Then slap on a DRAG or Turbonetic turbo kit w/larger exhaust & >550cc RC
fuel injectors, reflash/tune w/Hondata s300.
Have fun w/her

FWIW, my '92 Teg doesn't like the gas hit immediately following startup.
She'll die if I give her gas, a lot of the time, then takes 2-3 mintues to
chill out before she starts again. So if you're giving it gas when you start
it, try not too, & see w
But I'd still get a tune-up & clean the TB.

easy

Sounds like the infamous "main relay" (see
http://tegger.com/hondafaq/startproblems.html#mainrelay) but it's worth
reading all about starting and running problems at
http://tegger.com/hondafaq/faq.html#startrun The symptoms aren't exactly
classic for main relay trouble, but that's still my main suspect so far.

This is a good time to bring up the timing belt issue. Your description of
on-again, off-again does not point to timing belt trouble right now, but
check your owner's manual for the timing belt interval. If you are beyond
the change interval in either miles or years, get that scheduled soon. Your
engine is likely to be severely damaged if it fails.

My Legend did that a year or so ago. It would start and then immediately
die. When it would die, there were no indicator lights on the dash at all.
It
turned out to be a faulty ignition switch. Are your indicator lights coming
on
after the engine stalls?
