I just got this integra. I think it has an idleing problem? the previous owner said the following....
" it has 153,000 miles. I think it has a problem with the TPS (throttle positioning sensor) and also has an oil leak. The car runs great other than it idles to high at about 2000 rpms. As well as got the IACV replaced. The TPS I swapped out of an old head laying around. The idle air control valve is what was replaced and still didn't adjust the idle..."
The distruibutor cap looks normal, no cracks or serious wear.
I recorded a video and put it on youtube for a better diagnosis from anyone that would like to contribute and help me out. Take a look.

Before posting questions about Honda idle problems please read this:
The viewers have chosen and this weeks video will be about solving Honda
idle problems. I'm really not surprised as I get a lot of questions and
requests about this very subject. Here are the links I promised in the
video that will help you address specific issues mentioned in the video.

Reading Check Engine Light Codes
Diagnosing an Overheat
Hopefully when your done checking all that stuff out you will have solved
your Honda's idle problem, if not leave a comment or send me a message and
I'll see what I can do just make sure you have tried all the stuff in the
videos first as that saves me from typing so much.
I also want to add my "Idle Speech" into the mix here:
There are a lot of things that can contribute to an idle issue, in fact in
the end it may still be there to some degree because of the nature of that
engine however here are some things to start with.
First start with a good tune up, use NGK or Nippon Denso plugs, don't
change the wires if they are OE, if they aren't OE you might consider NGK
wires as they are very good and less expensive then OE. A quality cap and
rotor should be good. A new air filter also helps.
Don't change the PCV valve, if you see an aftermarket PCV valve in there
put a Honda in, believe it or not I've seen idle issues caused by
aftermarket PCV valves, the OE's last just about forever so you can easily
justify the expense.
Next a good valve adjustment, this goes a long way to smooth out the idle
if done correctly, mess it up and things can get a lot worse though.
While you have the valve cover off check the timing belt tension, if you
feel a lot of slack this can cause the cam to 'chunk' as it spins causing a
rough idle. If you think the belt has been on there for some time then
you might consider changing it and resetting the tension properly, if it's
not ready for replacement you can reset the tension to take up the slack.
DO NOT adjust the idle screw under any circumstances, it is set at the
factory and that is the reason it was sealed in the first place. If you
find that the seal has been broken and you have a low idle and you have
done all of the above then you might turn the screw out a little to see if
that helps the idle but only enough to try and bring it back to where it
was before it was adjusted in the first place.
Last clean the screen in the Idle Air Control valve, this can get clogged
up with carbon over time and cause the flow through it to be restricted
which can cause idle issues.
If you still have a 'rough' idle after all of this THEN look to the engine
mounts as you want to be sure the engine is running correctly before you go
for those as the one in the back is a real pain to replace.

Rare 1997 Acura Integra GSR Restoration & Takoff
1997 Acura Integra GS-R GSR Restoration and Highlights
Created: July 2012
I found this rare gem an hour out from where I live and what a car it was!
It was girl owned! Wow this made the car that much better! Not trying to
bash on guys but some girls really maintain their cars right! Yes the body
wasn't all perfect but it's a '97 and girls can't do everything! Also I
took care of all of that :) But if you drive this car that is all you need
to do and you will make sure you don't let this one slip away from you.
Super well maintained mechanically speaking. Transmission was super smooth,
clutch felt like new! Wow what a joy it was driving this beast around! It
seriously takes you back to '97 that's how well it was maintained! Oh and
when you hear and feel VTEC you will never want to step out of the car
I almost let this slip away when two others came out to see the car,
luckily they only had $2,500 which was the asking price and I was much more
prepared then that! I was just like so long suckers!
The GS-R is truly one of my top 5 favorite JDM cars.
Yes this is a '97 so it didn't have the upgraded front clip and rear
bumper. But I still loved everything about it! It also didnt come with
leather like the 98-01 GSR but the cloth actually feels much better. It's
soft and cozy, it doesn't heat up or get really cold and most importantly
it doesn't wear and crack like most leather seats on the GSR's.
For questions or comments please reply below! :)

My car was stolen and found behind some crackhouse in downtown a week or so
later. As you can see, there's not much left. I have another video that I
made before we found the car that has more pictures of it before.

1999 Acura Integra - My First Car
This is my 1999 Acura Integra GS. My first car, a luxury Honda. This will
be an in-depth tour of my car, inside and out, and a brief history of my
many years of ownership since 2007. I bought this car the summer before my
senior year in high school, and it has treated me well. Some say it's the
greatest handling front wheel drive car of all time, I agree.
