I recently bought a 1991 Acura Integra (OBD0) with a bown head gasket w/ 218k miles on the original B18A 1.8L, partially disassembled engine when I bought it. I could not find a reasonably priced exact replacement, so on the advice of a "friend", I bought a 1992 Civic (OBD1)JDM B16A 1.6L w/ 41k miles. I guess it's not so bad, since I got a whole front clip for $850 from a company in Abilene, TX (Superior Trading International) off EBAY. I have experience w/ several domestic swaps, and have done my own maintenance for a while now on my vehicles, and the install it self went smoothly. Before installing the engine, I installed a new water pump and timing belt. I did not verify thee engine was at #1 TDC, I just swapped the belt w/ out moving the pulleys. When I swapped the original OBD1 distributor for an OBD0 VTEC dist., I also did not verify #1 TDC, I just put it on w/ out moving the dist or turning the engine and pointed the rotor to the same spot. I realize now that both of these were errors .The trouble came getting the car running right/ It started up, but would not idle on its own, but would idle unless the throttle was held. I ran the car awhile and tried several things to fix this. (In my haste, I forgot to look at the check engine light on th ECU to see if there were any codes, as it is under the carpet on th passenger footwell). I plan to check for codes tomorrow. I tried to drive the car, and I got to about 20 mph and the engine died. It did not make any horrendous noises or anything, it just died. It would turn over, but not start. I tried to start it maybe three times, and now it will not even turn over. The battery is not dead, but I put a charger just to be sure. I am going to check the starter and timing tomorrow. Part of the problem is the B18A had a mile of vacuum lines that the previous owner yanked off w/ out labelling when he pulled the intake/ head. I have only been able to work on the car on weekends, and I have had the car since July, messed w/ trying to fix the B18, pulled it, bought the B16 1st part of October. Iwant to get it on the road!. My truck gets 13mpg and $40/ week for gas is KILLING ME!!!Any advice?
