CAR DIES WHILE DRIVING

Acura Integra

I have a 1994 acura integra given to me, it has aroung 168, 00 miles, its a stick shif. The car leaks oil right under the front of the engine, but ie only leaks when the car is turned of and it leaks for about 1 minute.

When I got the car I was putting 91 gas in instead of 93 after it started cutting of while driving a couple days later I notice it say use premiun unleaded fuel only. Do you that I have damaged the fuel system? When it cut off I try to start it sometimes it starts right away and sometimes it takes a couple trys. Sometime it will started up the it will shut dowm. While i'm driving it will not let me accelerate and when I slow down and pull to the side it shuts off. Please tell me what you think maybe going on.

This kind of sounds like the ongoing problem I've had with fuel pumps on my Integra overheating in the really hot weather (especially with the air conditioning on).
The engine quits and won't start until I let it cool off. Sometimes there is a loud hissing or whistle coming from in front of the left rear wheel well where the fuel pump is located and the pump itself is way too hot to touch. The problem gets worse and worse and happens more and more often until I replace the pump.
I know they finally started putting the fuel pump inside the gas tank to keep it cool.
