Hello,

I need some help. My cousin just gave me his 1995 Integra. I notice I can't rev pass 3500 rpm. Don't matter which gear I am in. I tried reving pass 3500 rpm just sitting still but I still can't rev pass 3500 rpm. Seems like there is a rev limiter. I don't know if it's the ECU or the cat. Please let me know
Thanks,

Ken

Check for excessive backpressure on the exhaust system, fuel pressure, TPS/IAT MAP sensors

Thanks for replying. I took my car to the dealership and the said my crank position sensor. They said in order for them to replace it they would have to replace the whole distributor. This would cost me over 500. Is there a way for me to just replace just the sensor or certain part it is attached to? Please help.

The crank sensor is located in the distributor. That is actually one of 2 crank sensors.
Trusting that the dealer is right, you will have to replace the entire dist.
Aftermarket distributors are readily available from most parts stores and are easy to install.
If you are comfortable with tasks like changing spark plugs or engine oil, you can probably replace the dist yourself.
You will need a phillips screwdriver and a 12mm wrench.
The dist is keyed, not toothed, so there is no way to install it "out of time".
Good luck.

Rev Scorpion is correct but you need a timing light to check if the ignition timing is corrctly adjusted after installation.

You are correct KHLow, I should have been more specific.

Before removing the old distributor, take a picture or make a mental note of where the bolt is sitting in the slot(s) on the distributor mounting ears.
When you install the new distributor, try to put the bolt in approximately the same position.

This will get the timing close enough that you will be able to drive the car for a couple of days until you can get it to your local shop to have the timing set.
Alternatively, you can check with your local parts store about renting a timing light and setting it yourself.
