asked by on

My car has 225000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

If you are getting the car to die going down the road, then see if you are losing spark to the spark plugs. If so, then check the distributor to see if you are getting oil in it or a possible failed ignition igniter in the distributor. If you are getting oil, then replace the distributor and all parts inside it with a new one. It looks like the car has already had a good amount of work done, so this may be something that is slightly less common. If you would like to have the stalling issue diagnosed, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to have a look at your Acura Integra.
