Exactly, the TDC Sensor went bad. 1st my problem was error code 8. Which by the book states error code 8
is "TDC Sensor (Top Dead Center) defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor"
My friend read again, this time take note of the Part# 37500-P72-A01 and notice "Crank-TDC
SENSOR" When U go there notice the hyphen "-" between the Crank and TDC ACURA INTEGRA CRANK-TDC SENSOR ASSY. Part# 37500-P72-A01
Also, while ur there click on the "View Diagram" so u can see where it's located.
If U still don't believe, then take note of the part# 37500-P72-A01 and call any Honda/Acura Dealership Parts Dept. and ask them if the TDC sensor is also known as the Crankshaft sensor.
When I originally started calling parts depts. I kept asking for the TDC sensor (Top Dead Center) and I was quickly told that it was better known as the Crank shaft sensor.
2nd, when reading this a post in another forum, someone states:
"Also, by the book, getting to the TDC sensor (technically a crank position sensor) is a pain, however....all of those steps aren't necessary. You only need to remove all 3 accessory belts, the harmonic damper, and the bottom bolts of the lower timing belt cover. You DO NOT need to remove the top 2 covers OR the timing belt at all. Once enough bolts are removed from the bottom cover, you can pull it out from the bottom while the top is still attached to the top covers. Just find something to prop it out of the way. The TDC sensor is located to the left of the crankshaft sprocket. This is IF you have to remove the CKP sensor. Now to remove the cam sensors are a pain.
BTW, my goal is not make an argument out of this, just when someone else has this problem with error code 8 and they are googling around for an answer they can see what others have gone thru and how it was resolved.
