2.2 Prelude SOHC shuts off while driving. Replaced ICM and it was fine for about a month then I had the same problem again Some say ignition switch, others say bad ICM, i don't have a clue as to what the problem is. Can anyone give me some insight???

We've replaced everything except the flex lines, still gets hot and smells like burning rubber.

usually between 4th to 5th gear is just cuts outs and dies. I will coast after is dies restart the car and when I put it back in gear and press the throttle is cut a off and dies again. repeat same said steps but then the car wouldn't start back up. I sat for a min or two and it started right back up. first I thought it only happened when it rained outside but it just happened twice on a beautiful hot summer day. I do have a a hole in my flex pipe but I just ordered a new flex pipe idk if the lack of pressure would cause a shott down like that but it seems unlikely.

car ran good, then started missing, jerking, no power, will not start no! have replaced exhaust sensor, new plugs, coil, wires

Never a problem before. Just happened.

when i start my car the battery light and brake light come on dimly. i apply the brakes and try to put into drive but it wont leave park. i used the over ride switch to put tranny into neutral then start and car moves but wont idle right and speedometer doesnt work. please help

while driving the yellow dashboard engine light comes on and stays on

Interested in buying a 1992 Honda Prelude on 180,000 km

Swap the motor from an H22A1 to an H22A4

I believe that the fuel injection system and my intake system are having a few problems. This car was bought from the original owners with these few problems existing. The car runs great but sometimes has some trouble starting when its cold outside. its seems as though it is flooding at some points and not at others. If i let it sit for a bit and then try again to start it then it turns right over and starts. Maybe it would be as simple as changing a fuel filter or something but I'm just not sure. Got any clever ideas on what i could do??? Its also an 1986 but i could not select that as a year available, if that helps any.

it takes forever to start but once it is started it runs great if i take it somewhere it is fine if its sits for a few it starts right back up . if it sits for a long period say an 8 hour shift it is a pain to start again but again as soon as it fires up it runs great. this car is my wifes pride and joy it is mint condition. please any help would be greatly appreciated.
i am a technician but dont know alot about older hondas please help.

D4 green light flashes

Can I order a new one and replace it myself or should I take it to a dealer. How much does this type of repair cost

light is on during start up then goes off after several miles

parking brake is not being used

I tried to push it in neutral doesn't move. I think it may be the shift cable but I'm not sure need help.

I adjusted the valves by what it says under the hood and its still ticking, not as bad but not like it was before. what would be the problem(s)? what is the best solution(s) to fix or parts that would keep it from making the noise.

actually is 89 honda prelude 2.0 Si DOHC. its not in pass kick panel, its not in driver sd dashboard beside the fuses. I am trying to have power to the new fuel pump which missing.

i just wanted to know if i can replace my clutch from the top of the engine or if i have to get under it or pull it..thanks

i have a 92 prelude with a 2.3 dohc engine. It has 190000 miles on it. My problem started with when i had to slow down fast or come to all most a stop. When i began to give the car more gas it has no power and acts as if it wants to die. I then would feather the gas and it would pick back up, and run fine. This only happen off and on for a couple of weeks. Yesterday this happened again but now there is a miss in the engine and now it has less power and feels as if it has a slight miss when running at speed. It runs a little better once the engine warms up good. I have changed the plugs, plug wires and fuel filter. None of this helped. I can't get a diagnostic test done for a few days. Thanks for any help.

One of my head lights will not go down. When I use the swith on the dash it will not respond. Also I have an oil leak and I can't determine where its coming from. What are your suggestions.

The car will start but the petal wont disengage nor can I shift into any gear.I can manually pull on the petal to bring it to its "disengaged" position. The reservor is full of fluid and there seems to be nothing that is hampering the petal or clutch cable. Thank You for time...redheadache

I'll replace the driver's side, then a couple months later, the passenger side, then 6 months later, the driver's side again. It's never ending. I've had the car for 12 years and it seems lately the problem is getting worse. I only drive this car about 3000 miles per year, so it can't be over-use. I've used different brands of lights. No difference. Has anyone else had this problem or know why it's happening? Thank you.

i have two oil leaks, coolant leak, and the car runs like a champ when its cold out but as soon as it gets hot outside runs sluggish and acts warm,,just doesnt overheat and the 4ws turns off i miss my 4ws and really want it to work...

how long does it take to repair and how for the labor

I changed altenator, new battery,oil changed, tune up. It sometimes has an up and down idle. When I get it to start it stalls whenever I have to stop.

They worked, i took my car in for some work at a shop and it came out and the wipers did not work anymore, could they have just blown a fuse?

I recently bought a 1991 Prelude 2.0 DOHC. It was owned by an old man that rear ended a tow bar. Front bumper, slam tray, aircon radiator and coolant radiator were damaged. The car sat for 12 months without running. I bought it and fixed it up. I drained the fuel tank and replaced the fuel pump as it had rusted. When I drive the car now, 20 minutes after starting the pump becomes increasingly noisy until I lose power. I switch off and start 5 minutes later and the pump is quiet and full power is back. I replaced this pump again as I thought the new one may be faulty, but the new one does the same. I have changed the filter and blown out all the fuel line to check for blockages. Still the same. Please help?
