Can I change this without recharging the A/C system?
Better then oem, Good quality
If my ac is on the idle feels right like its compensating vacuum,but when I did a scan 032 came up, h02 sensor in the catalytic converter could that be the problem and not vacuum leaks?
ATTS Light is on and the dianostic code reader shows no codes what is the problem now engine sounds like it has a misfire is it gonna be the same problem just transferred to 80k engine that was put in a week ago frustrating please answer!The light is always on now
i changed the MAP sensor and the TPS sensor and cleaned the air intake valve
Driving down the road the engine just dies out of nowhere.I have 2 lights on my dash 1 being check engine (error says o2 sensor) , 2 is my ATTS. Now I don't believe that they are related. When the engine dies my car does'nt have power to the radio, dash or no power to my brakes or power steering. I tryed to pop the clutch while coasting after it dies, nothing happens. I will turn the key to start it again I will get the noise like the car is running and hearing the starter grinding. I try turing the key a few times in about 5 or 10 seconds later, it runs like nothing happened and drive normally.their is no hesitation in the engine or bog when it starts back up. The only thing I can think of is an ignition switch.
Any input in this problem will help.
I have a 99 prelude with 183000 miles. 5 speed. I bought it new and have driven it daily for almost 15 years. A couple of weeks ago it wouldn't crank and my mechanic ( who I trust ) says the heads have collapsed, it's not getting nearly enough compression and needs a new motor.

I don't mind spending $1500 to $2k on it but my fear is that it will never be right again. I adore the car. Is a new motor really my only option and if so how likely is it that a mechanic not specializing in Hondas will be able to successfully replace the motor? I've been told the prelude is very hard to repair this way. I'm dieing to keep the car but don't want to waste thousands and still not have a reliable car.
car ran good, then started missing, jerking, no power, will not start no! have replaced exhaust sensor, new plugs, coil, wires
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
what tools do i need to put on the belt
When I start my car a weird sound starts. When I am driving the car jerks a bit. The check engine light is on. This is a five speed manual v-6.
yes check engine light is on. but when it dies it dosen't restart itself. i have to turn my key and start it myself. how much would it cost me if it was the ignition switch?
