    So I just bought my Honda prelude 5 days ago and I love it, but I was going down a really bumpy driveway at night and hit a deep pothole and now there's a hold in my oil pan. I'm currently trying to patch it so I cam get around, but I need to find a new oil pan. I've looked online but can't seem...

    I just got a 1988 honda prelude(automatic) and the issue im having with it is that it has a hard time starting but I think it might be the battery or the carbuerator but im not sure.

    I'm doing a h22 swap on my 3rd gen prelude, I got the engine but it came with a blown auto Trans (didn't want automatic anyways) but I found a 5 speed out of a 98 prelude he says it's out of a base model. My question is how do I tell the difference between the sh and base model Trans. I rather...

    I tried unplugging the TPS but it didn't do anything I'm not sure if there's a stock nap on the prelude or not but I have no CEL and I was just cruising down the highway and then all the sudden it started bogging under anything more than feathering the throttle if you feather the throttle you...

    Im aware of all the typical coilover options for the 3rd gen. Really not trying to spend a grand +. Does anyone have any coilovers for a gen 3 they would be willing to sell? Or any suggestions on middle of the road coilovers for one that im not seeing? I refuse to go with cheap ass ebay options.

    Changing the timing belt atm and the service manual's first instruction is to remove the side engine mount attached to the timing cover as pictured. Is it OK to take it off and leave it off for several days without jacking/lifting up the engine? There seems to be a bit of engine weight on it...

    Is it a common occurrence for the front trunk gutter corners (closer to the front bumper) to rust out? Secondly is there a lip on the gutter that protrudes upwards? And does anyone know of a source for new trunk weather-stripping/seals?

    Hey everyone! I’m having a problem that’s becoming a big pain with my lude. When I go to crank the car up it will either start right up or the start will be really hard. I either have to pump the gas pedal a lot or if I unplug the fuel pump then plug it back in it seems to run fine. I’ve posted...
