    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...

I just got my new rear tie rod ends from Rock Auto (MAS T059585) they were the only ones I could find and the MAS part # is the right alternate part # for Honda part # 53550-SF1-004. After everything I went through to get them, long story, don't ask, take my word that...

    So here’s the deal. I got a 1988 Honda prelude 2.0Si fuel injected and I’m trying to smog it but it keeps failing on the HC portion of the test. Keeps blowing 9-35 points too high. I took apart my whole air intake down to the back of the engine and when I put it back together I got 25mpg. Then I...

    I need to change the spark plugs on my 3rd gen. Its the SOHC dual carb engine. Does anyone know how many spark plugs it calls for (I am assuming 4) and are there any write ups on the install that you have come across? Thanks in advance

    I bought a 91 prelude si two days ago, today on my way to work the gauges started to act funny and then all of them died, shortly after my cluster stopped working I began to lose power and the car wouldn't ago above 20 mph or so. I pulled off to the side of the road, turned it off and now it...

    MY PRELUDE'S SAFETY 3 ITEMS. ・Hazard switch on + brake lamp ・Trunk lid Open ・Back https://www.facebook.com/100017370319472/videos/pcb.10150991715959996/194494511139558/?type=3&theater&ifg=1

    Replacing all the bushings on my old, worn out prelude and I can't find a kit online for my car. Does the 89' Prelude share a suspension setup with a Civic/Accord of the same year? Feel like I could find those a lot easier. Either way I'm looking for bushings and can't find them, any suggestions?

As a result of checking it in the investigation for the purpose of "the security of the spare meter" in case of the emergency badly by operating, and identifying it as "the operation confirmation of the...
