    Hi Everyone, I need to reset the ABS light in my daughter's '98 Prelude Base. I know why the light came on and the reason is because I had a abs wiring harness unplugged when I turned on the vehicle. I had to remove the front knuckle with the abs wire on it to replace the ball joint...

    I recently got a 5th gen SH that's been sitting for about 5-6 months and got it up and running no problem, when I shift from second to third the rpm just drops around 2k and takes time to build up speed but sometimes it doesn't drop and feels good. I'm new getting into cars and been scoping out...

    Hello! I'm new to the Prelude scene. My car is a BB5 1999 Honda Prelude SiR - H22A for some reason I couldn't find suspension parts, strut bars, etc for the car to start the restoration. H22A engine components are easy to find but I believe I could find the parts I need if I knew which parts...

    I've had this prelude about a year and the engine recently blew (Age, Winter, Bad Luck). What I know is the head gasket blew and my mechanic who looked at it told me the cylinder head would need replacing. My knowledge is fairly limited but I intend to learn so my question is this: I want to...
  20. 5th Gen
    I first have to point out that I bought my 5th gen honda prelude 2001 used. When I bought it the previous owner had lowered it quite a bit. However I do plan on raising it especially since he did not re-wire. Unfortunately, one night on a commute back home from work I hit a pot hole where I’m...
