  2. Clutch slave cylinder

    5th Gen
    I have a manual 98 prelude that I'm replaced the clutch master and slave cylinder on. I'm pretty sure I got them both installed properly but the clutch pedal still drops straight to the floor and the slave cylinder wont disengage the clutch. I can push the rod back to were its supposed to be but...
  3. 1996 Honda Prelude VTEC Clutch sticks to floor

    4th Gen
    Hello, I have a 1996 Honda Prelude VTEC model. I bought this car in a no running condition but I got it to run after changing the main relay. The clutch was sticking to the floor and so I changed the slave cylinder because there was a new one in the car, still in the box. The old one was stuck...
  4. Lightweight flywheel clutch chatter

    5th Gen
    I'm planning on getting a lightweight flywheel, but don't want to get clutch chatter. I already did some research and know that the Fidanza flywheel has chatter. What are some lightweight flywheels that don't chatter much?
  5. Problem shifting

    4th Gen
    Can anybody explain this? I believe this is caused by my shift cable, but I may be wrong. It looks as though it's frayed or something, it looks like a lot of small wires where some aren't connected. It doesn't look right. it's similar to the picture, but not as bad. Very similar though. So...
  6. Flashing engine light? Possible misfiring?

    5th Gen
    Hey all, new to the forum. A little backstory on my car: I picked up a 5 speed 2001 base model prelude 7 months ago. It's my first car and I knew next to nothing when I picked it up (still do not know a ton); so of course I was sold an oil burning lemon. About 2 months ago, it started having an...
  7. Exedy Clutch Kit - Where can I find one?

    3rd Gen
    Hey guys, so I'm trying to find an Exedy clutch kit online but I'm having issues. A lot of my finds say they fit 88-91, which doesn't make sense because I know they're not interchangeable. Has anyone bought an Exedy clutch kit recently that could supply me with a link? Or Advice on these...
  8. B20 Swap clutch question.

    3rd Gen
    I have a JDM B20A and just had to order a JDM B20A Transmission for 88-91 (they didn't specify 88-89 or 90-91) I need to find out what clutch I need to get. theyre Japanese so do I get a Japanese specific clutch or am I fine getting any clutch kit that auto zone says fits the 2.0?
  9. HELP: 3rd Gen Clutch wont shift when started

    3rd Gen
    In sum, my car wont go into gear while running... but when its off it will go into all gears. To put it into gear and start it causes the car to jump forward even with the clutch pushed I think.. but the slave cylinder / fork opens up when you push the clutch. Also.. I did the B21A1 swap to...

  11. I'm an idiot

    3rd Gen
    Alright, I figured that title would catch your attention. Now that you're here, my issue, as it stands: The other night, while out in the middle of nowhere trying to rescue a fellow 3rd Gen, I burnt my clutch playing in dirt/gravel pavement. Thing is, I'm not sure exactly what happened... or...

    2nd Gen
    I am replacing the clutch in my 86 lude SI. I finally got the transmission out and I am hoping that the problem is the throw out bearing(using a clutch kit so it was getting replaced regardless). I think the shift release fork is damaged, does anyone have any pictures of what it should look...
