    Hey guys, yet another Honda virgin weaseling himself onto the site, however; I don't have basic ass questions to ask so please don't crucify me <3. Also, I have tried doing some research on these issues, but couldn't find a quite matching set of issues to go off of, so I figured why not get some...

    Help! Power band drops at 4500 rpm (VETC engage point) When my car hits 4500 RPM (When VTEC is supposed to kick in) the power band completely dies like there's a rev limiter. And this happens only when there's some kind of load on the engine, any other time, it's fine. Can someone tell me...

    Hey guys, so another car won't start thread. Frustrating how almost none of the ones having a similar issue to mine are conclusive, so I'll try to remedy that. I've got a 1990 SR with a B20a5 block/head B21a1 everything else. Before winter it was running fine, had a minor starting issue which...

    So I'm very close to breaking in my engine, but I'm stuck because I can't get to 15 BTDC on the flywheel. I can just get past the white TDC mark, maybe plus 5? I'm using a B18A1 intake camshaft, would this have anything to do with it? I'm also using a Acura Vigor TB (which isn't actually...

    Can't find anything on my exact problem so here goes. My AC has not worked since I got the car. We have been to a few mechanics and no one has been able to fix it. When I push the AC button the green light comes on and about 3 seconds later a little red light comes on next to the letters AC...

    So we recently had our motor replaced as the timing belt went on the old motor. Parked it for winter, bought a new house and had to move it. When trying to start it, it would crank but took a couple extra seconds to fire up. Warmed it up, proceded to drive it and there was a horrible hesitation...

    So I have a 1988 Prelude, 5 spd. For some reason, it likes to idle real low, but I don't have an IACV or a MAF sensor, for I have a throttle body (carburetor). It occasionally, gradually picks up back to about 1400 rpm, but most of the time idles at about 100-150, maybe 200 rpm. I don't see any...

    Hello everyone, I've got an 87 Si nearing on 400K. I drive her 100 mi/ day to and from work. Every once in a blue moon the car wont start (no dash lights, no crank, nothing) I would just cycle the key a few times and she'd go. I was planning on replacing the ignition switch to fix the problem...

    I have a 2001 Prelude with an h22a motor. Only when I accelerate and more so when I am at a low rpm, I hear a faint clicking sound. It seems to do it more when the engine is cold. After driving a while, I don't hear the clicking sound as much. The clicking is very fast, and slightly high...
