    Hello everyone, first post and first time Prelude owner. Just bought a 99 Prelude (Manual). Everything is stock except a Magnaflow exhaust and Momo steering wheel. Pretty decent shape, few surface imperfections. Leaks a bit of oil at the left side of the valve cover gasket. I can feel some...

    So, I blew a head gasket after doing some cooling system repair and forgetting my rad cap on the driveway... Yeah stupid... So Im finished replacing it and am cleaning and putting everything back together. Specifically, the problem I'm having is that I've got the 2 camshafts back onto the...

    Hello all as you have probably seen in my last posts i have been having trouble with my timing belt for some time now. I did figure out how to get it over the cam gears after alot of messing around with it I found that I could move the gears very slightly to get just enough room to jam the belt...

    Hello all. As you might have seen last year I posted about how I had a blown b21 and a running b20a3 block from the junk yard and I was going to put the b21 head on the b20a3 block and Ive done it and I had it running for about 5 minutes the other day. The only Issue Ive run into so far is...

    When changing the timing belt, does the valve cover come off or not? If it does come come off, then does it make sense to change the valve cover gasket at the same time as the timing belt is changed?

    I'm going to have the timing belt in my 1999 Prelude SH replaced because the previous owner doesn't know when it was last replaced. I don't plan on doing many power upgrades because it's a type SH, and it's just going to be my daily driver. I read that the original auto tensioner that it comes...

    Hey All, Just bought a 97 5th gen Prelude and I love it—I always liked the look of these cars and now I'm happy to have one to drive when it's too cold/rainy to ride my bike. This car is a 5 speed, has 219,000 miles and it drives smooth, looks great (for an 18 year old car) and is a lot of...

    A couple of weeks ago I replaced all oil seals due to a camshaft seal leak. I did full timing belt service (tensioners, water pump, all belts etc) at the same time. Somehow I made a mistake and tightened the timing belt tensioning pulley (no 18 here...

    I've had this thing for a few weeks now. It's a 2010 C350 Sport. Unfortunately it was time for something more reliable and in better condition. Last October the balance shaft seal blew out on my Prelude at highway speed. It emptied all the oil within seconds and destroyed my cylinder...

    So I just finished swapping the timing belt on my 95 SI and I thought everything sounded great. After taking it for a test spin to the store, however, it seems that my engine is super overheating! Not sure what could cause this...didn't have any such problems before so... Could this be a result...

    Hey all! In the middle of swapping the timing belt out on my 95 non-vtec Si and I realized that the previous owner swapped out all the pulleys! Not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but I can't seem to get the crankshaft off. The pulley bolt came of super easy, in fact so easy its scary lol...

    I know you all are going to say search the forums, so I will start off by saying that I did and I have found nothing. If it is there I apologize. I just got into the prelude game and just sold my Ej8 civic. I bout the prelude for $2,000 off an evident crackhead and rebuilt the engine and bout...

    Hi PP members, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I'm having with my 1996 Honda Prelude VTEC. I had just replaced my Throttle Body mounting gasket and my car was running GREAT, then next on my list was the Valve Cover Gasket which I replaced no problem but once I started my...

    Hey all, I have a few noises coming from the engine that have been bothering me. Before I just start ripping parts off, I was hoping you guys could narrow my search down a bit for me. 1. Slight ticking beginning at 2000rpm. Doesn't really sound like valves. Best way I can describe it is...

    okay im sick of searching and reinstalling my t-belt over and over to get the same problem. new belt, new kstuned h22 manual tensioner, w/ old auto tensioner assembly (pulley). I put the belt on, line everything up, tension it, crank it by hand and its still lined up so its on time, but the...

    Alright so long story short my timing belt snapped the other day going like 35-40mph. I havent done a leakdown/compression test yet. If the results turn out bad, how much is labor going to be for new valves if i buy all parts ahead of time and have the head out of the car? Should i replace...
