  1. First time Prelude Owner, Auto transmission questions.

    5th Gen
    Hi, I just bought a cheap 1999 Honda Prelude Auto. The car was cheap because the previous owner apparently had too many cars and was having financial issues so didn't re-register it in January. I did some research before purchase so I am aware of the major issues that the 5th gen lude auto has...

    Hello, I'm rebuilding my 1999 Honda Prelude Type SH and live outside Philadelphia. I will be starting with the transmission and clutch and will then focus on the engine and finally the bodywork. I was wondering if anyone is from the tri-state area and had any good recommendations for where...
  3. D2A4 trans swap with D2M4

    3rd Gen
    Can I swap D2A4 trans with D2M4 I have a 1990 2.0 S with a B20A3 engine. The D2A4 needs to be replaced and the local junkyard has a D2M4 in an 89 2.0 S. I'm pretty sure the 89 with D2M4 also has a B20A3 engine. Would I be able to directly swap in the D2M4, or would I need anything else?
  4. Tranny swap or rebuild?

    3rd Gen
    Hello! I have a 1990 2.0 S with a B20A3 engine and D2A4 manual transmission. Since I bought it, third gear grinds when I try to engage it. Should I try to find another transmission, or can I replace just third and all the bearings/seals and what not? I assume any transmission I can find at a...

    Hey Preluders! First time posting here. Got a quick question for the "pros" out there. My 16 yr old son has a 2000 Prelude, base model with an automatic tranny, and not Type S. When he got it we spent about a grand on it putting new tires, brakes, suspension, flushing all fluids, replacing...

    So I just started putting my trans back together the other day after buying a synchrotech master rebuild kit and it did not come with a mainshaft clutch housing bearing and mine is definitely shot.

  8. Transmission slipping

    3rd Gen
    I got my '91 automatic a few months ago now from a guy who has had all the service records from the past 17 years. The transmission was replaced at around 100k, car now has 200k. He religiously took it into the shop every 3000 for an oil change, every 15000 for a full fluids change. The last one...

(And has since died...

    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...

    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...
