Tip & How-To about Honda Prelude

Routine Maintenance Equals $AVINGS$

Just like our everyday lives we do things to keep our bodies healthy, we should think the same way about a vehicle we just paid on average $30,000............( That's how many paychecks?)
Regular checking of ALL fluids under the hood, if you don't know familiarize yourself with these important items....$$$ Check tire pressure at LEAST once a month...$$$. Get in the habit of listening to your vehicle when driving, turning, braking, and turning the vehicle on/off......$$$
Read through your owner's manual, a good time to do this is when sittin' in vehicle waiting on someone. To end this, just think of your car as one of the family, as dumb as it sounds, REMEMBER you've just paid $30,000 for this pesonal transporter, and with a jokin' smile........... Kids are "free"...( you know what l mean!)Good Luck and Happy, Affordable & above all SAFE driving.

Note: This Stupid thing would only let me select a certain make, so the car l put in was my car l drive a 1984 Honda Prelude, still goin' strong..(body a lil rough but hey it's 26 yrs. old for pete sake.)

I have a 1990 f250 4x4 with a 5.8 351w, it seems as if the truck has a loss of power, even during everyday driving (not towing). Are there any chronic well known causes for this with this particular vehicle? Mileage is 136,000 original and truck was well kept maintenance wise. I believe I hear an exhaust leak also. When towing about 2500lbs it is ridiculously gutless! Thanks.


With that kind of mileage - I'd start with a good healthy tune up plugs, wires, etc... replace filters air, and especially FUEL filter then run a good fuel cleaner through it. The only chronic things about 351w is valves, if burned they will give "gutless" symptoms. They are notorious "carbon hogs" - joke between Ford mechanics, "if they could make intake runners any squarer they would"

EAC FAIL FORD FUSION 03


I have an EAC failure on my wifes 53 reg Fusion 1.4 and it's been off the road for 2 months. An independent check showed fault code P2135, which relates to the throttle body but fitting a body from a healthy Fiesta with the same engine didn't solve the problem. I was advised to check wiring to the body but all seemed OK. Took car to Ford who stated that the car needs an updated body and wiring and the parts are on back order with first delivery not due until Jan 2010! Why the car won't work with replacement original parts is a mystery. I'm very disappointed with Ford. Sorry this doesn't solve the problem but hope it clarifies the situation. Have logged this on other websites and with BBC Watchdog!

battery dies everyday


you can only purchase a battery for your vehicle. the only thing a bigger battery will do is drain slower. You might think about putting in an on/off switch on the amp so you can shut the amp off when you are not using it.
