SOURCE: need brake help please

When you replaced the caliper, were the posts on the mounting bracket able to slide in and out? They're the posts with the black rubber bellows and they have to be able to expand/compress.

Where is the Master and Slave Cylinder located on my 2000 Honda Prelude

Might help if you gave a clue as to whether you are asking about the clutch or the brakes, they both have both. Open the hood and look directly in front of where you push when you push the brake or clutch. Mounted on that wall under the hood you will see two reservoirs, one is master for brake and the other master for clutch. There is a slave for the clutch attached to the bell housing where it attaches to the engine, and each wheel's brake has a slave for the brakes.

Some companies have made a shared master cylinder, so there is some possibility there would be but one master cylinder. You would know that if both systems have failed together.

I am working on a 93 prelude trying to pull front roters to replace broken lug nuts. but when try to losen 1 1/2 nut cannot get lose and donnot see any locking mechnizm to stop it from spinning off ....

I do not know for sure about the prelude but once you take the lug nuts off of most vehicles, the only thing holding the rotors on is the brake pads. Usually, you can remove a couple of bolts from the back of the calipers, maybe just one and the calipers swing on a hings away from the rotors. One swift kick to the rotor will usually free it up. Who needs a rubber mallet.

1988 Honda Prelude (Maintence)

tire rotation, air filter, breather element,
Timing belt for wear and tear
other belts be it V-belts or Serpentine
radiator fluid (older than 3 years needs a flush and fill)
transmission fluid and filter change. if its a manual transmission then change the gear oil
Battery inspection
Ignition system--- Spark plug gaps,wires,cap and rotor and coil inspection.
Motor Mounts inspection
Other things good for a car of that high of mileage are flushing out the old brake fluid and filling with new....same for power steering.
mostly inspections
Last but not least... put a can of Seafoam* into your gas tank and drive it on the highway for at least 30-45 minutes. congrats on your high mileage honda :-]

Car steering vibrates when brakes are applied at 50 mph.

1. Check the tire to make sure there is not separation, local tire shop can do this. If no problem here, then...

2. Have your mechanic check the run out on the front disk rotors. I believe factory spec is 0.004", check the Honda manual to confirm. Make sure you have him check the replacement rotor run out after installation too. They sometimes get damaged in shippment.

I had this problem with my 1985 prelude. I found both front rotors we out of spec. Replaced the rotors and the problem went away.

What type of pads are you guys using? The number one complaint on cars is brake noise. One of the best solutions is to use quality ceramic pads. You may have cailpers sticking. If you have scorch marks on rotors or pulsation in pedal after resurfacing rotors, this is a good indication.
