Pull the spark plug wires out of the number one and number 4 cylinders, then pull the spark plugs out aswell and connect them to the wires they go to. then hold them two the engine block and see if you have a good strong spar/ark.......if not then ur distribortor crack is ur problem, if it does spark take all 4 spark plugs out of the engine and hook up a compression guage and check the compression, if good then check the fuel systesm, fuel pressure regulator/fuel injector/most likely not the fuel pump....if compression is bad then pour a tea spoon of oil in the cylinder that has low compression, do the compression test on that cylinder again, if the initial low reading goes up then its ur piston rings or ur cylinder wall, if it stays the same then its ur valve seals,valve guid,vlave seat carbon build up, check valve train may need a head job

2and3 cylinder not firing

Have you checked compression ?
Both engines are interference style which means you can damage the valves if the belt breaks while the engine is running.

Honda Prelude 2001, 2 codes seem to pop up all the time, P0420 and P0301. What has the to do with the other? Can the Catalytic converter cause a miss fire?

Hello: Sir, the 301 is telling you that you have a mis-fire on cylinder #3, You may have a bad spark plug, or bad wire going to #3 plug or you may have a ignition unit that is not firing #3 cylinder, With the #3 cylinder not firing it caused the 420 code that means the catalytic converter to be below acceptable efficiency for emission standards. Repair the 301 before you replace the converter

Cam belt Snapped Honda prelude F22b 2.2 si Auto

did you continue to crank it to start ?
did you hear anything other than usual starter noise ?

you may have gotten lucky if no clanking or clicking noise ---don't try to start it again though

and that is timing belt not camshaft

for future knowledge when considering a vehicle for purchase ---ASK or find out if it's what's called an interference motor or the non interference design ---if you snap the belt on an interference design
alot of twin cams are --but I see a trend from automakers to get away from this --which they should
then albeit some or even major damage can occur ---the 91's civics 1,6 Single over head cam is a non interfernce design --now 1989 or 1992 on well that's another matter
I love my wifes 1991 civic dx ---to date only things ever to fail was the distributor and the timing belt and tensioner ---ps --think about replacing the water pump --front crankshaft seal as well while
you are in there replacing the timing belt ---do a coolant leak down test too --= 5 minutes
to check intake gaskets etc and head gasket --opportune time for a replacement
Yoy can buy the entire engine gasket set generally cheaper that a few individual one and keep
the others for future or give them to a new owner Someday --good 1 st cars --they are capable of 250,000 + easy ---key to longevity ---add an oil cooler with cooling fan set at the right temp with
fan --even better if you live in the mtns like I do

I need the piston firing order for a VG30E or a VG30ode

My sincere apologies for the extremely delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.

1. Non Turbo =VG30E. Turbo = VG30ET. In any case the Engine Cylinder numbers, Firing Order, and Distributor Connections are the same.

For the 3.0L:
Firing Order:
(back of engine)
(front of engine)

2. I am not sure what what "cam adjustments" you were looking for. I am sure you probably have taken care of that or found what you were looking for. However, in most cases the person is really asking about the Timing issue.

Click on the following Link for the Timing Belt/Chain Diagrams.

Again, my sincerest apologies:

Timing belt is hard to find

you should be able to call the honda dealer and give them the VIN# to the car and they should be able to pull it up for you.
