Question about 1996 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

A very quick oil leak - Is this my galley plug?

I drive a '95 Honda Ballade (luxline). I've run into a bit of a problem: When I start the car there is a discharge of oil so that in a couple of seconds I'm left with no oil at all. I'm told this is a problem with the galley plug. How big of a deal is this and what should it cost me to fix?

I have a Honds 150 (carburettor) Ballade Luxline. Won't start - no spark, but engine cranks. Ignition coil? Main engine relay? Please help.

The most common time to have a no-start condition in a Honda is after a hot sit, like when you pull up for gas or a quick run into a store. If you are unsure you can duplicate this condition at home: Use a piece of stiff wire to hold the throttle linkage at a set position and set the engine speed at 2,500 rpm. Let the engine run for about 20 minutes with the hood closed. Then remove the wire and turn the engine off.

Oil leak front upper driver side off engine

There's a galley plug behind the accessory mounting bracket in the head this plug has a large O-ring that goes bad needs to be replaced. This galley supply's oil to the injectors and is under high pressure when running. It will make a mess when you replace it and it is a lot of work to get all the stuff off to get to it probably should do the one on the other side while your at it. Also this will make the truck hard to start (gas on a rag will make it start easier either is too unpredictable) after the repair and run rough for a little while as you will be introducing air into the system it will work itself out after a good drive. I believe the plug has a 1/2 inch square drive hole in it.

Honda ballade luxline auto 1996 does it have a clutch.while i am driving it is busy sliding when changing gears

It does not have a clutch in the true sense of the word, it has a torque converter which are two two dishes with vanes in them and the one drives the other by means of fluid. If the fluid in the torque converter and the transmission is low or the linkages or downshift cables are out of adjustment, you will have the symptoms of a "slipping clutch".
