97 Honda Prelude, when using the A/C the car overheats when in stop and go traffic or stopped. If I go 50 mph or more the car is fine with the A/C on. What part do you think needs to be replaced

is the cooling fan working with and without the a/c on.this could be the problem and is it spinning fast enough.if its starting to seize up it won`t be turning at a fast speed like it should.with the a/c on it puts a load on the motor that causes it to work harder thus run hotter.another thing to check is the rad flow as if its not flowing enough coolant it can cause this as well.have you changed the thermostat as if its not working properly it could be not opening as it should again causing the motor to run hotter.

I have a 1986 Honda Prelude with a A18A1. I'm having issues with it, the engine runs rough until engine speeds are above 2000 RPM's then it runs like a champ. Put new spark plugs in and fuel additive....

Is the cap and rotor in good shape? Doesn't sound like a vacuum leak. It's possible there is a problem with your distributor but not sure what. Is the timing belt in good shape?

Engine dies

this sounds like a fuel pump issue. It could be the pump, or it could be the Master Relay.

1992 honda prelude transmission wont go into gear

Sounds like the pressure plate! Try this, rev the engine for a sec then when it starts to slows down try to put it in reverse - if the gears grind, its the pressure plate which will come with the clutch kit for about 125-175.00.


*rack and pinion is steering not trans! Separate issue??
