My 1997 honda prelude sh engine just dies, help me?

Hello my 1997 honda prelude sh engine just dies while driving. It has died at different speeds, after just starting, and after driving a while. Most of the time it will restart again; but sometimes I have to retry a couple of times to start the car. Once in a while, I will have to pull out the key, open the door...to get the car started.

The only way to For sure fix this is to have a Mechanic run a Diagnostic Check on the Entire car to locate the Problem. Fixing small things here and there will not get you anywhere with this Honda.

You need to check the tcm for codes too. The s3 light is like the check engine light for the tcm. The VSS code might be your problem.

Engine dies while driving


Start your car and shake your key while on and car parked, does your engine die?? When the vehicle stalls while in motion does your speedometer go to zero?? are some of the lights on the instrument panel not lit when the vehicle stalls?? If yes is the answer to any of these questions, its a possible faulty ignition switch!! The switch's internal contacts are severely corroded or arched. Therefore intermitted power failure to vital engine electrical components cause engine shutdown while in operation. The problem usually increases in Hotter weather. As for your tires, they may cause this due to increased road vibration causing the switch to fail more frequently. Call your local honda dealer with your VIN# at hand for info on this recall and if your vehicle has been repaired!! They may repair it for free. If not, the switches range from $45-$95. Hopefully this helps

Engine dies


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

1997 honda prelude h22a4 timing belt


I do not think the original problem even matters at this point since the engine is probably broke with valves running into pistons.. when you fix it replace every thing that is broken.. and .. just getting in there and replacing the belt can alert you to any additional coming problems like the bearing going bad in the tensioner.. always check or replace the tensioner if there is any doubt as to its condition.. good luck.
