The engine described has Crank shells but is is more likely to be the big end (Con Rod) shell or shells worn.
If the vehicle is driven with this fault it may throw a leg out the bed i.e. Snap the con rod sending the other half through the crankcase there by completely totalling the bottom half of the engine.

I put my 1989 Honda Prelude engine (auto) into a 1988 shell with manual transmission, and now my revs stay high only when driving and changing gears. Was wondering if it is a vacuum hose issue and how

may need to swap the computer also.. manual computer is different..but yes.. be looking into any vacuum leaks..block off any open ports you find..

1994 cavalier 2.2 oil light on-car shuts off when gets warm

blew something in lower end --oil pump damaged --no oil or low level --check oil pressure then do compression test as well --since knocking noise is usually called rod knock

My 01 honda prelude wont start. It will not crank everything is on there is no dimming, I just need to know what the problem is? Its an automatic

Honda has a lot of problems with main relays. Provided you have good voltage in the battery you can try to see if it will start in neutral, if it does the saftey switch could be defective. Another possibilty is the starter. If you can hold the key in the crank position while someone taps on the starter it may start. If it does then replace the starter.

My B21 is nocking like crazy what could it be?

Wow, you have the rare 2.1. Could be: bottom end (rod bearings), main bearings, piston slap from a scarred cylinder wall (worn rings from massive overheating or no oil). If it were valves it would be ticking, if you have knocking it's serious. If you heard it and didn't run the car anymore you could have got away with changing the bearings. Sounds like your crank is shot and will need turned if you decide to have the engine rebuilt.

90 Honda Prelude misses sometimes

Maybe the crank speed sensor is faulty - would confuse ECU and show wierd rev counter results. Any engine check-light (MIL) or stored error codes?

Starting problem

Had similar problem with a Gemini. Try releasing the petrol filler cap before starting to equalise fuel tank/fuel line pressures.
