if you have changed the distributor cap,rotor button,spark plug wires and plugs and you still dont have fire then its most likely your distributor.first check the fuses or relays if you have replaced those items.

Replaced fuel pump and filter on a 89 honda prelude and it still will not turn over any suggestions


the reason it wont start is because of the fuel pump relay is faulty.. just run a wire from the inside of your trunk from 1 of the wires on top of the tank to ur fuse box... it will always start from now on....

I have a 95 honda prelude si my car will turn over but as soon as it start its shuts off i know its not gettin gas.But i can shoot starter fluid into the intake and it will crank up fine.i have all ready...


Try the Main Relay - two relays in a small rectangular box beneath the dash, next to the steering colum, with 7 or 8-pin plug to disconnect. The two relays are used differently to start than when running - failure of one relay could lead to starting but not continued running. Look at http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/startproblems.html#mainrelay

...search for the 'EFI Main Relay title (half way down the page).

Replaced in/tank fuel pump.


I have had problems with my 89 prelude. I found that the problem wasn't with the fuel pump, rather the master relay. You will have voltage at the fuel pump with the fuel pump dicconnected, but when you connect the pump and put a electrical load on the circuit, the voltage drops. check current with the pump running and see if this is the case.

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

My 1993 Honda prelude has problems starting in the cold weather. We have replaced the relay like suggested by their mechanic but still no luck. We have had to jumper the wires and that is the only reason...


Try to start with a less expensive procedure. In addition to relay I would check the spark plugs, wiring set and distributor cap. Also coolant temperature sensor can be a problem. Try to warm up the endine block of car with dry heat (hair fan or heat gun, but gently). Sometimes it helps. If it works problem is spurk plugs, distributor cap or coolant sensor. Also would be usefull to chek the fuel filter.
But first for cold weather sometimes it worthy to use the injector cleaner/or octane buster and better fuel which evaporates better and less viscouse motor oil. And of course check the battery.
Good Luck
