Full drain including the Torque converter or just the fluid in the pan?? Makes a huge difference. Also all fluid levels are checked with the transmission fluid hot. The pan holds about 2.5 US quarts, add two and check the dipstick I=engine running in park, add until it is just at the bottom of the safe zone and drive the car get the fluid hot to the touch and recheck and top off as needed.
Sounds like you are having a thermostat problem. It sounds like it is sticking at times and you may also have a bad temp. sensor. At times, if the thermostat sticks in the closed position, the sensor in the outlet side of the t-stat housing will not read the proper engine temp..Next time it gives you problems, lift the hood and carefully check the temp. of both of the water hoses to the radiator. If the top hose feels hot and the lower hose is only warm, then the t-stat. is stuck in the closed position and needs to be replaced.
This is a common complaint and is caused by the seals in the transmission leaking fluid pressure. Try this, drain the fluid and refill and add a can of LUCAS OIL transmission conditioner, it may soften the seal up and cure the problem for awhile.
If it's the S model, it *should* as it has a F22 motor in it.. the Si and SE has a H23 motor, and the VTEC has a H22 motor. I have heard of people using the F22 transmission on a Prelude motor for longer gearing at highway speeds (per Honda-Tech.com), but I haven't tried the combination myself
if you can charge the battery and drive it for a while then sounds like the altenator has failed and is not re-charging the battery, good way to test is to charge the battery, start the car and turn the light on, if everything is dimm or the motor dies there is little to no charge voltage, and will require altenator work
Its probably your speed sensor mounted on the back side of your transmission on top of the final drive gear. Its the sensor/plug located just under the shift linkage. Make sure its bolted down tight and check for any loose connections.
