I recently worked on a 90 civic and i was able to adjust the idle by loosening the throttle cable near the throttlebody (there are a couple of nuts) and adjust it by moving the nuts along the cable adjuster by spinning them until the car idled well again and the owner has had no problems since
(it was not stalling but was very close to it especially at stop lights)
hope this works for you!

My prelude is reving up and down while in park its a 92 fuel injected


That sounds like the mas air flow censer or the throttle position censor to me, I had a 1991 nissan fair lady z which did the same thing when they went out. Try removing it checking the wiring plugs, and cleaning the plugs and censors with electronic cleaner (you can purchase that at a local autozone)

Have a 1989 honda prelude si cant find fuel filter


Carbureted engines: Two filters; a small one is in the fuel line under the hood; a larger one is located at the rear, just inboard of the left rear wheel.
Fuel-injected engines: the filter is located in the engine compartment, against the firewall, just to the left (as you face the engine) of the throttle housing, and slightly lower (follow the fuel line from your fuel rail, where your injectors are, back to it). It has two fuel lines (in and out) going to it, and it is held in place by a clamp which bolts it to the firewall.
Hope this helps you find it.

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.

Engine dies


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