Try changing the gas filter - could be a clogged filter, and draining a bit out moves the blockage out of the way.

SOURCE: 1990 Honda Prelude. Low idle after warm up.

Hopefully fixed the problem by setting the idle a little higher. I think the IACV is ok.

SOURCE: how to drain a gas tank in a 95 honda prelude

I woulldn't worry about that fuel too much. Let me know if you have done anything to the motor, i.e., cleaned the spark plugs, checked the oil, water/radiator fluid level...corrosion on the battery. What does it sound like when you try to start it?

They make products to add to the gas...fuel stabilizer for example.

49lbs I believe but it should tell you in the manual or goto a Kragen store and just flip thru a Haydem or Chilton repair book real quick.

SOURCE: where is the transmission dipstick on a 1990

I only know about the dipstick for the automatic transmission.
It is located to the passenger side of center and is burried dwon very deep - you almost have to reach full-arms-length down, between hoses and air duct to reach it. It has a wire loop handle usually covered in orange/yellow rubber. All total it is about 6 inches long when removed. It is so hard to find that I thought mine was missing and bought another one before I found it.

Runs great, but stumbles(200/300 RPM)at idle


Thats usually a bad symptom. Burnt valve. Do you see white smoke when you first start the car in the morning? If so valve guides and and valves need work. I just went through it with my car. I removed the head and had it overhauled 2 hundred bucks. and now it runs great. Good luck P.S if you have a shop do it it will be 14 hundred.

Sounds like it could be a Main Relay (with controls the fuel pump & others). Look it up - on the '92 models its under the dash near the steering column.
