I have a 1986 honda prelude 2 door 2.0 motor and automatic. my starter just went and i need to take the old one off to put the new one on but i took off 2 bolts am i missing a bolt that it still wont come...

If the starter has never been replaced, it is probable seized onto the transmission. Try spraying penetrating fluid, or WD40 on the area its seized on, and use a prybar to remove the starter.
I hope this helps

How to put tramission fluid in a 1996 honda passport automatic

It has a sealed transmission. Call your local dealer to get this taken care of, it requires a special pump to change the fluid. The cost of the service depends on the mileage. For example, when i had mine serviced last it only cost me $20, but it took an hour.

1986 Honda Prelude Problem where does the automatic transmission fluid go in a Honda Prelude 1986 automatic car?

There is a dipstick in the transmission down by the radiator. It is yellow in color. You add the fluid thru the dipstick hole. Check the fluid with the engine off.

Honda prelude a/t transmission

Check transmission fluid, our cars are pretty low and unfortunately automatics transmission sit pretty low so its possible you have a leak below or are just running low on transmission fluid.
