Question about 1999 Honda Prelude
When i start the car up and then go for a drive its ok if i step on it. but if i go for a good drive. Eg: 45min it starts 2 cut out. it feels like it wonts to go but it just wont.. can some one plz tell me what is going on. im thinking maybe fule pump..???
I would suggest checking the vehicle trouble codes to see if any have been set. On the prelude you need to access the diagnostic terminal which is located behind the center console near the accelerator pedal. Once you have found it just jumper the 2 terminals together with a piece of wire,an alig. clip, paper clip whatever works) then turn the ignition to the on position and looking at your dash lights the check engine light will flash a sequence of times to indicate what the trouble if any is.You can get complete instructions and very good info on your vehicle by logging onto Autozone.com. Enter your year,make and model and you will be able to get repair info on your car. It will also tell you how to read the trouble codes.

That is a good place to start. The fuel pump over could be getting weak on long drives. The Throttle body should be cleaned. The problem could be from a Sensor sticking when getting hot. Such as Mass Air Flow, Idle Air control, Oxygen Sensor, Camshaft position sensor, Crankshaft position sensor. ecu, ( Electronic Computer ). I would take to the local shop and have a Mechanic check it out.
