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.

Honda Civic car will not go over 20 miles per hour and doesn't and doesn't go over 3000rpm stopped in park or even driving after 10 miles


This is known as "get me home" mode/limp mode.
It is designed for you to get the car safely to the side of the road. Needs to go to a garage as there is a fault somewhere which will probably need attaching to a computer to investigate.

1997 honda crv. wont start


which engine??????????????????
one of those is false. i bet. ever the the 60k mile tune up this decade ? Yes, good, no?, well, what did you expect?
driving honda's top death is just that....see end. below.

my guess is you are doing one test wrong. , (i cant see you, so...)
THE ROPES: (called basics ) order counts big time.

1-good engine? (compression at 150psi or more x4? or x6 if V6.
2-good spark at all cyl. and timing right. check timing.
if timing of spark is way off the cam belt slipped, no service ever done is cause.
3-good fueling, it runs. (if not flooded (is it) test fuel does work here.
in this step.

turns off driving, but how did you do that, if it wont start?????
my guess is the stalls were the preamble to the end death


exceptions, to above. ( 1st CAT ,is rare)
1: CAT melted. (there is a cheap simple test ,ask)
2: ISC stuck closed, (Aka; iAC electric) use 10% throttle to mimic this bad part and car starts easy , this trick is in the operators manual.
3: EGR stuck wide open, see 10% above, trick. or clean it.
4: engine flooded, see opr. guide for WOT cranking
you crank at WOT. wide open throttle, and EFI cuts all fuel, clearing
the flood.
so, do you look at spark tips for BAD COLOR or soaking wet with fuel.
Look at them. (they speak volumes)

old spark plates and winter hate each other..
do the full tune up, filters ,cap rotor, wires and plugs. and magic happes, and if the timing belt is old, BOOM
the HONDA IS NOT FREE RUNNING at all.
that means ,skip belt service, a $25 belt can wreck the whole engine.
or at the least just bent valves,
on this engine, my cylinder leak down tool comes out 1st.
(your symptoms)

95 liberty also cuts out while driving


Sounds like either a catalytic converter starting to become blocked or at the other end it could be the fuel filter becoming pluged. A fuel filter will start to plug and a slow flow will starve the motor and cause it to die by not allowing the delivery of fuel to be consistant enough. Good luck and have a good day.

1997 Honda Civic dies while driving but will restart


It sounds like your car needs a good solid tune up. It sounds like the injectors are fighting to get fuel so the slower you go the chances of you stalling is even greater. And the faster you go the fuel system is just getting just enough fuel that the car needs to keep running.....I hate to say this but it sounds like you need a tune up.
