Hello I was wondering if there was a way to check if the Ignitor in a Honda Prelude was bad or not. It is a 1998 with and the engine just died out on me at a stop light. Any help would be great.
Thanks,

Most likely the tranny is shot. you will need to have it replaced or have it rebuilt wich in most cases costs more, by a tranny specialized shop.

Definitely change the transmission oil - could be some rubbish in there stopping the actuators working correctly. If that doesn't work, could be time for rebuild with new friction material in the clutches.

Will a 1993 prelude automatic transmission fit my 1992 honda accord


If it's the S model, it *should* as it has a F22 motor in it.. the Si and SE has a H23 motor, and the VTEC has a H22 motor. I have heard of people using the F22 transmission on a Prelude motor for longer gearing at highway speeds (per Honda-Tech.com), but I haven't tried the combination myself

I am getting a used engine because my h23a1 blew, I was wondering if there are any components I should replace during this process.


ok so hear me out, DO NOT! i repeat, NOT buy a h23... honda stopped making this motor completely in 97 these are the worst motors in the world! i know, your rod bearing blew, I KNOW! ive donr 30 of them. Buy an h22 swap for your car... or just the motor.. everything bolts up the same...then if you wan the performance wire up the vtec... 92-96 preludes came with the option of an h22... if you could find one out of your year model and not out of a 97 up, that would be best so all your vaccum lines are the same... youll have to use the h22 harness and ecu.. if its standard, you need to use a standard h22 harness, if its automatic, use an auto harness
hope this helps

Engine knocks when you go in reverse why?


If it knocks when you go from Drive to Reverse or Park to Reverse than its usually a rear engine mount, Bushing or bolts to engine cradle under engine near firewall in center of engine bay towards passenger side. This is for a single or tourqe knock Which means the engine rotates too far and makes contact with a part of the engine bay it should not, or it is loose enough to make the sound.

Easier to notice in a stick shift car than a automatic test by setting Ebrake and putting car into reverse go from drive to reverse in idle with foot on brake if its knocking only when you go into gear this is the problem.

Does a h22 motor just drop in a 91 accord , is there anything i should know


You will need to know if is a h22a or h22a4. The h22a has the kind of fuel injectors that you'll need with your current set up. Also, you'll need the ECU. If you are putting a 95 or newer h22a in the car then you'll need a P13ecu to run the Vtec. You'll also need to run power to the vtec solenoid on the h22. If you're using a 96 or new Prelude engine it will be OBD2, your current wiring is OBD1. Your best bet is to get a 92 thru 95 H22a only.

1992 honda prelude transmission wont go into gear


Sounds like the pressure plate! Try this, rev the engine for a sec then when it starts to slows down try to put it in reverse - if the gears grind, its the pressure plate which will come with the clutch kit for about 125-175.00.

*rack and pinion is steering not trans! Separate issue??
