Question about 1989 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

Hi There, I have a 1987 Prelude 2.0 Ex Automatik (80kw -103ps) . Over the Last weeks when I start the Car in the Morning and Drive Off the Car seems to Stand Still although its moving. Its Stays in First Gear and When i take my Foot off the Petrol slightly, she finally goes over to the next Gear. As the Car Warms up it gets slightly better until I approach a Slight Hill or I need to Overtake a Car,I have that feeling again as if the Car is Standing Still. She even Kicks into Lower Gears but nothing Happens with regards to the Engine Power. I changed Fuel Filters (Front and Back), Air Filter, Spark Plugs and Cables and had a Oil Change done. As it is difficult to find the Orginal Second Fuel Filter(Engine Compartment) the Workshop changed the Fuel Filter with a Masterpart which is much Larger in Size than the Original Honda Part. Does it make a Difference what Filter is used??? I would really appreciate your Help Kind Regards Samuel

Have you done a trans service sometimes the filter gets clogged [its just a little screen in the trans housing] any leaks? perhaps torque converter is faulty you should have pressures checked but if engine is strong its likely trans problems do trans service first check fluid if it smells burnt replace it

I think you will only be able to find on in the bone yards. I don't know if you checked online, but most junkyards have locator services.
Worst case, I would take the old pulley to a small machine shop and I am confident that they could repair anything that was wrong with it. They may charge you $ 100 or so, but that is much cheaper than a new car and the Hondas are great cars and last forever if taken care of.

You need to start with the battery. It should be load tested to verify that it's good or not. You can take it to a auto parts store to be tested, usually for free.
