1998 Prelude engine light

My 1998 Prelude's flexible pipe
was welded(replaced)and not long after the engine alarm light comes on. I checked out what it could mean, the manual said not to drive and it could be an exhaust problem. When the light is on the engine will not rev up. After cutting the engine for a minute the light goes out and it runs just fine..
The light alarm looks like an engine and is yellow..

Good day.. well thats the problem on vehicles that runs on too much sensor, just a little trip it wont let you go but after you force it, it will be just fine. its just a warning light and it shuts off after means you are still doin good but if it wont shut then there really might a bigger problem. hope this helps, have a nice day

What is the right exhaust to use for a high compression setup on an h22a?


for exhaust, if you want stock looking then get a prelude muffler and have a shop make the piping the same size as the prelude exhaust (which is 2.25 i think?)
if you want sleeper exhausts then
get two 2-1/2" dynomax race bullets $27.95 ea. from summit. and a Magnaflow street muffler in your style of choice. $120?? get 1 race bullet welded in just behind the cat or header and the other back before the first 90 degree bend and the muffler welded on.

This is the best way to make a super sleeper. Magnaflow's are super quiet.

Race bullets act as resonators. they are only available in 2.5" in/out but thats ok.

1998 Lincoln Navigator, brake light on, filled fluid resevoir light went off, next day came back on. Brakes spongy. Replaced pads front and rear at 87,000 miles, currently at 111,000


Not completely sure here as i cannot see it but i would hazard a guess and say that the master cylinder needs changing ,but check the fluid level first and if low again then you have a fluid leak but where ?? could be a caliper seal or the master cylinder leaking out of the rear seal and its being sucked into the air intake via the servo vacumn pipe?? could even be a flexible pipe split or a damaged brake pipe ,Evan if pads on metal you should still have a hard pedal ,Have a good look around to see if its leaking first

All electronic accessories work when key is in


test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

I have a 1998 honda prelude h22 vetc automatic with 178K the motor runs fine but the transmisson when i put it in reverse i knocks the it will do fine threw first kinda slip in second and then not go into...


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.

Exhaust problems


You need to replace the catalitic converter. If you try to weld it the heat will destroy the interior anyway.

HARD STARTING


Hello and thank your for choosing fixya.com. As far as your car being hard to start in the morning, you may have a dying batter.Look on the battery for a date (which indicates the date of purchase) There should be a whole on the month, and day of purchase. If there isn't any, have the batter tested. You may need to replace it. Also, make sure that the battery terminals are clean and tight. Make sure that the wires on the starter are secure and as clean as possible as well. Check for frayed or damaged wiring. For the exhaust, it sound like you need to replace the donut in the manifold (exhaust). It's fairly simple to really so long as you can get to it. Disconnect the exhaught pipe from the manifold (should be 2-4) bolts (usually 3) and take out the old donut (if any of it's left) making sure there are nothing left of in the exhuast pipe. Put the new donut in, and bolt the pipe back to the manifold (see repair manual or parts dealer for torque specifications).
I hope this information deem useful in the repair of your Honda. I thank you for choosing fixya.com. Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments, or need further assistance.
