Question about 1991 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

1991 Honda Prelude,2.1 litre, EFI, bogs down when trying to accelerate from low rpms. Have changed plugs, wires, fuel filter, checked timing. The car acts like it has turbo lag, but it does not have a turbcharger. I have been told it could be the distributor. Can anyone help/ Thanks.

Hi..this is beacuse of sluggish working of the linkages which should increase the gas flow through the injector when you accelarate. due to the sluggish operation its takes time to increase the amount of gas going to injector. so please check the linkages and tighten it accordingly.

Cuts out while driving


which engine option??????????????????????
sensor 2 is not it. sensor 2 is only a CAT test.
Sensor 1 runs fueling at idle and light flat cruise.
the CUTS out, dont tell me anything.
is the engine stalling?
ever tune it up and not buy the most expensive parts in EFI. map, and IAC?

Cuts out>
do you mean it hesitates and then catches up?
does the engine stall and die?
does the wide open throttle work up hills with full power?
cuts out.
if it is only short time hesitations and then wakes up
that is tuneup time, spark plugs, new, spark wires,
read the operators guide, for 60,000 mile tuneups. filters /spark parts.
if it is tuned up, and only hesitatates
try a new TPS.
if it is a deep long lasting full bog.
then the , fuel pressure is low, check that, the guage costs $20
make sure fuel pressure is at spec, first for BOGS.
the EFI system can not run right with low fuel pressure.

all 0xygen sensors are off line, accelerating so its not that
only the front sensors set fuel rates and never accelerating.
the ECU shuts them down then
and uses the map , air temp to calculate fuel rates.
but if fuel pressure is low, it gets all that wrong.
after all , it dont know its low, and can not adjust for that
and most injectors are useless below 28psi.

What this means is your engine has alot of what they call blow by which means alot of crankcase pressure about all you can do is you can try like engine restore as a cheap attempt to help reduce some blow by or rebuild/replace engine if you try the restore change oil and leave it about 1/4 to 1/2 quart low on oil and add your can of restore if that works you have to do it at every oil change.Restore helps rebuild compression by filling in minor scratches in the cylinders and gives the rings a better seal in the cylinders.It usually takes 300-500 miles to make a noticeable difference if you dont notice it by then rebuild/replace engine..
