Does it even crank? put the old ones back and if it starts then you have the wrong spark plugs or they were not gapped correctly.

My 98 prelude wont sttay on.. i replaced the alternator, batterym spark plugs and wires.... everytyme i get a jump it comes on and as soon as i take em off the car shuts off


Well, you seem to have replaced parts that I would have changed in the course of trying to solve a starting/charging problem.
And a tune up problem.

I would recheck the connections at the battery and clean with a wire brush if necessary.

However, the alternator, if working correctly, should keep the car running after you start it with the jumper cables. There's something wrong there, I think.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

1985 honda prelude will not start


Sounds like a bad starter or teeth missing of the flexplate or flywheel. Is it a stickshift? Can you push start it?

1989 Honda Prelude won't start


I suspect that your spark plug wires or your distributor is going out. Check your spark wires and distributor. To do that take out #1 spark plug wire from the spark plug. Next take out your spark plug then put it in the spark plug wire. Then turn on car and take a look at the spark plug to see if it's getting a spark. Do this with all the spark plug. If it is your spark plug wire I would replace all of them.

Spark plug gaping


Go to your nearest Autozone or other parts house and buy an inexpensive plug gapper. I gap the Honda plugs at .045 .
