Question about 1992 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

Idle probs hi. i have a 92 honda prelude and it has a very high idle when first starting the car, in gear idle drops and stalls (its auto),while driving i have to keep the revs up and also while driving it cuts in and out almost like the feeling when you are running out of fuel so it doesnt completely die just cuts in and out. the car showed the coolent temp sensor code so it was replaced but didnt solve the problem also a new fuel pump was put in and all fuel lines cleaned out but no such luck so far. any rough ideas on what it could be will be muchly apprecitated thanks

Check your idle control valve. You might have to replace it, 80-90 bucks new. Or see if there is an air leak from the intake manifold. had the same problem.

If you are DIY, I highly recommend the repair manual, with the electrical section. filepeep.com if they have it. or, manualslib.com or auto parts store usually carry it. or your library may carry a copy.

I have a 1992 Honda prelude that when it starts up it idles at 1100rpms fine but after it runs for like five minutes it drops idle to 900rpms and as soon as I hit the gas it stalls out..... It starts right...


on a cold start car will idle fast till it warms up then will drop to about 1000 rpm, try increacing idle speed so when it warms and drops it should stay idleing

The idle drops when i put it in gear almost stalling the engine


That is normal, in park or neutral there is no resistance on the engine when you put it in gear there is resistance because the car wants to move. Also when you turn on the ac that turns on the compressor that is run off the belts of the engine so it puts more resistance on the engine. Low idle is not a problem unless the engine dies.

Sounds like it could be a Main Relay (with controls the fuel pump & others). Look it up - on the '92 models its under the dash near the steering column.

1989 honda prelude enigne idles high then low irratic


I had the same problem on a Rover. There was a leak in inlet manifold that was caussing the problem.
To verify, spray some sealant to temporarily seal the inlet manifold .and the eratic idling should disappear for some time.
If it does, you know there is leak in inlet manifold which you can take of and refit with a new gasket.
