Self reving problem???

Ok this is really weird and was very scary when it first happened. fyi my 1991 honda prelude si is a stick shift. when i go to back out i have to give it a little rev before i can let off the clutch(everyone knows that) but when i put it into neutral again it starts this revving problem. it will start at 1000 rpm and jump to 2500rpms. it will rev up and down until i have to turn it off. this doesn't happen all the time. i need serious help cause i love my lude and this is the first technical problem i had with her. please help me asap. BILLY

This possible solution is also weird. I have a '91 Prelude Si also- GREAT car. Do you have anti-lock brake option? If you do, check the fluid level in the anti-lock reservoir. My Prelude did this revving thing twice, and while checking under the hood to see what the heck was going on, I discovered the brake fluid level was very low. I topped it off, and after giving up trying to figure what was wrong, I restarted the car, and no revving problem. I don't know why this is, but it worked for me twice. Countrycurt0

Yesterday my honda starting down shifting all by it's self. It reved the motor really high. The blinking 's' light is on now. What might that be?


You need to replace your TCU located on the passenger side behind the kick panel in the passenage area of the car. It is a square shaped box that controls the transmission and the "S" light on the dash.

Probably the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). Cheap and easy to change (see ebay), once found! Probably on top of gearbox, to rear.

1991 prelude drivetrain problem


Wow, that's weird! If the speedometer is moving, but you aren't, then yes, something in the axle is not connected to the wheel. Were there any weird noises or symptoms before this happened? Either the cv joint is completely shot (u should have heard noise when turning a long time before this) or the spline could be stripped, but that is something I haven't heard of. If the clutch was shot, the engine would rev, but speedo is connected to transmission, so the speedo would not work if the clutch didn't. Let me know if anything was going on before this happened, I have a 91 Prelude (2nd since 1994, love it). countrycurt0

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 .
