Question about 1987 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

1987 Prelude weird slip issues.

Hi there,
I have an '87 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si (Standard transmission), I took it to the shop to get the CV boot done, took it home and heard a "Pop" sound when i turned in the a sharp corner. Shortly after drove fine for a little while till i turned a corner in a parking lot and suddenly the car stopped moving.
Now the car will move back and forth but once you turn the wheel it slips back out. So my question is, what can be causing this problem?

The axle isn't seated all the way into the transmission.Inside the transmission is the differential,the axle goes into a side gear,called a spider gear,and slips into splines inside the spider gear.Once in to a certain point,there is a retainer clip on the end of the axle that pops out when seated all the way into the spider gear in the trans,and this holds,or retains the axle in the trans.If whoever worked on the car didn't have the axle fully seated to where the clip popped out,then the axle will eventually slide back out of the trans,disengaging the splines,and causing the vehicle to not move.Good luck.

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
