Question about 1993 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

I race a prelude on a dirt track. my problem is intermittent, and i cannot cause it to occur unless on the track, thus making it hard for me to fix the problem. The H22A motor acts like it has hit the rev limitter at revs as low as 3000rpm. Fuel pressure is staying strong, there is no evidence of arcing on plug wires, there is a new distributor cap.....I am hoping to find someone who has had a similar problem and can point me in the right direction Thanks, Joe McNichols

Check the MAP Sensor... I had the same prob. My car would not rev past 2500RPM. I just ended up buying a new MAP sensor and fixed the problem.

Hi back again I need to know why I would not get any compression in 1 3 5 7 or 6 can anyone tell me why cause I just rebuilt the motor a1976 Chevy 350 can you help


Hi Pete:
The very first things that I would check would be:
- the rocker arm/valve clearances. If they are too tight the valves cannot seat and you will get zero compression.
- Camshaft timing - Make sure that #1 piston is at TDC when you align the timing dots.
Great old motors! They were my favorites when racing dirt track stock cars in the 70's.
Hope to hear back from you.
Cheers

Is a 97 2.4L GM motor capable of oval track racing performance. I've heard the oiling system and water pump can't handle it. Also been told that they work fine? What is what?



yes the 2.4 dual cam works well and fits great in most eco stock racing rules. I run one on a 3/8 mile high banked dirt track. The engines are light and so are the cavaliers. The waterpumps are not the easiest but i did not find it near as hard as everyone online cried about to change. Im not sure yet on the oil pump having a fualt to the bottom end issues, i lean more on the counter balance shafts airiating the oil at high rpms.

One possibility is a buildup of dirt and sludge in and around the idle air control valve. The buildup causes the idle air valve to stick.

What is the right exhaust to use for a high compression setup on an h22a?


for exhaust, if you want stock looking then get a prelude muffler and have a shop make the piping the same size as the prelude exhaust (which is 2.25 i think?)
if you want sleeper exhausts then
get two 2-1/2" dynomax race bullets $27.95 ea. from summit. and a Magnaflow street muffler in your style of choice. $120?? get 1 race bullet welded in just behind the cat or header and the other back before the first 90 degree bend and the muffler welded on.

This is the best way to make a super sleeper. Magnaflow's are super quiet.

Race bullets act as resonators. they are only available in 2.5" in/out but thats ok.

I race a 1994 saturn on a dirt track. My car runs


Is it a stock engine?

If so check your ECTS water temperature SENSOR not sender, it's located on the right side of the block towards the bottom drivers side engine compartment.

Change the harness connector to it as well it usually goes bad due to corrosion, the original ects sensor was plastic which cracks, the replacement is 8 bucks at auto zone and is brass.

If this goes bad your engine will run rich, waste a lot of fuel and foul the plugs causing the engine to cut out.

If this is fine then check your ignition system for failures due to vibration.

Ran the engine way too hard


Most of the time when this happends it has to do with valve train like broken valve spring, or bent valve , or even a bent push rod or colapes lifter, or rocker arm. At any rate i think your problem is in the valve train.
