Go to a local junk yard and pull the computers and the complte wiring harness out of a car with a vtec, your old computer will not work with that engine you need to replace all the electrical wiring harnesses

If you are talking about just plugging into the speed sensor yes. A VTEC and NON-VTEC are one and the same.

Go to your local library and ask the Librarian to get you on-line to the Automotive Repair Reference Center, and then to the EBSCO database...you will find all of your wiring diagrams there.

Will a 1993 prelude automatic transmission fit my 1992 honda accord


If it's the S model, it *should* as it has a F22 motor in it.. the Si and SE has a H23 motor, and the VTEC has a H22 motor. I have heard of people using the F22 transmission on a Prelude motor for longer gearing at highway speeds (per Honda-Tech.com), but I haven't tried the combination myself

I am getting a used engine because my h23a1 blew, I was wondering if there are any components I should replace during this process.


ok so hear me out, DO NOT! i repeat, NOT buy a h23... honda stopped making this motor completely in 97 these are the worst motors in the world! i know, your rod bearing blew, I KNOW! ive donr 30 of them. Buy an h22 swap for your car... or just the motor.. everything bolts up the same...then if you wan the performance wire up the vtec... 92-96 preludes came with the option of an h22... if you could find one out of your year model and not out of a 97 up, that would be best so all your vaccum lines are the same... youll have to use the h22 harness and ecu.. if its standard, you need to use a standard h22 harness, if its automatic, use an auto harness
hope this helps
replace the motor mounts that are bad

Does a h22 motor just drop in a 91 accord , is there anything i should know


You will need to know if is a h22a or h22a4. The h22a has the kind of fuel injectors that you'll need with your current set up. Also, you'll need the ECU. If you are putting a 95 or newer h22a in the car then you'll need a P13ecu to run the Vtec. You'll also need to run power to the vtec solenoid on the h22. If you're using a 96 or new Prelude engine it will be OBD2, your current wiring is OBD1. Your best bet is to get a 92 thru 95 H22a only.

I have 02 accord coupe and it says VTEC and automatic!! How do I know if the VTEC is connected!


ok lets break this down
Vtec= Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control

if you look on the the motor on the left side youll see 2 things the distributor and the vtec solenoid.. the vtec solenoidif the smaller of the 2 thats it m8 theres 2 wires running from it .. all vtec does is lift the cams on a high 3rd lobe :) rides in the middle of the 2 smaller cam's on a automatic it should pop around 5.200 rpms on a honda ecu thats not tuned.. also a exaust helps or a intake that produce a higher tone thats unmistakeable when vtec hits.. its a beautiful thing hit me up with any! honda stuff ive done swaps to my 92 prelude si 2.2l vtec and many more so i know a honda engine and wireing like theback of my hand

I would like to replace my 2.3 prelude engine with another to fit


You can go on eBay and get an f22b DOHC (non-Vtec). They are about $300. less and have the same 160 HP. All you really need to do is swap your intake (because you want every vacuum hose going back to it's original position and the JDM fuel rail is on the wrong side compared to us in the US). You'll need your old engine's wiring harness because theirs are cut out and you don't know if you're getting a motor that was automatic or manual. Certainly keep your old engine right beside you as you do the swap because you'll need your distributor since you don't know if theirs had an external coil or internal coil. I've had 3 of these JDM motors in my racecar, it's the same power, just seems like the peak HP is later in the rev, like maybe less torque but more top end.

1994 prelude h23 2.3 non vtec 5 spd at start up no cel- smooth idle. under accel it jerks and hesitates but rpms stay solid, however unmoving. strong smell of gas. low power. after driving a few minuted...


Try replacing Oxygen sensor (top of exhaust pipe just rear of engine; 22mm ring-spanner job after cutting wires); though normally comes up with Code 1 on the MIL, this is the right bunch of symptoms.

93 honda prelude dohc vtec engine will not can be push started


Sounds like you accidently pulled the thin wire from you starter motor. Look at the connections at the end of the solenoid, mounted on starter motor.The thick red wire is Battery + next to that connection is a smaller male push- on terminal, locate loose wire (thin) in the same area and reconnect to male push-on terminal on solenoid or check if earth cable between body/battery to engine wasnt removed in the process.Also some vehicles you have to engage the clutch before starting, check for a switch located on clutch pedal where master cylinder connects to clutch pedal (Is clutch switch mounted and wiring connected?)
