I have the same car as u do, and something lie this happened to me. check ur spark plug wires, and ur distributor cap.. check the coil itslef too. This happened to me because my spark plug wires werent sealing tight enough, and there was some "moisture" going on in there.
theres also the possiblility of the alternator being bad.. try turning ur car on with another battery, and once its on, unplug the battery.. with the car on. if the car just dies.. its gotta b the alternator

You either have a battery issue or a starting issue. The battery needs to be load tested. If the battery is faulty it could show 12.6 volts on a meter but 5volts under a load test. Put the meter on the battery and hold it there, have someone else try to start the car and while they start it, read the voltage being drawn. If it is below 10volts. The battery is junk. But if the voltage doesn't change then you probably have a bad starter. NOTE: make sure you are wearing safety glasses and protective cloting while you are testing the battery. If the battery is the problem, it could explode (from low water in cells) This isn't to scare you, just to help protect you.

I have a 93 honda prelude vtec 2.2l drove and parked, will not start, just cranks over. replaced coil, starter, main relay switch, ignitor, plugs, getting fuel but will not start


Do you have fuel pressure? Is 12 volts available to the injectors with the key turned to run (use a 12 volt test light to check this). Have you checked the combination relay located behind the glove box on most Honda models??

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 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.

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?)
