With difficulty! However, I have done it and it is possible. Jack the front of the vehicle up and put it on stands. Remove the left front wheel and remove the plastic splash panals on the inside of the fender well, they are connected with plastic retainers. Behind them is the crankshaft pulley. There are two belts on it, if you have power steering, one if not. Next, from the topside, loosen both the alternator and the power steering pump. They are adjusted with a bolt on the bottom, engine, side. You will know the one because it is in a groove. When tension is off, simply remove the belt from the pully and let it drop down past the engine and pull it off from below. Install in reverse order, lowering the new belt down from the top and guiding it into place on the crankshaft pulley from the wheel well. Inside belt goes to the alternator and outside to the PS pump. CHANGE BOTH BELTS AT THE SAME TIME. You don't want to do this again soon! It's possible to do it from the top without removing the splash panal but is very difficult due to the tight space. Good luck!

timing belts on Honda and acura motors should be changed every 70,000 miles, otherwise you run the risk of the belt breaking and bending valves

The starter of a 1990 Honda Civic is located on top of the transmission housing. There are two bolts mounting the starter to the transmission.

they might need a little modification, but probably not much.

The average is 10,000 - 15,000 a year. I was a Honda Mech for years. Just make sure the timing belt was changed if over 70,000-80,000 miles.

No. The Prelude has a B20A5 motor. The civic will have a D-series tranny. They will not interchange (B and D series parts do not interchange).

The coolant capacity of a 1990 Honda Civic is 7 quarts or just under 2 gallons. It uses a mixture of anti-freeze and water at a 50/50 ratio.

Yes it will. Make sure you replace your motor mounts as they are most likely torn.
