Could be lots of things. Your car is equiped with a way to read the codes. Go and buy a manual. It will be in there. It is as easy as using a paper clip to jump a two pin connector under the glove compartment. It has a blue cover. But you won't know what the codes mean unless you have the book. Good luck. you can also go to your local auto parts store and they can run the codes for you. Just type in the code into google and it will tell you the most likely problem.

When a check engine light appears on a 1992 Honda Prelude dashboard it means the ECU is get an abnormal reading on one of the automobiles functions. Use a diagnostic tool to flash the ECU and find the problems associated the car. The flash will also turn off the check engine light.

Yes, but it will involve modification to the body of the car. Check Prelude forums, the modification has been done and documented in detail.

The diameter of the rims for the 1991 Honda Prelude is six inches. Check out a local car dealership for more information about the car or if interested in purchasing it.

You must use a OBD2 code reader to eset the light. Unless you fix the problem that caused it to come on, it will just come on again.

Considering there were five generations of the Honda Prelude, this question needs to be more specific. The Prelude lineup featured a variety of engines over the years of different engine families, ranging from 1.8L to 2.3L The fifth generation Prelude (1997-2001) featured a 2.2L DOHC VTEC engine rated for appr. 195-200bhp. The fourth generation Prelude (1992-1996) featured two different engine families, the "H" engine and the "F" engine. The "H" engine in the 4th gen is a DOHC design, the 2.2L variant having VTEC, featured in the VTEC trim and being rated for 180bhp-190bhp at the end of the generation. The 2.3L "H" engine was DOHC but did not feature VTEC, was found in the SI trim, and rated for 160bhp. Finally, the basic level trim featured the 2.2L SOHC "F" engine, which also did not include VTEC. The "F" engine in the 4th gen Prelude is rated for 125hp. If you want more information on the older Prelude, or Prelude engine options outside of the USDM, check wikipedia as the Prelude article is maintained by dedicated Prelude enthusiasts.

The primary places for a person to check for a Honda Prelude would be newspapers on local deals to insure cheapest deals. If there is no luck here, check with your local car salesman asking for this model. Also, check online car dealerships, even e-bay for this model

If you are standing facing the grill it is on the front passenger lower side of the engine under the two hoses. It has a yellow ring handle.

Sounds like an engine misfire. Can be bad spark plug, plug wire, fuel injector, or bad coil on plug.

Run a compression check and see if you have a dead cylinder. you should check you timing Check the firing order.

Check engine codes on Honda vehicles such as a 1992 Honda Civic have to be manually reset. To do so, remove the ECU fuse located inside the engine bay.
