Just my two cents but... it's possibly the same "main relay" problem which plagues many of the Hondas around that time-frame. Hot weather non-starting is usually caused by a faulty main relay. A new relay fixed my '90 Civic. Good luck. The main relay is what sends power to the fuel pump and ignition. If it's faulty, the engine will crank and crank but won't fire. I believe the main relay is typically under the dash on the driver's side. Note that it's inside the car, so it's the interior temperature that causes this problem. As a temporary solution if you're stranded somewhere, simply air out the car as best as possible and it should start again. The solder joints connecting the relay to its little circuit board crack, and in high temperatures will pull apart so the relay loses contact and can't function. One option is to replace the relay with a new one, but that will run you $70 or so. (!) A simple alternative is to just resolder the pins. Re-melt the solder on EVERY pin even if they don't look bad to the naked eye. Pop it back in and you're good as new.
The 1989 Honda Prelude had 4x100mm offset. The 1989 Nissan 240sx has a 4x114.3mm offset...so, it will not fit.
How do i take the fuel filter off my honda prelude si 1989
Please reask question: Where are the VALVES ON A 1989 HONDA? How many VALVES ON A 1989 HONDA? How do I adjust the VALVES ON A 1989 HONDA?
I have a 1989 prelude si and im pretty sure there 15s
The starter on the 1989 Honda Prelude is located on the left side of the engine. It is under the radiator hose that is at the rear of the radiator.
No, they are different.
Coil, distributor, bad wire.
None of the dashboard lights work on my 1988 Prelude. Why?
The fuel pump on a 1989 Honda Prelude is located in the fuel tank. Being close to the tank allows it to pump gas more readily to the engine.
It may be wired wrong.
buy a hanes book
on the 2.0 si and the 4w si
Yes, the 1988 and 1989 Honda Prelude has a VSS that is a cable sending unit that connects to the gauge cluster in the dash.
every 70,000 miles.
Yes, this switch must be activated to allow the engine to start. If this switch has failed, it may function improperly or not at all.
It's hard to say, as the question didn't specify what kind of solenoid are you attempting to fit, and the 1990 Prelude had a mid-cycle refresh which included an improved motor.
should be on drivers side of the firewall
Unless you fabricate them in some way to fit, it won't fit any generation of Honda Prelude.
Honda has a service manual for the 1989 Prelude. I bought mine along with my Gold 1989 Prelude Si, February 1989 Car still running strong 203,000. miles. original clutch! Try Honda dealers, used book stores on line etc... Chiltons has a very comprhensive manual also. Easy to follow
They do if it is an automatic transmission. The Prelude (except Si) has the same manual transmission as well. The Prelude Si has a slightly different manual transmission, but it will still fit into a 1986-1989 Accord.
