86 Prelude Issues

I just bought another prelude this time its an 86, My other one was a 92. Are there any typical problems the 2nd gen preludes have? like i know certain cars have head gasket issues (dodge neon) and others with oil leaks from certain causes. Just wanna check over anything that might be a typical problem before doing anythin else. Thanks

I have an '86. Some problems I've had are:
-the speedometer stopped working
-power windows are awful
-e-brake keeps breaking
-and rust around the gas cap
but my car has 375xxx kms lol

hope this helps

The only issue other than my extremely poor gas mileage(7 mpg) is the rust around the gas cap.
An automobile was mentioned in the Bible: Paul said they were all together in one accord.

poor gas milage... humm i've not seen many with poor mpg. i get 35 my self with my 86 2.0Si i love it. zips up to 100 easy and rolls to 125 mph(the lady wouldn't let me go faster.) how ever its got the usuall oil leaks and sunroof problems. that an my CV joints are starting to knocker around tight tight turns so i've been taken easy. give her a small tune up and see if the MPG doesn't skyrocket.
