That is the reservoir for the ABS unit.

Re: craigslist lude looks sharp..but wtf resevoir is this???

Check out the 3rd gen resource thread - in my sig.

91 trim levels were: 2.0 Si, Si, Si 4WS & Si ALB.

Si's didn't come equipped with ALB. If your Prelude did have ALB you'd have that reservoir and a little ALB light in the gauge cluster along with the ever-failing ALB unit(75% of ALB units die by now lol).

Re: craigslist lude looks sharp..but wtf resevoir is this???

Nothing wrong with auto 3rd gens. In fact, they are fun to drive with the s3/s4 modes. People will always give other people crap about having an automatic Prelude but who cares? it comes down to what you want and what you can get. Remember, these cars are OLD. 20 years old now.

test drive it. If the car changes gear smoothly, then it's all good.

Re: craigslist lude looks sharp..but wtf resevoir is this???

It's all about your preference. Who cares what anyone else thinks. If you want to drive an auto than go ahead. I prefer manual gear boxes, but that's my preference.

Besides, auto transmissions may be less durable, but with a manual tranny you'll eventually have to replace the clutch. And if the auto transmission goes out, you can always convert to manual at that time.

Re: craigslist lude looks sharp..but wtf resevoir is this???

There is a trim level only available in Canada(i believe) called the SE. That came with ALB & 4WS & LEATHER!

Other than that, the other cool trim was the Si TCV --- ALB plus Traction control. y0!

Re: craigslist lude looks sharp..but wtf resevoir is this???

haha I def prefer standard as well! I saw it was 4WS and thought sweeet..but it's an auto and not as fun to drive. Thanks for the replies people! much appreciated. the lude from the top picture seems like a steal with a B20 with like 70k on it. body has 256k that would be my only worry. do we have a section here to post pics from craigslist finds to get feedback from the community? PS-I love the Lude community! so sick we can post anything related to our preludes to get help/comments on things. cheers!-Mark
