my new ...

I just picked up 90' prelude.. so I figure I stop in to say hello. She needs some loving. This what I found wrong (or weird) so far..

shifter knob twists
Shifter knob has holes in the leather that leaves the mech exposed
Windshield wiper fluid doesn't work
Side mirrors don't adjust very well by hand.
Ac does not blow cold
Radio only seams to work with some goofing around..
Andthe e brake stopped working last night

Some of these I might ask with help in the future. Some I already know the deal.

Thanks..

Re: my new ...

Welcome! What do you mean your washer fluid doesn't work, also you have manual or power mirrors? Shift knob needs to be replaced, the ac probably converted to R-134a. These are not major, :knock on wood:

Take some pictures please, we love preludes here.

Re: my new ...

I'm not sure if I can post pictures from my phone. But either way I'm at work right now but yeah, the wind shield washer isn't shooting fluid out when I turn it on. So There's a few to inspect with that I guess. And my mirrors are manuel. And they dont feel like they get too much play. I'll try and post some pictures later..

Re: my new ...

The e-brake sounds like the top of the list of things to fix. Then the radio of course. They'll be time to fix all the other stuff later. Good luck.

Re: my new ...

With a nice coat of paint, some slick wheels and time, you'll have a winner. There's a S Africa member on here that did up his prelude BEAUTIFUL! It's up to you how far you wanna go!

Re: my new ...

Congrats on your new lude! Is that a 2.0 S or 2.0 Si (dual carbs or fuel injected)? Be sure to address that rust around the fuel filler door. The longer you wait the more it will cost to fix.

Re: my new ...

Yeah I'm not sure yet. But I can see how one can get easily excited. Yeah I know about the rust. But the truth is, you can't really tell from the pictures. But There's a bunch of little dings in the side of the car like it got shot up with frozen paint balls or something. I'll probably have to mud a lot of the car. Also. I had a question. Is there a thread or site where I can look up my vin for factory info? I'm not sure if it's fuel injected.

It's easy to tell if it's fuel injected or carb'd. I can describe several things to look for to determine this, but the easiest way is to provide pics...

Fuel injected. See where is says PGMFI on the intake manifold, near the firewall.



Carbs. The air cleaner is tucked behind the engine, near the firewall.

Then, assuming you are in the US, you have a 90 Prelude 2.0 Si. The engine is a b20a5 if it's the original engine.
