Icon7 Prelude Problem!!

Hi , I recently got a 1992 prelude with a h22a type s engine , and i noticed i got a weird problem with it . when i start it in the morning it shakes and revs up and down intill its warmed up . and also it accelerates really really slowly like it takes ages to get it up to like 100 kph and sometimes it might get stuck at like 60 for couple of seconds even when im pushing the pedal all the way down , i dont know if this is how slow its suppose to be or its something wrong with it . and also the engine light turns on when i accelerate fast and it turns off when i start up the car again . Somebody help please , thank you . p.s its automatic.

Re: Prelude Problem!!

Sounds like it's down a cylinder. Mine behaved similarly a few months ago, and it turned out to be an injector. Try unplugging a spark plug, seeing how it runs, and then plugging it back and repeating the same process with the other cylinders. If unplugging a spark plug doesn't impact how it runs then that cylinder isn't firing for some reason. That's my suggestion.

kk thank you so much. I'll try this as soon as possible but if it still doesnt make it better how much u think it will cost me to get it to its normal speed again?

Does kinda sound like it's dropped a cylinder.

Depends on why that cylinder isn't firing. If it's just some carbon buildup on the spark plugs then a new set of plugs will solve the problem. If the plug you remove isn't firing then it could be faulty wires or dizzy. If replacing all them doesn't do anything, then it could be something far more sinister.

It was extraordinarily slow.

As far as courses of action if it turns out it is down a cylinder, first thing to do would be to replace the plugs and wires. That's probably pretty much it as far as easy fixes go though.
