Icon9 H22a Motor just quit.

I was driving to the western michigan honda meet in my prelude and i was about 5miles away from the meet. And a backfire happend and the carjust died right there. the oil light came on and it was low but not that low so then we went to a neat gas station to get oil. we put it in there and tried starting it. It rolls over but doesnt want to fully start. It fires but doesnt stay running and backfires if you put a little gas to it. Could it be a dizzy? or new plugs? and this is an H22a from a 97+prelude

Re: H22a Motor just quit.

Sounds like your timing belt skipped a tooth on a gear.

Take off your valve cover and check the cam gears, make sure they align on the marks.

If they are off and you need to readjust the cam gears, might as well do the timing belt/water pump and manual tensioner if you don't have one already.

Re: H22a Motor just quit.

Thanks now that i think about it it would make since. The motor only has around 60,000 miles on it. But the thing is i wasnt pushing it hard at all i had just turned on a side street only doing about 25 in second gear when it popped. Thanks for the help though ill check to see if its in time or not.

The timing belt will pop at anytime although usually not after only 60,000 miles. Unfortunately if it did pop, it probably took some valves with it, so you will at least need to pull the head (if the belt is in fact bad). Trying to start it afterwards probably won't do it any justice either.
