i just bought a 98 prelude sh an it had the tranny pulled to fix the 5th gear fork and syncros it was put back in an i was driven around an got on it and it hit 6800 an acted like a rev limiter. i thought they hit 7500.just wondering if that could be somethin to do with the tranny or mabey a computer problem

I just bought a 98 prelude sh. the car runs fine just when i get on it it revs to 6800 then it acts like a rev limiter. i keep oil in my car and i dont think it is in limp mode cuz i was told it would stop at 5200 and not allow vtec to engage. i would have never thought that was a problem until my buddy who used to have one just like mine was with me an said his taced at 7500 and seemed to pull alot harder in vtec. and i agree it will barely chirp second. i was just wonderin where yalls ludes tac at.

Re: tacs at 6800rpms

Do you have enough oil in the engine? Or has it been changed recently?

Re: tacs at 6800rpms

yeah i keep my oil on point and i have no check engine light ive hooked it up to a scanner and checked cuz it was on but for my o2 sensor i put a new one in an its been fine since then. i heard it can go into limp mode but i heard it wont even engage vtec so it stops at 5200 in limp mode but my vtec kicks in but it stops and bounces like a rev limiter at 6800 which makes no since unless thats what its supposed to do but i heared 7500 i was just wondering what everyone elses dose and if im just expecting to much

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

your car has a rev limiter on it for 6800 just like my 97. Your buddies car was probably chips at one point or anyother!

Mine is not chipped and it hits 7500, no problem. But this car from its original owner to me has been babied. I get on it every once and a while and it responds nicely. I change my oil every three months even if it doesn't need it, cause I hardly drive it. I have owned it for about a year and a half now and only put 6,000 miles on it. That would be only two oil changes and I have already done 6. Your car does have something wrong,

Unless you start to romp on the gas before it gets nice and warmed up ( I guess this is the limp mode you guys are talking about?) I once did this and it kicked into v tec and straight back out again, so I immediately let off and never did hit the gas that hard again until the engine temp was at normal operating temp.

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

na start to try and find where the problem is, you don't want to just stomp on the gas right after a cold start. If that is when you are having the trouble or does it happen all the time?

If all the time, you say oil level is not the problem as you always keep that on level, so work your way to what might be the next problem, do you know the condition of your CAT it may be clogged. There are so many things that could cause this to happen, spinning a bearing, etc. Good luck.

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

yeah it happens all the time it drives fine but if u try to take it past 6800 theres a problem it doesnt seem to be the cat or anything that would throw a code i wish it was cause that would make this much easier

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

Do you know your cars history? By that I mean do you know who owned it before you. My cars first owner was a female student at William and Mary in Williamsburg with a very well to do family I get this just from all the paperwork that came with the car they sent this thing to the dealership for everything I mean everything, tires, tune up, radiator flush, tire rotation you name it and this paperwork was handing down to the 2nd owner another female age 27 she bought the car for a daily driver as she has a Integra Type R fully customized show car. She had it for about a year her boy friend painted it and threw on a couple bolt ons like cat back, CAI. I had a great carfax come back on it, so I bought it over the 98 SH I looked at that had way more bells and whistles. I prefer regularly maintained vehicles over flashy. Anyhow I knew this car had a timing belt change done at the dealer at 93K miles, it just helps knowing something about a car.

Like the 04 WRX STI I looked at, the kid and I mean kid sorry hope I don't offend anyone, had no papers, the carfax was okay. But the car was trashed all types of different gauges even mix matched color and manufactures mostly cheap eBay stuff, plus the owner had just turned 20 years old. So I know he ran this car hard and probably without the proper maintenance. Not saying I am perfect in doing maintenance but sometimes I purchase things before it needs them like clutch and flywheel I still havn't installed, brake pads ceramic. I am still waiting to get new rotors before I install the pads, plus now I am picking up items to do a timing belt job.

So I would look into getting a tune up done make sure you set the gap correctly on your plugs, get some new wires even if your wires look good the material inside cracks and you never know what is shorting out, unless you check it at night and see the sparks thats kinda neat. Anyhow also replace the cap and rotor as they may not be cracked but they could be wore out and not making good contact. I would start there, then look into your fuel system. Also look if you have aftermarket parts installed sometimes people don't have them installed correctly and that might be your problem like MSD ignitions, coils that sort of thing. I would do more research on this limp mode thing see what causes it and how you can fix it might even be a write up on it. Good luck and hopefully you'll be hitting 7500 with the best of us.

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

yeah i work at a shop an i bought the car it has been wrecked but thats only cosmetic everything else was stock it had been sitting for a while because 5th gear went so i fixed that did a tune up fuel service the control arm bushings were bad i fixed that along with the o2. now im thinkin it might be the cat because the o2 was bad an i did drive on it for a while im going to test the backpressure when i get a chance an hopefully its just the cat. but i really dont think thats it cuz there is no code an both o2s are reading right. how many miles do yall get on a full tank because i get around 240 an i dont really know if thats normal

Re: revs to 6800 and thats it?

This happened to me...And there wasnt a CEL because whoever had the car b4 me took the CEL bulb out...My problem was that there was a bolt in place of my vtec pressure switch. If you run a volt meter to your C-15 pin of your ECU you can test for continuity above 5500rpm...But ya my lude did that for ever rev limiter at 6800rpm, and you think youre gettin vtec but really your not!
